I am so proud of all of the girls at Sparkle. As one of the original owners who started the salon back in 2006, and are no longer involved, we never imagined it would be continued and live on once we moved on! Sparkle I'm sure, has obviously been through some re-imaginings lately, but what I love about these girls is that they continue to keep a very certain spirit alive and well, that the salon was born to have: Sparkle is NOT your typical salon. Sparkle is a place where real people live, work and play. These people just happen to be some of the most talented hair extension experts, nail techs, stylists and waxers around. This salon isn't supposed to be about ""Look at me, look at me! I'm the pretty stylist."" This salon was born to be a relaxed environment, for REAL women who work, live and know that a haircut is about making a client feel comfortable and welcomed...NOT just excepted by the majority. The salon knows acceptance is something you must find in yourself, and they are there to help you along your journey! Sparkle is a salon that participates in the environmental future, the community and LIFE. They are there to show you that, sure hair is important, but you don't HAVE to have a certain haircut, a certain ""look"" to feel good about being you. You just have to learn to be comfortable with yourself. This is not going to be a salon for everyone, there are many clients and personalities out there who enjoy the lack of talk, the everyday hired receptionist, the cold surroundings of just another Pearl District salon. However, if you are looking for an intimate, special, real and honest old school beauty parlor experience with an update, this will make you smile. That makes me smile, and hope that Sparkle will always continue to thrive, grow and live on, on it's own. Responsible Beauty.
