Just a few years ago, Amy Roland, owner of A Roland Salon in New Cumberland, Pennsylvania, was a hardworking, driven haircare professional who was unaware she would soon be opening her own salon. However, in December 2012, she did just that. “I thought I would do something like this later in life,” she recalls. “I wasn’t even sure I was ready; but I went ahead and made the choice to do it and everything fell into place.”
Roland is now one of those entrepreneurs that wakes up every day excited to go to work. “I truly feel like the salon is an extension of my home. It’s a place where I can come in and be artistic, creative and help others,” she says, adding that making personal connections is one of her favorite aspects. And she’s not the only one feeling that way. Salon team members and clients gush about the friendly social aspect of the salon, as well.
One feature that makes this community-centric salon stand apart from the rest is the exclusive use of Aveda products. “I discovered Aveda more than eight years ago while working at another salon,” explains Roland. “I fell in love with the company’s culture and concepts, like beauty is in everything, fair trade sourcing, giving back to the community and taking only what you need. Plus, the products deliver. You get amazing results, naturally.”
