Cultivating a Collective: Working with Staff and Customers

This week, we’re talking with Beth Doyle, owner of The Collective, a salon in Birmingham’s Pepper Place neighborhood.  Beth brings her creative passion to both her hairdressing skills and her business. She started as a teacher, and one of her salon’s main goals is to support new stylists through an associate learning program, complete with curriculum and multiple levels. Carrie and Beth talk about how the pandemic, and more recently social media, have changed the game for The Collective — and so many other businesses, too.
