Trisha Jordan and Shanda Baker, owners of Element 54 Salon in Lutz, have a grand vision for their new business.
“We want to give our customers a whole new hair care experience,” said Shanda. “We also want to create an enjoyable atmosphere for our stylists to keep their passion strong for hair care.”
Trisha has worked 10 years in the beauty industry and Shanda is a Level 5 stylist with nine years of experience.
Element 54 is a full-service salon with separate areas set up specifically for each type of service: cuts, colors, highlights, textures, manicures, pedicures and waxing. A blow-dry bar lets customers get their hair styled for special occasions and romantic nights out.
For men, barber Ray Johnson gives haircuts, shaves and beard and mustache trims with a steamed towel application. Additional services for men include manicures, pedicures and waxing (eyebrows, chest and back).
“Our stylists have from one and 10 years of experience,” says Trisha. “We can accommodate any beauty budget with our range of staff experience. All stylists do color and cuts and some have specializations in extensions and curly hair.”
New stylists begin as assistants washing hair and mixing colors. This allows them to comfortably grow into their profession while gaining firsthand experience with every aspect of the salon, all under the close supervision of more experienced stylists.
Trisha and Shanda provide in-house training and actively encourage their stylists to take advantage of outside education to keep up with new styles, methods and products.
“Training is so important that we offered in-house training sessions before we even opened our doors,” said Trisha. “Our system of training makes for an easy transition when new stylists go on the floor to work on their own.”
Element 54 Salon provides over-the-top service with top-of-the-line products, including Redken, Pureology and Paul Mitchell. Guests enjoy a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and are offered snacks, soft drinks, wine and cold beer.
Appointments are encouraged to ensure each customer gets the best stylist for their needs.
Element 54 Salon invites local residents to its grand opening celebration on Sunday, Aug. 4 from 1 to 4 pm. There will be many prizes and gift certificates, thanks to the generosity of a number of local businesses.
The salon is conveniently located on the south side of State Road 54 between Land O’ Lakes Boulevard and Collier Parkway at 21776 State Road 54 in Lutz in the Osprey Cove Professional Center.
