Manhattan’s Premiere Concierge – Meet Alexandra Moise

New York City  the global epicenter of all things fashion and beauty. This metropolis is one of the largest in the world and is home to some of the most prestigious talent around. Known for the lights, sounds and cityscape, New York is where dreamers go to make their larger than life dreams come true.

Meet Alexandra

Within the heart of the city, you will find Salons by JC Manhattan — and within the heart of every Salons by JC location is a hard-working concierge. Meet Alexandra Moise, concierge at Salons by JC Manhattan.

With more than ten years of spa director experience under her belt, Alexandra knows exactly what it takes to operate a business within the beauty industry. From taking on marketing to maintaining inventory, Alexandra can relate to suite owners because she’s been through those experiences.

“I grew up in the industry and I was lucky enough to have amazing mentors that always taught me to aim higher,” Alexandra shares. “I’ve been in charge of grand openings, training, metrics, recruiting, reporting, tracking performance, and constantly focusing on how else I can continue to build my teams and businesses”.

This experience and ownership mentality is one that she brought on board with her when she joined the Salons by JC team. With her skills and background, Alexandra has created a community within Salons by JC Manhattan that supports salon suite owners in everything from space and inventory to education in marketing and necessary business skills.

Supporting Suite Owners

Working closely with suite owners is a large part of being a Salons by JC concierge, but Alexandra and her team take supporting their suite owners to the next level.

“We make them a priority,” Alexandra says. “Our tenants are dedicated, artistic, business savvy, hungry for more knowledge, and have a desire to create a VIP experience for their guests. We focus on their progress and are open to helping them with anything that they might need. Our work doesn’t stop after we lease a suite; I feel like it’s just beginning. We like to have fun and come up with new ways to stay motivated.”

In order to keep morale up, Salons by JC Manhattan hosts a variety of small mixers and big events open to the salon community. These opportunities allow suite owners to mingle, connect, and get to know each other on a personal level. Being able to create relationships with other owners is what makes the location feel more like a community than something you might find in a more traditional salon setting — especially in the big city.

 

One of Alexandra’s biggest priorities is making sure every person, from potential suite owners to seasoned salon suite owners, feel welcome and included. Whether they plan to lease a space on the spot, or plan to lease months from their visit, Salons by JC Manhattan has put systems in place to ensure that every person that walks into the location is equipped with everything they need to succeed, regardless of what part of the process they’re in.

“We’ve created seamless systems of operations that ensure every new tenant will be onboarded with the necessary tools for success,” says Alexandra. “We assist them with all of their business needs from licensing to information regarding reps from Salons Centric, L’Oreal, Depasqual Systems, Evolve Systems, and many more. We have the best of the industry under one roof.”

A Sound Core Team

With supportive and involved salon owners and a close-knit community within the walls of Salons by JC Manhattan, Alexandra says the continued success of the location is a no-brainer.

“Our core team— Barrett Tuttle-Owner , Shaurja Ray- Developer, and myself  is very involved with our suite owners,” Alexandra shares. “We share common business strategies, goals, and views, and we want to build the next best thing to take over Manhattan for the beauty industry.”

Together, the team’s main goal is to create a family that shares similar goals and values. Not only do they aim to be an elite franchise location, but also a safe and happy environment where people can shine and build something extraordinary.

To Alexandra, the most rewarding part of being a community manager for the Manhattan location is seeing her work culminate into a community that works, supports, and overcomes any small or big challenges together.

“We treat each other with respect and continue to work toward a bigger goal,” Alexandra shares. “I’ve always believed that you can have all the knowledge, intelligence and every singe tool that screams success, but without a solid foundation and a common goal, you won’t succeed.”

“I am one lucky girl to have such amazing partners and such a wonderful community,” says Alexandra. “I know it will only continue to grow and get better with time.”

4 Ways to Use Google Reviews to Improve Online Presence

In today’s technology-obsessed world, there are plenty of outlets for customers to leave a review of a business, such as Yelp, Facebook, and of course, Google. Depending on the settings on your mobile device, Google can even notify you if a location you’re at is lacking reviews or photos and recommend you should leave a review. It’s no wonder 73% of people trust local businesses more if they have positive reviews online (BrightLocal), which is just one reason to be on top of your online presence. Clearly, online reputation matters, so how do you capitalize on your online reputation through Google? This is where your Google My Business listing comes in. Here are 4 ways you can use Google Reviews on Google My Business to your advantage for your salon and your salon suite owners.

