The Inspiration Behind Chester James Salon
Chester James Salon was founded by Cylisha Willis with a unique story behind the name and logo. Cylisha says it all started with her father, who passed away in 2008:
The inspiration behind the naming and logo of Chester James Salon is twofold. Chester was my father’s name and James is the name of a close friend’s father who I respect as if he was my father. In 2007, my family adopted the dragonfly as our family symbol as a sign of courage, strength, and wisdom from those family members who have gone on before us. This started with the burial of my grandfather who passed in 1990. Originally from Louisiana, my grandfather passed away in Tucson, Arizona. At the burial site, as he was lowered into the ground, a swarm of dragonflies flew out of ground. As you can imagine, we were stunned first by the beautiful display of dragonflies and second by the fact that dragonflies were not habitants of the desert. Since then, dragonflies have been significant in my family’s lives.
