Welcome to The Beauty Saloon! I’m so glad you’re here. I’m Holly Samson Hall, a licensed cosmetologist, an artist, and a mama with a creative soul and a passion for the beauty industry. I believe that hairstylists, makeup artists, and other beauty professionals can be a powerful force for good by helping their clients see the best in themselves, and while you’re working hard to make the world a better, more beautiful place, I want to help YOU.

Having worked with manufacturers, distributors, salon owners, and booth renters, as well as having worked as a stylist myself, I understand the challenges of running a small, independent beauty business. As an art and design business owner and blogger, I have spent years learning what works when it comes to branding and small business marketing. I’ve loved history my entire life, and have worn vintage clothing and hairstyles for years. In fact, I went to beauty school specifically to learn classic techniques such as pincurling and fingerwaving.

Classic hairstyles and makeup looks are more popular than ever, and the professionals who can achieve them are in high demand. Clients are looking for you, and I want to help you make it easy to be found!

What will I find here?

To start with, you’ll find tips for branding yourself and your business, resources for perfecting your craft, vintage-inspired art and design goods, bits of beauty history, vintage salon decor ideas, out-of-the-box marketing tools, body positivity, kindness, and more. The “more” is up to you! I am here to help, so please tell me what you need when it comes to your vintage beauty business!
