Hi Hannah! Tell us a little about yourself:
“I am an outdoorsy person and really enjoy being outside. My husband, Trey, and I have been married for a year and a half, and we like to hunt, go to the lake, and play with our dogs, Remi and Tyson. I love to work on projects for our house, too.”
What led you to Signature Salon?
“I was looking for a change jobwise, and was already a current client of Casey’s and really enjoyed being in the salon when I had appointments. I found out that Signature was hiring for their Front Desk Team and decided to apply! I remember when I came for my interview, everyone here was dressed up for Halloween and seemed like they were having so much fun! I should’ve worn my costume!”
What is the coolest thing you have learned about the cosmetology industry?
“That it’s not as simple as I thought. When I was a client, I just thought you come in, get your hair done, leave. I never knew the extent of the science behind hair coloring and cutting. I had no clue about what all actually went into each service. That was a huge wow-factor for me when I first started working here. I also didn’t know about how stylists should constantly be educating themselves and now I know that continuing your education is huge in this industry. I am proud that Signature promotes education through in-salon and outside cosmetology classes.”
Tell us a little bit about your Signature life:
“After being a part of the company for over a year now, I have learned so much about the industry as well as the stylists who work here. I am amazed at the talent and passion that we have at Signature. I never thought about the artistic side of what stylists do until I started working here. And now everyone is like family. Days at Signature can be chaotic at times because of how busy we can be, but it’s awesome! And I feel like I’m a team player and know when to ask for help, and I love that our stylists feel the same way; that we all respect and want to help each other. Being at Signature is so fun and I love that no one day is the same. I love that I am meeting new people every day and making awesome connections with each guest!”
What has been one of the best experiences you have had at Signature?
“I have two: I loved our Siggy Retreat and really enjoyed going to The Summit in Atlanta for ‘salon school’! The Retreat gives us an awesome opportunity to connect with each other outside of work. It let me hang out with our employees on a more relaxed, personal level, rather than just being their ‘location manager’. The Summit was an amazing experience for me because I was able to see first hand how salons like Signature can really build their stylists and help each of them grow. I loved learning more about the structure and planning behind a successful salon company like ours and I really understand now what sets us apart from other salons.”
What is something you like to do in your off time?
“Relax! I love to lounge around the house on my off time. I am a huge movie fan and if it’s cold, love to build a fire and watch a great movie. Even if I’ve seen it a million times! My absolute favorite movie has to be Fried Green Tomatoes.”
What is something that some people may not know about you?
“Growing up, I was a huge tomboy. I played a lot of sports: tennis, soccer, softball. I love to go hunting and fishing. And before working at Signature, I didn’t have any interest in hair and makeup!”
