A One-of-a-Kind Beauty Salon’s Secret to a Strong Online Reputation

J220 Salon & Spa has managed to build the kind of reputation any business owner would envy, and to learn a little more about that reputation and this one-of-a-kind business, we sat down with the Manager, Tanieka Evans.

The first thing we wanted to know was what makes J220 Salon & Spa unique compared to the many other beauty salons and spas in Oklahoma. Tanieka told us:

“We take pride in each client. The same policies that apply for the clients also apply to the employees. We treat each client with the utmost respect, so we go out of our way to satisfy our clients. It’s more of a relationship. We try to make our clients feel comfortable and at home.”

Tanieka went on to tell us that the name of the salon comes from the Bible verse, James 2:20.

When we asked what the secret is to such a solid online reputation at J220 Salon & Spa, Tanieka pointed to their organic reviews and the fact that they use a booking app.

Making the World a Better Place by Giving Back

We also wanted to know what their mission is at J220 Salon & Spa and how they work to make the world a better place. Tanieka shared with us:

“We do a lot of give-back events. We team up with other salons and do toy and food drives, back to school events and marathons.”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, J220 Salon & Spa has grown through social media and community involvement:

“We’ve done local events, such as the Woman of Color Expo… The owner actually teaches classes and educates.”

It’s clear that Tanieka knows a thing or two about growing a business and building an online reputation. Here’s his expert advice for the many other business owners out there:

“You have to treat others how you would want to be treated. For example, if guests have an appointment, you can’t keep them waiting. Do it because you’re passionate about it.”

“We try to do our best to send them out of the salon with a smile and make sure that whoever they were in contact with in the salon made them feel like they were part of our family and they’re experience was 110 percent. We’re very concerned and compassionate about everything in their lives. We listen to them, and if there is something we can help them with other than their hair, we’re welcome to do that. We’re always open as far as things like that go.”

Ray also told us about the importance of having a quality team and how their salon tries to work as a supportive group:

“The hairdressing industry has changed considerably. A lot of it is all about ‘me’ and ‘I.’ I think that if we [want to accomplish anything], it needs to be more about teamwork and about the group performing as opposed to individuals performing. We try to stay away from individual performance and try to create team performance, which gives us maximum quality and enables the client to be with all of our staff as opposed to an ‘it’s my client’ type of mentality.”

Building Success, Online and Off

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Tiffany’s Salon and Spa has managed to. We asked Ray how they have gotten their name out and grown their business. He told us that word of mouth has always been number one for them.
