Introducing...Hoshall’s Salon and Spa
Photo by Dante Fontana
Describe your business. Did you find it or did it find you?
The hair bug bit me in 1964, and I have been in business at the top of my craft ever since. I am lucky because I have a passion and love for my business.
What was your first job and what did you learn from that experience?
A cable splicer at Western Electric. I learned to never be late because it puts somebody else in charge.
How are you involved with both community and your customer?
We participate in local charity events to support breast cancer research, autism, Make-A-Wish Foundation, and March of Dimes. We hold yearly events, such as cut-a-thons, to help out those in need.
Why is your staff the best in the business?
Because of their passion for their craft, and Hoshall’s world-class education. We have sent hairdressers to Paris, New York, Florida, Atlanta, Los Angeles and San Francisco to further their skills as hairdressers.
What life accomplishments are you most proud of and why?
Enjoying success in my profession for 45 years.
Where do you go when the going gets tough?
To the ocean.
What is your hidden talent?
Cooking – skillfully putting different tastes and textures together.
Where do you and your family go locally to have fun?
To the movies and the golf course.
What is your favorite childhood memory?
Seventh grade graduation. I wore my first suit. My mother bought it at a used clothing store for $5 and I wore it with red suspenders.
If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?
Jesus Christ, to be His friend; and my daughter Kim who died of cancer, because I miss her very much.
If you could be any other profession what would it be?
And finally, customer service is…?
Exceeding expectations. Doing ordinary things in an extraordinary fashion!
