- About Us
 -
Our company is based on the belief that our customers' needs are of the utmost importance. Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals.
We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry every time.
 
We are girlfriends that are very talented and special to each other. We recognize that life without our girlfriends would be a much darker place. We bring light and warmth to and from each other. We can ALWAYS count on our girlfriends to tell us  to put our big girl panties on, to give us chocolate cake, to tell us we look hot or not and to point out those tiny hairs on our chin... all with kindness and girlfriend love of course.
This is really what My Girlfriends Place  is all about... and that other stuff too.     
 
 
 
Dawn Thompson-Black - Owner / Esthetician
First, I can't believe  I've been enjoying a 31 year career  in the fashion industy.  How did that much time pass so quickly? 
In my early years I was a hairstylist.  It was fun, but after studying at  the Aveda Institute, my skincare career came to life. I fell in love with skincare, and quickly shifted my focus to it full time.
Shortly after my second child was born I decided to stay home for a while.  Returning to the industry is when my teaching career was born. I started to pass on my experiences and education to new cosmetology students around the state.  During my time as an instructor at JCC, I was asked to help create the FIRST  School of Esthteics in the state of  North Carolina.  What a privilege and honor to have been involved in such a task!  Teaching esthetics offered me a unique opportunity to meet many wonderful people in the skincare industry.  
Honestly, I missed taking care of my clients though.  Leaving teaching and returning to caring  for my clients has proved to be a decision I'm thrilled I made.  Expanding upon that passion led to the creation of MyGirlfriendsPlace. 
It's my commitment to bring to my hometown the level of service and  care so many have been led to believe only exists in large cities at high prices.  I feel like I'm returning to my home, bringing with me  all the experiences and knowledge of the last 30+ years in the industry.   
So please come visit us at MyGirlfriendsPlace, and enjoy the latest industry trends along with our own Southern Traditions of offering the best possible care.
