We hope you have enjoyed our interview series. We have learned so much about our bosses
through this process.
It takes special people to own a business for this long.
Stay tuned for our post later this week about the inside scoop on Michauds.
Enjoy learning more about Cheri. Here's part 2 of A Rose Between Two Thorns!
C+L - Why only one location?
C - We can't replicate that Michauds quality.
C+L - Did you ever think 20 years was possible?
C- I don't really think of it like that. I take everything day by day,
C+L - What do you see happening to Michauds when you all retire? And do you have hopes of your daughter or nieces and nephews taking over?
C- I don't see myself retiring. If our children ever decided they wanted to come in to the industry, they would have to earn it.
C+L - You take are of the salon Facebook account, how do you feel about Michauds being involved in social media?
C - I love it. I think its a great way to get the word out and showcase our work. It is more intimate and emotional than a website. I love that we've expanded to Instagram, Pinterest and our blog.
C+L - What do you look for in a potential employee?
C- Enthusiasm, skill and a team player.
C+L - What does owning a business in Cloverdale mean to you?
C - I love this community. I grew up here. I have so many wonderful memories associated with this town. Our business was always going to be in Cloverdale.
C+L - What made you decide to be a Green Circle Salon?
C - Dean.
C+L - Why are you as an owner still working?
C- Because I love what I do. Stylist first, owner second.
C+L - What are the craziest memories?
C - Our staff get togethers are pretty fun. Once we did have a water fight in the sink area of the salon. That was pretty crazy and fun... until we had to clean it up.
C+L - Did you have any hair accidents growing up?
C - Yes! When I was about 13, I had box coloured my hair then went to a salon for a perm and all my hair fell out.
C+L - How does being the only female owner of Michauds make you feel?
C - I love what I do. It makes me proud to show my daughter that girls can be whatever they wanna be. I have always wanted to be a hairdresser and I followed my path. I wanna encourage my female staff to do the same and provide for themselves. That's important to me.
