ONYX SALON PROFILE
GOOD COMMUNICATION AND A POSITIVE TEAM
ENVIRONMENT MAKES ONE GREAT SALON
In 2002, Onyx Salon opened in Sherman Oaks with 4
partners, Jody Vandagriff, John Buhek, Frances Knorr
and Dana Treloggen, all with the same philosophy - to
provide a low key, high-end salon. Through the years,
they have created a family dynamic and recognize that they
have shared a big piece of their lives together. That feeling
of lifelong friendship extends from the owners, to the staff,
to many clients who have been coming to the salon since
Now, ten years later, they are still working together and
experiencing the benefits that have come from their hard
work, discipline and collaborative, family environment. Owner
Jody Vandagriff attributes their long-standing success to
their ability to communicate well with one another. "The
key is that we all work well together as a team. If there
is ever a problem we can talk it out." This is an
exceptionally rare and special quality that each of
the four owners values and remains committed to.
The salon also places a strong emphasis on education for the team. They provide an ongoing Associates Program for stylists directly out of cosmetology school, which teaches key skills to be successful in a salon. The program covers lessons in selling retail, adding on services, marketing oneself, growing an individual business and setting a high standard of excellence within the team.
Onyx Salon also maintains a Pay It Forward philosophy with a calendar full of community fundraisers. For the holidays they donated to a church and they are currently working on a fundraiser for a charitable organization called Born This Way. The organization, started by Lady Gaga, supports programs aimed at bullying victims to increase self-confidence and career development with the ultimate goal of fostering a culture filled with kids willing to stand up and protect others being mistreated.
With a feeling of deep gratitude, the salon recognizes that they are exceptional having just been nominated as Best Women's Hair Salon on the Boulevard.
