Saylon 7

Saylon 7

Sabrina Spiegel-Kohrs has been a hair stylist for 13 years, but recently opened her own salon, Saylon 7, in October 2011. Though she says she almost didn't finish beauty school, once she got her start, she fell in love with hairstyling and has worked at six different salons before deciding to own her own.

Spiegel-Kohrs has always been known to do dreadlocks, but once she started working at salons she learned more skills like extensions, manicures and pedicures and ethnic hairstyling-- anything to keep her day busy and full. She loves being able to offer diversity and an atmosphere of uniqueness to her business. The options are endless, which is what she hopes will attract the clientele she so loves to serve. She claims she never knew owning her own salon would be the dream, but that others saw it in her, and since its inception it's grown a great deal and so far she's enjoying the exposure.

In her travels, Spiegel-Kohrs has seen a variety of salons and hairstylists, and has learned more about styling and what salons have to offer. She frequents hair shows and workshops to always learn and show new things to her clients and fellow stylists. She enjoys being her own boss as much as she enjoys styling.  Working with her hands and being creative are just some of the perks she gets as frontrunner; Spiegel-Kohrs also enjoys getting to teach others about "the way [hair] moves and that hair doesn't have to be high maintenance and difficult to look good."

Attracting a different kind of people is what drives Spiegel-Kohrs to always be unique. The alternative crowd, the people that feel they have to go to a big city to get their hair done-- these are the people Spiegel-Kohrs loves styling the most. She serves a variety of clients as it is, but being able to offer more creativity to Eau Claire and let people come to her salon instead of feeling the need to venture elsewhere is exactly what she strives for. The "7" in Saylon 7 represents uniqueness, intuitive thinking, magical concepts and different things in general that encompass all aspects of the salon itself. Spiegel-Kohrs states that they "like to call themselves 'hair doctors' and not just hairdressers." She likes adding that little extra spark to the downtown area, hoping to style all types of people and embark her wisdom to as many as possible.

Consulting the Western Dairyland Business Center is what made starting her business "easy because it was overwhelming at first," Spiegel-Kohrs said. She wasn't sure if she would be able to do it financially, but once she saw the numbers put in order, she felt confident and much more at ease about getting everything started.

Beyond contributing to Eau Claire with her unique hairstyling, Spiegel-Kohrs also hosts monthly art shows at Saylon 7 with her husband. The salon always displays local artwork for sale, and once a month they host an event featuring local artists, food and drink and an overall friendly atmosphere. "It's fun to do other things for people sometimes," said Spiegel-Kohrs.
