Welcome to the Salon ConneXion Solution!

Welcome to the Salon ConneXion Solution! A new solution and answer to hiring and leasing chair and room rentals. Let us share what you can expect. Salon ConneXion is a space where licensed cosmetologists, barbers, nail technicians, estheticians, and massage therapists will be able to connect with licensed industry businesses with openings as well as a place for industry businesses to showcase their locations like an MLS and post openings for chairs and rooms. This will also be an opportunity to connect with industry suppliers, industry schools and industry continuing education. This is a new concept that after much research has been developed by Linda Friestad to help promote all of us in the industry, to help us grow as business owners, and to meet the needs of our clients by filling openings.


Linda Friestad has over 38 years of experience as a licensed hair stylist, master colorist and has been a salon owner for 25 years. At 12, Linda knew that she wanted to be part of the industry that impacted the lives of many through beauty as she began to cut hair for family and friends, always striving to help others feel good about the way they look and feel. Throughout her adult life, Linda owned her own salon in a small town in southern Iowa. After she moved to the Des Moines Metro area, she worked as a manager and stylist for JCPenneys and has owned her own salon for the past 18 years where she has been able to incorporate her own personal values into her business’ core values.

Combining Linda’s personal core values of integrity, honesty, dedication, high expectations and strong work ethic with her business has allowed her to create an environment of the same in her business and will continue through her Salon ConneXion Solution website. This new concept of creating a site for only hair care and beauty licensed professionals to connect and expand business opportunities can only provide solutions that have been long unanswered questions. It goes beyond what is offered on other job search websites and individual business websites.