Use Positive Reviews for Marketing

Don’t let a glowing review go to waste! Get those good reviews in the face of potential clients or salon suite owners. Check out this fantastic review from our Salons by JC Westwood location in San Antonio, TX.

 

Google Review from a client praising one of our salon suite owners at our Salons by JC Westwood location in San Antonio, TX

 

There are many great snippets to use in this review, such as “This place is every bit of a 5 star rating!”. Create a social media post using Canva and share it on Facebook, Instagram, or your Instagram Stories. You can even use this quote in an online ad on Craigslist or Facebook.

Negative Reviews Don’t Mean Negative Business

Don’t be scared of a negative review of your salon. Negative reviews can actually increase conversions of a customer by 67% (Rocket Digital). How? By responding and replying to these negative comments, with professionalism, of course. This shows potential customers that you care about your clients and their experience. Whether it was a bad haircut, last-minute canceled appointment, or a communication mix up, be sure to attempt to resolve the problem. Take a look at this negative review from our Salons by JC Legacy location in San Antonio, TX.

In our response, we addressed the situation by informing this client that each salon suite owner is an independent owner, and attempted to resolve the situation by suggesting she return to the salon and try out a different hair stylist.

Respond with professionalism, resolve the situation, and leave contact information to handle the conversation privately and away from the online atmosphere.

Get New Clients and New Salon Suite Owners

Getting new clients is definitely the most beneficial part of great online presence, but reviews for your salon shouldn’t just be for your salon suite owners. Encourage your salon suite owners to leave reviews based on their experience as a business owner at Salons by JC. 85% of consumers now trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations (BrightLocal), which means a great review can be just as powerful as a referral from your best salon suite owner.

 

Positive Google Review from a Salon Suite Owner at Salons by JC Maple Grove located in Minnesota

 

This review from Salons by JC Maple Grove is a perfect example of the type of review to highlight on social media or paid advertising. Respond to these positive reviews and encourage potential clients or salon suite owners to call or visit the salon for information about your Salons by JC location when using these reviews in social postings or advertisements.

Increase Your Local SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

Search Engine Optimization, or SEO for short, is how well Google reads your Microsite and how Google decides where to rank your page in its search results. For Salons by JC locations, local SEO is a top priority, especially if you have competitors in your area. Local SEO promotes your services to consumers who are searching for your business near them, such as salon suites for rent or salons near me. So, how does a Google Review help local SEO? By making your business look established (and real) to Google’s algorithm. This is also tied to your Google My Business account, where you can manage and respond to reviews. By verifying all the information on your Google My Business listing, searchers will be more likely to find your location when searching for haircuts near me or salon suites in my area. And optimizing your online presence can put you at the top of Google search results without paid advertising.

 

BrightLocal’s Local Consumer Review Survey

 

Google has a science behind everything that they do, and a business with more reviews is more likely to be shown to a user than a business with no reviews or reviews with no description. Just one fantastic review can make you stand out against a competitor – especially when it comes to gaining salon suite owners. A review can potentially be the first point of contact a prospective client or salon suite owner sees, so make sure your reviews are being managed and responded to accordingly.

If there is a Salons by JC franchisee who would like to know more about how Google can take your business presence to the next level, we are more than happy to do an online marketing assessment. Our cutting-edge in-house marketing team is here to make sure you have all the support you need- contact us at the Corporate Office. We look forward to hearing from you.

Staying Polished and Stylish with Megan Davis

Megan Davis’ first career choice was to become a nurse. As she began her nursing studies, she lost interest when one of her instructors made changes to the course certifications. But life has a funny way of presenting your destined path to you. Megan took up polishing her nails as a hobby. “I was pregnant with my oldest son and began polishing my nails,” stated Megan.  Eventually family and friends started asking her to paint their nails for them when they noticed her talent for nail art. “I didn’t charge for the nail art because I just enjoyed doing it so much”.

Staying Polished by Megan Davis

The Destined Path – Nails

After searching for a school that would accommodate her schedule, she enrolled and finished the nail program in a record 7 months, which is a huge accomplishment for a part-time night school student. “I was hired by a salon before I even completed the program, and I was super excited about the new gig!” Megan said. Graduating from school and having a job waiting for you is any student’s dream. Megan was excited about her early graduation and job offer, but, as she soon found out, things were not what they seemed.

