Meet Hailey Coy, Be Inspired Salon‘s Bridal Coordinator!
What inspired your business name? Be Inspired Salon’s name came to our founder, Kati Whitledge in the middle of the night–along with the hook line, “be bold, be beautiful, be inspired salon”. Our mission is to empower you to believe in who you are and inspire you to be truly authentic on the inside and out.
How long have you been in business?
We opened Be Inspired Salon in 2010
Why did you choose to pursue your current profession?
I love that the beauty industry is always changing, yet one thing remains the same–building lasting relationships with people. It’s a privilege to be a part of just one in six industries that you’re able to touch people. The real joy comes when our guests feel amazing about themselves–as everyone should!
What sets your business apart?
There are four major distinctions that set us apart from the very crowded industry we’re in :) First, we are award-winning for bridal hair & makeup! It’s so amazing to be able to work with brides on what for most will be, the most important day of their lives. Second, we specialize in working with natural curly hairstyles. We receive specialty training from our very own in-house educator! This niche has helped us change the lives of many women & their children! Third, we are the only salon in greater Madison to have the majority of their stylists Certified Master Colorists with the Goldwell hair color line. We’ve spent a tremendous amount of time, energy and financial investments in order to become the very best at our craft. And finally, we offer an exclusive matching Meet Your Stylist matching survey on our website. So many new guests are unsure about who to see for their hair appointment at their first visit. And that’s why we offer this solution. Take our Meet Your Stylist survey to see who’s the best fit for you!
Describe your ideal client(s).
We love working with brides who appreciate the value of working with experts who are communicative and organized. Our ideal brides tend to also be this way. It’s about finding your “tribe” and loving them hard.
What is your most frequently asked question from engaged couples?
“How much does it cost?” Since we don’t provide bridal pricing on our site, we go over all of our package options with our brides during their face-to-face or virtual consultations. We often let brides who are concerned about budget that we are indeed a higher investment than most salons–yet, we are able to show them during our consultations that you absolutely get what you pay for!
What’s on your iPod, Pandora, etc. while you work?:
Our playlist is always on shuffle. We have eclectic taste, but definitely love to play Zedd, Alessia Cara, Dave Matthews Band, Adele, Tom Petty, 90s pop radio, and let’s not forget some big band!
What do you like to do when you’re not working?
I love being outside–when the weather permits. Anything from camping, hiking, kayaking, or going to outdoor concerts.
Who inspires you?
My parents inspire me. They’ve been married over 25 year and have shown me what it means to work hard, and what it means to put family first. I attribute my work ethic and loyalty in relationships to them.
Do you have a quote you live by?:
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” ~Maya Angelou
Is there anything else you’d like to add? :
I am so grateful to be a part of the best industry in the world, and I am hopeful for the opportunity to meet you soon.
