RAW SALON & SPA
RAW is an acronym representing a concept that is very near and dear to Andrea’s heart. In 2008 Andrea attended a 3-day, business program geared toward teaching attendees how to manage or own a salon and spa business. It had two main objectives: ‘Ready’ being the financial and technical end of the education mission, and ‘Willing’ being the emotional and professional strength to manage, coach and mentor employees. After this extremely intense 3-day course, Andrea knew her passion was to open her own salon. She knew she had the tools and knowledge to progress forward with her career. Ever since 2009, Andrea has progressively moved towards her dream, step by step. She opened RAW Salon in 2009, a quaint studio salon, also located in Burlington. Three years later she got the call that her dream space was coming available she had some big decisions to make whether or not to grow space. Remembering that ‘Ready And Willing’ was now ingrained in her blood, she knew she had to accept the offer and to move forward with her dream. ‘Ready And Willing’ is a part of Andrea’s every day spirituality. She is insistent on the name being spelled correctly, RAW Salon and Spa, because every time she sees it, types it, or thinks of it, she knows she has what she needs, not only professionally but emotionally and spiritually.
RAW Salon and Spa is also committed to protecting the Earth and lowering its footprint. Davines was chosen as the primary hair care and color product line for its parallel beliefs, packaging, and manufacturing. Davines is based out of Parma, Italy and is distributed by Salon Only Sales (SOS), in the United States. RAW also carries Sacred Nature, by Comfort Zone, as one of our skincare lines because of is organic background. We not only want the best products for our guests, but the best products for our Earth.
