We purchased a small salon in Silicon Valley right before the pandemic of 2020. During the shutdown we rebranded, added nine chairs, and hired our first commission stylist. We had an uphill battle dealing with covid, but we made it through.
Three years in we employ 7 people, rent chairs to 18 amazing stylists, and provide a 401k and health benefits. We're only getting started.
Our team is obsessed with education. We routinely open our salon to outside educators, and hold classes most Mondays with our staff.
Twice yearly we host content days to push ourselves in creating new looks and to flex our creativity.
