To our Dearest Friends,
We have had a terrific time and unique opportunity serving you, our friends, over the last two years. It has been an honor and true joy. But like the seasons, every good thing must come to an end, and Salon Fixer is no exception. It is with full hearts that we will be closing our site indefinitely. We are not saddened, but rather looking with great expectancy to our future endeavors together.
We would like to take the time to thank Cory Couts for his vision, creative spirit and tenacity getting Salon Fixer off the ground, and wish him amazing success in his latest role as President and CEO of KPSS, Inc. We would also like to thank all of the Salons and Stylist for joining us on this wonderful journey without asking for anything in return. Lastly, a huge THANK YOU to you, our loyal fans and subscribers. It is because of you that we have remained passionate to provide the best service and content possible. We wish you tremendous success in your business - in every way!
“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.” - Steve Jobs
Your Friends at Salon Fixer
To our Dearest Friends,
Neeko, one of the owners of Salon Sessions in Pasadena, California and a mainstay hairdresser for the Hollywood elite and the music industry knew one thing: he did not want to be a hairdresser. In a gang and about to pay the price with the law, it was divine intervention that brought him into the salon.
Bambu Salon & Spa
Designed by Bernstein-Rein | Country: United States
“This boutique getaway focuses on personalized customer experiences, so overall branding and touchpoints create a refreshing, zen-like feel. Inspiration for the logo came from traditional seals used as signatures in Asian cultures. Packaging for the salon+spa incorporated clean lines, repeating patterns and fun usage of bamboo in unexpected places.”
A greaser-inspired Milanese salon you wouldn’t mind getting stuck in your hair
Named for a ’50s brand of pomade, Gum is a trio of hairstylists playing off the gravity-defying greaser hairstyles to come up with looks suited for the modern man. The salon, located in Milan’s fashionable Ticinese area, mixes the old-school aesthetic and vintage furnishings with quality cuts and clever ‘dos that go far beyond the rockabilly pompadour.
The stylists each focus on their individual talents—with Alice scheduling appointments, Stefano cutting hair and Monica applying color, Gum tailors each style for each client’s hair type. Through collaborations with photographers and make-up artists, Gum has steadily built a large presence in the fashion and music industries in the few years since it opened.
On a recent visit to Gum, I couldn’t have been more satisfied with the experience. A cozy atmosphere, no more than two customers at once, a welcome drink, wi-fi—not to mention dedicated time for choosing the right style and a head massage with perfumed balms—Gum provides an altogether deep, personal and flawless experience.
