SALON EXPANSION: CONTINUED
As 2021 came to a close, Salon Chateau entered 2022 with a grand opening of the Education Suite. It is located upstairs (Suite D), housing D.O.P.E. Length Extension apprentices with classes offered by Hannah Green, Extension Specialist and Educator.
Our current apprentice team is comprised of three talented hairstylists– Ann, Carmen, and Hayli– who are all accepting new clients!

RENOVATIONS IN PROGRESS
Please pardon our progress in Suite A! With the expansion upstairs, the downstairs salon has downsized from 9 to 6 stylist chairs. We hope to have a larger waiting room with new seating after all renovations are complete.
Additionally, we anticipate a newly relocated smock room in the main hallway for ergonomic and functional purposes.
Although not yet installed, the full size door (seen in photo) has been repurposed and cut down the middle to create narrow French doors, which will help the flow of traffic, within the main hallway.
Since color can reflect onto clients’ hair, we decided on neutral colored walls. We will be implementing 2 toned cabinets which helps brighten the space by its paler tones reflecting light rather than absorbing.
OPEN NORMAL HOURS
In order to remain open our usual hours, the downstairs team planned to make improvements when the salon is closed. We prepared to stay late hours for the next few months until a wonderful salon client offered an extending hand, “paying it forward” by giving us a professional paint crew. We all were astounded, though incredibly grateful! As "paying it forward" is more commonly experienced while waiting in line for a coffee at a Starbucks, the impact this spirit of giving has bestowed on a small business team has touched us all profoundly.
A "PAYING IT FORWARD" BLESSING
So here's a big shout out to both, Victor @Umbehagen, and his angel client, David Mahler, a local Baton Rouge businessman, and founder of www.thegamecoin.net, which provides sports fans an opportunity to get in the game, building portfolios, to strategize and invest in the talent and growth of athletes worldwide.
