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.” 

 

For a salon to be named to the SALON TODAY 200, it had to meet the following criteria: 1) The salon or spa opened on or before January 1, 2015. 2) The salon is a provider of professional salon services including one, or more, of the following: hair care, nail care, skin care, body care or spa treatments; 3) The salon or spa generated annual service and product sales revenues of at least $250,000 per year since 2015; 4) The owner provided statistical information about his or her business and completed at least one of the Best Practice category essay sections; and 5) The applicant submitted documentation to verify financials if he or she competed in the growth category.

 

In the commemorative January/February 2018 issue, SALON TODAY profiled 200 individual salons, although these salons could be honored in more than one category. The 2018 SALON TODAY 200 honored 100 salons in Growth; 34 salons in Compensation & Benefits; 40 salons in Customer Service; 26 salons in Employee Education; 30 salons in Inventory Management; 30 salons in Philanthropy; 16 salons in Profit Center; 37 salons Retail & Merchandising; 31 salons in Retention & Referral Programs; 45 salons in Salon Culture; and 34 salons in Technology.

Hair Perfume?! No Hair PUREfumes!

We all know that Aveda loves to use certain terms for their products.

It's AROMA not scent/smell.

But did you know they have a new one? It's Purefume over Perfume.

What's the difference you ask? It's very simple, their new launch of the Hair Purefumes are truly pure plant and flower aromas to spray in your hair for lasting aroma. 

Aveda’s first hair pure-fume™ line created specifically to deliver the distinctive Aveda pure flower and plant aroma with the high performance hair care benefits of softness and shine.

THINGS TO LOVE: 
• 99.9% naturally-derived
• Quick-drying formula that does not affect finished hair styles
• Can be used anytime throughout the day to refresh the hair’s aroma

We now carry 3 amazing aromas for your hair that can help you relax and feel good!

• 85% of guests agree that Aveda aromas help to alter their mood
• 91% of guests agree that Aveda aromas make them feel good

 

Who doesn't love feeling good and smelling amazing!? 

Have fried hair? This product could help

Does your hair literally crinkle and sound like it will snap when you run your brush or hands through it? Join the club! There are so many people who have the same issue-- so many in fact that Aveda decided it was time to help us fix the problem with a new product!

If you are a heat-styler, a less-frequent hair washer or you tangle easily, the new Shampure Dry Conditioner will be your new go-to product for your hair! We have found that using it helps detangle dry hair and give it some moisture without weighing the hair down. It is a heat protectant so it also is perfect for use prior using a flat iron, curling iron or wand on your hair-- even second or third day!

It is perfectly paired with the Shampure Dry Shampoo for an easy way to stretch your blowout an extra few days!

Shampure Dry Conditioner uses organic jojoba oil and sunflower oils to condition and soften your hair for ultimate shine and health. It has a 5-star rating on Aveda.com and is a staff favorite!
