Beauty in Beverly: Newest Neighborhood Spa Sets Grand Opening 

Color Me Beauty Bar, 1810½ W. 99th St., owners Kimberly Buford and Dr. Angelique Jackson will host the shop’s grand opening Sun., June 3, 2 to 6 p.m.   

Offering customers a wide range of organic fruit- and plant-based beauty treatments and products, Color Me Beauty Bar is a nail and skin care boutique that will “color” you with lavish beauty experiences using products that are natural, toxin-free, cruelty-free and environmentally friendly. They look forward to becoming a 100% vegan-operated salon soon. 

As African-American female business owners, Buford and Jackson are excited to be not just a new female-owned business but a new minority-owned business as well. They look forward to serving members of the local community and throughout Chicagoland. 

“When I began my research for what location in the city that I wanted our business to be, Beverly stood out to me because residents here support the businesses in their area,” Buford said. “I am very happy to see our vision become a reality in our new space.” 

With a 22-year career as a nail technician, Buford’s experience spans across several salons including Bliss spa in the W Hotel downtown, Shine salon, Kimberly Coleman Salon and Paris Beauty Salon. She was trained at Dudley’s Beauty College on the South Side. 

Dr. Jackson’s background includes a degree in education. Throughout her 20-year career, she has always had entrepreneurial endeavors that were linked to the beauty industry. “I have a vision of equipping young women with all the tools they need to succeed in life,” Dr. Jackson said. “Color Me Beauty Bar is allowing me to empower young women via mind, body and spirit.”  

Beauty and similar visions have brought Buford and Jackson together to create Color Me Beauty Bar. They look forward to meeting community residents on June 3. For information or to book a service at the salon, email colormebb@gmail.com
