Akron Entrepreneur stylist gives haircuts & advice
Updated: Oct 25, 2018
Owner/ Manager Katie Wyatt gives patrons personalized experience while also catering to her stylists
Recently, I had the absolute pleasure of getting #pampered while getting my hair done at a local hair spot called Lavender Lane #Beauty Studios in Akron, #Ohio. When you enter, the #salon is very vintage chic with a touch of shabby mixed with a brushed lavender color throughout.
On this specific trip, I was adding #highlights, low lights and getting a trim by Katie #Wyatt, who is a local #Akron entrepreneur.
Katie #rents booths for stylists at her salon and they cater to patrons desiring #lashes, #nails, #facials, microblading and many more beauty services. I got to sit in her exclusive booth and really felt listen to while we went over several different pictures to make sure we were both on the same page. This I felt really added to that #personal #experience that is so often missed buy big chain salons.
I was introduced to Katie through my PR rep Kat Pestian at #AMP Strategy because Katie is very much about mentoring new and experienced #beauticians and her main goal is to grow and recruit amazing stylists and beauty experts.
The #Business Side of Hairdressing
In speaking with #Katie she spoke about her upcoming goals of franchising Lavender #Lane Beauty Studios and for also #mentoring new stylists through marketing support, small business accounting support, and by hosting different networking events at the studio.
"my goal is to create a different environment and help other stylists become business savvy. We would all be better if we could communicate."
Katie's goals of becoming a mentor for other stylists wanting to grow and franchise was inspiring. When asked if she had any #advice for new stylists just out of school Katie said, "The most important thing is to gain experience...seek out someone who will take you under their wing but also self study is very important."
Her advice overall rings true to life, "anytime you feel stagnant in your career, move on."
