Why do you love working for Salon Services? Everything we do is about protecting the professional beauty industry and I am proud to say that I work for a company that partners with small businesses to help them grow. Every tool, every resource, and every product has been so explicitly chosen to help our salons gain a competitive edge. Working for a learning organization that dares to risk and is confident to change gives me the freedom to risk and contribute to new ideas that help us all get to the next level. As the Marketing Manager, my goal is to bring all of our resources to the forefront of our client’s so they can see what a remarkable partnership it can be when you work with a distributor such as Salon Services. My advice to others who work here or are looking to work here: Don’t be shy about your career goals!! Tell your managers, share in your interviews and one-on-ones, or create the opportunity, as I did!
