Summer Updates

Hi BriAry Family!

I’d like to personally say that I hope your summer is going swimmingly! 

Here at BriAry Hair Studio & Salon Suites we are overflowing with exciting announcements. 

We’d like to formally welcome Tosia of “Salon Tosia” to the BriAry Salon Suites family. You can find Tosia in Suite 2. 

Jeamy’s clients will notice that their favorite stylist has moved across the way into her very own Suite. Welcome “Salon Gi’A” in Suite 4 as of September 1st, 2019. This is an exciting step for Jeamy and her business so stop in to wish her the best. 

Have you used our online booking feature yet? We’ve upgraded our system to provide all of our clients with a smooth and simple experience. If you still prefer to call or make appointments in person, check with our management or front-of-house coordinator to get your information up to date in our upgraded system to ensure a quick, secure, and smooth booking and check-out process. Some of this information involves preferred payment methods. Your information, including any payment info, will always remain secure, encrypted, and only accessible by upper management. If you wish to update any payment preferences on file directly with management please let our front-of-house staff know and we will accommodate you. 

Click here to find out more and book your next appointment!

During your next visit we hope you notice a change in our environment. 


A few things to note:

We now ask that all client cell phones remain on silent or vibrate to allow a relaxing experience for our guests. If a client requires a space to make a phone call, have a conversation, or anything else that may otherwise be disruptive to patrons, we ask that they make use of our private lounge area on the lower level of the Studio. 


BriAry has always strived to make our client experience enjoyable and part of this is because of our policies and procedures that we practice and consistently revise to better suit the needs of our clientele. 


We would like to remind our guests that appointments running more than 15 minutes late could incur an automatic cancellation if we are unable to accommodate your services in the shortened time frame from a client’s tardiness. To avoid this scenario, please call as soon as possible and the staff at BriAry will do their very best to accommodate the situation. Part of this is an update with our system to ensure the next client’s visit is not negatively impacted and to ensure our staff can work in a peaceful and productive environment and pass that along to you, our guests. 


Other scenarios related to cancellations or the requirement of prepayment are as follows, at management discretion: 

  • $50 or 50% deposit will be required based on services

  • A service scheduled for more than 2 hours duration will require a 50% deposit. 

  • Scheduling 3 or more consecutive appointments 

  • New clients

  • Clients who have repeatedly cancelled or rescheduled (Full service fees may apply)

**If there is a 24hr+ cancellation on an appointment that required a deposit the deposit will be applied to your next visit with us. **


No call/No shows are subject to cancellation fees amounting to the investment of your scheduled services and a loss of a deposit at management’s discretion. This practice is typical with most professional offices like medical professions, tattoo parlors, spas, and countless other industries. A client’s failure to meet an appointment time will always significantly impact a stylist’s wages. For this reason, we have these policies in place and believe so strongly in them. It is the client’s responsibility to take note of our posted policies throughout the salon and across our media. These policies are important to us. 


Cancellation policies for individual Salon Suites can be found in person and online. 

For Sandra’s Policy:  Studio Noa


Lastly, 

We would like to extend a congratulations to Courtney in Chic Scissors Hair on the exciting transitions in her life and career. Courtney has recently welcomed a newborn baby into her family as well as receiving the honor of Newington’s “2019 Best of Newington Award” in the Hair Salon category. 

As always, if there are any concerns or questions - please give us a call or reach out! 




All the best wishes to you and your family!

March updates: Strengthening Community & Education

We've been busy.

This month has been an exciting one for everyone at BriAry Hair Studio
Read about our updates below and check out our social media feeds all weekend for the latest salon biography videos of our newest stylists

This past week alone we have participated in a women driven health and fitness event in Hartford, Connecticut, where stylists and our owners of BriAry were able to interact with women in the local community. Our stylists enjoyed braiding hair and touching up makeup between workouts and events and even heard that we were a favorite vendor. It was a special feeling to see so many women walking around with radiant smiles and a BriAry braid in their hair.

It was a special feeling to see so many women walking around with radiant smiles and a BriAry braid in their hair.

Stylists also participated in an-house education session with one of our main color lines, Scruples.  

We learned about any updates to our favorite products and our new stylists were able to get hands on experience with a Scruples educator working with the color line and Scruples products.

Education is a core value of BriAry stylists and we are so happy to be able to share that knowledge with you during your visit to the salon in the form of industry-leading experience.

Prom season is also right around the corner. If you haven't already, make sure to set up an appointment and/or consultation with our stylists this month to reserve a spot.

Construction is underway and our Salon Suites are nearing completion! This is such an exciting time for us and our family of stylists.

It's been an amazing journey watching these women grow into their careers and soon go off into a new journey of entrepreneurship alongside the BriAry Team.

We can't wait to give you a tour of these new spaces!

January Update

Reflecting + Planning For The Months Ahead

January is in full swing and while we all reflect on everything that happened in 2017, this year is already shaping up to be full of changes and new and exciting plans for the future. This year, as you may have seen, we are in the midst of a full undertaking of renovations at 2719 Berlin Turnpike.  If you haven't seen our new boutique suite in the BriAry building yet please stop in for a tour! Our Salon Suites are coming along quickly and we can not wait to get into the future expanded BriAry Hair Studio. These past few months have been exciting and seeing the renovation from across the walk makes us motivated for the future every day! 

