Hamburg Area Chamber Of Commerce Business Of The Month Goes To Morgan & Co

The Hamburg Area Chamber of Commerce would like to congratulate Morgan & Co. on being voted July’s Business of the Month!. Owner, Brittany Outlaw, started nurturing her talents as a hair stylist right out of high school in 2007. Brittany said she always aspired to be a business owner and have her own salon. Over the years, she worked in other salons and built her clientele. In 2019, Brittany made her dream a reality when she purchased a building in Hamburg. With a lot of hard work, she and her family transformed the building into the sleek, fashionable salon that is today. When asked what her vision was for her salon, Brittany said, “I wanted to create a space that everyone felt welcome and comfortable in so they could come in and get pampered and then leave feeling good about themselves.“ Brittany expressed her desire to be a support system for other women so it only seemed natural to provide them with an opportunity to grown their own business as well. For this reason, Morgan & Co. has other chairs available that are occupied by other stylists.
