Hair Gallery Salon and Day Spa celebrating 35 years in business in Cape community

Hair Gallery Salon and Day Spa is celebrating 35 years in business in Cape Coral. Founded by Sue Cypher in 1983, the salon opened when Del Prado Boulevard was just a two-lane road covered in construction, and the only other landmark was Cape Coral Hospital.

Cypher had practiced cosmetology in Michigan for five years when she and her husband, Wes Cypher, got married and came to Southwest Florida on their honeymoon. And that's how it all began. The Cyphers never returned north, making sunny paradise their permanent home.

During that time in Cape Coral, businesses were suffering. Yet when a small salon went on the market, Cypher saw an opportunity. She bought the salon within six months of moving to Florida, and launched what is now Hair Gallery Salon and Day Spa, where she offered hair and nail services.

Within five years, things started turning around. A booming Cape Coral meant thriving businesses, and Cypher's salon doubled in size. At its 20-year mark, Cypher added a spa and began operating as a full service salon, offering waxing, facials and massage.

Highly focused on customer service, Hair Gallery Salon and Day Spa caters to both men and women, as well as families and working professionals of all types. With best-in-class quality, the spa offers high-end products such as Unite Hair Care shampoo, conditioner and styling products, Schwarzkopf color and Eminence hair care.

"There's nothing more rewarding than for the client to leave smiling and say, 'Oh my gosh! I love this, you made my day.' For us it's all about just making that client happy," said Cypher.

Being cutting edge is a priority at Hair Gallery Salon and Day Spa, and each of the stylists take an annual trip to California every single year to receive continuing education.

"It's important to keep up with education," said Cypher. "That is what separates us from other salons. We keep up and are current with all the trends, therefore making us stand out."

"The Hair Gallery family"

Throughout the years, building the salon has been a family effort.

"My husband was always there to knock down walls, do handyman work, do all the repairs. He contributed a lot," said Cypher. "Without him I would have never been able to build the spa that I have today."

The foundation they built is indeed strong, as the spa continues thriving in the same location where it began decades ago.

Her salon has grown into a family of diversely talented professionals, with some employees having worked there for up to 27 years.

"My team and I work together. They contribute a lot, invest a lot of time, it's like a family the Hair Gallery family," said Cypher, who admits she often passes the glory off to the rest of her staff.

"If you were to come in, you would know that it's very seldom I tell people I'm the owner. When people ask 'Who is the owner?', I'll generally say its Renee or Haley," Cypher laughed. "I never wanted that recognition. I feel like I'm on the same level as them, and that's why we work so well together."

After 35 years, Hair Gallery Salon and Day Spa is full of style and stamina. This includes Cypher, who gives off the kind of enthusiasm for her practice as if it was brand new just yesterday.

"I still look forward to going into work. I never see myself not doing hair. It's a passion. And if it's a passion - you'll truly be successful at whatever you may choose to do."

The Hair Gallery Salon and Day Spa is at 3006 S. Del Prado Blvd., Cape Coral. For additional information or to make an appointment, please call 239-549-3120.
