Amanda Hair has always had a love for beauty and fashion. That’s what led her to a career in retail management and eventually saw her working her way to the top of the Bob Steele brand. Now, with 20 years under her belt, Amanda Hair has made connections and friendships that fuel her to continue to grow and provide more opportunities for others to have a rewarding career doing what they love. It’s what makes Bob Steele more than a salon, but also a family that cares for their community and those within it.
What recommendations do you have for someone looking to take 10 years off their age?
Let go of a dated hairstyle. Our stylists know that change can be hard, and your appearance is the first thing that people see, so we are trained to shift you gradually into a new look. It could be as simple as trying a “money piece” (small face-framing highlights) first to see if you like the look of dimension in your hair color or a subtle shift in the shape of your cut.
What is your favorite new product?
We are a certified Bellami Extension provider, offering the highest-quality extensions with a wide range of texture patterns and applications that are either permanent or temporary. We provide consultations to color match and shape the extensions to fit your style, ensuring we provide you with the right product based on your needs.
What is one important piece of hair advice you can share with our readers?
Selecting the right shampoo, conditioner and styling aids is a must. A unique combination should be recommended for you to maintain shine and the proper amount of body without frizz. Keep travel sizes of your favorite products on hand for last-minute getaways!
What’s something you’re most proud of your team for?
We are active with many industry groups and organizations and our favorite is the 2TO10 Project, of which I’m a founding member and former chair. This organization is composed of salons that have multiple locations and are market leaders in their area. We get together yearly to share best practices and process issues relevant to the industry to help us all build stronger environments for our teams to flourish.
