It’s been four amazing years since my husband Bret & I decided to take the journey into salon ownership. As a passionate stylist such as myself, it all seems like a dream having founded and created my own Boise hair salon. Looking back it was a scary but rewarding venture.
Creating a team atmosphere instead of being a sole stylist, I knew venturing into salon ownership would have its challenges since the majority of salons are leased out hence promoting independent contractors in business for themselves. Looking back I sometimes can’t help but shake my head and ask myself how I was able to accomplish it all after leaving the Eagle hair salon.
Last year, I took a leap of faith and partnered with a salon in Thailand for girls that have been exploited in the sex trade industry. I also work with a close friend that owns the InsideOut Salon and Spa in Eagle, Idaho. During this period of growth, I felt the need to help more with the community as well as girls that have been trafficked or exploited throughout the sex trade industry while creating more awareness in the process.
With a commitment to Rusk (whom I am an educator for) combined with a strong team behind me, I took another leap of faith and decided to expand the unDONE Salon by adding additional team members who share my vision for compassion by offering new services.
This year, the unDONE Salon will be offering nails & pedicures by Hang Palmer, who is a highly educated nail art technician who specialized in hand and foot care. She uses only the highest quality nail care brands and moisturizers that other nail salons don’t carry. Hang’s passion and top educational skills will bring a variety of new services to our clients and the unDONE team.
In addition, we will also be offering organic Vino spray tans by Kathryn Muroff who trained under the Hollywood Airbrush Tanning Academy’s founder Simone Emmons who is a renowned airbrush tanning expert dedicated to assisting aspiring spray tan professionals to make their mark in this growing industry.
I look forward to 2015, and sharing unDONE’s passion with the Treasure Valley community while giving back more than we ever could before. Some of the new adventures we look forward to will be volunteering our time at women’s shelters, and orphanages by cutting hair for those who are less fortunate than we are, while boosting their self-esteem. We will also be working closely with our Destiny Rescue Salon partners in Thailand, and Cambodia.
The unDONE team is highly devoted to pursuing the 2015 continued educational programs of our leading lines, Davines, Kevin Murphy, and Rusk, and look forward to the cutting edge courses we have scheduled.
Happy New Year!
