    Deroc, I started fresh in Cape Coral myself not too long ago, but alas, you are in luck, this city is filled with movers and shakers and people are ALWAYS interested in new ways to look and feel their best.I too have about 18 years in the industry and had worked in Fort Myers, moved to NC, then back to Florida, but since about 5 years had passed since being in Florida, I decided to search for an upscale salon that catered to coloristd, and began building in a commission based setting. It took a little less than a year to become the salons top earner.It is (like anything worth doing) not an eaay task, and because the majority of people here are working within tight budgets you MUST remember to treat your loyal clients well, give freely of yourself, and make yourself available to them with ease. There are SO many great people here from all over this coubtrt and have even found myself with quite a large group of German clientele. Great news is, they LOVE to refer to their friends and family. I continue to offee referral discounts, but am now happily nestled in a quaint booth rental salon, right in the heart of Downtown Cape Coral. Sounds like you have quite an extensive knowledge of your craft, and that you enjoy educating your guests, that alone will take you far. Remember your humble beginnings, this is a small tiwn where everyone seems to know everyone, so try not to “down talk” other stylists work, instead focus on what makes you different, and will therefore enhance their beauty routine. I am ALWAYS open to meeting and networking with othee proffessionals in my field. Feel free to contact me via email and we can exchange info from there! Beautiful work on Gael, and Im interested in following your journey in this great city. Its a beautiful place to call home!

    Honestly Deroc is a MAGICIAN!! I cannot believe the difference in my hair and how much easier it is to take care of now, especially with the humidity down here in Florida. (My husband Scott and I also recently moved to Cape Coral from Colorado.) Not only does Deroc cut your hair in a “artistic” and functional manner, he educates you along the way so that YOU can create the same look for yourself well after he is gone. I am absolutely thrilled and will be recommending Deroc to all of my friends, clients, and associates here in the sunshine state.

    I think you are going to be amazing here in Cape Coral and I can’t wait to see your business journey unfold. Your entrepreneurial outlook and energy are sure to lead to success. I have been here a year and have found it very difficult to find what I am looking for in regard to hair care and of course you know my dilemma with my daughter. I will happily pass out your business cards in our school family and beyond.

      I just talked to John today and found myself missing the salon as well. I’m sure I’ll be back in town sooner or later. We can reconnect then and I will give you FIFTEEN years younger!
