In an effort to recognize salons that are leaders in business, Matrix Corporation recently honored its salon clients who were 2012 SALON TODAY 200 honorees with special surprise visits to their salons.
For each honoree, the company’s personal sales consultant called ahead and made an appointment to ensure that owners and managers would be present, then they arrived with giant congratulatory cards, balloons and flowers in hand.
“Matrix congratulates all the honored salons for imagining all they can be, as these salons are role models for creating positive change in their salons and communities,” says Colin Walsh, Matrix vice president and general manager.
Since SALON TODAY was in on the secret, we asked Matrix to capture some of the surprise moments on film.
