Planet Hair Honored by SALON TODAY MAGAZINE

2017-salon-today-200We are overjoyed that for the tenth year, Planet Hair has been honored by SALON TODAY Magazine as one of the fastest growing salons in the United States!

This year marks the 20th year this leading salon industry publication has honored salons for their best business practices and growth. The January/February 2017 edition profiled the winning salons, which were chosen from applications submitted by SALON TODAY readers, representing the 20,000 top-producing salons and spas in the country.

“It means so much to us that we’re still being honored for business growth in our 25th year in business,” says co-owner Linda Ernst. “Thanks to our incredible staff and loyal clients for helping us achieve this amazing honor. We couldn’t have done it without you!”

Congrats Suzie!

suzieclassWe are proud to announce that Suzie has been accepted into the Aveda Color Educator program! For the next year, Suzie will attend extra Aveda color classes, help assist other educators in the area and teach classes for our team to become a certified Aveda Salon Color Educator.

“I’ve always wanted to teach,” says Suzie. “My mother was a teacher and I went to college for an Art Education degree, so this is perfect! I’m so excited to mentor new stylists to share the same joy I take in doing color services.”

No need to worry that Suzie’s new adventure will take her away from her work with our guests. While she does plan to teach color classes in the area, Suzie believes this experience will help her grow as a stylist to do even better work.

“My first passion is hair and taking care of our guests,” explained Suzie. “I feel lucky to be able to explore my passion for teaching now too.” We think we’re the lucky ones!

Representing Planet Hair at New York Fashion Week

During the week of February 9, around 125,000 people will attend fashion shows during the New York Fashion Week Fall 2017 and over 2 million will watch the shows online to see the trends the international designers have prepared for fall. It’s an exciting event in the fashion business and a crazy, fun time to be in New York City.

This year we’ll know at least a few people who will be there in person! Mel, Jessie and Emma will be joining the Aveda Fashion Week team, working behind the scenes to create the hair and makeup looks walking down the runway! These three were given opportunity of a lifetime by writing an essay, telling us why they wanted to attend Fashion Week.

Emma told us, “I’ve always wanted to be a part of Fashion Week, since I watched runway shows a little kid, but I never thought I’d have the opportunity to take part in it. This is a dream come true!”

In preparation for their big adventure, Emma, Mel and Jessie recently attended training in New York for runway styling. Mel and Jessie studied with Jon Reyman, the lead stylist of the Aveda Fashion Week team. With 20 years of experience creating runway hair styles for Fashion Week, Jon showed them hair do’s they’ll need to know for the shows. Emma studied with Janell Geason, lead makeup artist of the Aveda Fashion Week team, to practice this season’s makeup techniques and how to use products differently for the runway.

They will return to New York in February for three days of hard work. Joining 75 other international Aveda artists, they’ll work in small teams at the actual Fashion Week runway shows. Creating looks for around three shows each day, the artists will be shown a quick demo of the looks that Jon and Janell have decided on with each show’s designer, and will be expected to quickly replicate that exact look on many models.

We can’t wait to hear their stories when they get back. Stay tuned for more about their fabulous fashion adventure!

We’re #1!

bestWe were blown away at the Wichita Business Journal’s luncheon recognizing the recipients of the 2016 Best Places to Work! We knew, going in, that we were one of the 10 small sized businesses being honored. What we didn’t know is that our score qualified us to be the overall winner of the small company category!

This award is especially meaningful to us, because this is really an award from our extraordinary team. They all answered a survey about our employment practices, giving us the highest score in the category. We are humbled, grateful and thrilled!
