If you think that a simple gesture, such as serving coffee to a guest, goes unappreciated or is taken for granted, then think again. It set the stage for making a big impression on me.
I’d been having a bad hair week and, on the spur-of-the-moment, dropped by a trendy hair salon, called Square One in Dayton Ohio, to see if they could fit me in.
After asking me if they could take my coat, they inquired whether I would like a cup of coffee.
Let me tell you, I was impressed. The experience only got better. The coffee was presented in a sleek black mug with a handle that fit me like a glove. I was expecting a styrofoam cup. Believe me, it tasted great!
The rest of the details are not food-related, but I’d like to share them with you only to paint the complete picture of a wonderful experience I will not soon forget. After they washed my hair, they wrapped my head in a hot wet towel infused with a wonderful aromatherapy scent. I got a great cut followed by a complimentary make-up touch-up.
The coffee set the tone for the rest of the experience. I have no intention to go back to my previous hair stylist because she, nor her salon, couldn’t come close to the “event” that I had just enjoyed. I felt like a queen and now I’m hooked.
