|Salon 747 will host its Grand Opening
October 18 from 6-9 p.m.
With a passion for hair styling and a dream to open an authentic full-service salon, local hair stylist Amy Saunders recently opened Salon 747.
While the new West Chester-based salon is already open and operational, the staff will celebrate with a Grand Opening event that’s open to the public on October 18 from 6-9 p.m., featuring a live DJ as well as complimentary food and drinks.
According to Saunders, Salon 747 provides a number of services such as shampooing, deep conditioning, haircuts, hair color, chemicals services, styling, both natural styles and up dos, eyebrows, eyelashes, extensions and nail care. Seeing the new salon come to fruition is a long-time dream come true.
“I had my eyes on that space before I attended Paul Mitchell. I said if this space is still available when I graduate its meant for me. Sure enough it’s happening,” Saunders explains. “My inspiration for opening this salon came from the passion I had as a little girl doing my own hair at the age of 5, even though it took me until the age of 39 to realize that being a hair stylist was my real passion. My husband always told me it’s never too late to follow your dreams so that’s what I did.”
At Salon 747, Saunders not only emphasizes the best hair care for all hair types, but also personalized customer service. “Our mission is to provide healthy hair care for all hair types and to put a smile on each clients face from the experience they received from our staff,” Saunders says. “That feeling of making someone else feel better about themselves is the reason I love what I do.”
In addition to offering quality hair and nail care, Salon 747 also sells several hair products such as Paul Mitchell, Matrix Kendra, Wella, and Design Essentail. While other salons may stock these same brands, Saunders says her salon’s results, customer service, and work with local charities is what sets them apart from all the others.
“We are truly committed to making a difference and giving back to our community and bringing awareness to high blood pressure, which really hit home when I lost my brother on November 07, 2012 at the age of 46 years old,” explains Saunders. “l want to use my skills in the hair care industry to give back to my brother who I dearly miss and if I can bring awareness and save one person from losing a loved one would be an absolute blessing to my life.”
Salon 747 is also partnering up with other charities, such as the Ronald McDonald House and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. “We see our salon in five to 10 years from now with 10 to 20 more locations with millions donated to different charities,” Saunders explains.
In fact, on October 17, Salon 747 is teaming up with Boy’s Hope Girl’s Hope to do hair and nails to fundraise, and the following week the staff will be doing charity work at Hair Cuts From the Heart on Logan Avenue near Findlay Market.
