One Salon and Spa Winnipeg

For clients who have been calling One Salon and Spa in Winnipeg, looking to book an appointment with me, and who are being told that "Karin Hiebert" is booked up, and another stylist can service you...I am not booked up, I no longer work at One Salon.
I've been told this repeatedly by clients who have found me and conveyed to me that this is what they are being told.

Linda Gershman, the owner of One Salon and Spa in Winnipeg denies this, just moments after I posted on Twitter about this issue (Linda did not respond to the Twitter post, but sent me a personal text message instead -YET another not so great idea!)
I have concrete evidence - Including a public post by a former client on a social media platform, who was told I was 'all booked up'.

I get it, the owner wants the clients to book an appointment and build the salon's clientele by offering another stylist to provide services for them...however, people will and HAVE found out that I indeed am not there. This isn't ever a good idea, it reflects poorly on the owner, and the business.

I highly recommend that this tactic or strategy isn't used by any salon owners at anytime when a staff member is no longer with the company.

Where the Heck is Karin Hiebert???

Well it was about time that I updated my profile picture...after all the one below I had up for several years...O.K., I had it up  forever!
It was long over due for a change, and chances are I probably would have just left it as is, since it simply became a familiar face - or rather profile pic across the web.

I was asked for a 'head shot' for a hair salon - One Salon and Spa here in Winnipeg...I was going to be working there, so the owner "Linda Gershman" needed a head shot for the website. 

So, hubby and I spent an afternoon with the iPhone taking various pictures and've probably heard me mention the salon on a few occasions (One Salon and Spa in Winnipeg) you can read a bit about it in my posts, and of course on Twitter etc.

I don't have a lot of good things to say about my experience, except that I do wish the owner NOTHING - but success. ;-)

So here you have it...the new profile pic of Karin Hiebert: you'll probably see again for the next few years!
