Part 3: Our Silver Anniversary- Readers’ Feedback

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

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.
