Business Spotlight: Ombú Salon + Spa
Small businesses and the people who own and work in them are the heart of our Edmonds community. To keep our downtown thriving, it’s more critical than ever that we think local first.
In this new series, we will be highlighting independently-owned businesses, and learn more about the folks that make them run!
Meet Beth Sanger from Ombú Salon + Spa
What is your favorite part of your business?
Our clients leave much happier than when they walked in. Being a part of this transformation is very rewarding.
When did you start your business?
It was by chance—the business was available and so was I. It’s been the very best career decision I ever made. I have been a part of many industries and this is my favorite one!
Why did you choose Edmonds for your business?
Edmonds is my favorite place to be.
What is unique about your business?
We focus on using organic and natural ingredients on the hair and skin. Each provider is uniquely talented. They also bring love for their profession and for their clients.
Why should people do business with you?
Ombu is a locally owned salon and spa that generously gives back to this community. We all live and play here. We love Edmonds! We hope this is reflected in the pride we have for the services we provide.
What are you currently doing differently during this time?
We have taken every precaution recommended by our industry. We all wear masks. We change aprons throughout the day. We wash hands between each client and sanitize every area of contact. We ask each client that enters to wash their hands as well. We offer disposable face masks. We have not raised prices or added extra fees since we reopened. And business is better than ever.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself!
I grew up in West Virginia and my love of mountains and nature runs deep.
Is there anything else you’d like to tell us about your business?
We offer services for the entire family. We value the relationships and trust that our clients place in us, and getting to know the entire crew is a big bonus!
