So what made us want to start a Sharkey's Hair It Is in Ann Arbor? 🤔
Well, to be honest, we have always loved kids and giving back to the community - so in 2019 we decided to take a leap of faith and join the Sharkey’s family.
As parents ourselves, we loved that Sharkey’s Hair It Is focuses on giving kids and parents a fun, affordable and memorable haircut experience in a nice, fun and clean salon atmosphere that is best-in-class. ✨
So a little bit about us...
My husband Ugo is originally from Lima, Peru and grew up in southern California. Ugo is an attorney by training with additional post-graduate degrees in bio mechanics and motor development. Ugo currently works at the University of Michigan International Center where he serves as an immigration advisor preparing immigrant and non-immigrant visas for incoming faculty and staff and advising units on immigration issues.
I (Catherine) was born and raised in Ontario, Canada. I completed my undergraduate and graduate engineering degrees at Guelph University and the University of British Columbia, respectively. After graduate school I moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan for a position as a research engineer at the University of Michigan. There I worked in biomechanics academic research for more than 10 years before resigning to focus on our family businesses. :)
Ugo and I met in Ann Arbor originally in 2004, and after Ugo completed law school, we moved to Chicago for approximately 5 years, where he worked as a prosecutor and I worked in rehabilitation engineering. After getting married and having our first child, we moved back to Ann Arbor, an area that we have always known and loved.
In 2016, we opened Uno Dos Tres Spanish Immersion Preschool at 1500 Scio Church Road in Ann Arbor (https://www.unodostrespreschool.com/). It is truly a family business, as Ugo’s mom is a well-loved teacher in our preschool room.
About the same time we opened Uno Dos Tres, Ugo started researching children and family salon franchises and met with Scott Sharkey, the founder of Sharkey’s Cuts for Kids, several times over the next 2 years.
After the birth of our second child, we finally decided we were ready for a new adventure and opened Sharkey’s Hair It Is in the Scio Township Meijer store at 5645 Jackson Road in Ann Arbor on June 15, 2019!
We are so excited to be open and offer a full range of salon services to local families.
We just love interacting with our customers, and chatting about local sports teams, their children and local community events and happenings.
And that's pretty much us!
We'd love for you to stop by so we can hear your story. :)
Thanks and hope to see you soon!
