What year was your company established?
It’s been a tremendous journey for me in the salon business. As a woman entrepreneur getting started, it wasn’t easy. My first shop was in 1983. I co-owned ‘My Nails’ in Bexley. I always knew I wanted to offer women more than just nails. In 1990, I opened a full-service salon, ‘Steiner Douglas.’
It was my own shop, but of course I wanted to continue to expand. In 2007, I moved my business to Easton Town Center, knowing full well this area could help me achieve my dream of opening a full-service salon and day spa. This year, my dream became a reality, Stile now offers day spa amenities.
How did you get started?
It’s hard to believe I’ve been in the salon business for 35 years. I’ve always loved helping women feel better about themselves. I guess you can say, ‘my entrepreneurial spirit’ started when I was a teen. When I was 15, I would get on my bike and sell Avon and Mary Kay products.
I would ride miles to get women the products they wanted. I always loved the response they would give me when I delivered their products, they were genuinely excited.
What makes your shop unique?
Stile Salon & Spa has a boutique feel while still offering all of the services you would find in a larger salon and spa. Most of the clients we served in the Bexley location are still with us today! My staff is educated on the latest techniques and products.
Our most exciting addition to Stile Salon & Spa is our party room. There is nothing like it in Columbus. We pride ourselves in helping our clients celebrate life’s biggest moments. The new room offers all clients a tranquil, private space to relax.
What would you like potential customers to know about your business?
I want them to know how much I love what I do. You’ll see that as soon as you walk in. Every client will get the relaxing experience they want – and leave feeling good about themselves. This year, I am so excited that we can host events!
It’s a great place to have your corporate team building events, bridal showers, bachelorette parties and birthday parties. Stop in and see me! if you’re a first-time client, we’ll give you a special gift.
