Welcome, and thank you so much for choosing Hairstylist Jessi Ely for your haircare needs. I'm super excited to meet you! I'll ask you to begin by filling out a New Guest Intake Form which will help me get to know you a bit better, and then come right back here to continue the experience and get yourself booked!
Sweet! Moving right along...
You've already introduced yourself virtually, (thanks for that) so the next step in your experience will be actually booking your appointment using the online booking system linked below.
Start by choosing Jessi as your Service Provider. Next, you'll be booking a "New Guest Consultation" so that we have plenty of time to chat & be sure we're on the same page. Right below New Guest Consultation, you'll see a green button that says "+ Add Service"... Click that & add up to two additional services (be sure to choose Jessi as your Service Provider for each additional service you add), then the system will show you my availability.
Book the time that works best for your schedule, and if you're interested in booking more than two services in a single appointment, please indicate that in the "About your appointment" section at the top of the page that pops up after you've chosen a time. I'll be in touch to address any additional service requests, or if there are any scheduling problems.
Great! The experience continues...
So you've filled out my intake form, you've booked your appointment, and now you're excited, you're so ready for your hair dreams to finally come true, and ... you're mayyyybe even feeling a little nervous, right? I get it, babe! Meeting a new stylist can be SCARY! So let's talk about what you can expect when you walk into Salon Twelve:Seven for the very first time.
We’re doing things a bit differently these days to be sure everyone feels safe and stays healthy, so we’re asking that upon arrival, you remain in your vehicle until I’ve let you know that I’ve sanitized my space and am ready for you to enter. I’m finding that texting seems to be the easiest way to communicate with new guests since I may not recognize you or know what vehicle to look for so please watch your phone for a text from me. Masks are required to be inside any salon in Indiana these days, so do please bring one and put it on before you enter. We’re also asking that you come alone (unless you’re accompanying a minor for their appointment), and leave any unnecessary items at home or in your vehicle.
Once you’re inside, I’ll ask you to wash your hands in the restroom (I’ll point you in that direction). I’ll be washing mine at the same time, and then we’ll meet at my station to get started with a thorough chat about your hair's history and your goals moving forward. If you have a Pinterest board of dream hair, I'd LOVE to see it, so don't forget your phone! Together, we'll make a plan for the day's visit, as well as a long-term plan if that's what will be required to get you from our starting look to your "Dream Hair Final Destination."
If color is part of the day's plan, I'll then leave you to go mix a custom formula for you that will ultimately result in the happiest, healthiest hair you ever did see. Our amenities are currently limited due to the Covid-19 precautions we have in place, so please feel free to bring a beverage with a lid, and if you’re a reader we recommend that you bring a book to keep yourself entertained while your haircolor processes (or, of course your phone works for that as well). Next, we'll rinse your color at one of our heated, massaging shampoo chairs where I will give you a relaxing and rejuvenating scalp massage. I always say that leaving the shampoo room with clean hair is really just a bonus. It's actually all about the relaxation factor!
We'll then head back to my chair where I'll create for you a masterpiece of a haircut (the likes of which you have never before seen) based on your face shape, lifestyle, and overall goals. Product recommendations as well as styling tips and tricks will be shared as we finish with your blowdry & style, and extended styling lessons are available to book if you'd like to learn easy DIY updo's or fun curling techniques.
Finally, we will wrap up your first visit by checking you out (I accept cash and credit only), and setting up your next appointment. I may ask to take your picture to feature your beautiful new ‘do on my social media and/or website. Feel free to decline if you're a photo-phobe. I promise I won't hold that against you!
I'm truly so excited to meet you, and so grateful that you've chosen me to be your new hairstylist! I can't even wait to see what kind of beauty we're able to create together.
Oh, and I almost forgot...
Please allow me to introduce myself!