A Rough Start to a Blossoming Career

“Unfortunately, the salon was not what I thought it would be. I wasn’t allowed to perform certain nail services, because I was ‘new’. I got stuck doing pedicures for over 7 months,” stated Megan. The owner of the salon also restricted Megan to do only acrylic nails if she was requested by the client. “Even when I would get requested, the owner still tried to talk the client out of having me work on her nails. This made me hate working in that salon so much that I almost gave up doing what I love,” stated Megan. Trying to figure out her next move because she was so unhappy, Megan reached out to another salon owner about a nail tech position she had seen. “I made the call to the new salon. The following week I went in and did a complete set on my Mom and was hired on the spot!” said an elated Megan.  

She loved working at that salon; she was receiving the respect she deserved from the owner, and she was also getting to do what she loved…nails. A year into her journey, she made the decision to try something new. “The 50/50 commission wasn’t cutting it for me, and as much I loved that salon, I needed to make a change for myself,” Megan emphasized.

Making the Move to Salons by JC

After working briefly out of her house to increase her income, she made the decision to become a Salon Suite Owner at Salons by JC – Huebner Commons with her friend and former co-worker, Sandra Garcia. “I was terrified about the idea of leasing a salon suite. What if I don’t make money? What if my clients don’t follow me?” stated Megan. Looking back almost two years later, she asks herself why she worried so much. “Salons by JC has been amazing for my business and for me. My clients love it and so do I!”, stated Megan. “I never imagined I could own my own successful salon.”

The Perks of being a Salon Suite Owner

After working in a salon with tan walls, Megan knew that her salon suite was not going to be boring. “Being in the industry, you have to set yourself apart from everyone, and you have to be distinct,” Megan said. Working for herself and setting her own hours has been very beneficial to her career and her success. “In my eyes, nails are tiny canvases. I love painting small details on nails because it’s so fun! When you leave my chair, I want you to feel 100 times better than you did when you first sat down,” stated Megan.  

As Her Clientele Grows so Does Her Popularity

Having her own business has definitely opened up many amazing opportunities for Megan.  Earlier this year, she assisted another local nail tech working for a popular salon in NYC- Chill House at SXSW. The event was all about female empowerment and featured female business owners. Megan was also invited to work at the JMBLYA Music Festival VIP Section, known as the “Fur Coat,” which provides festival nails for a few ladies between the various performances of the night.  

Congratulations to Megan Davis! As her career continues to soar, she is also venturing into graphic arts. After all, what she does on her tiny canvases would look great on larger canvases, bringing life to homes and offices.

Empowering You- Salons by JC takes the Orlando Hair Show

We all wish to constantly improve our work, our lives, and ourselves. At Salons by JC, we thrive as a salon suite community that supports and promotes self-empowerment and improvement. This mentality is one that Salons by JC was built upon – giving hard workers and dreamers the ability to run their own businesses. We empower and provide the tools beauty professionals need to become their own bosses. This mission is one that drove the Salons by JC team to the Premiere Orlando Hair Show for a weekend packed of empowering YOU.

On June 2, Salons by JC hosted its first ever national educational workshop at the OC Convention Center in sunny Orlando, Florida. In partnership with our good friends from Salon Centric, Salons by JC was thrilled to invite keynote speakers to communicate and share their stories with both the location and salon suite owners in attendance.

The three keynote speakers in attendance are industry movers and shakers in their own rights. The keynote speakers included: Daniel Mason Jones– Social Media Influencer and Owner and Creative Director of Muse Salon and Spa in Atlanta, Ryan Hanson- Digital Marketing Manager at Salon Centric, and Kim Becker– Founder and CEO of Hello Gorgeous! of Hope, Inc., a non-profit that provides makeovers of a lifetime to women battling cancer all over the nation.

The event kicked off with a note from Salons by JC President, Steve Griffey. “I’m grateful to the people in attendance and their commitment to improving their craft – business skills, social media, and leveraging technology,” Griffey said. “We plan on launching robust educational training across all markets.”

Salons by JC President, Steve Griffey addresses the attendees

This was huge to share with salon suite owners. Salons by JC wants to continue to provide salon suite owners with the tools they need to be successful, while providing them with the knowledge needed to operate from the ground up. This includes empowering, training, and equipping salon suite owners with resources to help them manage salon finances, basic business principles, and plan for the future.

“The first major step toward this new training begins here – at Premiere Orlando,” Griffey said in his final statements. “We are thankful to Salon Centric for giving us this opportunity today. Today is not only about improving you, but improving your business.”

“WTF?”- Why the Fear?

Daniel Mason Jones of Muse Salon and Spa was the first keynote speaker to address salon suite owners in attendance. He began by asking, “WTF?- Why The Fear? Fear holds us back from the things we want to do and the goals we want to accomplish.”

