Nellie Davis, owner of Outsider Hair Salon and Studio in downtown Reno, said she started her business as a place where people could feel comfortable no matter their background.

Davis, an enrolled member of the Walker River Paiute Tribe, said she felt that opening up her store to all walks of life helps her celebrate her heritage.

“I wanted to open up the market for something that I didn’t see existed in our community,” she said. “We’ve really always had a foundation of inclusivity and I think a part of that was because I wanted everyone, regardless of how you identify, to be able to come through the door and feel like you belong in a space and that you’re safe there.”
