About Y&L

Y&L Style Bar, created by Nike McDonald, a talented entrepreneur and dedicated mother of two beautiful girls, is a salon for REAL women with REALLY busy lives. My name is Jackie, and this blog is a way for us to share resources, advice, and stories with you on finding unique style in a hectic world. To better understand what Y&L is all about I want to share with you Nike’s motivation for creating Y&L:

“As a working mom of two young children, I live for the escape of date nights and couples nights. One Friday afternoon my husband came home from work and surprised me with dinner reservations for my favorite, albeit very hard to get into restaurant. His sweet surprise left me with exactly 2 hours to shower, get dressed, and put the kids in bed before the babysitter arrived. Simple task right?

An exhausting 45 minutes later I had successfully gotten both kids in bed —not so simple after all! That left me with little over an hour to get ready for my much-needed night out. I quickly called up my hair stylist to see if she could squeeze me in for a quick blow out, but she was booked. Disappointed but determined to pull it together, I dialed my nail salon. I was hoping they could at least take off the less-than-tasteful blue nail polish my 3-year old daughter had lovingly painted on my nails. But they were booked too!

Accepting the fate the beauty gods had dealt me, I resolved to pulling my hair back in a pony tail and just wiping the nail polish off. It was this moment when I thought to my self, wouldn’t it be nice to have a place to go that offered a quick service for busy working women… and that’s how Y&L Style Bar began.”

Y&L Style Bar isn’t just another salon. It’s about helping real women find their style and confidence even when the craziness of life has them on the go… all without breaking the bank. We hope you find this blog useful, and we hope you join us in the journey for rockin’ personal style!
