4019 Skippack Pike, Skippack, PA
Skippack Stylekrafters Salon is celebrating 25 beautiful years in Skippack Village!
In 1994, Karen Lovett began her business experiment at 3882 Skippack Pike. Today her salon at 4019 Skippack Pike is a thriving hub of creative activity. Karen believes the salons success is attributed to a magical blend of good management, talented, continually educated professional stylists and a loyal clientele base in a, charming, inviting, relaxed environment.
Stylekrafters opened with Karen herself and a shampoo person for the first year to her present family of 13 employees. The business consists of 7 full time stylist, 3 up and coming assistant apprentices (cosmetology students) and 3 shampoo assistants and receptionists. Karen says they are one, big, happy family and she means it. “We do everything together, and we try to set our employees up for success in their professional as well as their personal lives” that is the beauty of a small business. Our employees are the back bone of our business and without their passion, loyalty and dedication we couldn’t survive, so they are treated the way we would want to be treated with fairness, respect and dignity.
Throughout the years the salon had many changes. Stylekrafters went from doing a variety of different services including their “Darling Diva Birthday Parties” on Saturday afternoons, nails, facials, massages, to now doing all hair services, waxing and make- up application.
It took almost 25 years, but they are now open 7 days a week! Karen said that she always wanted to be open every day of the week and her management, consisting of her daughter Lindsey and her daughter in law Lauren were able to implement it. Now their clients know…” we are always available for them”. They also have put tiered pricing in place, so anyone, on any budget, can afford the Stylekrafters experience!
They call it an experience… and for a good reason.
Anyone who enters the salon will tell you that you are always met with a genuinely warm smile, greeting and a beverage. It is a very uniquely happy place. You can feel the warmth and the love! Stylekrafters treats all their clients to hot stone massages, warm shoulder packs on chilly days to free refreshments and drinks. They are all about the total service experience!
