Salon Today

March 2017

In a very special cover feature, we meet the Atlanta Salon Owner Group—more than 20 successful salon owners who have set aside competition in the spirit of learning from one another and strengthening their little corner of the beauty world. Find out what happens at one of their quarterly meetings and hear from the members on how being part of this group has helped them grow.

This issue also pays tribute to the igniting influence of motivation by following three beauty cases—David Wagner and the Daymaker Movement, the Arrojo Ambassadors Program and the 18|8 fine men’s salon franchise.

In a special Mindset, industry leaders Coral Pleas, Arik Scrivo, Larisa Love, Frank Rizzeri, Frank Gambuzza and Howard Hafetz ponder the future of salon ownership in light of the closing of the legendary Ted Gibson Salon. Also in this issue, Scott Buchanan shares his favorite culture-building influences, The Experience Economy’s Jim Gilmore shows owners how to create extraordinary experiences and Serious Business inspires owners with a roster of motivating speakers.
