By Jim Akans“We take pride in what we do for our customers,” statesJulie McCleave, owner and stylist at Wink Salon in Gaylord.“They absolutely come first. Our goal is to make the people who visit our salon look and feel beautiful. We believe every one of our customers should get everything they are looking for in a salon visit…and more!”McCleav knows the salon business. After earning a degreefrom Fenton Cosmetology School several years ago, she wenton to work for Flaunt Salon in the Fenton area for 15 yearsbefore she pursued her dream of opening her own establish-ment.“My passion is helping to make people look and feel theirbest,” she relates, “and my dream was to open my ownsalon.”That dream became a reality when she launched her ownbusiness in Gaylord back in September of 2010, and steppedup to a whole new level when she relocated that business tothe Alpine Plaza (a few doors down from the Secretary of State office) in September 2011. The new Wink Salon has animpressive and welcoming presentation, with stylish décoraccents exquisitely complementing the open design, creating a professional yet soothing setting. Wink Salon offers a full array of services. Those includevirtually all type of hair services such as styling, color, perms,straightening and even eyelashes. Waxing services are alsoavailable, and nail services are coming soon.“We are also starting a monthly “meet & greet” event onthe first Wednesday evening of every month,” notesMcCleave. “It is an opportunity for people to stop by andcheck out our salon, meet our stylists, learn about hair caretips and industry trends, and enjoy snacks and beverages ina very informal social setting.” Wink Salon stylists Lauren K. Bunker and Gwendolyn Ford,and apprentice Nicole Burroughs, share McCleave’s passionfor excellence in customer service. The stylists are all profes-sionally trained cosmetologists and each participates inongoing industry education.“Everyone who works here has a passion for what we do,”affirms McCleave. “Customer service is always number one with us. We offer a comfortable, stylish atmosphere wherepeople can feel at ease, and leave feeling that their experi-ence at Wink Salon was the best part of their day. Wink Salon is located inside the Alpine Plaza across fromGlen’s Market in Gaylord.
