Atmore native providing outdoor haircuts

Outside of a resident’s house on Roberts Street, Anna Beech is in her element.

The Atmore native on Oct. 14 was doing what she loves, helping make people look beautiful as a licensed cosmetologist with her new venture, Haircuts on Wheels.

Beech, who lives in the Daphne area, has been a licensed cosmetologist for eight years, and is now cutting and styling peoples’ hair outdoors because of the pandemic.

Beech, who graduated from Escambia County High School in 2000, became a fitness trainer soon afterward.

“I did that for years,” she said, adding that she still works out, but doesn’t provide training. “I taught classes, and then I always loved making people look beautiful.”
Beech said she loved helping her clients lose weight by helping them get on a proper diet or exercise plan.

However, she said she was also good with makeup.

“My mom always encouraged me to do cosmetology school,” Beech said. “I didn’t do it until I was 29.

“I’m glad I did it, she said. “I absolutely loved it.”

This new haircut venture came about after Beech was recently furloughed from her airline stewardess job. She was furloughed on Oct. 1.

Beech said she put a post on Facebook and people started making contact with her to have their haircut.

According to her Facebook page, whether it’s your back porch, patio, garage, etc., she can cut hair because following the Centers for Disease Control’s safety guidelines during the pandemic is her No. 1 concern.

Beech comes fully equipped with all she needs. The customer needs to provide an outdoor area and a mask.

Additionally, Beech said she’s soon going to have a chair that goes up and down.

To make an appointment, text or email her at 251-232-9947 or haircutsonwheels@gmail.com.

Men and women’s cuts are $15 each, kids cuts and senior citizens cuts are $10 each.
