A Chat with Shockoe Salon
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Nirvana Hair Salon's evironment is key from the drink you are offered when you walk through the door to the relaxing music flowing through the air. Our european style shampoo beds paired with my amazing massaging techniques will leave you feeling like you have escaped into bliss.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I am now and have always been overwhelmingly interested in and intrigued by all things hair. It's in my bones and blood, my inspiration came from my grandmother and greataunt who both opened and ran their own shops for years.
What do you love most about your job?
Helping people find the beauty that has always been within them is hands down the best part of my job. Those "over excited" clients who are just so shocked by thier own beauty that their face lights up joy and their body language suddenly spurs out confidence, maybe even a hair flip.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
The best client reaction I've gotten was after a wasit length hair color correction. She was so excited to finally be the blonde she wanted she have me hug and told me how much she loved it. It was until we said our goodbyes and the salon door was closed that she let out a loud WOOOHOOO!
