We’ve spent the last six months hustling to get the salon stocked, staffed, and looking gorgeous so we could start focusing on making our clients look gorgeous. It has been exhilarating, exhausting and FUN. In many ways it has been a long road to get here but it also went by incredibly fast. We are loving the Mid-Market neighborhood and can safely say we’ve made our stamp on it!
The flip side of all the hard work has been all the love. We’ve been showered with so many good wishes and support from our families, friends and clients. The amount of flowers Steel + Lacquer has seen has been unreal. We could not be happier with the momentum the salon has gained since we opened our doors on May 23rd.
As for us, we're thrilled to say our family has now grown to a total of ten. We have seven incredibly talented hairdressers, two front desk customer service gurus and one barber in-training. We have been happily busy washing, cutting, coloring and blowing out the hair of a ton of existing clients, a slew of brand new clients and many referrals. THANK YOU for all the awesome referrals (we love your friends!) and for the dazzling Yelp reviews. Have we told you lately how much we love you?
The past six months we’ve had some inspirational, cutting-edge training sessions with Label.m, Oribe and L'oreal with more exciting training to come in 2016. This will benefit our Steel + Lacquer family and YOU, of course! We have plans to bring together our SF hairdresser friends for educational events as well. Stay tuned for more on that!
On November 7th, we had our Grand Opening party! It was a massive success and we were so grateful to finally be able to celebrate with everyone that was involved in making this dream a reality. We had well over 200+ gorgeously dressed (and coiffed!) people in our salon. We christened the floor with champagne and dance moves thanks to DJ IVY. She played all our favorite jams and set the tone for a super sexy, super fun night. Our dear friends Mark, Crystal and Tiffany killed it with every last detail to make our night so special. The highlight of the night was the Step + Repeat photo area! Our glam guests were LIVING to have their photographs taken. Please enjoy the pics that captured the all beauty that was overflowing from the salon that night.
We’re entering the busiest time of the year with the holidays and we’re so thrilled to share our first holiday season in our new home with all of you. We are proud to be salon owners and to have a salon in one of the most special cities in the world. And with the best clients in the world!
We’re humbled by all the cards, flowers, champagne, love, support and all the exposure you’ve given us! Here’s to many more great months to come! We love you and couldn't have done it without you!
