Wednesday at Decatur House is Hair Salon Day. Beginning at 9AM, residents take turns riding the elevator to the ground floor where they know they will be greeted — and treated — by hair stylist Stephanie Santos. Soon after, each will board the same elevator, and emerge donning expertly styled hair framing a big smile, looking and feeling refreshed!
Stephanie received her cosmetology training and license from Plymouth South High School in 2006. She worked at a salon for more than 10 years before coming to Decatur House a little over a year ago. She says she loves what she does and enjoys her job at Decatur House because she feels she is providing a service that makes her clients feel special. She adds, “I love the relationships I have built with the residents, hearing their stories, and seeing them smile when they walk in!”
And the residents clearly love Stephanie as well. One devoted Decatur House client, Eleanor, says “Stephanie does a wonderful job. She is very professional—I really enjoy my hair appointments with her!”
When she is not styling hair, Stephanie spends time with her husband, young son Joseph, and french bull dog Layla. She loves the beach, being outside, and especially enjoys visiting Disney World with her family.
Thanks for helping our residents look and feel so good Stephanie!
