Anna Peters states multiple reasons for going cashless in your salon.

Anna Peters states multiple reasons for going cashless in your salon. 

Anna Peters, Sam Villa ArTeam Member and owner of  re:TREAT Color + Hair Design and Studio  is constantly looking for ways to evolve her salon.  From altering her business model to restructuring her staff, to implementing innovative systems and practices, she works hard to make sure her salon stands out and provides the best experience possible. That is why when she was recently coached to implement a cashless system, she installed SQUARE

Here’s why Peters believes going cashless is beneficial:


Guests can say goodbye to fumbling for cash or waiting for change. With a cashless system, they easily pay for services using a card that is saved on file. It's quick, hassle-free, and saves precious time.⁠

Enhanced Security 

Safety is a top priority…by going cashless with SQUARE, guests’ credit card information is stored securely which reduces the risk of theft or lost cards while keeping personal and financial information secure.

Streamlined Experience

A seamless salon experience is provided from start to finish. Without cash transactions, wait times are reduced and the payment process is not at the forefront of the experience, pampering is.


It’s good for the environment and another way to contribute to a greener future. By reducing the use of paper currency and receipts, it minimizes deforestation and the carbon footprint associated with cash production and transportation.⁠

“We want our guests to sit back, relax, and enjoy a visit with us without having to worry about money,” says Peters.  “We also don’t want our staff having to waste time on having to cash people in and out, versus creating a wonderful experience.”
