Micki and David Stirsman first opened the doors of Salon 01 on April 16, 1996 in a 1,400 square foot strip center space in Meridian Village Plaza (at 136th & Meridian) with a staff of 6 stylists. They redeveloped the current building location and moved into the current space in September of 2007 and now employ over 40 skilled stylists, estheticians, massage therapists, nail technicians and support staff. Salon 01 is a nationally recognized Intercoiffure salon serving the entire Central Indiana area.
Salon 01 specializes in hair, skin, nail, massage, and barbering services. Salon 01 is also fully equipped with specialized hair and skincare retail products, and a full boutique stocked with the latest in choice fashion trends, accessories and home goods. An experienced staff strives to help create the best overall image for each guest from head to toe.
Salon 01 now has a fully separated men’s department space with a growing male clientele that currently makes up 20% of its business. Remaining on the cutting edge of men’s hair and skincare trends differentiates Salon 01 within the salon industry. The salon is proud of its original promotional tag line in promotional use since the beginning: The One Salon for Men and Women!!
Salon 01 utilizes a unique team-based pay compensation model, believing that a team-oriented atmosphere should be the core of its business systems to facilitate the most positive environment for both staff and guests. This business model has aided in the stability, longevity and continuing growth of Salon 01. It has now grown into one of the largest salons in the State of Indiana.
The systems and beliefs at Salon 01 are completely guest-centric. Working as an organized team, employees are best positioned to offer a seamless guest experience for each salon visitor. As part of this team-based approach, Salon 01 encourages all guests to try using more than just one of its talented stylists or technicians…based on the schedule and needs of the guest, not the availability of the service provider alone. This team-sharing atmosphere creates a noticeably different energy within the salon.
Salon 01 takes pride in making ongoing community support a priority. They are the VIP sponsor of both the Carmel Marathon, and The Center for the Performing Arts Songbook Academy, and regularly donate to numerous school and non-profit fundraisers. Management estimates that over $300,000 has been donated to various local sports team sponsorships, community events, and non-profit activities over the 20 year existence of the salon.
Micki and David Stirsman and the entire salon staff wish to thank all those who have supported us in the past, and invite everyone to come in again to experience our team-oriented atmosphere, beautiful space and world-class customer service!
