Our business model comprises salon services and product sales. We offer a full menu of service options for both men and women. Our pricing is upmarket but not outrageous, as we try to ensure that we are just on the cusp of luxurious without being priced at that level. We have a diverse group of guests, but women between the ages of 13-55 are our biggest client group. In terms of product sales, we have direct distribution arrangements with select brands as well as wholesale distribution relationships with other partners.
As told by Simon Nguyen, owner:
I was initially drawn to hairstyling because of my interest in fashion and the arts, but I soon developed an appreciation for the business side. Working at an established salon, I always found myself thinking about how I could enhance the customer’s experience. I enjoyed imagining how I would do things better or more efficiently if I had the freedom of running my own salon.
One of the quotes I try to live by is, “Don’t talk about it. Be about it.”
I rented a booth for three years in a shared salon space, testing the waters and learning more about running my own business. When I finally found the perfect location – a 1400 square foot space in a densely populated Clear Lake neighborhood – I pulled together my life savings and brought in a fantastic crew to join me. In 2010, Hair Revolution was born.
We started with a team of four dynamic stylists and my brother to handle operations, and we have since grown to a band of eight. We strive to get better each day and provide a professional and comfortable experience that our customers can truly rave about. By relentlessly focusing on providing an exceptional customer experience, our business has grown every year. In 2014, we had a banner year with more than $1 million in revenue.
