‘Idol’ Fantasia Starting Salon Chain

Salons To Raise Funds For Home For Single Mothers
CONCORD, N.C.—Fantasia Barrino is getting into the beauty business. 

The “American Idol” winner has teamed up with Carolina Panthers safety Mike Minter to open a chain of beauty salons to fund a home to help single mothers.

The driving force behind the project is Minter’s sister, Rosalind Beaty.

Beaty said that she hopes to open franchises that will channel their profits to a faith-based, nonprofit residential home for single mothers.

The first shop is due to open this fall in Concord under the name Imaj Salon and Spa.

Barrino won Season 3 of “American Idol” in 2004.

She recently played herself in the Lifetime cable movie “Life is Not a Fairy Tale.”

The film was inspired by her autobiography about dropping out of high school and becoming an unwed mother at 17.
