WICHITA — A dozen years ago, hair stylist Michelle Biggans Whisman left Planet Hair where she worked for six years to start her own salon.
"I just felt like it was ... the natural progression," she says. "It's time to move on."
And it is again, only this time Whisman is returning to Planet Hair.
"I am not a business person," Whisman says. "I am a hair stylist, and I truly miss just standing behind the chair and doing that."
There's the effort of running her Lady Luck Salon, which is at 1518 W. Douglas in Delano, and promoting it for new clients.
The only thing Whisman says she'll miss is making her own schedule, though she says that may be a good thing.
"We all know that when you have your own schedule, you probably get into more trouble," she says of scheduling perhaps too much time off.
"It was just too easy to do."
Whisman is negotiating with someone who may buy Lady Luck. Regardless of whether it sells, she'll start her new job on Jan. 3.
Her time as a business owner may be coming to an end, but there's something that will always stay with Whisman.
"It makes you have respect for the people who do run the business."
