The Creed of INTERLOCKS

We are committed to providing exemplary client satisfaction through our services and client engagements, while embracing ongoing education to better ourselves within our field of expertise, and within our community and society. We will promote growth and celebrate one another’s success both personally and professionally, and we will honor individuality and the uniqueness of each client. We will communicate thoughtfully within and outside our business walls, mindful of the individual impact our voices have on our collective brand. And we will create a safe and inclusive work environment for all genders, ethnic backgrounds, and identifications. We acknowledge our prior shortcomings within our own actions and within our industry, and we accept the ongoing work to do better, working together as a unified team to uphold our values and goals, and to thrive in our collective success.

Customer Service

We strive to provide high quality services and products and we will make every effort to ensure your satisfaction. Our newly renovated space is designed to provide a high level of service to all in the diverse fabric of our beautiful Greater Newburyport Community.

Community

We are committed to supporting a business model that gives back to our community’s charitable causes. We give back to various organizations in our community by donating funds, auction or raffle items, or time providing services or other support. We are affiliated with Anna Jaques Hospital and the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center and their missions to benefit our community. Learn more by visiting ajh.org and jeannegeigercrisiscenter.org.

Education

Through our commitment to continuing education, INTERLOCKS provides advanced training by premier educators through top venues both national and international. With cutting-edge techniques and product trainings, as well as our salon and cosmetics Guest Artist events, our staff is well versed on the latest trends, styles and services in the beauty industry. Over the years, INTERLOCKS has created a group of professionals that work together as a team to share techniques, collaborate, inspire, and create an ideal salon and spa environment.

Salon Apprentice Program

Our Salon Apprentice Program to train and educate newly licensed stylists has resulted in 70% of our current stylist staff. Our two-year program molds young talent, and provides them with the guidance, education, and mentorship to hone their skills and develop a clientele prior to taking the floor. Master Stylists Alisson (Director of Salon Assistants) and Andrea (Director of Salon Education) create a curriculum of both traditional classes and hands-on experience, and tailor the coursework to each apprentice as necessary.

Team Culture

We pride ourselves on a supportive, team-based culture across our many departments. Team members are empowered through skill-based training and educational opportunities, a supportive management team with open lines of communication, and the celebration of our collective successes. We actively cultivate a kind, professional, and positive atmosphere  — while also having plenty of fun! It is a testament to our culture that nearly half our team has invested a decade or more, and new team members are welcomed with open arms.