Jones opened by sharing his background and his early desires to be an embalmer at a funeral home. Despite his initial goals, Jones explained that life has a funny way of placing you exactly where you’re meant to be. “You are each here today, because this is exactly where you’re supposed to be,” Jones said to the audience. “I’m here today because this is where I am supposed to be.”

Daniel Mason Jones tells his tale of success

What shifted Jones’ path toward the hair industry was a chance encounter. One day on the job, a client of his shared that she was in the midst of battling stage 4 breast cancer. After chatting with her for a while, she asked him if he was interested in cutting her long hair. He agreed and quickly realized that this was not going to be an ordinary haircut. This was going to be an experience that would change the course of his life, forever.

“That day, I gave more than just a haircut,” Jones recalled. “It was a confirmation of her illness.” As he cut and styled her hair that day, Jones realized the power he had to deliver happiness in the grim face of an often harsh reality. He had the power to make a positive impact in someone’s life who deserved it most. “My client tied everything into place for the rest of my career that day.” Hair became Jones’ calling, his life’s purpose – living for the growth and success of others.

Jones discussed the importance of time – and the essence that what we decide to do with the time we have been given while on Earth is imperative. He directed the audience towards a video of a contestant from X-Factor UK who was continuously told by colleagues that he would never make it – he was not good enough. At the end of the video, the contestant delivered a spectacular performance that blew everyone away.

“Don’t keep your talents hidden, no matter what people tell you,” Jones shared. “The talents you have are meant to shared with the world, and the world deserves to see them.”  Jones’ words of wisdom left everyone in attendance inspired and revitalized to keep pursuing and realizing their dreams.

Let’s Get Social

After a quick break, the group reconvened for the social media portion of the workshop where both Daniel Mason Jones and Ryan Hanson from Salon Centric demonstrated the importance of online branding.

Daniel Mason Jones and Ryan Hanson talk social

“Social media is all about tactics and strategies,” Hanson shared. “At Salon Centric, we have over 100 brands, and we showcase them through brand ambassadors and UGC – user generated content. Instagram stories are a great way to showcase testimonials, products, and sharing incrementally about what you do in your suite space. ”

President Steve Griffey, Daniel Mason Jones, Ryan Hanson, and Drew Johnston

One of Hanson’s main points was that stylists often focus too much on the before and after images. While they are valuable in their own right, people are also interested in the process.  Sharing the story behind the business, employees, and clients are also of great importance. It is the human aspect of social media to which users respond the best. Allow the audience into your work space and make them feel immersed in your world.

Impacting Your Community Through Your Skills

The last keynote speaker of the day was Hello Gorgeous! of Hope Founder and CEO, Kim Becker. Her sister and Hello Gorgeous Coordinator/Trainer, Trisha Greenlee, and Hello Gorgeous Trainer, Julene Franz, were present in the audience for her presentation.  2018 beckoned the start of a wonderful relationship between Salons by JC and Hello Gorgeous! Hello Gorgeous! gifts women battling cancer a day to forget their hardships, doctors, and medications, and just feel beautiful for a day. Their goal to is to return some of the femininity that the battle with cancer too often strips away.

“We were so blessed when Steve reached out to us at the end of last year,” Kim shared. “We are excited about rolling out this program across the Salons by JC markets. The Salons by JC corporate team is truly passionate about the empowering you mission and bringing this program to women who really need it.”

Hello Gorgeous! Founder and CEO, Kim Becker enlightens the crowd about community involvement

Together, Salons by JC and Hello Gorgeous have put together two very successful and emotional Hello Gorgeous Makeover Days at two corporate locations in San Antonio and New Braunfels, for two very deserving women. The impact is best put in Kim’s own words: “This past April we had a makeover day in New Braunfels and the Gorgeous Lady recipient came back to give hugs to the salon suite owners a few weeks later.” Those kinds of relationship are what Hello Gorgeous! is all about. 

Salons by JC Team and The Hello Gorgeous Team

Even the smallest amount of time given to a charitable cause will have a significant impact in how you and your business are viewed. Kim’s mission is a reminder of how our actions, as individual businesses and as business owners, play a big role in our community’s success. Spreading positivity and goodwill into the world is a great thing and if your business can be a part of that, then seize every opportunity you get.

Future So Bright

It was a whirlwind weekend in the Sunshine State. The first ever Salons by JC Empowering YOU Workshop went off without a hitch and attendees walked away feeling even more empowered and motivated to take on the world.

“I really learned a lot today. This is all new to me, but I want to learn so that I can share what I know with my Salon Suite Owners and help them grow their business,” said Rita Carter, Owner of Salons by JC Mobile after the event. “When Daniel Mason Jones spoke about fears, it really hit the nail on the head and made you think, what is your fear?”

