“After hearing time and time again that I should be depressed about being single and reading articles that fell just short of telling me that I have no hope for happiness because I have not (yet) found a husband, I just couldn’t take it anymore,” said Beaty. “The Singles' Salon was developed as an expression of my happiness for my life. It's human to seek love and companionship, and in most cases that means marriage, but there is no reason why single women shouldn't have great lives in the mean time."
To fill the void, depicted by the media, and make the statement, “You’re single, and you’re still ok,” The Singles’ Salon was launched on July 4, 2010, as the Ultimate Independence Day gift.
Encouraging "all the single ladies" to put their "well-manicured hands up," the site serves as a place where single women (and those who are single at heart) can celebrate everything that is fun and fabulous about living free.
The Singles' Salon offers a daily SINGLE shot of news and topics that are of interest to women, with a special slant towards the single lifestyle. Tackling everything from what to do when your date cancels on you at the last minute (get dressed and go anyway!) to how to save money (and not waste groceries!) when cooking for one, to how to achieve the latest runway looks, The Singles' Salon enlightens, entertains, inspires, and empowers singlelistas everywhere!
Regular features include:
- Single Celebs We Love- profiles of fabulously single celebrities
- Every Single Penny- personal finance advice for the household of one
-Singlelistas Night Out - recommendations and reviews for fun girls' night out activities
- Singlelista Approved - consumer product and experiences reviews
- Singlelista Style- fashion and beauty advice for the fab and beautiful
- and others
The Singles' Salon also offers special features including the popular "Movin' On Mondays" which gives advice to help check those who are newly single out of heartbreak hotel, and "Notes from Down the Aisle," a monthly feature where married women admonish singlelistas on the importance of making the most of their freedom while they still have it.
The idea for the site was conceived more than a year ago, after Beaty found herself becoming depressed about her single status after reading many news articles that essentially told her that she should be.
"It seemed that every article I read was either telling me that statistically it would be virtually impossible for me to get married, or advising me on the ways that I could change myself to attract a suitor. After talking to my friends I realized that I wasn't the only person feeling this way, but what really alarmed me was seeing the extent to which many women were internalizing these messages."
