About the Salon

Tell us about your salon?

“Inspire is special because it’s Howard County’s first organic, eco-friendly, cruelty-free salon. Our family-like environment makes for the ideal work place. You can feel our love and passion as soon as you walk through the door–but we don’t stop at using organic products. All the lighting in the salon is LED and energy-efficient, our countertops are eco-friendly concrete, the stylist station mats are made of recycled material, and all furniture in the salon is up-cycled or hand-made. We do everything we can to support the environment and give back to Mother Earth.”

What inspired you to work in this business?

“I started working in the beauty industry when I was 13 years old. 18 years later, I still feel as if this is my calling. Clients, stylists, and nature are my greatest inspirations. Making clients feel good, helping my stylists achieve their goals and dreams, and my goal to impact how this industry does business keeps me inspired daily.”

Why did you choose IN?

“I chose IN because of the mission and passion for organic living. It feels good to support such an amazing company. I also knew right away that anything Horst had his hands in was going to be good.”
– Kathleen L.


Highlights From The Team

Highlights from the Team

What is your favorite memory of working in a salon?

“My favorite Inspire memory was my first North American Hairstyling Awards photo shoot. Everyone from the salon came to the shop to help me in some way. I wasn’t expecting everyone’s help – it was such a nice surprise! It made me realize that I am exactly where I’m supposed to be and that I’m working with the best team possible. I didn’t make it into NAHA that time, but the experience made it so worth doing!”
– Jenni Y.

What is your favorite hairstyle to create?

“My favorite style to create is any type of braid. Whether it’s a Dutch French braid, a fishtail, or a waterfall braid, it’s so fun and looks great on every hair type. I use a tiny bit of straight hair serum to smooth any fly-aways and create a little bit of hold. When the braid is finished, I will spray perfect hold or replenishing spray.”
– Laura O.

What is your most hilarious/ embarrassing hair moment?

“My most hilarious/embarrassing moment in the salon was when I went to open the cabinet in the break room to get a coffee mug and our salon coordinator (who also happens to be my youngest sister) had printed and hung up a picture of me from the 9th grade. It made me crack up. The hair-sprayed poofy fringe was in full effect. It’s still hanging up.”
– Jenni Y.


What is your favorite INTELLIGENT NUTRIENTS® product and why?

Styling Pomade, PurePlenty Nourishing Scalp & Strand Serum, Volumizing Foam

“My favorite IN product has got to be the PurePlenty™ Scalp and Strand Serum. I have never come across a product so effective and versatile. Applied to hair wet or dry, pure plenty serum is a powerful scalp stimulator and thickener, a reparative strand treatment, and super softening to coarse locks. I use it on my clients that have thinning hair, and also on my clients that have damaged, scraggly, thirsty ends.”
– Christine E.

“My favorite IN product is definitely the Volumizing Foam. I love the shine and hold it gives without feeling heavy, and the re-styling ability due to the memory gums is definitely a plus for second day hair. It’s so versatile that I can use it on almost every client that sits in my chair.”
– Laura M.

“My favorite IN product is the Styling Pomade. I love the memory it provides in the hair. I think it’s great in short hair, long hair, curly hair, wet sets, curl sets with a blow dryer, and with upstyles and braiding. It leaves no residue the next day and it smells awesome!”
– Jenni Y.
