We don’t hire people. We employ individuals.

Gavin Scott Salon and Spa engages creative personalities with the highest credentials. We seek out individuals who not only excel at their specialty, but comprehend our customer service enthusiasm. At Gavin Scott, we’ve been known to jump in the car and go pick up a client who didn’t want to drive in the snow and we’ve delivered product to client’s homes. That’s the way we roll. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.

ANNIE, Owner & Senior Director

I do what I do because…
I love and live for hair!

My favorite part of the job is...
It’s all about the clients – giving them a place to relax and making them look good and feel good.

My favorite tool is…
I can’t choose just one! So here are my top two: a Mason Pearson bristle brush (everyone should own one!) and a flat iron (straighten, curl – it can so easily change someone’s look)

My favorite product is …
Again, I have two – thickening spray and styling cream – but they’re best when used together!

My favorite thing to talk about with clients is …
Anything and everything! This is their time, so I love hearing what’s on their minds, what’s going on in their lives, and what I can make them feel their best.

This best thing about Gavin Scott is …
Working with a great group of women who truly love what they do and who are excited to be here! They make this a happy environment – and our clients can feel it the minute they walk through the door.

Personal note...
Believe in your dreams! Since I was nine years old, I had a wonderful dream that someday I would open a beauty salon. And now that dream has come true!

KRISTIE, Owner & Salon Manager

I do what I do because…
I love to give back to the community. As a co-owner of the salon, I see us doing that every day with our clients. What’s even more exciting is our team regularly comes together to give hands-on support for events like Relay for Life, Stand Down for Veterans and Walk a Mile in Her Shoes. And our amazing clients join us in providing for local non-profit organizations. It’s a humbling honor to help make these things happen.

My favorite part of the job is…
It is constantly changing. Every day we see different people, generate fresh ideas and experience something new!

My favorite tool is…
The cricket brush and my flat iron.  They are the only things that can tame my wild, curly hair!

My favorite thing to talk about with clients is…
What they are looking for in a salon – and what we can do to improve their experience at ours.

The best thing about Gavin Scott is…
Our team!  They are the ones who truly “make the space.”  We couldn’t have this great experience of owning a business without them!

Personal note…
My advice to everyone - Always live your best life.  Whatever that is...Whatever that looks like...Do It Now...Don't wait!
