With busy work and family schedules, it is often hard to find the time to pamper ourselves. Luckily, the owners of Phenix Salon Suites in Suwanee offer a one-stop beauty shop to help make pampering ourselves a little easier.
Located in the Suwanee Jubilee shopping center (with two additional locations in Buford and Johns Creek), the private suites offer clients the opportunity to get their hair and nails done, enjoy a relaxing massage, and even get their teeth whitened all in one location.
The concept of Phenix Salon Suites was created by hair stylist Gina Rivera, and allows for beauty professionals to own and run their own businesses without the overhead costs of a large retail space. Each of the 32 suites at Phenix are equipped with the necessary equipment to operate a successful salon, including their own thermostat, a salon coordinator, 24-hour keyless entry, and all-inclusive rental fees.
Professionals who have a suite at Phenix have the opportunity to customize their own suites in a relaxing and upscale environment. “We allow our Salonists to add anything from paint colors and wall paper to additional lightning in their suites,” says managing partner Karen Perry, “we want them to truly feel like it is their own.”
Phenix provides a unique experience for both its salon professionals and its clients, in which everyone gets to enjoy their own private suite experience. According to Karen, “Our professionals get a lot of compliments from clients who say they had no idea a concept like this exists,” she says. “Private suites provide one-on-one communication that helps to develop a relationship between our professionals and their clients without the feeling of being on display.”
The salon’s unique atmosphere also allows everyone to have the chance to network with other professionals who may offer different services at the salon.
Professionals at the salon often offer packages for holidays or special events in which a massage therapist, aesthetician, and stylist all join together to provide a mini spa day. For example, with Mother’s Day right around the corner, you can create a package and treat the special mom in your life to one or more of the services offered at Phenix, without the hassle of trying to piece something together yourself.
Networking and creating packages not only help our professionals at the salon,” Karen says, “but it also allows husbands to say, ‘I can just buy this package and treat my wife and I don’t have to organize anything.’”
