After a near half-century career, a California beauty shop fixture is set to start enjoying her retirement.
Beautician Glenda Dietzel, 70, is retiring from Carol's Beauty Salon starting this week, with plans to spend more time with her brother, Denny Dietzel, among other plans.
Glenda Dietzel graduated high school in 1967 and attended beauty school in Columbia in 1968. She has been in the game for about 50 years now, spreading her skills from her first job at Mildred's Beauty Shop, her own shop called Glenda's Magic Comb, and the place she's been since she closed her shop, Carol's Beauty Shop.
"I loved having my own beauty shop and working for Mildred; she was so nice to work for and a great first employer," Glenda Dietzel said.
She said she decided to go into the beauty business because it seemed like it would be a fitting job for her, and a good service to provide to others. Though she has enjoyed the many hair cuts, styles and clients, it's time for a change, she said. It will be a change not only her but also her clients, who will be switching over to Carol.
When it comes to her retirement, Glenda Dietzel said she just knew it was time and she's ready to start spending more time at home, playing with her dogs and helping her brother with outdoor tasks around the house, such as mowing grass and cutting weeds.
"I'm looking forward to it because I've been out of it for so long that I really think I'm going to enjoy just being out since we live in the country, and I like the country," Glenda Dietzel said.
Happy Retirement, Glenda!
