New 'Boutique Salon Concept' Offers Opportunities for Beauty Entrepreneurs
Salon professionals such as Rayna Hair Artistry are listening to clients needs for more personal attention by investing in a salon suite. Discerning hair mavens are discovering the benefits of a private salon suite vs. large-scale salons.
"I never knew such a thing existed!" says Rayna Wrighton, owner/hairstylist of Rayna Hair Artistry. "I've been an independent stylist for 3½ years, renting chairs out of larger salons. When I moved from New York City to California and discovered Phenix [Salon Suites/ West Hollywood], I right away thought it was too good to be true - but it wasn't. I signed the lease 3 months before my cross-country move because the space and location were so incredible! I knew it would not be vacant for long."
Rayna Hair Artistry is spreading the word of her luxurious find, not only through word of mouth but by actions and decor. Phenix Salon Suites allows and encourages leasees to make the space their own. For the first time, Wrighton was able to bring her eclectic minimalist style to life through custom decor like coffered ceilings, her favorite wines and specialty coffees and teas (cappuccino and lattes, if you prefer), chill music, an interesting variety of magazines and coffee-table books which has made it a go-to spot for those of discerning taste. "I honestly took inspiration from the New York salons that I've worked in. I left out what I didn't like and sprinkled in my own esthetic," said Wrighton. "I didn't want a typical salon-type look. I really wanted an 'artist-studio' with a loft-like feel."
Clients who have visited this private boutique salon note the decor and vibe right alongside their salon experience in online reviews. "I was so used to being shipped through a salon like I was in a factory. Here I actually felt like a person," said Brook Prince, Legal Secretary. "I was given individualized attention in an intimate, comfortable setting and I left feeling truly listened to, pampered and best of all, beautiful!"
