We Are Folawns
THIS IS OUR STORY
In 1994, Terry and Ken Folawn laid the foundation for the Folawns legacy. What emerged from their vision was the eminent Folawns Medical Spa and Salon in San Antonio, Texas – an establishment that has since earned accolades as an award-winning destination. The nascent venture, comprising merely five hairstylists and a receptionist, has blossomed into a thriving hub with over 50 dedicated team members, including Terry's mother, Shirley, and the newest generation, their daughter Hailee Folawn.
At Folawns, our allegiance to excellence is evident through our exclusive use of Aveda, Kerastase, Skinceuticals, and Jane Iredale products. This commitment reflects Aveda's shared ethos that interlinks beauty, the environment, and holistic well-being, constituting the heart of our ethos.
"Every Guest, Every Time"
At Folawn's, our foremost goal is to bestow upon you an experience reminiscent of 5-star care. "Every guest, every time" transcends being merely a catchphrase – it's a pledge we ardently uphold. We are unwavering in our stance against complacency, persistently adhering to a philosophy of perpetual evolution. This commitment extends to both our team and the company as a whole, as we relentlessly pursue growth, give back to the community, and relentlessly strive to enhance our knowledge and skills.
This unwavering dedication ensures that our business acumen, technical prowess, and customer-centric approach remain consistently at their zenith. It's this unyielding passion for continuous education and advancement that sets Folawn's apart, creating a discernible distinction in the experience our valued guests encounter with each and every visit.
Folawns goes Medical
Following the global upheaval caused by the pandemic in 2020, Folawns emerged from the shadows, reinvigorated, and evolved into a Medical Spa. In this transformative journey, we formed a dynamic partnership with Dr. Hannah Hamlin and WeTreat, a pivotal move that propelled us into a position of prominence as San Antonio's premier Medical Spa.
Guiding our medical endeavors is the experienced hand of Dr. Hannah Hamlin, a Lifestyle Medicine Physician and IFMCP practitioner. Her expertise intertwines seamlessly with our ethos, fostering a collaborative environment where patients actively participate in shaping their medical therapies and lifestyle approaches. Each step is meticulously tailored to align with their distinct aspirations and requirements, positioning Folawns as a beacon of holistic well-being and personalized care.
The Future of Folawns
In 2015, Hailee Folawn, the daughter of Ken and Terry Folawn, ventured beyond the realms of high school and unveiled a keen interest in the family enterprise. As she pursued her higher education at Texas Tech University, Hailee made the most of summers and winter breaks, immersing herself as a Beauty Consultant. These experiences offered a profound insight into Folawns and the beauty industry as a whole.
Upon her 2019 graduation, armed with a degree in Business Management & Marketing, Hailee returned to us with unwavering dedication, assuming the role of General Manager. Since then, her influence has extended to our Medical Spa, where she has taken the helm and earned the title of Medical Spa Director. Under her stewardship, our Medical Spa continues to flourish as she injects fresh perspectives, novel ideas, and cutting-edge education into our exceptional team of Laser Technicians, Registered Nurses, Physician Assistants, and Medical Aestheticians.
Green Circle Salons
Folawns Medical Spa and Salon proudly stands as a certified Green Circle Salon, a testament to our commitment to sustainability. Through our conscientious efforts, we now repurpose and recover as much as 95% of the resources that were once relegated to waste, including materials like hair, residual hair color, foils, color tubes, aerosol cans, paper, and plastics.
In order to sustain this environmentally-conscious initiative, a nominal Eco Fee of $2 is applied. This modest contribution ensures the continuity of our program, fostering a greener future for both our patrons and the planet.
