Bothell’s Elle Marie Hair Studio, owned by Colleen Buck, Lorry Green and Jody Bossert, was recently named to the Salon Today 200 by Salon Today magazine, a top business publication for salon and spa owners.

The magazine’s 13th annual Salon Today 200 issue profiled the selected salons in its January 2010 issue. The 200 salons were selected for their best business practices from applications submitted by Salon Today readers, who represent the 25,000 top-producing salons and spas in the country.

The magazine honored applicants in 11 different best practice categories, including compensation and benefits, recruitment training, customer service, retention and reward programs, advanced education, marketing, technology, environmental sustainability, retail programs, inventory control and sales growth. Elle Marie Hair Studio was honored in both the growth (PDF) and marketing (PDF) categories.

“Having opened our doors in August of 2006, this was our first year of eligibility so we elected to test the waters of the competition by submitting applications in the two categories we felt most confident in,” says Bossert. “We’re absolutely thrilled to have made the list in both marketing and, even more significantly, the growth category given the state of the economy.”

To celebrate the achievement, Elle Marie invites the public to attend its second annual Sip ‘n Snip event titled “Love is in the Hair!” The event takes place from 7-9 p.m. March 5 and will feature food, wine and prizes, as well as promotions on the Chi Transformation System for hair straightening, the Affirm Professional Conditioning Relaxer System, and So. Cap. USA hair extensions.

Elle Marie Hair Studio is located at 17917 Bothell-Everett Highway, suite 102, Bothell.
