What Does Kelly Clarkson and Fresh Hair Studio Have In Common?
Our Secret Sauce Recipe
|What does “J.Lo and Ben Affleck’s engagement” …..”Kelly Clarkson winning the first American Idol”…..”Michael Jackson holding baby Prince Michael II off a Berlin balcony”….and the start of fresh hair studio all have in common?
|That’s right, they all happened in 2002! While Eminem had his hit “Lose Yourself”, two long time friends – Laurie Haney and Deb Gavin were finding themselves.
Even though I could take this opportunity to chat about women entrepreneurs, the studio accolades, or our unique education philosophies… I’d really love to share some insight about the studios “secret sauce”. That special recipe that has brought us 15 years forward.
Through the years we have shared a lot of laughter, and some tears. Our journey becoming industry brand artists, marriage, children, even our career paths kept us together when we moved salons. Neither of us ever had a goal to open a salon on our own, but it’s funny how life goes.
Years later we found ourselves at a point where we both were very busy hairdressers however more and more we grew tired of the culture in salons. It was time to move on. After exploring a few other salon atmospheres we realized the only way our priorities in a business would be found is if we created it.
Thus started fresh hair studio. A strong belief that a team should feel protected and looked after. We wanted to be of service to the community. Creating a culture where there is mutual mentoring from all and as we watch the team grow professionally and personally as we get tremendous joy from that. Developing trust that we.always have the best intentions was priority. The work, technical skills and caliber of artist follows when the secret sauce is created.
My typical morning greeting to the team is a form of “Welcome to fresh where everyday is a great day”, of course there are hard times and sad things. That’s life, right? The difference is that it’s worth the hard work and effort. Constantly evolving and staying forward thinking in all aspects. Ultimately the biggest motivation is our dedicated, talented team and our amazing clients. That’s why we say – “Thank you for choosing fresh hair studio”.
We all look forward to many more years of together! Without all of you, we would not be us! – Deb and Laurie
