At Mateos, we have 20 hair stylists, 6 estheticians, 8 nail technicians, 10 massage therapists, and 6 front desk staff. Most of our staff have worked at Mateos for many years. This industry is known for high turnover for most companies but not Mateos. We are very fortunate to have such loyal staff and clients. Myself the manager, I have been here 14 years. It has been very rewarding to see our business grow over the years to what it is today.
Mateos has been very involved with our community. We sponsor, donate, and volunteer for multiple events, organizations as well as individuals. We support our local firefighters, police and military. We sponsor a local program called Profootball Camp, where NFL players mentor and teach kids from 7-14 years old. We volunteer at the camp making sure everyone has sunscreen before each day. Faceplant Dreams was very generous to donate pillow cases for us to put in our welcome baskets that we provide to the NFL players and their wives. Donations for silent auctions and fundraisers supporting organizations such as Tessa, Dress for Success, Alpine Autism, All Breed Rescue, Humane Society, American Heart Association, and Susan G. Komen to name a few. They say Colorado Springs is the smallest big town. We love that we are able to support our local organizations and community.
In 2010, the owner Cindy bought the building and refaced it. The outside now reflecting the inside which is a cozy Colorado lodge feel. New clients always comment on the relaxing atmosphere and how amazing it smells. If only we could bottle that smell. (A combination of all the wonderful bath and body products that we have in our boutique.) Over the years, we have added more vendors with products other than the expected in a salon and day spa.
You gave us permission to brag a little. Here are a few moments in Mateos history.
Go say hello to Cindy, Gina, and the rest of the Mateos team. And give them a big happy hello from us here at Faceplant.
