Kara Richard: Summerland Salon & Spa
Q. With COVID-19 changing the way we interact as a community, how are you making it work through this difficult time and do you have any tips to share?
A. Here at the Summerland Salon & Spa, we’ve worked together as a team to think of innovative ways to stay in touch with our clients. One of those ideas was to create Virtual Salon & Spa experiences. Through consultations, facial and hair care kits, and coaching sessions, we are able to take care of our clients by video chat. This has been so much fun for all of us, and we love being able to still serve our community!
What is your favorite memory of living in Summerland?
Summerland has always been a hidden gem to me. I love how peaceful it is, and I feel so grateful to be able to live in and co-own a business in this little town.
My favorite memory of Summerland was when we had our first Summerland Block Party two years ago. It was incredible to see all our local businesses come together to create such a fun day. It was also the salon’s one-year anniversary, so it was definitely a special day for us.
