Envy Hair Salon Story
Alison stressed excellence, integrity, and service as guiding principles for the foundation of the salon. She knew these things were essential for a thriving business. These principals successfully fuelled her salon for 10 years in the UK, and she believed she would be equally successful here in Canada. Alison saw a salon that was modern, creative, and trend-setting while maintaining the utmost in professionalism.
Her mission was to create something that Barrie had never seen before… and stir up a little Envy.
The “Envy Culture” was to be the defining characteristic of her salon, and would set it apart in the industry. A constant focus on education, fashion, and customer care would be essential elements in creating a salon like no other. Envy’s stylists’ creativity would only be matched by their technical ability and passion for making guests look and feel exceptional.
Alison knows that a salon is nothing without its guests. She set out to build a team of professionals that were not only creative and technical, they also had to have a genuine passion for people. Another requirement was consultation skills. She picked stylists who had the ability to carefully listen to what their guests wanted and deliver custom results. These were difficult requirements, yet well worth the effort.
After all their careful planning, Envy opened its doors in March 2007.
Since then Envy has continued to grow and evolve into Barrie’s most progressive salon. The foundation it was built upon still shines through and the accolades speak for themselves. Envy is consistently recognized as the best salon in Barrie by the Top Choice Awards and The Barrie Advance Readers’ Choice Awards.
