Investing In Our People

At The Studio Aveda in Hattiesburg, MS, we’re dedicated to our team—we want them to continuously grow and evolve their craft behind the chair and beyond. That’s why every year our owner, Lisa Cochran, brings the crew to Serious Business, an industry-focused conference dedicated to the development of self, leadership, and business practices within the salon industry.  And for The Studio fam, it’s not only about improving our technical skills but also our relational and personal development.

“Many salon owners worry about investing in their team and then losing a member,” says Lisa, “but I encourage owners to shift their thinking to: ‘What if I don’t invest and they stay?’.”

Just as we support every one of our guests at The Studio, we also strive to support our team members and help them reach their full potential. It’s this very team-based mentality that helped us win our Salon Today Top 200 Award for Retention and Referral, which celebrates a salon’s ability to attract new guests and keep them returning. Salon Today is the salon industry’s leading business magazine and honors 200 salons across North America every year for innovative practices in several categories.

“It is such an honor to be in the company of business leaders that I have so much respect for,” says Lisa, “but what I really love is to see how it honors my team for all their hard work. We’ve worked so hard for our brand and I want the world to know how great every member of the team is.”
