Lisa Greco (above) has lived in Northeast Philadelphia her whole life. And for 16 years, she has been a Mayfair business owner. Greco owns Bella Lisa Hair Studio on Cottman Avenue, near Frankford Avenue.
She has been a hairstylist for more than 20 years.
“I always knew I wanted to be hairdresser, since I was probably about six,” said Greco. “You know when you’re in kindergarten and they say, ‘What do you want to do when you grow up?’ I always said a hairdresser.”
Greco believes community involvement is one of the most important ways to be successful – particularly in Mayfair. The success of the neighborhood’s business district depends on it, she said.
