A Salon For All
THE BEAUTY OF DIVERSITY AND UNITY
We are more than just a salon…we are a place that will allow you to embrace your individual beauty—free of judgement. We are a lifestyle and community destination. Diversity is the core of our business. It’s the reason we’ve built an environment that’s open to everyone.
We treat our clients like family.
Both Denise and Chase have had a strong bond with their local community since they day they opened the salon and continue to have a strong social impact based on the mission statement around ‘inclusion and belonging.’
Our stylists are specialized and skilled to work with your unique hair type, texture, and curl pattern. We hire the best and require they complete DiverseStyle’s advanced training and certification program.
DiverseStyle Salon Certification Program
At DiverseStyle Salon we consider the opportunity to service you or your family on a hair journey very important. We certainly realize that a person’s hair can shape their self-value and we want you to know how much it means to us as well.
Because of that, we focus on ensuring that you will receive the best service possible. On our side of the hair brush—that starts with training, education and pride –which is why we have developed an extensive certification program that we feel sets us apart from other salons.
Our DS education program starts from the ground up and we work on providing a basis of infrastructure no matter the years of experience a new hire has or the size of their book–they have to pass our certification program–which is much easier than getting a CPA license or graduating within an engineering degree.

The program is sectioned in 4-5 different sequenced phases and requires a core set of hours completed at each phase along with a test at the end of each phase. Below we provide a ‘snapshot’ of each phase but more details can be provided upon request.
Knowing our business and appreciating DS clients starts the minute a customer steps through the door and there is no better place for a new hire to start. New hires start their training by working the front desk— where they will learn the DiverseStyle’s approach to customer service. where they will greet guests of the salon and providing the customer experience of DiverseStyle. Greeting customers, giving salon tours, describing and recommending products and assisting the salon staff provides them with an appreciation for everything that makes DiverseStyle unique.
Upon completion of the customer service experience the new talent stylists make their way into assisting and apprenticing the seasoned stylists . Numerous certifications such as hair color, smoothing treatments, silk pressing and braiding are done at this time.
With over 30 + hours of advanced training, shadowing our master stylist, doing apprentice styling and online certifications; the DiverseStyle team player is now ready to consult, create and style a specific set of clients within the salon.
At this level, stylists will be working on the floor and building their book, and working toward mastering all level of techniques on each type of hair length, density and curl pattern. This will apply to color applications, various hair techniques, advanced cutting and out of the box styling methods. Online certification is required of the various retail product lines that we carry so they are able to prescribe and recommend the highest quality products for the guests hair care needs.
At this level, stylists will have a full book of clients and confident in all hair texture styling, will understand the power of social media marketing, will have the ability to teach product/training classes, capable of mentoring new stylists and performing first level managerial duties.
