O’HAIR Salon + Spa
From the grandeur of its neoclassical-style decorum to the wide-ranging mix of music, eclectic
collection of artwork and the way the O’HAIR Salon + Spa team fits into its community—hosting in-house concerts and charity events, among other outreach programs—the studio’s innovative culture
lends itself to a “non-traditional” salon environment, says General Manager Carlin Combs. Yet, while
constantly encouraging fashion-forward thinking and creativity among its extensively trained stylists
and technicians, O’HAIR’s fundamental concept remains quite simple: The moment clients walk
through the front door, they’ve entered a relaxing haven, fit for rejuvenation and transformation.
“One of the best parts of what we do is we get the opportunity to create change,” Combs says. “A
new hairstyle can completely transform the face. A facial treatment can restore the skin’s natural glow.
A new makeup regimen can lead the way for the next step in someone’s life. Although it’s an outer
change, the positivity radiates from all aspects of the individual.”
O’HAIR was built on a foundation of education, teamwork and consistency. Every new, carefully
selected stylist and technician is offered a training program to ensure a consistent client experience.
The goal, Combs says, is to provide the highest quality service through continuing education,
passion for the art and true care for others.
“Education is one of our core values,” Combs says. “Our team maintains their education internally
and externally every year, so they can bring the freshest perspective and newest techniques to each
individual and offer an unparalleled level of expertise.”
The salon’s non-tipping policy further perpetuates its team-oriented atmosphere and is “a
fundamental part of the bigger experience,” Combs says.
