What makes Natural Solutions a good choice for you? We are an all natural and organic retail boutique featuring bare Mineral cosmetics, as well as having a unique salon that features more natural alternatives in hair color, perm and nail services. Customers love our boutique and salon because we offer not only professional services such as haircut and style, updo's, manicure and pedicures, acrylic and gel nail enhancements, waxing, perms, hair color and make up application, but we have the retail products they enjoy! Our salon has stylists who specialize in specific areas such as master colorist, makeup artist, nails and styling. Natural Solutions also understands the needs of those who are sensitive to gluten, fragrances, dyes and more. We have gluten free cosmetics and skin care, vegan, unscented and dye free products. Free consultations are provided before any purchase or service if requested.
What are the most common jobs Natural Solutions does for their clients? The most common thing would be to provide clients as many choices going to the point of being to much. Since we have several stylists, we can provide the best one that fits the clients need. Our stylists all specialize in something, but they are professional stylists, so they put the same effort into other areas of services. We also provide choices in products. We aren't your typical salon or boutique. We know that women all have different needs such as seeking gluten free choices, issues with scents, needing basic haircuts to more sophisticated. We also have many brides come in, so we have to be able to provide bridal services and have a pleasant place to provide that service.
What are some recent accomplishments at Natural Solutions? We completed our salon in October 2012. We have 4 great stylists that in all have the combined experience of over 25 years. We have the only salon that features holistic, all natural and organic beauty products combined with professional product selections, including organic hair color services.
What do we wish customers knew about our profession? We'd want customers to know that we have made every effort to bring to our customers healthier alternative products for a reason. Jennifer Reed, owner of Natural Solutions has suffered from allergies that made it difficult to even go into a salon or body care store. She also has skin allergies to many ingredients. She's have taken the time to learn what the good ingredients are from what ingredients should be avoided and why, or found ways to avoid drastic compromises to the health when considering beauty needs and services. We work hard to provide PPD Free hair colors for customers who can't use traditional hair color products. We also understand sensitive scalp issues, so we have a large selection of alcohol free styling products. Our customers can ask for organic, all natural or even fragrance free products for their services too.
