We are EXCITED to announce that Steller Hair Company will officially be open for business this fall!
LOCATION: 2901 University Ave W. Saint Paul MN 55114
RENOVATION START DATE: September 1st
DOORS OPEN: This FALL!
We have created this blog to keep YOU updated on the remodeling of our space, new and exciting things we are doing, as well as how you can be involved (how about coming to get your hair done by us, for starters!).
This salon has been in the works for quite some time now, and we are learning as we go how to start a business the right way. We are so incredibly passionate about what we are doing, that its been so hard not to talk about it! BUT NOW WE CAN!! In this first post I am going to just give you a quick oveview of our dreams for this salon as well as the exciting new things we are introducing to the hair industry.
If you don’t know us, Mike and I met at the Aveda Institute when we were both students. From there, we dated, got married and have 2 beautiful (great dane) children. We are both extremely passionate about the art of hair as well as the service that it provides for our clientel. Caring for people is our number one priority. We have both worked is salons, as well as taught at the Aveda Institute. The experiences that we have gone through have defined the type of people, and hairstylists we are now. We love eachother and love hair, so this is going to be a good time 🙂
OUR MISSION: is to use our passion and talent to care for people. From modern hair with a classic foundation, to creating a welcoming environment that encourages a tight knit community.
It is most important to us that we are accessible to anyone and everyone. For that reason alone, we are commited to having reasonable prices, because hair grows back. We would rather be extremely busy at a lower price point, and be able to bless people with amazing hair without breaking the bank, instead of being less busy at overly-expensive prices.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
-We want to offer a space that is non-pretentious and encourages community.
-We are a business that puts our employees and clients first.
-We will be offering different opportunities for people to get their hair done, if they can’t afford our prices (everyone should be able to have amazing hair)
-We focus on the whole person, not just the hair.
-This is our mission and our calling, so you know we are putting everything we have into making this business bless whoever walks through our doors.
Another exciting aspect to our salon that will set us apart is music. Each month we will be featuring a different local music artist. We will hang their artwork, play their music, share their story. At the end of each month we will have a small acoustic concert featuring that artist. We have an immense love for music and want to encourage new artists as well as bring the excitement of local music to our guests, who might otherwise not hear it!
OUR PRODUCT LINE!
We will be carrying Number 4 as our product line. Number 4 is 100% vegan, gluten free, sodium chloride free, sulfate free, and paraben free. We wanted a product line that would reflect our mission (caring for people) down to what our guests put on their skin. Not only is this product line healthy for our consumers, it is also exclusive. Only one other salon in Minnesota carries number 4, so our guests will have to come back to us to buy more, versus going to another salon. This product line is extremely successful on the west coast and is just now hitting the Midwest, which makes it the new trend. Please check it out at http://www.number4hair.com/
HOW YOU CAN BE APART OF STELLER HAIR COMPANY!
Come get your hair done!!! That is definitely to biggest way to support us! But since we aren’t up and running yet, we could use your help in another way.
We have launched an IndieGoGo to raise money for our equipment and start up. The cool thing about raising money this way is that you will be getting something in return (free haircuts, colors, styles, tshirts, concert tickets, cds etc). So it is more of an investment in our business then just giving us your money 🙂 www.indiegogo.com/stellerhairco
This is just a BRIEF overview of what we are doing, so keep checking back for more details! Thank you already for even being interested in us!
