A Chat with Jessica Oram Salon
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
This salon is in a private suite where you can relax and enjoy your service and your personal time without the hustle and bustle of a loud salon.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I started my salon to not only do what I love, but with a flexible schedule I am able to volunteer my time to women’s shelters to do free hair services. I also started The Shear Love Fund and donate 10% of all my profits to go toward writing grants to local Nashville shelters.
What do you love most about your job?
I love creating relationships with my clients and making them feel wonderful about themselves through new hairstyles and being able to continue my education through constant training and classes
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
I have a client whose hair I have been doing since it grew back after chemo treatments, and she told me years later that she was so scared to come back into the salon. [She said] I made her feel so welcomed and comfortable and I was so patient with her that she will continue to come to me as long as I’m doing hair.