This month we have been investing in growing our team of talent.  While some of our stylists will soon be going off to their own BriAry Salon Suites, it's time that we invite more members to the BriAry team.  This includes experienced stylists as well as apprentices or interns.  If you know anyone who is looking to join a team of creatives in a family-like environment an application can be found on our website. 

We have also recently revamped our website.  Take a moment to check it out and let us know what you think.  We rely on your feedback! Here is a recent video for one of our stylist's bios. 

Enjoy!

Happy Holidays to all of our clients!


We just wanted to take a moment this weekend and wish you all a happy holiday and a happy new year!  To ring in 2018 we want to remind you of a few promotions we have going on and also formally welcome a few new members of our team. 

Recently, we have welcomed Jaylynn (Left) and Ellen (Right) to our salon family!

Jaylynn is a recent graduate from the International Institute of Cosmetology, certified in application and maintenance of Balmain hair extensions, and has a passion for makeup application.  Jaylynn is a stylist assistant. 

Ellen has been in the industry for almost twenty years. After working in several salons in the local area and being an educator for popular haircare brands like LANZA and instructing cosmetology in local industry academies, we are excited to have a skilled stylist like Ellen join our team to help promote education on leading industry techniques to some of our newer stylists.  


Currently, we are offering 20% off your first service with Ellen in the months of January and February. 

 

SEASONAL PROMO

Jeamy and Rosalee will be offering a 15-for-15 promotion this holiday season.  Pre-book an appointment with a $15 deposit and receive 15% off that 2018 appointment!  This is a great offer for that "new year, new me" feeling we all get.  Your $15 will go towards your service fee.  Need to reschedule?  Not a problem - the $15 is redeemable for any future service, however, the 15% can not be carried forward.  

Everyone becomes busy around the end of the year with so much going on! Make sure your appointment is booked and taken care of before the new year creeps up on us.  

This offer is only valid through the end of February. 

We hope you all enjoy a safe and happy holiday weekend. 
Hope to see you all very soon!

Thanksgiving Newsletter

BRIARY

Hair. Beauty. Creativity.


0bb3cbf9-a75c-4757-a333-f1fa507535cf.jpg

Stay tuned for updated stylist, staff, and client photos in the weeks to come!
Here are our owners - Cristina and Talia. 


"To me, beauty and makeup and color is like the finishing touch on everything."  -Marc Jacobs

Hi Everyone,


First off, happy Thanksgiving! We want to kick off this holiday season by updating you with a few things going on around the salon. 

It may be obvious to you, but this is our first ever newsletter! What does that mean? We will send these out occasionally around holidays, to announce monthly promotions, or to provide exciting updates that you, our clientele, would care about.  We won't bug you with irrelevant spam because, trust us, we hate that too.  Please feel free to email us or let us know what you think of receiving these and any recommendations on what we could do to improve this experience for you. 

Incase you haven't heard, we have moved!  We recently started a new adventure of expanding the brand and business.  Find us at 2719 Berlin Turnpike, Newington, CT 06111.  This is just around the corner from the old location but we are updated, modern, and have a renewed drive to provide the top quality of service for you. This includes new education, new (soon to be introduced) members of our team, updated newsletters, social media, blog updates (and more!), and amenities that aim to put us ahead in this industry. 

If you follow our Instagram account you may notice we have been working on some new content!  Please stay tuned for updates to our website and social media where we will soon be posting new photos and videos of our stylists, staff, and clientele after appointments! Willing to participate and be photographed by our on-site photographer?  Just let your stylist know upon booking your next appointment! 

We are updating our Salon Experience page on our website.  Please note our cancellation policy, especially with the holidays approaching.  If you need to reschedule, please call a minimum of 24 hours prior to your appointment.  In the past we have been lenient since we take pride in being laid back and comfortable with our clients but with updates to our system we will be required to enforce a rebooking fee for clients who cancel or no-call-no-show more than 2 times.  If our stylists aren't provided sufficient time to fill a cancellation their income is affected.  Please keep this in mind this holiday season. 


SEASONAL PROMO

Everyone becomes busy around the end of the year with so much going on! Make sure your appointment is booked and taken care of before the new year creeps up on us.

We've Moved!

In 2005 we established BriAry Hair Studio to achieve our dreams of running our own salon.  There were many unknowns back then but we took a leap of faith and put everything into operating the best business we could.  What a difference a few years could make.  For over 10 years we called Berlin our home and developed a strong foundation of our company, family of stylists, and loyal clientele.  

Dreams can grow over time.

As of today, we’re moving our location to 2719 Berlin Turnpike in Newington, Connecticut.  Along with our dreams, BriAry Hair Studio is growing and we hope you come with us on this new adventure.  

2719 Berlin Turnpike

Newington, CT 06111

 

(In fact - we’re already here - thanks to a great crew of movers and the help of many members of our own team, families, and friends, we’ve seamlessly moved down the road into our new space!)

You’ll now see this address in our emails, on our website, and in all other communications.

Please be sure to update our address before your next appointment!

This journey has jogged our memories of wonderful times we have shared with you - our clients - since 2005.  If you have photos or memories to share from over the years, please respond with them to this post or at your next visit!

We’re still settling into our new home and have many changes that will be underway over the next year and we can’t wait for you to see them all. For now, here is a photo of our new building:

The best part of moving, growing, and making announcements like this is knowing all of it would only be possible because of you.  All of us at BriAry are so grateful for your continued trust and business!

 

See you soon!
