On Leap Day of this year, I met with Ilze Meija Ham, a fellow entrepreneur who wanted to open her own children's salon and boutique. She had an incredible vision of using toxic-free products in a streamlined, family friendly environment. I'm thrilled to say that just over a week ago, her dream and vision came to life when she opened the doors of zoey + joey. Not only did she exceed all my expectations in terms of aesthetics, families have been singing her praises since the day she opened her doors. With carefully chosen retail products including Keeki Pure & Simple and Original Sprout (she's the only carrier of the latter in the area), a place for moms and dads to make their own coffee and relax and a slide to keep the kids occupied for hours, Ilze has really set her business apart from other children's hair places. You can book your own appointments and haircuts range from just $15 up to $25. (That's a steal for an adult cut with full shampoo, conditioner, cut, style, blow dry)!
We were really lucky to be a part of her marketing, photography and graphic design processes. Ilze always made decisions quickly and she had a very concise idea of how she wanted to be seen in the community. For everyone out there with an idea - go for it! See what someone with determination can do in exactly 9 months (zoey + joey opened its doors on December 1st). Here are a few snapshot highlights of our work.
Congratulations to Ilze and her entire team! We couldn't be happier for you.
