Devon’s desire to control her own time was the driving force behind her move to Salon Suites. She now has more time for the things in life that really matter, like family, and she has even managed to cut out a few of those things that don’t, like mandatory meetings and social events from bosses. Devon previously worked at a large commission based “corporate” salon and loves the freedom she found at Salon Suites. She is now free to set her own hours, dress code, policies, and even the freedom to decorate her suite with a style that fits her personality. Her salon offers cut and color, along with specialty services like Halo Couture extensions, keratin treatments and Brazilian blowouts.
Devon has been in cosmetology since 2007, with a background in customer service and theatrical design prior to entering the beauty industry. Over the last few years she has been able to build a devoted book of business, but like any stylist she naturally had concerns about how they would perceive her new salon and, most importantly, how many would follow her on this move. She initially retained 90% of her book, and has been steadily adding new clients from Salon Suites’ sponsored marketing events along with walk in traffic. The move has worked out great for her existing clients, as the love the privacy the suite provides along with the convenience of the Colonnade location, ample parking, and most of all the 24/7 online booking. Her clients love the ability to book appointments anytime anywhere, and Devon has found it to an amazing asset that most importantly maximizes her time.
Salon Suites provided the perfect platform for Devon to start her own business and take control of her time. She can now focus on the things that are important; her clients and her priorities. The move also gave her the control over her finances, as she saw her income double immediately!
