Daily Inspiration: Meet Reese Bond, Michelle Woods and Andrea Hastings

Today we’d like to introduce you to Reese Bond, Michelle Woods and Andrea Hastings.

Thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
We have all been in the beauty industry for well over a decade now- which is so crazy!! And at one point all worked in the same salon together years ago! We’re all like sisters even though Reese technically isn’t blood. 😉 We’re definitely a package deal and between the three of us we have more Passion for this industry, the stylists in it and our guests look than we knew what to do with it!! Which led us to this dream that we created together one night over a girl’s wine night!

All three of us realized we can change it up in the beauty industry especially by how we all magnify each other’s strengths and minimize each other’s weaknesses. After that night our dream became real we started our business plan, found an amazing location & created our 210 plan to shake up the beauty industry!!! Our name- We came up with numbers Two One Zero instead of our names because when you walk into our doors it is a place to create your magic.

We would never try to own your craft/name. We are all on the same level and there to help each other grow, create and live our dreams out. Salon Two One Zero is not just a salon it is our home where our stylist’s dream careers can become a reality- where our guests Dream Hair can become a reality!! We have the most advanced/continued education as well as the best of the best mentors in our industry- we work 24/7 on our craft to make sure we create only the top trends in the world for our 210 Guests.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Oh my goodness, NO! And, if any new salon owner says it is they are definitely a unicorn. 😉 It has definitely been a wild road! But also such an amazing one! People hear about our stories and are always shocked by how we can do it all, like opening a salon during Covid-19- But we have honestly stayed extremely focused and in our own bubble- we haven’t compared our salon or business plan to others-which I think has been the magic behind our salon’s success because us three really beat to our own drum which while opening Salon Two One Zero you would be shocked by how many businessmen/accountants laughed and told us not to do this, “This is a horrible idea. You girls will fail just stay at your little salons.”

I don’t know how many times we have been told NO on every aspect of our plan but we kept pushing and going and now look at our Salon Two One Zero. We knew we made it when we sat down with Peter Mahoney, the President of Summit Salon, and he was happily shocked and ready to invest in us! At that moment, we knew this is just the beginning- even Today, with a full team of stylists and makeup artists, an apprentice program and a glittering list of starlets we still know there’s so much more we have/want to do and we cannot wait to share with you what we have next for Two One Zero!!!

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
We are known for our Dream Hair! We show women and men that they can all have that picture-perfect, high-end, fashion-forward look -while having it be a realistic investment. We take you along your beauty process by showing/educating you on all of the secrets to having the look of your dreams!

The newest trends we have created this year are our special color services GLOW and BRONDZED. It is a one of a kind technique that us, three created as soon as we opened the doors to all of our new 210 Girls.

At Two One Zero, we know it’s not just hair. For each person in our chair, we create a new canvas and give them their own show-stopping look! Because each appointment with your stylist should be life-changing. We put our hearts into your looks, we try to get to know our guests’ style and personality as much as possible because communication is key to creating the best look for YOU! Our goal is to always make sure everyone has a magical feeling when they leave us.

What do you like and dislike about the city?
We absolutely love the culture of our city! It brings so much inspiration to our industry and fashion!! And what we like least I would say used to be how old-fashioned our industry was but there’s a few of us here now that are changing things up for everyone!!
