Heyday Collective allows you to enjoy all the perks of being an independent artist while unlocking your potential and offering an elevated guest experience as part of a luxury brand.
Typical booth-rental options and white-box studio models can be limiting for the artists who want to offer an elevated guest experience, expand their earning potential, and prioritize their own wellness at the same time.
Collective artists can enjoy their independence with one of multiple unique leasing options, while also benefiting from being able to offer concierge-level service from the moment their guest walks into the salon.
For over a decade, Erin and Tim have been scribbling notes and drawing floor plans on cocktail napkins over dinner dates… plans they knew would one day bring about the creation and evolution of Heyday Collective.
A specialty artist herself, Erin is all too familiar with the struggle of having limited options available to support growth as a luxury stylist without venturing into full salon ownership. While opening her boutique luxury salon in Ohio City felt like the only option to upgrade beyond studio rental, Erin knew this daunting task wasn’t a feasible reality for many stylists. She felt called to create spaces for other independent artists to be able to thrive and enjoy the career of their dreams, prioritizing both an elevated guest experience AND their own health and prosperity.
Over the years, Tim has tirelessly listened to Erin’s ever-growing vision and has supported and encouraged her out-of-the-box ideas from day one. While Erin continues to nurture a niche clientele as an extensions artist behind the chair, Tim is behind the scenes making calls, arranging meetings, and opening doors to make their Collective vision a reality for artists across Northeast Ohio.
Each of our Collective locations have been professionally designed and fully furnished, alleviating start-up stress for the artist and providing a consistent luxury experience for salon guests.
Our historic buildings boast character you won't find in other strip-mall studio concepts: exposed brick, plaster finishes, and unique architectural elements like original fireplaces or elevator shafts incorporated into the design.
Gone are the days of working under fluorescent lights in a closed-in space. Knowing how important natural light is to creating and capturing an artist’s best work, all of our Collective workspaces benefit from oversized windows with views of the city.
Common physical spaces and community education opportunities have been incorporated into the design and vision for our Collective spaces to encourage camaraderie and community among our artists.
Cozy lounges, community cafés, bird’s eye break rooms, and outdoor patios all offer unique breakaway spaces to encourage well-being for our artists, unlike any other studio or salon you know.
Towels, robes, and capes are provided for all Collective artists, as well as complimentary laundry facilities + lockers.
Guests feel welcomed and pampered from the moment they walk in thanks to our concierge-level service and amenities. Each location benefits from private and secure entry points.
In our research, we discovered that while many solo artists enjoy their independence, there are elements of working in a traditional salon environment that they love and miss. These are things we kept at the forefront of the vision for Heyday Collective to create unique luxury spaces that celebrate both independence and community.
