Andrea Peele always knew that one day she wanted to own her own salon. She never knew how it would happen or even what should would name it. When people would ask what would be the name of her salon she would just simply say I don’t know. Internally she knew one day the Lord would give her the name. One Sunday Morning in October 2006 Andrea Peele sat in her home church at the time while her Pastor Preached a sermon titled Beauty for Ashes taken from Isaiah 61 in the bible. Right in the middle of her Pastor preaching the Pastor stops and look’s and says to her ANDREA Beauty for Ashes will be the name of your salon. Exactly 6 months later Andrea opened Beauty for Ashes Salon in Spring Valley NY in April of 2007. Andrea saw there was a need in her community for a salon where healthy haircare, style, professionalism, and continuing education would be it’s standard. After about a year and a half, BFA salon out grew it’s space and relocated to Pomona NY where they remained opened until late 2013. Andrea decided that a break from salon ownership was necessary, and decided to close for two years. However the burden and passion for salon ownership began to burn within so Andrea decided to take the plunge and reopen again. In December 2015 the doors of BFA salon opened again, but this time in Nyack NY.
