A Chat with Shvonne Austin @ Salvage Salon
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Our salon is comfy, welcoming and fun to be in. My priority is making my clients feel like their best selves, like the person in the mirror matches the person they feel like on the inside (except with an amazing blowout, because duh.)
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? _I love talking to people all day about food…and, well basically about food. If I can hang out with people and laugh and make them feel awesome with an amazing scalp massage and great haircut, that’s a perfect day for me. _
What do you love most about your job? _I love educating my clients on how to do their hair at home. I love the Aha! moment when their eyes light up and see that Victorias Secret runway hair is actually something they can achieve, they just needed a little empowerment and the right tools. _
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer? It sounds a little cheesy, but the best feedback is when clients refer a friend (or mom or sister or husband). Verbal feedback is always nice, but nothing compares to someone seeing your hair and wanting it!
