Ver Hair Salon’s New ’Do
The goal of the new location is to have a different approach than other salons, with an increased focus on education.
As of July 28, Bobbie Baker officially re-opened a brand spankin’ new version of her beloved hair salon, VER Hair Salon (403 Water St., Eau Claire), with the help of three awesome, newly hired ladies.
“I count my blessings every morning,” Baker said. VER Hair Salon was created with the mission of “spreading kindness in not only the hair world, but also our community and the world as a whole,” according to their website. And it’s a mission Baker hopes people feel right when they walk through their doors.
The goal of the new location is to have a different approach than other salons, with an increased focus on education – allowing stylists to learn more about their craft and follow their passions with more support.
“It’s been really rewarding,” Baker said. There’s a new community space in the back of their salon, called the Milliner Conservatory – or “MC” for short – where folks can rent out space for anything you can think of: photographers, pop-up shops, and education training for staff (www.themilliner.space).
There’s a new guest lounge with socially distant, modern acrylic chairs and a leather sofa. And VER Hair Salon is proud to be an eco salon, meaning 85% of their waste is recycled, and they use eco-head sprayer nozzles to eliminate water waste by up to 65%.
“It has been a ride of a lifetime, to say the least,” Baker said. Learn more at verstylists.com.
