Here are a few testimonials from some current and past staff members:

“I have worked in eight salons in my career and by far Inspire has been the most delightful experience. It is because the business model of Inspire if based on Integrity and team work. In my option it is what works best!  I feel supported daily and trusted to be the best stylist I can be.  I am thankful to be a part of a diverse team and will remember Inspire for years to come.” ~Kristi – current stylist

“When I became aware of Inspire, just its name alone caught my attention. Right away, I knew it reflected my core values that I was searching for in a workplace, community and environmental mindfulness and a place that fostered personal growth. You see, I was a stylist for over a decade at that time and I had been searching for a nourishing home for my clientele and myself. The journey of being at Inspire transformed me, I was given unconditional support as a stylist, but more importantly, to be my better self. Even though I don’t work there anymore, the changes and friendships that I’ve made have created ripples into my daily life. My time spent at Inspire gave me the strength to launch forward with my dreams, and now I am ready to take another leap of faith. I am grateful for everything I have learned at Inspire and I will carry it with me forever.” ~Cindy – former stylist

“Having been at Inspire since it opened in 2012, I’ve been able to watch it grow into the amazing place it is today. I can’t say enough good things about working at Inspire. Everything from the management to the staff and clients has been nothing but positive and motivating. I can truly say I enjoy working there each and every day.” ~Olivia – current stylist (maternity leave)

“I have been at Inspire for three and a half years and I don’t know how I got so lucky. Working at Inspire has not only helped me build a clientele but has also shown me what it means to truly love your job – a concept I didn’t know was possible. Inspire’s dedication to environmental sustainability makes me proud of the work I am doing, knowing that we are doing our part for the environment and for the health and well being of our guests. I am proud to be part of a team that values a welcoming approach, free of pretentious egos and competition – another thing I didn’t know possible in this industry. Teamwork – in its truest form – sharing the hardships and sharing the celebrations is truly something I can say I have experienced working at Inspire. Kathryn, the owner, is the heart and soul behind the operation. She has exceptional vision, sensitivity and drive to create the best possible environment for each individual guest. She is constantly aware and willing to help out in any way possible. ANY way possible. When you have an idea or suggestion for the salon or a way to make something better she is always willing to hear your ideas and, in most cases, implement them. She has the ability to lead by example, motivate and support us though anything – in and out of the salon. I can truly say that working at Inspire has been some of the best years of my life and am forever grateful for the lessons I have learned and will continue to learn from my teammates, my clients and my boss.” -Heather-Current Stylist
