Best Beauty Salon - Tim Smith Salon
The Tim Smith Salon has been chosen as the 2019 Florence’s Finest Beauty Salon by readers of The New Journal.
Smith opened his salon, located at 268 West Evans St., in 2013. He had previously owned two other salons in Florence, but wanted to be part of the downtown revitalization.
Sarah Young serves as the salon’s second stylist.
“We offer all hair services, including color, cuts and styles, as well as waxing,” said Smith. “We specialize in hair and makeup for weddings and other special occasions and provide these services in the salon or on-site at the event. We also sell a wide range of hair products by Oribe and R & Co., and use color products by Goldwell, Redkin, Paul Mitchell, and Pulp Riot.”
Smith said that through education and communication, he hopes to keep the salon at its best.
“We strive very hard to keep ourselves and our products second to none,” he said.
Flexibility of schedule and creative control are two aspects of operating his own business that keep Smith excited and passionate about his job.
As for the future, Smith says the sky is the limit.
“We are always looking for good stylists, and if the work load demands it possibly a full-time receptionist.
