On February 28, the Atlanta | Southeast Chapter hosted a networking mixer at a fun hair salon with a bar. You’re probably wondering…salon, headshots, mixer?? Yes, this year’s Chapter theme is Non-Traditional Retail Spaces. Remember, customer experience can be anywhere! Customers are constantly looking for passionate experiences with daring point of views.
Guests enjoyed touring Melrose & McQueen, one of Atlanta’s most prized salons with a “cool kid” vibe. Owner Kristo shared how the space continuously evolves to fit changing needs of clients and the community. He discussed the psychology behind everything and how that has informed the space layout, merchandising and operations, while fostering the growth and careers of its staff and supporting the hair industry at large.
Because this was the first event of the New Year, it was also time for a new headshot! Melrose & McQueen hair stylists provided touchups and a photographer was available to capture the polished looks.
