The Women Who Mean Business (WWMB) Awards Luncheon is recognizing nine Louisiana women for outstanding business performance. In an article written by Christiaan Mader in ABiz covering these successful women, you will find that one of them is Ginger Louviere, the owner and operator of Spa Mizan, an Aveda Salon and Spa. Mader describes Louviere as a primped up business woman and Spa Mizan, an Aveda Salon and Spa, as a proper business through and through. There is no surprise there, since Louviere was one of the first people to be licensed to practice massage in Louisiana. Starting as just a hobby after the kids moved out, Louviere has since surpassed all of the statistics of gender pay inequality in Louisiana with Spa Mizan, an Aveda Salon and Spa.
Even before Louviere was the owner of an award-winning salon and spa, she was tending to skincare needs for years. Though she started out in nursing, Louviere made the career switch to esthetics. Her time in this field was under the titles Medical Esthetician with DermaTronics, a Certified Esthetics Trainer for AVEDA, and a Certified Medical Esthetics Trainer for Cosmedix Medical Esthetics. All of this led her to Spa Mizan, an Aveda Salon and Spa.
Spa Mizan, an Aveda Salon and Spa, is an 8,500 square foot facility and a full service salon and spa located at 2319 Kaliste Saloom Road in Lafayette. Her goal with her new facility was to create an oasis that catered to men and women of all walks of life. There are nearly 100 services offered including hair, make up, nails, body treatments, facials, and so much more. Louviere keeps all of the services up to date at Spa Mizan, an Aveda Salon and Spa, with all the latest skin treatments that can’t be found elsewhere. She wants to make sure that her customers are never disappointed with their options or service, including other spa owners who use Louviere’s services. She even takes the time to practice with her customers regularly, as well as bring the latest technology, products and training, to continue to meet her high standards.
Louviere has come far, to the point of benefits, insurance, and advanced staff education for the employees at Spa Mizan, an Aveda Salon and Spa. Louviere’s spa teaches a course that is mandatory of all the employees called Salon and Spa Business 101. This course teaches the business part of working in such an environment. No wonder Spa Mizan, an Aveda Salon and Spa, has been nationally recognized by Louisiana Economic Development and 2012’s Louisiana Small and Emerging Business of the Year!
Business venture aside, Louviere and her husband, Danna, enjoy being grandparents that love spending time with family and friends. She is not only loved by her family, but she is also cherished by her customers, who often refer to her as a friend and confidant. Louviere has a unique ability to bring peace to the soul, while treating the body.
Even with her current accomplishments and accolades, Louviere is always looking for ways to improve, which makes it easy to see why she is so successful. Her goal is to change the impression given by cosmetology. Spa Mizan, an Aveda Salon and Spa, strives to make cosmetology a first choice instead of the last option.
