Reflecting Back on 2010.

Brown and DeLine's Blog - A Little Off the Top

New Years is my all time favorite holiday. It is a time of reflection and projection. And although I am not a fan of “resolutions”, I do take the time to set annual goals.

Reflecting back on 2010, I am amazed at all the accomplishments that happened at the salon. 2010 was a giant year for education. More in-salon classes and opportunities took place than any other year. Industry icons like Elan Sassoon and Geno Stampora requested to visit Brown and DeLine. Our nail department learned and perfected the Shellac manicure (which is the all-time greatest service since pay-at-the pump gas). Our estheticians launched our new mineral make-up by Jane Iredale, which has been a great success. They also received advanced education with Glymed, our premier skin line. If you haven’t experienced these products, you should. It’s a miracle in a bottle.

In hair designing, we now offer Keratin Smoothing Treatments. This protein based treatment is a girls best friend! It eliminates frizz and creates ease in styling. 2010 also brought us back a few hair designers that had went on “sabbatical”. I was elated when they returned.

Our front desk staff is more professional and committed than ever. Sara Ringer took our beauty on the outside theme to the all-time highest level ever! She tattooed the longitude and latitude of the salon on her arm! Talk about lifetime commitment! Love that!

Our theme for 2010 was beauty, health, and wellness inside and out. Our “go big or go home” mantra embraced this like no other! We held seminars on several nutrition topics taught by dietician and Joust Fitness owner Melissa Gerharter. Jodi facilitated a weight loss contest. Vikki and Kelli lost a tremendous amount of weight and are more fit than ever. Several 5Ks were run, and even a triathlon. Kat, who is half the size she once was, continues to inspire us with her low-fat cooking tips often posted on her facebook.

And now with the end of the year only two weeks away, we received the news that Brown and DeLine Salon is being honored and awarded at the Salon Today 200 awards. This prestigious award recognizes top salons for best business practices and growth. We will travel to Chicago in March for the event. What a great year!

We will be celebrating our year at Weber’s Inn on January 15th at 8pm. Come celebrate with us!

Make it a Great Day!
