A Chat with Annie's Chair at Mark Evans Salon
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? I offer all services that involve hair—how fun! I do men's, women's, and children's haircuts along with all types of color, hair smoothing and straightening services, and facial hair removal. There are so many paths to take to reach one's desirable look.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? In this industry, it's all about breaking the "rules" in the best way. In working for myself, I feel that there are no limitations to any services that I offer. Without the pressures of service add-on dollars and retail, it is much easier to establish trust and build a relationship with guests.
What do you love most about your job? As a life-long learner, I love that the beauty industry is constantly evolving and changing. Helping guests find out what works best for them and having them leave happy is so fulfilling. It is truly a treat to be able to take care of someone and make their day.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? _To me, any customer who leaves with a smile or seems happy is enough for me. The one I hear most often is usually 15 minutes into a guest's appointment or after a shampoo and head massage—just simply how relaxed they are to finally sit down and do something for themselves. _
