If you want to catch Darlene, you’ll have to move pretty fast! After establishing Oasis Salon & Day Spa with her two granddaughters, Aubree and Adrian, she hasn’t looked back. Having identified a need to help women find their way in the beauty industry she opened City Pointe Beauty Academy in Joplin. She is very proud of her granddaughters and brings much expertise to keeping their performance at the very top of the industry. “Our success is due largely in part to our vision to provide an amazing, high class retreat for beauty with a constant eye on the details of how we would love to relax and be treated,” she explains.
