"Our #1 goal is to make sure you have the experience you envisioned from the time you walk in the door, until the time you walk out. The salon industry allows us to surround ourselves with a diverse group of people. Being a social person, I knew this was the atmosphere I wanted to be a part of. It has become my second family, my home away from home! Nothing pleases me more than to see our guests leaving happy, with a smile, and to know they will be coming back because of their entire experience. I love my job and being a part of the Kenneth Cote Team! The best compliment you can give a salon is a referral” Team member since 2018.
