The staff st Shears of Trinity have over 50 years of combined experience amongst them. They pride themselves on continuing education by hosting in-salon education classes or attending off-site classes and shows as they become available. This allows the team at Shears to bring the most up-to-date processes and products to the public and especially their clients. “if our clients are looking at a wall of hair products confused as to what will fit their needs we have failed, it is our job to educate and help them manage what we do for them once they leave and go home.” said Lori. Shears stylists work one on one with all of their clients to personalize their experience ensuring that everyone will get their desired results.
The extremely welcoming, upbeat and fun atmosphere of the salon is what sets Shears of Trinity apart from others in the area. “I have quite a large client base and I.m proud to say, I know them all personally because I want to, they truly become like a family to us. People don’t realize that is a very intimate service and clients want to trust you. They want to know that you are there for them. We DO care about them and have such a good time here. It is just a lot of fun.” McEwen said. Along with providing snacks and refreshments, each stylist involves all clients in conversation striving to create a fun environment, long-lasting relationships and comfortable experience for everyone that walks through the door.
