BUFFALO GROVE, IL (January 2018) – Thirty Hair in Columbia, MD owned and managed by Dustin Mariman and Sarah McGee recently was named to the SALON TODAY 200 by SALON TODAY, the leading business media for salon and spa owners.
The magazine’s 21st annual SALON TODAY 200 issue profiled the selected salons in its January/February 2018 edition. The 200 salons were honored for their best business practices from applications submitted by SALON TODAY readers, who represent the 20,000 top-producing salons and spas in the country.
The magazine honored applicants in 11 different best practice categories, including, Compensation & Benefits, Customer Service, Employee Education, Inventory Management, Philanthropy, Profit Center, Retail & Merchandising, Retention & Referral Programs, Salon Culture, Technology and Growth. Thirty Hair was honored in the Staff Compensation and Benefits.
Thirty Hair is fortunate to be a leading employer in their industry for Howard County Salons. On average, our staff members are paid 57% higher than local salons and are paid 61% higher than the national average. Benefits include up to 3 weeks paid vacation, maternity leave, short-term disability, long-term disability and life insurance completely funded by employer. Employees are also provided 100% tuition reimbursement for educational events. As a team, they are also eligible for up to 15% of their salary in bonuses throughout the year.
“Our editors recognize that strong business leadership requires the mastery of a number of different best business practices,” said Stacey Soble, editor-in-chief of SALON TODAY. “The salons named to the SALON TODAY 200 for 2018 not only proved they excel in one or more of these areas, they also have created rewarding environments for their staff members and standout experiences for their clients. Their willingness to share their success offers our readers important business benchmarks and inspirational business-building ideas.”

Here at Thirty Hair in Columbia, MD, we love to celebrate halloween in a fun way... themed!
Check out a few pictures from our fun day....
Ever wonder how we stay on top of everything that goes on at Thirty Hair?
There's a simple yet complex answer to that. Communication.
Every Saturday morning, we meet as a team for 20 minutes to discuss the week, the upcoming busy day and what's new and happening.
The first Tuesday of every month we get together for 2 hours, that's right 2 HOURS to work on what's happening, the numbers, new products, new ideas for events and services, you name it.
So today we had a fun meeting instead of just numbers and organization and we used a cool tool to play a game to learn and grow. If you are looking for a fun tool to organize a game, check out www.jeopardy.rocks for your next round of customized jeopardy!
We utilized it a little differently considering our circumstances and used it to set up our form and organize all the questions but now we can use it for any future hires to play and learn!
There was a lot of laughter from our teams, some fighting over the right answer and a few light bulbs went off in the learning department!
One of the best topics of learning was Aveda Facts. Did you know that Clove shampoo was one of the first products made by the founder, Horst Rechelbacher? He made it in his kitchen at first until he founded Aveda!
We also had fun debating the combined amount of children we have from our team, which Aveda shampoos are sulfate free and how many hair masks there are in the Aveda line.
All in all, congrats to our winners, Isabelle and Kara for knowing the most overall about Thirty Hair this month at staff meeting! And a special thanks to Isabelle, who made the whole team an amazing lunch to enjoy while we learned and played!
