Halo Studio for Hair exceeds client satisfaction

April 2016: Halo Studio for Hair opened in January 2013 after many years of dreaming and planning. Business partners Trina Martin and Johnna Melito both knew from an early age that they wanted to be hair stylists. They also shared a vision for opening their own salon someday, which would have a welcoming environment for both guests and staff. Johnna’s husband, Michael Melito, supported their dream, and with his passion for small business, formed their partnership Halo.

“I have worked as a stylist for twelve years, and since day one, I knew that I had a passion for this industry” said Trina. “Johnna and I pride ourselves in being the best stylists that we can be for our guests. We wanted to open a salon where our stylists worked together as a team and are able to express their talents through their work in a professional atmosphere. As a team, we not only work together but become friends for life. The same goes for our clients, they become more than just our customers. Throughout the years, they’ve basically become extended family.”
Johnna added, “The years that Trina and I have spent working together prior to opening Halo, has given us valuable experience as stylists. Also, a perspective of how we would operate our own business someday. We have put together an amazing team of stylists, chosen for their talent and personalities. Our team believes that going to a salon should be an enjoyable, exciting time for all. Our clients love coming here because they know they will receive the attention that they deserve, creative suggestions and wonderful customer service in a comfortable setting.”
