As a former pharmaceutical rep, Joezette Hite knows just how prevalent chemicals are in day-to-day life. But as a first time mother-to-be, Hite wanted chemicals out of the picture wherever possible. So in 2010, she opened Crave Spa, an earth-friendly salon in sunny Tampa, Florida. Boasting natural products and a family-focused atmosphere, Crave was designed to build friendships and provide quality nail services in a welcoming space. Hite, a newcomer to the industry, designed the salon “as a client and as a mother,” and with plans to open Crave 2 this year, it’s clear that her fresh perspective has paid off.
