Y'all Have Spoken!
Truth be told, being home for 9 weeks gives a lady quite a bit of time to think and reflect.
I'm always looking for ways to make your visit to Style Haus Salem even better than the last. Some of that is the continuing education I'm always working through -- new hair trends require new hair techniques, and y'all know I'm all about that!
The other piece is the what The Biz calls "The Salon Experience": what does your visit feel like from beginning to end. Pre-Covid that looked a lot like not double booking, extended consultations, an upscale location, complimentary snacks & beverages (heeey there, champagne!), and hot towel deep conditioning treatments. The experience is all about feeling amazing while you're in the process of looking amazing.
As a business owner, I don't know what I don't know...you know? And I realized a great way to improve your visit would be to have you actually tell me.
Have you received the anonymous Guest Satisfaction Survey? Every guest now receives one after their visit. The feedback I've been getting is giving me great information on how I can make each visit that much better for you!
Two things I have found to be close to unanimous in my responses, as well as very surprising:
Using vegan and cruelty-free products (color and styling) is fairly-to-very important to you.
Having retail products in the studio available for purchase is very important to you.
Why? I figured vegan/cruelty-free products wasn't the biggest priority, and that most folks would rather purchase their products either off Amazon or from Ulta. I didn't realize y'all wanted to support my business as much as you do! <3
So I would like to introduce VERB!
What is VERB?
They are a woman-owned cruelty-free, vegetarian, gluten-free, paraben-free, & sulfate-free, 100% recyclable product line that firmly believes in embracing all hair textures and stands firmly in representing their real results with real women ,
They describe themselves as easy going, innovative, and energetic with the creative vibe straight out of Austin, TX -- which, I've got to say, describes Style Haus Salem and our guests to a T!
You also know I'm a sucker for brand-new SKUs on the haircare product market, and VERB has that in spades!
Revitalizing Ghost Oil (who?)
Ghost Dry Oil (what is that?)
Resetting Mist (huh?)
Non-aerosol Dry Shampoo (excuse me?)
A non-drying Sea Salt texture line that actually works (say whaaaaat???)
And I absolutely cannot wait to introduce you to their signature grapefruit oatmeal scent that will leave you sniffing your hair for hours!
On your next visit in, please ask all the questions about what I'm using on your hair -- I'll be fully stocked on the SKUs I think are the most important -- and most useful -- for your particular needs!
