Twinsburg resident opens boutique after COVID-19 closes salon

Dominique Nixon decided to open her own boutique, Crystal and Cream Boutique, after the pandemic forced her to close her Beachwood salon.

Like so many business owners, Dominique Nixon found her life turned upside down by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nixon, who had studied at Paul Mitchell in Twinsburg and operated Salon Lofts in Beachwood for 10 years, found herself out of work when businesses were shuttered across the state in March 2020.

“When COVID-19 showed up and shut my Salon Loft down, I was devastated,” Nixon said. “The career I worked so hard in and loved and the way I was able to make a living to provide for my two kids was at a standstill, with no income coming in and a big cloud of negative energy and thoughts filled my mind.”

However, Nixon said when she watched the Netflix series “Self Made: The Life of Madam C.J. Walker,“ a series with Akron native and NBA basketball star LeBron James as one of the executive producers, “my wheels were turning.”
