August 2016: We hear the words “back to school” blowing in the wind everywhere this time of year, but hair and skin get blown by the wind all year long—especially in Oklahoma. That’s why the subject of education is not relegated to August at Carol’s Place Hair and Nail Salon in Claremore. Year round education about hair, skin, and nail care is extremely important to salon owner, Carol Graham, and her staff. They are constantly learning about new products and techniques and passing the benefits on to their clients.
Carol and her staff want to help clients look their best, however they understand that the way hair looks is directly related to how healthy the hair is in the first place. That’s why they are very choosy about the products they use during appointments and what they sell in the salon. Carol loves the variety and quality of the Matrix Biolage line which is why the salon carries those almost exclusively, using everything from the shampoos and conditioners to color treatments. They also offer Biolage travel size bottles, which meet airline regulations. Always popular are Biolage Duo packages.
Carol has gone beyond simply offering these quality shampoos, conditioners and treatments. She actively looks for the best, professionally recommended tools not only to use in the salon but to offer for sale to her clients.
“I want our clients to have these professional products, so I watch for savings that I can pass onto them,” she says. “A professional grade blow dryer can last a person a lifetime and is better for the hair because it distributes heat more evenly.”
At Carol’s Place, you can find great deals on highly coveted styling tools like Chi Straightening Irons, Babyliss irons and blow dryers, and U-Smooth Flat Irons. Carol uses U-Smooth Flat Irons as an example to explain the difference a quality flat iron makes.
“U-Smooth is titanium plated, it doesn’t snag, and it leaves hair shiny and smooth,” she explains. “You only have to go over the hair once or twice instead of five or six times, as with other irons.”
It’s easy to see that using quality products on your hair also saves time which can be devoted to another important yet often neglected area: your skin. At Carol’s Place, you can not only purchase Mirabella Makeup products, which are paraben, gluten and talc free, but you can also learn how best to apply them. Four times a year, the salon hosts makeup events, where a professional Mirabella makeup artist comes in and does salon makeovers, displays the latest makeup techniques and provides general education on the latest Mirabella products.
These Mirabella Makeup Events are just one part of the ongoing commitment to education that Carol and longtime co-worker and nail technician Dani Freeman and stylist Terrin Zebert all share. Throughout the year, they all attend special classes, shows and other events to be aware of current trends and fashions. Carol’s Place doesn’t just want to offer cuts and colors, they want to bring their knowledge back to the community they love.
Each team member uses their specialties to help clients look and feel their best in the various services they offer. On the haircare side, clients can enjoy perms, Hothead extensions and Keratin smoothing treatments. Dani will treat your nails with her manicures, pedicures, Shellac and silk nail extensions. Facial waxing is also offered.
Whether they are helping clients get ready for weddings, proms, other special events or just helping them maintain a stylish and healthy look, the ladies at Carol’s Place Nail and Hair Salon want to work together as a team with their clients to keep every member of that team looking and feeling his or her best.
