ABOUT

The Vision Behind Great Looks- A Multi-Cultural Salon

Our vision has always been centered towards building a community focused cultural center of beauty and style. One that allowed a camaradie to build amongst those that might never have interacted before and allow them to be unified in finding the best look for themselves despite their ethnic background. We focused on developing a dedicated, professional and ‘forward thinking’ team that cater to our guests for the ultimate salon experience. We dedicate monthly time to ensure that our staff continually focuses on education and has the knowledge to provide our guests with the most current hair trends for all walks of life.

Our Vision

 

Education and professional growth is something that we take very seriously. We owe it not only to our customers but also to ourselves as professionals to be contemporary with our craft. With that in mind, the Great Looks team stays current with a vast number of certifications, techniques and styling products. Our forward-thinking team travels extensively to various shows and seminars; which allows them to learn and absorb global trends in hair, makeup, and fashion so that our guests can be the beneficiaries. Our professional hair care services offer a comprehensive range of cutting, coloring, highlighting, relaxing, hair extensions and threading services for both male and female clientele. Our highly trained staff can provide everything from a simple trim to a complete new look. 

 

We constantly have our eye out for talented, dedicated and professional young stylists that are just getting started in the industry. We provide an apprenticeship program which allows less experienced stylists to gain education, training and techniques in a controlled-closely monitored environment. All of the interns are trained and supervised by Denise and must pass a rigorous 'in-house' training program which is above and beyond what they learn in beauty school, before they are permitted to cut/style a GL client. This allows our customers the opportunity to grow with a junior stylist and receive discounted pricing for hair services.

Community Involvement

 

Great Looks Salon proudly partners with local organizations which provide emotional, educational and monetary support for those less fortunate members of our community. GL hosts fundraisers in the salon and are active partners in offsite fundraising events. 

 

Offering Hope, Strength, and Courage for Breast Cancer Survivors! 

 

If you or someone you know and care about is undergoing treatment for breast cancer, you understand how drastically life can be altered during this time. Dealing with the disease's symptoms and treatments is difficult enough. But, in the case of women and children, coping with the extreme changes in outward appearance may seem even worse. The psychological and emotional effect of mastectomy and/or chemotherapy related hair loss can be tantamount to a secondary disease resulting in stress, anxiety, and many levels of depression. It can result in loss of self-esteem and confidence.

 

Cancer treatment is not the only condition that can result in hair loss. One of out of every 100 people suffers with Alopecia Areata, or unnatural hair loss. This is a common autoimmune disease that, while not life threatening, can also have psychological and emotional effects similar to those experienced by cancer patients. That's why GL is here to help! We provide products that are natural looking and beautiful that will improve a patients' outward appearance and help them regain a greater sense of well-being.
