From Gentilly to Downtown, Ringletts Salon opens new ‘express’ location in Hilton Riverside

Written by
It’s been ten years since Mindy Hobley opened her first Ringletts Salon, which has now become a who’s who meeting place of all kinds of New Orleans women getting their tresses done by some of the best in the business. And we’re not lying…go in any day and you’re bound to see a few local celebrities and plenty of family and friends.
“I’m ecstatic that ten years later, Ringletts is stronger and we are getting nationwide recognition,” said Mindy. “We were just recently voted as one of the ‘Top 100 Salons of 2015 in America’ by Elle Magazine. It feels good to see my vision for the company becoming a reality. Twenty-eight years in the beauty industry has been a blink of an eye, and servicing and helping people every day to look and feel their best give me life. I also am very proud of all of my beautiful stylists; they work hard and put our clients first.”
From Gentilly to Downtown, Ringletts Salon opens new ‘express’ location in Hilton Riverside | IntheNOLA.comMindy’s team is second to none. “Each of them has an extreme amount of passion for what she does. When you come to Ringletts, it’s like going to your girlfriend’s place. We want the best for you. We want you to look your best at the event you’re going to. We want you to look your best at your new interview or whatever’s going on in your life. We really care here. We’re not only a hair business; we’re a people business. Any my girls, they’re very strong, always wanting to please and showing care for the client.”
In addition to hair services, the Ringletts’ Gentilly location (4712 Paris Ave.) has added the WAXHOUSE, which houses a fulltime esthetician. “We offer makeup, full body waxing, threading, facials, lashes, henna tattoos, and more to meet the needs of our clients. We’ve also partnered with Davines, an Italian product geared to meet the needs of multi-textures and multi-cultures.”
Just recently, Mindy opened up her second Ringletts ‘express’ location downtown at the Hilton Riverside (2 Poydras St.). “Thanks to the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program, I learned how to set my systems of operations in place to allow me to open an second store and not have it drive me crazy,” Mindy explained. “Ringletts Express at the Hilton has been a whirlwind of positivity and light. It was designed 100% by me and it has all the makings of a high fashion parlor where prompt, efficient, and excellent hair and nail services are standard. The Hilton company has welcomed us with open arms and expressed to me that they want to do whatever it takes to help Ringletts Express become successful.”

Mindy continued, “Being located downtown and inside the Hilton Riverside hotel is so fun and refreshing because we get to welcome people from all over the world every day. It’s kind of my little international salon, meeting the needs of people from all walks of life. It’s also very simple for locals to visit us and get a change of scenery with four-hour free validated parking.”
Mindy is for sure one busy New Orleans woman! But that doesn’t interfere with the quality of care you receive from both of her salons. “My favorite thing about each of my salons is the easy, friendly attitudes, and simple kindness that was taught by my example.”
Mindy concluded, “When I was growing up, there were white salons and black salons and neither of them could get my hair right. I started my journey in 1986 to figure this hair thing out and to be able to service and please ALL people. The motto and core belief of Ringletts is ‘Hair is not a race; it is like a fabric’ and my mission is to teach and bring this belief forth. With the right education, all hairstylists should have the skills to please any individual who walks in Ringletts' door.”
