When Jane Elliott arrives at Anthony’s Salon in Valparaiso, Ind., she’s living her dream of a career in hair care. The salon’s new stylist from Paul Mitchell “always had an interest in the fashion world."
"After attending Culver Academies I decided to pursue a career in the fashion industry," she says, "which in turn led me to the exciting world of hair care.”
She also brings a wealth of experiences. “I was able to work backstage high-fashion hair during fashion week in New York City, for Emerge Fashion through Paul Mitchell. I was also a part of Paul Mitchell's huge show in Las Vegas.”
It’s given her the invaluable opportunity to do backstage work with some the top experts in the industry.
That makes her a perfect fit at Anthony Voltettorni’s salon, where high-fashion savvy and exacting experience mean customers enjoy truly wonderful service and satisfaction.
Elliott is thrilled. “After working in Chicago for some time I made the decision to come home to my home town of Valparaiso. It’s fantastic to work at Anthony’s Salon, one of the top-notch salons in the region. I chose Anthony's because of his extensive history in the industry: With more 55 years in the business, he knows how to run a successful salon.”
The apprenticeships for staff as well as ongoing education and training are an important part of ensuring that customers have an outstanding experience. Elliott credits a positive workplace atmosphere for the great sense of staff loyalty and retention, and why customers feel relaxed and cared for. Says owner Voltettorni, “Once our staff members come to work here, they want to stay.”
Elliott also has excellent training in high-fashion makeup and airbrush, offering that extra service Anthony’s Salon clientele appreciate.
Anthony’s full-service salon includes individualized hair care, with consultation and an emphasis on cut and color. For the best results, top-quality products are always applied, including Aveda and Sebastian hair care products, Wella hair color, and OPI brand nail care.
Owner Volttetorni, who has attended international conferences and given demonstrations, says “A great cut and a great color can really re-energize people’s whole outlook on themselves, and make themselves feel wonderful about their appearance.” The highly skilled staff and top-notch services draw clientele from many miles away for the superb experience.
That same commitment is extended to the community Anthony’s serves: For those needing extra care, Anthony’s Salon brightens the outlook for those in nursing homes, and contributes its expertise to various charities, such as Locks of Love, “so that cancer patients can feel good and look good during a very difficult time,” says Voltettorni.
At the salon, clients appreciate the availability of reflexology as a complementary health therapy through different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears. The holistic approach for those who desire it sends clients out the door feeling so wonderful, from the inside out. With a specialty in custom color and services like waxing and nail care, Anthony’s is truly dedicated to making clients feel absolutely beautiful.
