A Chat with The Chic Suite
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
The Chic Suite is a cozy, yet chic, salon where you can relax in the hands of an experienced stylist and former salon educator. Clients are welcome to make themselves completely at home while sipping on some wine, choosing what music to play, and enjoying a one-on-one experience with the stylist.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I wanted to create a salon where both the client and I have freedom. As the salon owner, I am able to be flexible to accommodate my client's needs and to create an environment where everyone feels welcome.
What do you love most about your job?
I absolutely love the technical part of what I do. I love being creative and making my clients feel and look their best. However, what I love most are the relationships. It's all about relationships. There's a reason why they say a hairstylist is a girl's (or guy's) best friend. :-)
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
My client, Melissa, wrote this: "Ashley has given me my best color yet! I've gotten so many compliments. One of which was " it's the perfect shade of brown with a kiss of honey!" LOVED hearing that. I informed Ashley of what I wished for and she performed a miracle!!! Love love love her!"
