Odyssey Hair Studio
 
Since attending our Owners Forum and becoming an ARROJO Ambassador in November of 2016, Odyssey Hair Studio has been advancing their creative modern approach to hairdressing. Located in Center City Philadelphia, Odyssey’s commitment to the craft stands out, from attending our Happy Mondays event in NYC every month to lending the ARROJO creative team their salon to prep for the Philly Exposé hair show. We spoke with Owner Alexis Hoban to learn more about her salon business and her passion for continued education.
 
When did Odyssey open its doors?
 
We just recently celebrated Odyssey's one year Anniversary on May 17th.
 
How big is your staff?
 
We currently have three full time stylists, one part time stylist, and one apprentice.
 
When did you start doing hair and why?
 
In 2007 I graduated from Jean Madeline. Since I was a young girl I knew I wanted to transform hair, inspire people, and have my own salon. I grew up in a family full of stylists and barbers and I always knew I wanted to follow in their footsteps. 
 
How has education from ARROJO helped your business, staff, and clients?
 
The education we get from ARROJO is priceless! I'm obsessed with education; it is one of the main things that attracted me to ARROJO. We go up to Happy Mondays every month because it keeps my team motivated and excited. It's always the best when Nick is teaching; he keeps it fun and educational. I don't think there's been a time that I haven't taken a skill learned at Happy Mondays back to my salon. We're located in Philly so my clients love that we are always staying up to date with the latest trends and going to NYC for extra training.
 
Tell us something you love about the craft of hairdressing?
 
I love that no two heads are the same— you get to be creative with every client that sits in your chair. Seeing your client smile because of how great they feel about themselves after they leave your chair really puts the cherry on top.
 
This article is about you and your business is there anything else you'd like to say?
 
Becoming an ARROJO ambassador has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for my business. The support, education, and the relationships I've built through ARROJO are unparalleled. I'm looking forward to continually growing for years to come!