Salons by JC aims to continue to provide information to salon suite owners that they may not otherwise have the opportunity to learn from the most trusted industry professionals. This is the first step in a long process of becoming the nation’s premiere salon suite concept – not only in the realm of retail space, but of entrepreneurial education and development.

Workshop attendees with the 20 year anniversary banner

We thank all the inaugural Empower You Workshop speakers, attendees, and Salon Centric for partnering with us on this endeavor. We cannot wait to continue our mission of delivering quality to the Salons by JC community and empowering more individuals to come.

The Sparkling Career of Julie Johnston

Julie Johnston has been around the world and back. With all of the experience she has under her belt, she’s an international stylist extraordinaire. Julie’s husband served in the military, and with that honor and duty came the lifestyle of moving every three years, transforming a new house into a home, navigating a new location, integrating in a new community, and learning a new culture.

The sparkling and sensational, Julie Johnston

It’s All About Balance

“I had to teach myself how to build a clientele quickly to be able to contribute to the household income,” said Julie of balancing the family’s military assignments and her career. “The fact that I did learn to build a clientele quickly allowed me to enjoy the income until we packed up and moved to our next duty station.”

Julie shared that one of the great advantages of moving so often is that she experienced a variety of styles, techniques, and cultures, which all affect the world of hair. She had the pleasure of taking educational classes from international companies, as well.

She got her professional start in hair care and styling in 1990, when she went to school after her youngest child was born. She graduated from the renowned Pivot Point School in Illinois. When her family settled in San Antonio after retiring from military service, Julie found Salons by JC, and opened her business there in Spring 2009.

Julie and friend celebrating a very successful career!

Taking Full Control 

Julie was not new to the salon industry. She grew up the daughter of a salon owner, so it was a lifestyle that she learned through her adolescence and beyond. As she nears retirement, she reflects back on her time in the industry and at Salons by JC Huebner Commons location in San Antonio, Texas. 

“The BIG difference working at Salons by JC and all the different salons I’ve worked around the world is that I get to own MY business! The whole ‘enchilada,’” said Julie. “ I take care of my inventory, my backbar, making appointments, bookkeeping, paying my rent, paying my taxes, saving for retirement; it’s all on me. I control my future and my business and most importantly, MY SCHEDULE & MY LIFE!”

Because her mom was a salon owner, Julie also had an early start on learning the ropes in the industry.

“I was told by my mom years ago – Never take advantage of your clients. They pay for their service so there’s no ‘ownership.’ They don’t owe you anything; they don’t owe you their loyalty; they paid you already,” she said. “If they keep coming back, it’s because they appreciate your work. That’s the best compliment you can get. If they give you a tip, it’s a ‘thank you.’ You don’t work for the tip, nor do you ever expect a tip.”

In her nine years at Salons by JC, Julie has had some incredible experiences and learned the ways of the entrepreneurial world as she has demonstrated her talents both as a stylist and a business owner in an amazing way.

Enjoying her retirement party with friends.

Some Advice for New Salon Suite Owners

To salon suite owner newbies, she offers this advice, “ALWAYS save for your ‘rainy day.’ Put yourself on a budget to always have backup money to pay your salon bills. Remember this is YOUR business so ACT like a business owner not just a stylist. The successful suite owners are the ones that figure that out early on. Salons by JC provides your space, but you are responsible for your customers and your business.”

She also talked about the importance of respect and having pride in what you do. She emphasized that it is imperative to always respect your customers and respect their time – to be on time and dress professionally.

Julie has had a tremendous career and many memorable moments while at Salons by JC. She said one of the most memorable of these was when a fellow suitemate was diagnosed with cancer.  She was going to miss a few weeks of work; from her surgery to recovery to all of her different appointments and treatments. Salons by JC worked with her, reduced rent; whatever they could to help her out so she wouldn’t lose her business. The other HUGE event and the astoundingly memorable moment was after the Houston floods of 2017.

“We were fortunate here in San Antonio, but in Houston there were fellow suite owners not so fortunate. Salons by JC corporate office raised money and divided it amongst the stylists that lost everything. That says a lot about this company.”

Julie and husband, Drew Johnston – VP of Operations for Salons by JC

We appreciate Julie for sharing her wisdom from her time in the business and at Salons by JC. We honor and raise our glass to you, as well, in your retirement. Cheers to you, Julie – thank you for your service to the industry, your own business, and to Salons by JC!
