For the 7th consecutive year, Cottonwood was chosen as one of the "TOP 200 SALONS IN AMERICA" by Salon Today Magazine.
We feel blessed to be a part of an exciting industry working with deeply committed salon professionals. To be selected in the Salon Today 200 is an honor not just for owners but for our Cottonwood Team that has worked hard since our salon opening in 2000! Every year, our team looks forward to that letter announcing our being included in this award. Our business growth has been driven by organic growth through our people.
Recently, Salon Today expanded the awards beyond business growth. There are now a dozen categories to provide evidence of outstanding achievements that showcase the innovative programs and best practices that are critical to success.
- Customer Service
- Client Retention & Referral Programs
- Staff Recruitment & Training
- Advanced Education
- Environmental Sustainability
- Retail & Merchandising
Another great reason to strive to be included in this elite group is the opportunity to share this award with our GUESTS! Our goal has always been to be the best salon in our market. Being chosen for the Salon Today 200 reinforces to our Guests that we are being recognized for our performance. Affluent Guests respond positively by wanting to be associated with a great brand.
Thanks to all of our Guests for your valued business and continued support! We appreciate you!
Finally, one of the greatest challenges any emerging business faces is the ability to attract and retain great professionals. In the salon industry, attracting and retaining people is the major critical success factor in not only surviving but thriving as well. Being recognized by the leading industry magazine, Salon Today, our brand achieves strong credibility to those salon professionals seeking to pursue their professional career path. Great professionals want to affiliate with great organizations. Being a part of the Salon Today 200 has helped us create the credibility that has helped us grow from four people to our current staff of over 50 Cottonwood team members.
