Norwalk, CT - Shear Genius Salon has some exciting news to share: the salon is celebrating their 10-year anniversary during the month of February 2019. Being in business for a decade is no small accomplishment, and the Sher Genius team wants to share their enthusiasm and appreciation with the Norwalk community. To do so, the salon will be hosting a chic anniversary party on March 2nd, 2019 from 6:00 to 8:00 P.M., complete with cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and raffles to win products and services. The first 10 to arrive will receive a free gift courtesy of Shear Genius.
"I opened Shear Genius Salon at the start of the recession in 2008. Although it was a challenging time to start a business, I felt it was the right time for me," said Brooke Capriotti, the salon's owner. "Having already been in the area for 5 years, I received a great deal of support from my existing clientele. For that reason, my focus has always been on giving back to the community that has given so much to me."
That community focus has led to Shear Genius' participation in Relay for Life as well as holding fundraisers for breast cancer research. The salon is also turning their 10-year anniversary into an opportunity to give back. Everyone who brings in a non-perishable food item during the month of February will receive 10% off of a service. As a way of showing gratitude for their good fortune, Shear Genius will donate these items to Person to Person in Norwalk, CT, a community organization providing emergency assistance for basic needs as well as other support to individuals and families as they move toward financial stability.
In addition to giving back, Capriotti and her team have also committed to providing top-notch service to every client who walks through the door. Shear Genius offers the newest and best services and treatments and receives consistently great reviews. Janet Crystal who followed Brooke from her previous position commented, "Brooke followed her heart and her dream 10 years ago and I followed right along with her. Her dedication to her craft and her service to her clientele are what are most important to her. That's what is reflected in her Shear Genius Salon and why I keep returning month after month and year after year."
Another dedicated client, Michelle Klink, had this to say about the salon: "I have been a devoted client of Brooke's and Shear Genius for over 7 years. I get a Deva Cut for my curls and as well as color to cover my grey. I often get compliments from friends and sometimes even strangers asking about my healthy beautiful hair. I tell them about Brooke working her magic with her many different bowls of color that cover my greys subtly and naturally. The entire staff, from Jennifer at reception to Gloria at the sink, as well as the other stylists, are very warm, friendly and supportive. It feels like a family or friendly group gathering when I am there."
It's not only Shear Genius Salon clients who think the world of Brooke and her stylists. In both 2013 and 2014, the salon received the Best of Norwalk Award. For the past five years, Shear Genius has also received the Spectrum Award and earned a rating of 5 out of 5 stars from City Beat News, an award given to businesses who have displayed excellence in customer service in their business and industry.
Capriotti went on to say, "We are extremely grateful for what we've been able to accomplish over the last decade, and we look forward to serving our community for the next 10 years and beyond."
