Grove native opens hair salon on Grand Avenue

The sign on the front of Favour Salon is partially hidden by the yellow blooms of a silver trumpet tree. This does not stop customers from traveling throughout South Florida to find Adjua Ellison, the Village West’s newest hair stylist.

Ellison, 32, is a Grove native who opened her salon’s doors at 3648 Grand Ave. in June. In the same location 13 years ago, she worked for another salon and said she always dreamed of owning the shop. During a 13-year hiatus from the Grove, Ellison worked in four salons in Miami-Dade County and received additional training in cosmetology and precision haircuts. Now she has returned as a resident and business owner. Read more about it at the Grand Avenue News.
