The Salon 2018

Dear Valued Client,

Thanks to you, 2017 was another great year at The Salon.  We have the absolute best clients in the Kansas City area, and it is your support that has allowed us to continue as one of the longest running, successful salons in Kansas City.  We could not have done this without you and we want you to know how much you are appreciated.

2018 will mark our 38th year here in the Country Club Plaza area, and we will continue to work non-stop to make it another great year for our customers and our team.  We have added great new talent to our staff, (check out their upcoming bios on our website), and picked up new hair and make-up lines so that we can always offer you the kind of services you deserve. Our team, through our education program, will be working with some of the top educators in our industry including, but not limited to, Wayne Grund, Sam Villa, Vidal Sassoon, and Keune's advanced academy in Atlanta, GA.  It is very important to us to stay current with the latest trends and techniques so that we can be the best that we can be!  It's all part of our commitment to you!

We have some exciting new products and services coming this year which will be announced on our website and Facebook.  While you're on our website, don't forget to check out our blog to see what's trending at The Salon. Your positive reviews on Yelp, Google, Facebook and our website are greatly appreciated and help people new to the Kansas City area find the kind of personal salon experience we have worked hard to create.  Again, we appreciate you and your business and thank you for all that you do.

As the year wound down and the holiday season approached, our team continued to look for ways to pay it forward. Although we support several charitable organizations throughout the year, when Christmas comes around our focus always turns to the children!  Basic necessities, clothing, and of course toys topped our list last year, so we teamed up with the Salvation Army for ideas and families that might need our help. With money donated from each team member and money contributed from The Salon, we scurried around town looking for the best deals possible knowing that the more we could buy the more children we could make happy on Christmas morning. We share this with you because we thought you might want to know it’s your support that helps us support those less fortunate in our community. Thank you!!!!!


Professional Hair Designers work long hours, evenings, weekends, and holidays.  Many of our personal days are spent at education events perfecting our craft and every hour we do our very best to create a masterpiece for our clients and ourselves.  We are committed to our profession.  If you follow us on social media, you will also see that it's absolutely critical to have fun as we go.  One of the many things we do every year as a team, is to dress up on Halloween.  Of course, like everything we do, we put a lot of thought and enthusiasm into it.  This year we used our creative hair and makeup skills to recreate characters from HBO's popular series, Game of Thrones.  I think the results speak for themselves.  The team that plays together, stays together! :)


As part of our advanced education program, The Salon sent members of our design team to the Keune Advanced Academy located in Atlanta, GA.  The Keune Academy was founded in 2011 with the shared belief that education is the key to success for salon professionals.  Through a focused curriculum in four distinct areas - hair color, design, finishing, and business - the Academy empowers our stylist at every level.  We share a collective passion: bringing out the true beauty in our clients using quality products and the latest professional techniques.  Our team is working hard to be the best!

The Salon 2017

Thanks to YOU, 2016 was another great year at The Salon. It is the support from our clients that has allowed us to continue for yet another year as one of the longest-running, most-successful salons in Kansas City. So THANK YOU! We want you to know how much you are appreciated.

2017 will mark our 37th year here on the Country Club Plaza, and we are committed to continue to work non-stop to make it another great one for our clients and our team. As such, we already have a number of awesome plans for the New Year. We will be taking our team to the International Beauty Show in Chicago in March, and attending the Keune Advanced Academy in Atlanta this fall to learn the latest trends and techniques from stylists around the globe. It is very important to us to stay current on the latest fashion and learn all that we can.

We also have some exciting new product lines coming in 2017. You can visit our new mobile-friendly website and our Facebook/Instagram page to check out these awesome products as they debut in The Salon. As always, your positive reviews on Yelp, Google, Facebook, and our website are greatly appreciated, and we love that they help people new to the KC area to find the personal salon experience we work hard to create here.

Again, we appreciate you and your business, and look forward to your visits in 2017! It's going to be a great year!
