The Rumors Salon & Spa Family
Debra Mascarenas - Owner/Designer Stylist
Debra is the owner of Rumors. Debra started her career as a student at Mr. Robert’s Beauty Academy here in Brighton. Her first job as a stylist was with Michael of the Carlyle. Four years later Debra left Michaels to open her first salon in 1988. The name of the salon was Nuance, a small two-chair salon in Brighton. Nuance grew and moved to a new larger location. Seven years later Rumors opened in 1995. However, the dream had not yet been realized. “I always dreamed of owning an old building, renovating it and moving the salon into it. I realized that dream in 2005. The building we now occupy was originally a church. The building is over one hundred years old. The renovation took over a year to complete! It’s always a work in progress. It’s been a labor of love and we all love being here in the heart of Brighton.”Debra has been doing hair for thirty years. In that time she has worn many hats, always moving toward the ultimate goal of realizing that lifelong dream. The dream to be a business owner, an accomplished stylist, a mentor and teacher. To have a business that felt more like an extended family. “I think that i have accomplished those goals. I am very proud of Rumors and thankful to the many people who have held me up through the years.”
