What products or services does your company provide?

We are a full-service salon with talented stylists who stay current in the latest techniques. We have five full-time stylists, a manicurist and one barber. All the stylists offer services to men, women and kids. The salon also offers a full line of products for sale.

Who are your customers?

Our customers are men, women and kids. We accept walk-ins as well as appointments. The clients range in age from 1 to 80.

What is your business day like?

The salon is open Tuesday-Saturday and is fast-paced. I have clients that I work with daily as well as the day-to-day operations with ordering and billing.

What is the best business advice you have received?

A wise man once told me, “Whatever you do, do something that makes you happy.”

What is the most important thing you’ve learned on the job?

Running a business isn’t easy, but if done correctly, it can be very rewarding.

What does the future hold?

The first year is coming to a close and has been a learning experience. The future looks bright. I have a great group of stylists that love their jobs and are motivated to learn new things. The sky is the limit.

What have you read lately that has influenced your business life?

I like to read articles about the fashion industry and stay up on techniques. I also have read some children’s books with the kids to stay grounded.
