We are headed back to our Village Pointe location for this month’s stylist spotlight! Crystal Millerd has grown up behind the chair at Garbo’s Salon. Her constant smile and positive energy can be felt the minute you walk in the door. If you step back and watch her work you’ll see her providing top-notch service to her clients while simultaneously mentoring her teammates and helping them grow. It is no wonder her books are always full!
I had the absolute pleasure of interviewing Crystal this month and am excited to share a little bit more about our assistant manager with you below!
How long have you been a stylist at Garbo’s Salon and Spa, Regency and what made you want to work there?
When I was ready to start looking for full time positions, Garbo’s was my first choice! I’ve been a stylist at Garbo’s since February of 1998 – almost 22 years! When I first went to apply I really wanted to work at the Regency location but unfortunately they were full. So I then went over to the Eagle Run location and interviewed with the manager there, Sherri Mahoney! I knew as soon as I walked in the door and met with Sherri that’s where I was suppose to start my career! Thankfully at the end of the interview she offered me the job!!!
My schedule has changed about five times over the past twenty two years – I had different hours each day and enjoyed Fridays and Mondays off. Now my schedule is a bit more consistent, 9 am to 7pm Monday through Thursday. I take Fridays off to take care of my niece and nephew, Charlie and Thor!

What is your favorite service to provide to your clients?
In addition to a hair stylist, you are also the assistant manager at Village Pointe. What made you want to take on a leadership role at Garbo's and why do you love it?
