As salon owners, the importance of influence, excellence, relevance and character are driving principles that build both the salon and each team member to reach their full potential as successful stylists both in their career and life. Thirteen years of marriage and four children have taught them a lot about managing people and life as well as loving and caring for those who they are blessed to be around. In the words of Heather and Daniel, "We want to create the best experience for all our clients and Hot Seat team members every time they step into the salon, it's not just about doing, it's about transforming, inspiring people to be as amazing as the hair they walk out with."
