When Cindi Galiher and Kathy Korab set out on their entrepreneurial journey as salon owners, they set out to focus was on the overall customer from start to finish as they planned their ‘total gut renovation’ of the salon from top to bottom. The duo bought the salon in September 2018 and began the overhaul the first week of January.
“One of the core visions that we had for the salons was that we wanted people to come in and feel comfortable,” suggested Galiher, who previously worked for over two decades in the cosmetics industry. “We decided to add a restaurant-quality Nespresso coffee machine in the lobby as one of the centerpieces for our customers to enjoy.”
“This is something new to this area – it’s like bringing a piece of Manhattan to the suburbs. Customers can receive the upscale Manhattan salon experience right here in Chatham.”
The full-service salon offers a variety of quality services from top of the line hair treatments to nails and waxing. One of the key differentiators that sets Glaze Salon apart from the rest is its retail offerings of the highest quality products such as their inventory of Oribe haircare. The salon is also up to date on the latest trends and offers a line of cannabis oils and creams. Moreover, the friendly and skilled professionals atGlaze Salon embody the spirit of the salon.
“We’re very fortunate that our entire staff are seasoned stylists and have a passion for their work,” added Galiher. “They’re all educated on the latest styles – it’s something that I believe is important.”
Korab, the salon’s co-owner is amongst the stylists and brings with her over two decades of experience in the industry, most of which was served in Chatham. It’s the personal connections that she’s made of the years that continues to drive her motivation.
“I love people – I enjoy the relationships that I’ve established with my clients over the last two decades,” Korab said of her relationship with the customers. “I never feel like I’m coming to work when I’m here.”
The changing of scenes and roles has been refreshing for Korab.
“It’s like being in a different world and everything we have done is with our customers and staff in mind,” she added. “Come in and discover the latest techniques from our talented staff.”
While the salon has recently completed its renovations, it has starting building momentum as they just announced the hiring of three new stylists.
“It’s just so much fun to see how excited our customers get when they see us,” added Galiher. “Just to sit here and soak in the customers’ reactions brings me joy in what I do and that makes it all worth it.”
