Featured Guests

Dana White

Founder & CEO, Paralee Boyd


Product of the owner Dana White. As a native of Michigan she too accepted making hair appointments weeks in advance, only to have stylists show up late and be in the salon for upwards of three to four hours. In 2004 she moved to New York City and as with most of us, finding a hair salon became a part of her relocation process.

To her surprise, she discovered the “Dominican Blow Out” and learned that not only did she not need to have an appointment, she was out in less time than a traditional salon and it was significantly cheaper than what she’d been used to paying. “I no longer had to navigate price, time and reputation. Doing the work of my hair before actually doing my hair, was gone.”

Over time, she saw less hair in her sink when brushing it out and the white flakes on her shoulder disappeared. “Not only was my hair healthier and stronger, I could now afford to get my hair done once, sometimes twice a week.”

The services at Paralee Boyd follow the Dominican hair care model using premium products ideal for strengthening, thickening and hair growth. With our process we reduce the frequency and need for chemical relaxers, as well as stimulate hair growth.

Paralee Boyd was born of the idea that all women deserve timely and quality hair care. Named after Dana’s maternal grandmother, we at Paralee Boyd believe that your hair should not determine the quality of your life. Paralee Boyd is celebrating 5 years of creating relationships with our amazing guests and providing healthy hair care.
