Creating Smiles

Hair Peace Salon: a small business with a big heart

By: Lisa Black

It takes a community to build a small business. We know you have many salons to choose from, so we strive to stay on the cutting edge and ensure that every client is treated like a pillar of the community. Without you – without our community – we couldn’t exist. That is why at Hair Peace Salon, we believe wholeheartedly in the gift of giving back. From continuing education to community participation, you will always find us at the top of the list.

A town without small businesses lacks local character. Whether we grew up here or landed here by a force of nature, we love it. Seriously, what’s not to love? Corpus Christi is a big city with small town charm – and we’ve got a beach! Our city’s character comes from our city’s characters: you, me and everyone in between.

Being a small business means we can focus on what our clients need rather than basing our growth strategies on huge nationwide campaigns that don’t always understand local needs. For example, instead of pushing Brand X Sparkles and Sass hairspray on you, we can show you what you really need, like Redken’s Control Addict 28, because we know Corpus Christi is the real “Windy City” and that’s what you need to keep that ‘do in check. We stock products that work best for our environment because we live in it.

One of the best things about being a small business is that we have the ability to give back and to see that impact play out right here in our backyard. We regularly support our small business colleagues with donations for their individual causes.

We aren’t afraid to get our hands dirty, either. We fear no pink mustache, as we readily donated our time to the Pink for Josie Mustache Campaign. We have supported “You Go Girl,” and we teamed up to raise money for our local chapter of the American Cancer Society with the Cancer Blows Campaign two years in a row.

Our faces can also be seen at many of your school and business events such as tinsel tying at Baker Middle School and Windsor Park Elementary. Last, but certainly not least, Hair Peace Salon routinely visits the Ronald McDonald house to donate haircuts to the families and children who are enduring tough times and may not have the time or the resources to visit a salon. It gives us great satisfaction to see our work creating smiles. To us, our job is not about making people beautiful, but rather, bringing your inner beauty to the surface so you can shine on!

When you support a small business, you are supporting your community; you are keeping your money local, and that is a big deal. We aspire to help keep the local charm in our wonderful city, and we hope you do, too. Thank you for the opportunity to be part of this wonderful community we all call home. Every time you spend a dollar at a small business such as Hair Peace Salon, you should give yourself a big ol’ pat on the back. Go ahead; you deserve it (mention this article for 15 percent off your next visit). And thank you – thank you very much.
