Michelle Meiers Story:
The only way I would ever open a salon I would always say is it needs to be different. Something unique. Faith has brought me to my journey and the back story of why I opened Arbor Hair Studio. After I had my first daughter 7 years ago my health spiraled downhill. I had some major medical issues arise including hormonal, dental, post-partum, being in pain, hitting the lowest of lows. I searched for answers with traditional medicine and even though I learned a lot it wasn’t helping. Until one day my Mom helped me search for a Dr in Minneapolis that helps with the entire body and will forever be grateful for his words of wisdom that I hold dear to my heart and changed everything. He asked Michelle how often do you work? I replied a lot, I am a work-a-holic. One true point he mentioned along with an overwhelming amount of holistic information he said you need to switch to a healthier colorline and product line. I thought he was absolutely crazy and wondered why my mom would even bring me to him. After research he was right. This was a huge culprit to my sickness. The average person does their hair if at all one time a day. I am doing anywhere from 7-12 clients per day. Applying products to their hair and washing color out while everything is seeping into my blood stream. Along with all the other environmental toxins we are exposed to everyday. This was eye opening. He was right. Exactly right. This is not a sprint Michelle it is a marathon. I have lived by that for the last 5 years of switching.
I could tell you to walk around the Target aisles in the shampoo and conditioning area and start reading for things that are bad for your hair on the back of every bottle. Trust me, I did. I did the hard work for everyone. I was ready to give up until I eventually spoke with my product rep. I told her I wanted to find the best performing natural product line that met my vision for the salon. She told me two different options. My heart told me Kevin Murphy.
I honestly feel so blessed and honored to be carrying the Kevin Murphy product line and retail line. It has changed my career in so many positive ways I can’t even explain.
My Kevin Murphy representative mentioned nonchalantly one day about how passionate Kevin Murphy is with the environment and they are affiliated with Green Circle Salon. Green Circle Salon? I was intrigued and wanted to know more. This was the second building block that I used to create Arbor and at the time; a unique salon that Central MN did not have. Today, I am still proudly represented as a Green Circle Salon.
After all these years I am still giddy about finding out anything on the holistic and natural side of anything however all I could think of is who else is like minded like myself. Today, I have a great team of like minded staff and independent contractors. This morning I purchased a strip mall. I will be moving my salon from a 1,400 square foot salon to a 7,000 square foot space. This is due to my clientele loving the Kevin Murphy brand and expediential growth that we have today. I cannot wait to grow more of the product knowledge in the community and the industry. I would not be here today if it wasn't for Kevin Murphy!
