Past EDGE Inner City Economic Development (ICED) Loan recipient, Mr. Jamal Arnold of On the Spot Cuts & Styles, announced he is preparing to expand his business and open a barber school in Frayser in mid-August 2017.
In May 2016, Mr. Arnold was awarded a $25,000 EDGE ICED Loan to help resurface the parking lot and fund façade improvement and interior renovations to the 2,500 SF building located at 3147 Frayser Blvd. Total project costs were estimated to be $39,674.
Mr. Arnold’s new barber school, Students 2 Masters, will operate out of 2,400 SF commercial space on Frayser Blvd. The school will include technical training, as well as learning the business side of the industry. Students will develop fundamental and advanced skills to aid in the 1,500-hour certification process.
