Now this is something to celebrate!
For the past three years we have come together to celebrate the salon’s top performers. This year’s event took place on Sunday evening (after our amazing cutting class with Geno Chapman) at Herbe Sainte in Aksarben Village. We invited the thirty eight top performers to enjoy a tasty, New Orleans inspired dinner and be celebrated for the hard work and dedication they demonstrated throughout the previous year.
We know how hard our stylists, makeup artists, estheticians, front desk crew and managers work year round so to be able to highlight those who have gone above and beyond is super special for us. These ladies and gentlemen deserve special recognition as they are truly Garbo’s Top Performers
But first, snow…
Before the celebrations could commence we were all crossing our fingers the event would actually happen… The weather in Nebraska is always crazy but no one expected to get a snowstorm in the middle of October! Thousands of people all over town lost power but thankfully our gracious hosts at Herbe Sainte were not affected. They were busy prepping for our large party to take over their adorable restaurant that evening!
THE KEYNOTE SPEAKER
Once we had all made it safely to the restaurant we grouped together for a photo (pictured above) and settled in so our keynote speaker could take the stage. If you follow our instagram page (@garbossalonandspa) you’ll know we had Geno Chapman in our Academy earlier on Sunday to take us through an advanced cutting class. His speech that evening was as inspiring and informational as his class earlier that day! Many of our Top Performers have been in the business for many years so it filled us with energy to hear Geno talk us through how he still finds inspiration and excitement in his work.
And the award goes to…
Next, our fearless leader (and owner), Darcy Michalek, along with our Manager, Sherri Mahoney, presented each of the present award winners their Top Performer awards. The small trophies were accompanied by a little highlight of each person – a funny story or sweet memory that made us all smile. We finished the evening by enjoying the time we had to spend together and celebrate each other. We only do this one a year so we relish the opportunity we are given to chit chat and catch up with our fellow team members outside of the salon.
This Year's Top Performers
Each and every person who works at Garbo’s deserves to be recognized for their hard work and dedication to the organization but this small group of individuals deserve an extra little thank you for going above and beyond. Thank you very much! Now, go celebrate, you deserve it!
