Our Goal

When our team began working together we couldn’t have been a more diverse group of people, but we all had one thing in common: we wanted to work in the best Raleigh Hair Salon and we wanted to see a big change in the beauty industry. As someone who is not a stylist, I explained to the staff how nerve-wracking going to a hair salon can be! My salon visits in the past had been scary, confusing, and even, dare I say, traumatic. “What if they cut my hair too short?”, “what if they don’t quite understand what I want?”, “what if I go home and I can’t remotely recreate what they did and I look like a giant poodle for the next 6-8 weeks?” Any of these sound familiar? I’m going to venture out and say at least one of those rang true. We’ve all had bad haircuts, most of us have had a hair coloring experience that left us in tears, most of us have had mornings where we have completely understood why Britney Spears broke down and shaved her head back in 2007. When I told the stylists how awful and perplexing it can be as a client, they were all shocked! They thought, “why would someone cut too much of your hair off?” and “why would someone color your hair a completely different color than what you asked for?”. So, what reasons did we come up with for why these things happen? Poor client consultation, lack of effective communication, and overpromising results.

At Sky Parlor Salon We Pride Ourselves on Being Different.

It's always so hard going to see someone new to have your hair cut, but Jamie made me feel at ease! She gave me exactly what I wanted and didn't make me feel bad when I asked her to fix this and that because I am so particular! I can't wait to return to see Jamie and get some hair coloring done.

Jen does an amazing job on my hair. She has colored it many times and the color always looks natural, stylish and fun. She has and continues to do a fantastic job at cutting my hair. Everyone at Sky Parlor Salon is great and they collaborate and give insight to help make every stylist their very best!

My girlfriend is a client here - she sees Marti every month or so. Admittedly, my salon knowledge is novice at best. That said, her hair has never, ever looked better than it does when she walks out of this place... 5 stars and worth every penny.

Goldwell Master Colorist Raleigh Hair Salon

Many years ago, I worked for my parents who own a video production company. Because it is a family business, you inevitably end up wearing many hats and being the czar of many different jobs. I mainly managed projects and worked as a video editor. On production, there were times that I was called on to work as an audio tech and was made to wear headphones on long production days. In those days, having a really good set of headphones that picked up every nuance of sound was essential to making sure the client got what they needed.

Raleigh Hair Salon: Full-Time Hair Stylists Needed

Last year I wrote about why booking too far in advance can be dangerous for your business, and this concept of margin so eloquently captures what I had recognized had been my problem: I was so booked up with clients that I wasn’t leaving any margin for error, growth, planning, or reflection.

Happy Holidays Raleigh, Sky Parlor Salon

When you are alone for days or weeks at a time, you eventually become drawn to people. Talking to randos is the norm. I’ll never forget the conversation with the aquarium fisherman, forest ranger, and women at the Thai market. It’s refreshing to compare notes on life with people from vastly different backgrounds.
