Part 3 - Readers’ Feedback 

One of the things that makes SALON TODAY so unique is its truly devoted audience of readers. We asked a few of them to share their thoughts on the magazine.

 

 

“Congrats go out to SALON TODAY, the first magazine that addressed the salon business—as a real business! ST appeals to salon owners and managers in a very special way.”

—Beth and Carmine Minardi

Minardi Salon, NYC

 

“I have met so many friends through SALON TODAY! I realize that it may sound weird to meet friends through a trade publication, but four of my closest salon owner girlfriends—Kris Carpenter, Jan Seybold, Cindy Monten and Rowena Yeager—have all been featured at some point in their careers in the magazine. When I read their stories and saw their photos, I thought that I would love to know these woman. At conferences, I ran across all of them. I’d say, “Didn’t I read an article about you in SALON TODAY?” And from there great friendships have developed because of your wonderfully insightful magazine.”

—Mary Swank

Simply Swank, Hudson, OH

 

“This year FACES DaySpa is also celebrating a 25th anniversary, and much of our success is due to the education we receive through your articles and from speakers at the SALON TODAY 360° event—not to mention the status we received from being named to the SALON TODAY 200 five times!”

—Patricia Owen

Faces Day Spa, Hilton Head, SC

 

I would probably not be where I am today without SALON TODAY. When I married my wife in 1988, she was running a three-station, 470-foot salon. I had a business degree and wanted to do something with it, but real-life business is different from what you learn in school. I picked up my wife’s SALON TODAY and began reading every issue cover-to-cover. My wife and I now own a 5,500-foot salon and are opening a second one this summer. What was the incubator of all of that? SALON TODAY.

—Mark J. Brado
