What is your business best known for?
Fabulous hair service, wonderful nail services, relaxing spa services. Our salon is the only full service salon/spa in the northern suburbs that caters to the entire family and also features a separate and adorable facility for children under 8 called Moppets.
When and how did your business get started?
I was working as a stylist at a salon in Arlington Heights. In 1983 I married my wonderful husband, Phil. The salon was sold to a new owner who was not taking it in a good direction, so we decided to strike out on our own. The first time I looked in the Tribune for "businesses for sale," I saw a small salon in Buffalo Grove for sale and, coincidently, it was owned by my former stylist. Buffalo Grove was a young and upcoming community with a population at that time of under 12,000. We felt that the existing business and the community showed great potential for growth.
Does your business offer a special deals card or program?
We offer a 20% discount on any new service to new and existing clients. We also offer 10% off all products in our vast retail area. Clients are given a retail punchcard which, when complete, gives them $10 off any retail purchase over $25. Membership in our Manicure Club may be purchased which offers $120 worth of services for only $85! Various monthly specials are featured to all clients who opt in to receive our email.
Clients are often overwhelmed at the size of the salon, but we pride ourselves on our friendly, welcoming and casual atmosphere.
How did you choose the area you did for your business?
We have been a part of the phenomenal growth of the wonderful community of Buffalo Grove for over 30 years. We named salon "The Best" because that is what we strive to offer, but, in fact, it is our warm and supportive community and our friendly and loyal clients who have made us "The Best"!
