Located in Broad Ripple for 25-plus years, Skinners recently moved to a new location with a cool, gleaming interior at 6223 Carrollton.
"We have clients that come from two, three, four hours away, from Greenfield, Cicero, Carmel," owner Jon Skinner said, adding he had considered relocating farther north. "Broad Ripple is a good general location.
Discretion is key at Skinners.
"We have a color space where everybody in there is having the same procedure done ... foils in the hair, etc. People don't feel as comfortable with other people walking by," Skinner said of a side room lit like a surgery area, all the better to tint to. There is also a separate pedicure room and individual dryer rooms.
"Comfort - that's the whole idea," Skinner emphasized. But fantastic hair is the foundation that's kept Skinner's clients coming back to him for 30 years. "I've had some clients since beauty school. You develop a major bond with a client," he said. They've likewise developed reliance and trust. Skinners is also known as a training ground for stylists. "We have a core of highly qualified hairdressers that are very good at what they do. From our core we plan on bringing new people in and teaching them," Skinner said.
"I customize what's going to look best on my client with what the trends are. I'm not going to give someone a mullet if they come in and want a mullet. They're not going to get one!" Skinner said laughing.
