An’Tyrice Salon and Spa, owned by Angelline Smalls, is the first full service salon and spa in Poughkeepsie, NY. Angelline now owns and manages two full service, high end, salons in Poughkeepsie and Wappingers Falls, NY. Both salons specialize in the craft of hair weaving techniques. Angelline saw this as a chance to flourish and grow her empire by designing and manufacturing her own brand of high quality hair extensions called “Get Jealous Hair.”

The success of Get Jealous Hairline has resulted in many requests for wigs. Most of those requests came from cancer patient survivors who lost their hair as a result of chemotherapy. As a member of the American Cancer Society “Step Into Spring” Committee, and a faithful contributor to the Oncology Department at St. Francis Hospital, this really sparked Angelline’s interest and it became a personal venture. After much research and interview with cancer patients, Angelline finally learned how to make wigs with her very own “Get Jealous Hair.” And later Angelline added natural hair, custom made wigs to her “Get Jealous Hair” line. These wigs are especially made for cancer patient survivors using their own natural hair. Being able to make wigs with the person’s own hair, especially for women who’s experienced hair loss due to chemotherapy autoimmune diseases and alopecia, is a personal fulfillment, not only for Angelline, for her clients.

Angelline has used this venture to continue her philanthropic endeavors to strengthen and expand her relationship with The American Cancer Society, and to develop new associations with organizations such as Specialty Fittings, and Grace Smith House. As a soon-to-be certified member of the “Look Good, Feel Good” program sponsored by the American Society, Angelline is hoping to continue to promote female empowerment, and encourage women to overcome life’s circumstances, by uplifting them and giving them back something that they thought they had lost. Angelline is also a member of the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce, and has been nominated for the female Athena Award for 2013.
