This blog is about who we are and our salon vision. We are a full-service hair salon, and our goal is to expand in many ways that I think will change the future of the salon environment. Marketing can be costly, so networking together in the beauty industry and the community is beneficial for us all. Our only competition as a hairdresser is ourselves, continuously perfecting what we were yesterday. With experience behind the chair since 2004, I have seen many salon work environments. The salon suite rental that many hairdressers choose now has its good and bad points. As a hairdresser trying to decide if salon owning is the future for your career, this option will let you know for sure. Looking back, I do feel that I may not have taken the leaped to open my salon if it hadn't been for this experience. Unfortunately, this is the only good that I benefited from salon suite renting. The downside is that it is costly. I had the size of a 10x10 room that cost me $384 a week. You pay a high price for the area and the amenities, but in the end, struggling to afford it was more work and stressful than I could justify. You can not have employees because you both would have to work part-time. I missed the salon vibe, which I think is essential as an artist because your inspiration and pushing yourself to be better is more effortless. To rent a business suit in the shopping center behind the salon building was $5,000 a month and a 5-year contract. With rent being this high, real estate is the best option for business space.
Opening up a new salon at the beginning of Covid and still have our doors open is a blessing. Our location has a bright future with the fast-growing Rock Hill. This city has so much going on that you will not recognize Rock Hill in less than five years. Rock Hill surrounds highly ranked school districts like Lancaster, Fort Mill, Tega Cay, Catawba, and York County. Rock Hill is the home of the Carolina Panthers. We have several fast-growing venues that offer many family and fun events—Kingsley, Riverwalk, and the Rock Hill Sports & Event Center. Many wedding venues surround Rock Hill, like; The Dairy Barn, The Chantilly, The White Home, Crystal Ballroom, Brakefield At Riverwalk, and The Magnolia Room to name a few.
Our style bar-room has so much to offer. Rent the style room for a special event or a wedding party. Our style room is design for the bridal party to be together getting ready at the same time. The style room is great for proms and birthday parties. Wine & hair go together for a girl's night out, and our salon is the perfect space. Sign up for a hairstyling class we offer once-a-month for clients and the community. Learn new hairstyling techniques, makeup application, jewelry designing, hair accessory fashion, and how to use hair products and hair tools. Being with other people does not need to be stressful. We want to ensure that your time with us is seamless, efficient, and productive for any queries and concerns. We are focused on providing you with a relaxing and safe salon experience.
