Short ‘n Sweet History:

Raleigh natives Derek and Nancy grew up on the same street without knowing it since elementary school. Creator Nancy grew up in Raleigh, studying cosmetology at the International Institute of Hair Design and graduating from NC State University with a B.A. in Spanish. A budding entrepreneur, Nancy gained a keen sense for the salon industry as a stylist at Classy Cuts Salon – owned and operated by her family since 2000. She sharpened those business skills by attaining her MBA from DePaul University Kellstadt Graduate School of Business in Chicago, before moving back to Raleigh in 2010 and marrying Derek in 2014. Derek is a public servant passionate about quality care in a family-focused environment. Derek’s creative in-salon surprise marriage proposal with the Sweet T Team filled the salon with love in 2013. The salon team continues to take care of many bridal parties and grooms with top wedding experience.

Sweet T Salon is Derek and Nancy’s revamped and re-imagined version of her family’s business, maintaining the Southern hospitality of the original Classy Cuts Salon with an added dash of Chicago’s metropolitan flavor. Simply said, Sweet T Salon aims to be the friendly “Cracker Barrel” of salons. Armed with decades of experience, the stylists have cared for bridal parties, provided healthy perms/body waves, and customized cuts and colors for all members in the family. The Sweet T team caters to casual customers and beauty enthusiasts alike.  Our friendly stylists are skilled at crafting designs that match your personal flair. Through advanced training, they are ready to give you up-to-date looks for your night out or your daily professional look.

      “From our family to yours, we hope to serve you with the highest quality of service in a comfortable environment. Love, Derek & Nancy”
