Our Start !

In 2007 at the age of 27, I Aurelio Ventrella Jr., found out I had breast cancer. Which was unbelievable, because only 1% of men get this deathly disease. My journey with breast cancer had begun. After all the surgeries said & done, I still had breast cancer. I felt that the only end result was death at times. My doctors decided that I would undergo chemotherapy for 8 weeks on & 4 weeks off. This had lasted for about for long period of time, which was very draining & overwhelming. I did it all alone, kept it from my family & friends because I was embarrassed of having breast cancer. During my days off with chemotherapy, only when I was well enough. I would make an appointment at a traditional salon/spa for facial or massage. I needed the strength to keep fighting; at this point on my journey, I was losing hope. I had met about 14 different types of incredible women in the lounge area, which I had befriended over a period of time. I would meet them on different appointment days in the lounge area while waiting for my appointment patently. They would keep me very entertained with their gossip on each other, stories etc. I even started to look forward on my days off from chemotherapy. They would complain about not knowing their blow-dry pricing until the end of their service. They also felt’s that the hair treatments were an expensive service that didn’t lasts long for the price they where charged. They also mentioned not being able to schedule makeup appointments until the weekend. The traditional salons didn’t have a makeup artist on staff during the week. I would hear this complains nonstop for months, it became embedded into my brain. At that point, I had got an idea! I said to myself, if I make it through the cancer, ill start my own business concept. A concept, that would charge a single price for blowouts, Brazilian blowouts and make up applications. While providing the ultimate level of customer service & and making sure every customer feel glamorous when leaving. Everybody now and then needs to feel & look amazing. That day finally came in 2011, “the breast cancer went into remission”! I went ahead online and had legal zoom process all my business documentation. I had quit my job & took out my life savings. The next step, I found a real estate agent online name catrine. The first location in red bank catrine & I seen became the future home of my new business. My concept of a blow dry bar, makeup bar & hair treatment bar became reality within 3 short months in 2012. Thank you Aurelio Ventrella Jr. CEO & Founder of the oneblowdrybar global brand.
