We find ourselves abundantly grateful as we reflect on 2022 and look forward to the holiday season. This year our amazing brand partners have provided challenging education so that we could grow our craft and find new inspiration for our guests. We are thankful for our team – our veteran staff who have served our guests for many years and the stellar new talent who joined us in 2022. We are always delighted to have such wonderful guests and the support of the greater south metro community. You cheer us on, and the loyalty you have for all of us here at Cole’s Salon is something for which we can truly be grateful!
Here’s what our staff had to say about what they’re thankful for this year.
Family – Both Chosen and of Origin
I am beyond thankful for my family and also for the family I have at Cole’s. The amazing clients I have and the amazing people I work with, day in and day out. Family is everything, and family doesn’t always mean by blood! – Kelsey, Designer, Apple Valley
I am so thankful for my family, furry and human, our health, having an amazing job I love, clients that are now family, a roof over our heads, and the best friends ever! – Julie, Designer and Assistant Manager, Burnsville @julesnorstedt
I am thankful for the blessing of my daughter as well as the unending support of my husband. My support system at home allows me to be fully present at work and give my best each day. – Becca FIT Corporate Manager, Burnsville
I’m so very thankful for my health! It was one of my personal goals for 2022, and I’ve made sure with my schedule change to be able to focus on some me time. This included a set time three to four times a week workout to stay consistent, just like an appointment! I’ve found more strength and balance, which helps me focus better at work when I’m there to take care of my guests. This is definitely a habit I will continue! – Kelly, Esthetician, Apple Valley
