TRUSTED SASKATOON RECOGNIZES OUR 10 YEAR PARTNERS!
In this series of articles, we are shining a spotlight on the businesses that have been with us since we launched in 2011. We want to thank them for TRUSTING our team, and we are recognizing each of them individually for providing 10 years of OUTSTANDING service to the public of Saskatoon and surrounding areas! In this article, we celebrate and recognize Laddie, Shelley and their amazing team at Hairstyle Inn Salon.
Right from the start Laddie and Shelley James believed in our idea and they believed that together we could make a difference! Hairstyle Inn Salons are a fun, fresh & locally owned; well-known salon group with TWO Saskatoon locations. Hairstyle Inn at the Centre Mall and Hairstyle Inn at The Lawson Mall. Their wonderful creative team makes up one of Saskatchewan's premier cut, colour and design salon groups, established by the James family in 1976 when Laddie’s father opened up their first location.
Laddie has an impressive reputation within the salon industry worldwide, and he has been invited as an expert to perform and speak at major industry events and fashion shows from New York to Amsterdam! Hairstyle Inn Salons are in an industry that is notorious for the turnover of staff, but they buck the trend. They have many long-standing team members, including Katherine, who has been a stylist at the Centre Mall location for 35 years! This really showcases what sets them apart, the wonderful, caring and supportive environment that has been built and nurtured there over the years. They have a huge heart and it is OBVIOUS to anyone that steps inside their salons.
It’s easy to see why Hairstyle Inn Salons have such a great, long-standing history in Saskatoon and so many satisfied clients... me included! Every time I walk up to the counter I’m always greeted with a smile no matter who sees me first. I’ve been lucky enough to have my hair done by a few of their talented stylists and each and every time they are professional, friendly, and really take their time to get to know me personally. At either HSI location, it really is a place where everyone knows your name... or at least that’s how I feel! I’ve been to other salons around the city for many years and Hairstyle Inn Salons are by far the best around, and I’ll continue to go there and rave to others about their amazing team and outstanding service!
GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY IS THE FOUNDATION OF HSI
The team at Hairstyle Inn Salons also gives back to our community in a huge way. They always step up to donate items and time, including volunteering at The Persephone Theatre, C95 Radio marathon, and last but certainly not least, the non-profit that Shelley James founded in 2006 - TLC@HOME. TLC@Home stands for Touching The Lives Of Children at Home. They provide a Christmas shoebox full of gifts for children at several participating inner-city schools in Saskatoon. They started with a few classes in one school and have continued to grow the number of children we reach each year. Their goal is to reach every child in each of the community city schools in Saskatoon.
The Trusted team have been actively involved in fundraising and donating our time to this great initiative. We treasure the days over the last 7 years that our team has been invited along to distribute gifts directly to children in the schools.
Our involvement with TLC@Home sparked the idea to launch a non-profit category on Trusted Saskatoon to further support 4 local non-profits and the Trusted team is proud to support TLC@Home as a Trusted Saskatoon Non-profit.
Hear from the wonderful Laddie and Shelley by watching the Behind The Brand interview that was recorded last year.
Over the last 10 years, Hairstyle Inn Salons has been re-checked, re-verified and mystery shopped several times, and each time they pass with flying colours. They continue to be top salons in Saskatoon and they have always upheld our 5 TRUSTED GUARANTEES of service for the 10 YEARS as Trusted Saskatoon Partners.
When the Trusted Saskatoon team gives a business the 'Thumbs Up' it really means something!! So continue to use and recommend TrustedSaskatoon.com to FIND GREAT LOCAL BUSINESSES YOU CAN TRUST like Hairstyle Inn Salons!
