…a franchise shop where results vary as much as the personnel vary from month to month.
Working with one hair designer develops a relationship of personal trust. It’s an investment in YOU, as much as it is an investment in ME.
If you are comfortable with your hair style - keep it. When you arrive for an appointment, I already know what you like. You don’t have to explain what you want every time.
If you are looking to change things up, it helps to know your hair designer. Some men and women are conservative, others are adventurous. I know your personality and your lifestyle. I’m not going to recommend a style or encourage you to move forward with a style that isn’t going to be practical for your personal life. You won’t be happy in a day or two. Yes, you’re in the driver’s seat when it comes to making your hair decisions, but there’s a reason I am the trusted advisor of many women and men. If you are willing to listen, I will be happy to share my experience and make practical recommendations. There may be a compromise that I will be better for you personally, than choosing a hairstyle like a hairstyle that will take hours to maintain to look just like a celebrity.
A conversation with Ralph
Sometimes women or men want to make a dramatic change - they want to move
forward in life and create a new image. Something easier to manage after a new
baby or more dramatic for a wedding. We work together to get it right. Sometimes
we do it in stages. Especially if someone is cutting very long hair or changing to
a new color.
It is rare for one of my clients to look in the mirror and be disappointed when we
Are finished, unlike some franchise shop experiences that I have heard about.
The customer says, “ don’t cut my bangs much,” and once the appointment is
over, the customer is thinking – “how did that happen ? I said one inch !” It happens
all the time. It doesn’t have to happen at all.
Each of us has an opportunity to leave the world a better place. I have several causes that are important to me. The first, Locks of Love is a charity that collects human hair to make hair pieces for persons in cancer treatment. Persons that want to contribute their hair come to my shop, I cut their hair and send it to the main office in West Palm Beach Florida.
As an animal lover, and the owner of three Dachshunds, I enjoy helping people find homes for homeless cats and dogs. I support the Humane Society, Pet Rescue and Dog Rescue all of which do great work in the St. Louis and Franklin County communities. Two of my dogs were shelter dogs. Adopting shelter animals is an opportunity to save an animal’s life while enriching your own.
I don’t worry about competition. The clients that come to me are looking for a different
Experience than what’s offered by the other shops. There are plenty of customers to go around.
My advice to new stylists would be this: to achieve long term success in this industry, you have to excel in the art of hair design and concentrate on being a good business person.
I don’t worry about reviews, although from what I hear there are many good ones on-line.
I’m the kind of guy that is true to myself and my craft. I try to offer upscale salon services, such as a little massage during shampoo time. Most people enjoy it. A few don’t. They
may prefer the franchise or barber experience. Life is about choices. Choose what makes you happy. That’s how I live my life. Everyone should.
