We know we stand out.

Here are a few words from our owner Patricia about what makes us unique.

 

How long have you owned the salon and how did you come up with the name and vibe of your salon?

I named our location Venue upon purchasing the space in 2017. I chose the name Venue for many reasons. A venue is where excitement and energy are expected, people can’t resist the invitation, and events of purpose, intrigue, and value occur. Ultimately, a venue of value builds trust, reputation, and purpose. These ideals bring me joy each day, they drive my decisions, and how I attract and retain my Aveda Artists and guests. I knew the space was special, it held lakefront views, high vaulted ceilings and tons for natural sunlight! I fell in love with the unique modern design of the building and the amount of space required to separate the hair studio from the more tranquil spa side of the space. It needed lots of love. I began the labor intensive work of  repair, redesign and rebranding. Hiring the right people was key in allowing the dream to come true. 

Who is your primary customer?

Our customers are as diverse as our stylists. We offer a level based pricing structure that allows our guests the ability to be matched with a professional, highly skilled artist in their budget preference. We have a Meet Your Artist survey that the guest and the provider participate in to become matched with the best stylist for them. This is based on not only the service they are scheduling, but other factors like common interests, love languages, and ways of communication. 

Our dedication to excellence is reflected in our Aveda Concept, Co-Brand Salon status. Co-Brand is Aveda corporate’s additional and selective recognition to salons that are most aligned with their mission, vision, community engagement, and partnerships. We share the culture of Aveda through eco-friendly products, cutting-edge techniques, volunteer activities, and sustainability standards. Our Aveda Artists work with only Aveda products, some of the industry’s purest and most refined professional products.

 

What are your core values and mission statement?  Please describe the culture of the salon.

We provide results-driven skincare and haircare. Venue Salon engages only stylists and estheticians who share my burning desire to be set apart. They do this by pursuing advanced education while consistently delivering new and exciting options to our guests. It is all about our guests, all about how they want to feel and what they want. We are a team, we choose to be here, we choose each other, and we enjoy the benefits of doing luxury together. You can’t be luxury alone. We are better together in learning, mentorship, support and creative thinking.

What is your onboarding and training process?

The hiring process is something we take very seriously, as should the candidate. My hope is that during the hiring process we will be as clear and open as possible. We want the applicant to understand what we are all about and who we are. We invite interested candidates to shadow days and our daily morning huddle and classes we may be providing during that time. We want them to see and feel what a “day in the life” would be like for them as a team member at Venue. This process allows both parties to anticipate challenges and expectations for their employment. To be clear is to be kind, we encourage their questions and appreciate their insights as to if they see themselves as the right fit.

What is your benefit package, if you have one, or my options if you don’t?

 Our full time employees are offered paid vacation, continued education, flexible schedule, and unlimited time off. We extend benefits including supplemental insurance and pre-paid legal coverage. We offer a mobile booking platform, Meet your Artist enrollment, and social media support and advanced education. We supply 100% of your professional color and back bar supplies.

In the near future our hope is to bring in more benefits. We are a family owned small business and we are always exploring affordable options for our team. 

 

How often do you offer education and what is the expectation for the team?

 Our team members are on a learning path catered and curated just for them with in person and online education. We are so lucky to have several Aveda educators on our team to be a mentor and a guide from day one. A core belief is that education never ends. Monthly classes are offered and when hiring from a school, we take additional steps to set up our new artists for success.

 

 

 

We are AVEDA. Why do we wear black?

Black Is Always In Style

When it comes to wearing a uniform color that always works, black is the way to go. Black is always in style, it goes with most other colors and accessories, and it is flattering to most body shapes, skin types, and hair colors. Black is also a more professional color, which is helpful for providing a professional atmosphere for clients. Black is the superior color for looking your best on the job.

 Black Helps Stylists See Color

The bright lights and varied décor in a hair salon can make it hard for a stylist to see the “true color” of the client’s hair. Ever wondered why hair stylists stand behind you after your hair is finished? It’s so that they can see how the finished result looks in front of a neutral background. If the cosmetologist was wearing something that was colorful, it could distort how the real color of the client’s hair looks. Black is a convenient and consistent way of accurately evaluating how hair looks!

Black Makes Hair Easy To See

Hair can be finicky to cut and style because there are thousands of hairs that can have a mind of their own. The black uniform is a great backdrop to help solitary hairs pop out for the stylist to easily see, and this works with most hair colors. Black hair does blend in with the uniform in most cases, but the hair pops out against almost any other background. This means the stylist can use their uniform as much or little as they like to give the contrast they need to see how the hairstyle is coming along.

Black Stays Stain-Free

Hair Stylists, especially ones that specialize in hair color, spend a lot of time around products that have the potential of staining clothing. A black uniform is much harder to visibly stain, meaning that even if a color explosion happens on the job, a stylist can look professional throughout the day. Could you imagine trying to keep a white uniform clean as a professional hair colorist? It would be an absolute nightmare!

Black Has The Most Options

When it comes to shopping for black clothing, there’s no shortage of shapes, sizes, and styles. Most uniforms require that a cosmetologist simply wear black with the salon apron over top, which means that stylists have plenty of room to express themselves and their individual style. Many clothing options are abundantly available in black, so it makes life a little easier for professional hair stylists!

What is your benefit package, if you have one, or my options if you don’t?

 Our full time employees are offered paid vacation, continued education, flexible schedule, and unlimited time off. We extend benefits including supplemental insurance and pre-paid legal coverage. We offer a mobile booking platform, Meet your Artist enrollment, and social media support and advanced education. We supply 100% of your professional color and back bar supplies.

In the near future our hope is to bring in more benefits. We are a family owned small business and we are always exploring affordable options for our team.
