Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
LaMae is a full-service salon, spa and boutique—providing a comprehensive array of personal hair care and beauty treatments to satisfied clients in a relaxing and modern environment. LaMae was a dream of owners and mother and daughter team, Ashley and Pat Thornhill, for a long time. The name “LaMae” is actually a combination of Ashley and Pat’s middle names (Lauren and Mae). It was always our goal to bring a salon and spa to Cameron Park that offered more than just a haircut or brow wax; we wanted to actually serve the community.
How are you involved with both the community and your customer?
Our mission statement is to provide empowerment through beauty and health. Our goal is to enter the school system and hold classes for our younger generation of girls so they can feel beautiful in their own skin. We will also be active as sponsors in local sports venues and take part in many charitable functions.
What life accomplishments are you most proud of?
Succeeding in our dream of opening a salon. Ashley specifically is very happy to own her own business before the age of 30. Her dad always told her that the unfortunate fact of life is that this is a man’s world, and the best way to defy those rules is to “own the store.”
Where do you go when the going gets tough?
Attending church on Sundays is a great way for the whole family to wind down and focus on the important things in life.
What’s your favorite local event that you go to?
Dueling pianos night on Wednesday’s at Reunion Nightclub in El Dorado Hills.
And finally, customer service is…?
Customer service should never be a complicated matter. Our number one goal is to serve, and the customer always comes first in every way—before, during and after his or her service. We stand by this and expect nothing less.
