Brand Evolution: From a Hairstylist's Chair to a $5 million Salon Company
After ten years of working for other salons, I took the leap in 2005 and opened my own salon company. I had one contractor that worked for me in a space that housed over ten hair stations. After six months, I had my first employee. Six years later, I had about thirteen people working at Urban Betty (half employees, half contractors). We then moved into a space double the size, and after a few months, I phased out my contractors and evolved into an all commission-based employee salon company. Now sixteen years later, we have two locations with over 60 employees and have made the Inc. 5000 list 3 times consecutively.
