Tell us how you decided to open your own salon.
We started off in the industry about 10 years ago with our first small salon. We offered all the basics and did very well in our 800 square foot salon. In 2008 with the economic downturn on the horizon, we decided to take a chance and expand. We knew that we would be in a good position to maximize our dollars.
We opened in October 2009 and never looked back. From day one, we set forth a goal to offer a higher level of service, atmosphere and customer service not seen in our market. As a result we have been recognized as a leading salon in our state. We pride ourselves on offering a comfortable environment, where services are not rushed and you can relax. We sell ourselves as “appointment only” but do, of course, accept walk-ins on our terms.
What sets you apart from other salons in your area?
We are by-appointment, but will accept walk-ins, and we offer the highest quality products, service and atmosphere. We do lower volume at a slightly higher price. That allows us to slow down and not worry about taking every walk-in. We strive for quality and comfort, not speed and volume.
