What it means to be named to the Salon Today 200
Salon M2 is proud to have been included in the prestigious Salon Today 200 list for three years in a row! The Salon Today 200 is an awards competition that recognizes and celebrates the best and brightest salon owners for their managerial and leadership skills.
This year, Salon Today is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the ST200. The magazine originally launched the awards in order to:
- Honor the business side of professional beauty and celebrate our innovative salon and spa owners and managers.
- Develop a system for measuring business success in the salon and spa world and develop benchmarks that could inspire all owners and managers.
- Create a forum where owners and managers could support one another and share valuable business-building advice.
A lot has happened since the first 200 honorees were announced:
A Spa Explosion: Twenty years ago, integrating a day spa was a big growth strategy for many salons. In 1999, 56% considered themselves to be both a salon and day spa. In 2017, that status is almost a given, with 97% reporting their status as a salon and day spa.
Technology Changes the Game: While nine out of 10 salons reported they were automated in 1999, only 45 percent had access to email. It was rare for a salon to have a website at the time, so the question wasn’t even asked. Today, all of the Top 200 are automated, use salon management software in the running of their businesses, and have a website.
