We all love to hear about local success stories, and for Square One Salons, the honor of Best Bridal Make-Up (Ohio Weddings Magazine) and a nomination for the yet to be named Best Hair Salon (Columbus Weddings) have recently come to light!
‘It all comes from the idea of going above and beyond for wedding guests,’ says Square One Brand Director, Laura Belle. ‘We try and ensure the entire day is relaxing and stress free at each location. We have wedding coordinators who take the pressure off the bridal party. We are aware that timing, level of service and just having a good time are part of the process. That’s the great thing about being a full-service salon, we have the ability to do it all!’
Square One has been riding high in recent months with ‘Best of…’ awards and ‘Outstanding Salons….’ recognition. ‘At Square One our guests are always number one. We know and understand there are so many moving parts on that special day! We consider all the factors when booking a wedding. We are fortunate to have many service providers on one team, under one roof! Our bridal parties love to bring in food and beverages…basically the whole PARTY into the salon! And why not? It’s their day!’ Belle continues. ‘Our make-up teams are magnificent. They are studied and really take the day seriously, but keep up that light energy that brides crave on the big day!’
Not all clients are eager to visit a salon, they choose off-site for their wedding day. ‘No Problem,’ says Belle. ‘Our teams love off-site events. We have a separate menu for that, and we send the same Square One experienced team for these moments!’ Ohio has many, many salons and for Square One, the idea that they received mention in Ohio Weddings reinforces their drive to continue forward with their style of business and culture. ‘We stick to what works. Our make-up teams, actually all of our teams, get continuing education on all things related to weddings. We refuse to stay stagnant. Our teams are growing and we are elevating our skills on the regular.’
Square One, now over 20 years in the salon industry, sees a strong future with bridal a big part! ‘This company is all about enjoyment. We want the same for our guests, brides, homecomings, you name it….the experience here is always welcoming, fun and enjoyable!’ Belle says with a smile!
Square One Salons have 6 locations in Columbus, Oak Creek, University of Dayton, Downtown Dayton, Downtown Columbus and New Albany. They are headquartered in the Cannery Building in Dayton.
