I, Brooklynn Bradley-LaFleur, grew up in a vibrant, unique, and larger than life hair salon/book store, famous for being the only one of it's kind, owned by my aunt who was really my first cousin (by marriage). It was called Beauty and the Book and was one of my favorite places to go. It sparked my creativity and introduced my love of reading, writing, and hair. From a very young age I knew exactly where I wanted to be. I went to work for her after I graduated Cosmetology school and learned a few of her tricks before it was time for her to start her next journey in life. She also helped me come up with the name, Salon Rouge. -Thank you Aunt Kathy for showing me a love of all things beauty and books.
I was also blessed with a beautiful mother who is and always has been about as fabulous as it gets! She is a makeup artist, painter, singer and leader in the Real Estate world. -Thank you mom, for a life full of adventure, beauty, art, travel, irreplaceable experiences and most of all, love.
To say I had the best role models in the whole world is an understatement. These two women have paved the way for me, and continue to inspire me every single day. Because of them, I knew exactly who I wanted to be when I grew up, I just had no idea where this path would lead.
I owe the other percentage of who I am to my father. He is one of the smartest, most patient men I have ever known. He puts up with all my shenanigans and has been at my side through all of it with no question or hesitation. He inspires me to reach beyond the stars and I know there is much more to come with my brand because of his love and support. My business, and me as a business woman, would be nothing without him.
-Dad, I can never thank you enough for everything. One of my proudest moments in life is knowing you are Papa Doc to my son. I am overwhelmed at how lucky we all are to have you.
God has definitely blessed me. I have lived a full life surrounded by the most amazing people!
-Thank you to my family and friends, you make my life whole.
Salon Rouge Spa started out with one operator (me) trying to provide as many services as possible in a small red building right as you make your turn off Broadway towards downtown, historic Jefferson, Texas. Over time, I became blessed with a team of ladies I could have only hoped for. They sparked something in me I never knew existed. Not only have they become great friends, these women are family to me. -My SRS team, you have no idea the love I have for each of you. Thank you for being on this journey with me and thank you for inspiring and supporting my crazy ideas. Without you all I would be nothing!
From this group of ladies, Salon Rouge expanded into Salon Rouge Spa. The possibilities are endless and my focus has become all about my team. I know they inspire everyone they come in contact with as they are not only masters of their trade, but irreplaceable people as well.
In just a few short years, we have not only expanded once, but twice!
-THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR LOYAL CLIENTS. You are the best!!! You allow us to do what we love and help make the Spa what it is today and appreciate your continued support.
Right in the middle of discovering who I am as a person and a brand, God placed my (now) husband right in my path. I wasn't looking. I had set goals to throw myself into Salon Rouge and community service, but as we all know, God had a different plan.
The moment I saw you, without even knowing your name, I knew. You were a puzzle piece to my future I had not yet realized was missing. Thank you for making me a mother, being my rock, irreplaceable partner and more than I ever dreamed of. Thank you for being there for me while I chase my dreams. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for our little family!
-Thank you for being my person. Thank you for being all that you are. Thank you for loving me-
