San Luis Obispo, CA – July 31, 2013 – Jonathan & George Salon in Beverly Hills – the flagship salon for celebrity stylist Jonathan Antin and renowned colorist Amanda George – has selected Mindbody software for its salon management needs.
“With Mindbody, I don’t have to worry about whether or not my business is running smoothly. I don’t have to sort through a mountain of emails, or call long meetings with my staff to get basic questions answered. Those are the problems that used to keep me up at night,” said Antin. “Not anymore.”
Jonathan & George Salon has built a reputation in the salon industry for creating the most coveted hairstyles in Hollywood. Over the course of their combined careers, they have worked with the likes of Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Christy Turlington, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Hudson. Antin’s success led him into his starring role on the reality television series Blow Out, which chronicled his life for 3 years as a dedicated salon owner and celebrity stylist. His business partner, Amanda George, stands as one of the most sought after colorists in the industry. Together, the duo have the power to not only set stylistic trends, but also to influence salon owners in their technology choices as web and mobile management tools grow in demand.
“As an influential stylist, I want to encourage salon industry professionals to embrace the power of technology. As a stylist, your time should be focused on creating beautiful hair -- Mindbody will take care of the rest,” said Jonathan Antin.
