Salon Gloss and its owner, Sophie Aslanidis, have been voted as both Racine County's Best Stylist/Barber and Best Salon. While Aslanidis won the top honor as Best Stylist last year; this is her first year seeing her salon clinch the Best Salon category.
Ever since opening Salon Gloss in 2011, Aslanidis has watched as her salon has steadily grown. "You know, we have been pretty steady," Aslanidis said. "We're still growing, and we have a lot of room to grow, so it's good!"
Salon Gloss is all about hair innovation, and Aslanidis is careful to ensure she stays ahead of the curve. She makes it a priority to stay educated and up-to-date on all of the newest hair trends.
Aslanidis believes that the reason Salon Gloss is sitting pretty at No. 1 is the salon's commitment to its customers. "I don't let anyone leave the salon if they are unsure or unhappy about their hair," Aslanidis said.
She also focuses on being meticulous and serious about her work. "It's customer service. It's the way that I just welcome everybody and anybody, no matter what age," said Aslanidis.
