Welcome to the Wisp blog! We’d like to kick it off by introducing our extended team.
You’ve spent the past few years with us watching the in Salon team evolve but who you don’t get to see is a very talented group of women that come together that allow Wisp to show up the way we do. Our Wisp community is very familiar with our stylists, but the Salon Wisp team has many behind-the-scenes players.
Our stylists and salon staff are very familiar to our Wisp communities, but there are so many vendors we rely on to elevate our brand, and we’d like to take a moment to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions of these fabulous women (and yes, we intentionally seek out amazing women whose talents and values align with ours).
Kristen is our brand queen who created our Wish Bridal and Braid Bar logos, as well as our beautiful new website. Kristen understands exactly who we are and how we want to show up in the world, which is crucial because everything we do is run through the filter of our brand.
We highly recommend Kristen for any graphic design or branding needs you may have!
Nicole North at Whiteboard Consulting helps design the systems and processes that help us grow, measure our success, determine new growth and identify gaps. She has improved our processes in the salon and played a huge role in helping us streamline our success.

Lindsay’s online expertise came to our rescue during the quarantine when Renee realized that her current social media strategy was no longer usable. Lindsay provided us with a sustainable plan and, thanks to her leadership, we’re able to manage it on our own. Her support has been essential in helping us transition during the pandemic and beyond.
If you’d like some social media assistance, contact Lindsay here:
We don’t attempt to do everything ourselves and that’s where Lori comes in. As the face behind the words, Lori helps us simplify our work by writing our copy. One of Renee’s talents (aside from the obvious) is recognizing the gifts of others and leveraging them.
Having known each other for over 15 years, Renee and Lori easily work together to ensure that all communication adheres to the Salon Wisp brand.

How do we stay sun-kissed during a global pandemic? Shaina and Your Tan! She specializes in organic, hypoallergenic airbrush spray tanning that is customized to provide the most natural-looking tan that is safe and natural. In addition to helping us keep our glow on, Shaina is a great Salon Wisp cheerleader and an exceptional friend to everyone at the salon.

Lindsay is an unofficial brand ambassador for Salon Wisp. Her exquisite style and mesmerizing energy captivate people (and nobody reps Natural Beaded Row like Lindsay!). Her online shop (@greyclothing) and local Village Square pop-ups have been keeping everyone looking fabulous these past months, and can’t wait to see what she has planned next—it’s sure to be epic!

Robyn Russell has been responsible for all of our beautiful images from day one. If something is being photographed in the salon, Robyn is behind the camera. Her infectious energy and incredible talent make us feel and look beautiful, and her images perfectly capture and convey the Salon Wisp story. This is the longest and most satisfying collaboration we’ve had over the years and we’re excited to see where it takes us next.
Anyone would be lucky to be on the other side of Robyn’s lens. You can see more of her gorgeous work here:
We’d also like to give a huge shout-out to the Downtown Burlington Business Improvement Area (BIA). They’re committed to helping businesses in the area thrive, using their platform to support our promotions and events. We’re grateful for the work they do, especially because so much of it is behind the scenes and doesn’t get recognized.
As you can see, it takes a village to support a business. We are so thankful to have so many fabulous women working with us!
