Our Story and Mission:
Who We Are:
Williams & Hanson INC was established in July of 2019 after a long awaited timeframe to purchase Belle Salon and Spa. The past year we have been working hand and hand with the past owner to learn about the company and learning how to make Belle grow in the future. Williams & Hanson Inc is made up of the following members, Sacha and Ryan Williams, Joshua Eden and Christopher Hanson.
Sacha has been with Belle since 2013. Before that she went to Iowa school of beauty to study cosmetology. In the past years being employed by different companies was not a path she wanted to call a “career”. The choice to go to beauty school instantly brought happiness and purpose to her life. Hair has always been her passion but she didn’t achieve “real” appreciation for the world of hair until she came down with breast cancer and lost all of her hair. At that point she realized how much hair is our identity, and that she wanted to help others look good and feel better about themselves through their hair.
Ryan comes from a military background. He has put in almost 20yrs in the Army National Guard. He has been active duty for 18 of those years. In his profession he has a lot of experience with interpersonal relations through HR work and leading a team composed of hundreds of individuals. Ryan has always had an entrepreneurial mindset and has shown interest in owning a business. When this opportunity came up they knew they could not say no.
Joshua has been with Belle since 2014. He graduated from the Iowa School of Beauty with his cosmetology license. He worked many different jobs over the years, until he found where he belonged. Once he got into the beauty industry, he knew this is what he wanted to do for a “career”. This industry brings Joshua so much passion, drive, and happiness. Joshua has a love for helping others succeed in their career, as well as keeping up with the latest education available so that he can pass knowledge onto others along the way. Joshua has always had a dream of being a salon owner since he came into the beauty industry. He has always lived by the quote of “Be your own kind of Beautiful”. Now he can live by his favorite quote, and do what he loves to do day in and day out.
Chris was born and raised in Sioux City. He has learned the value of supporting the community through his upbringing. He started his work career at Carmike Theaters where he worked for 15 years. After his management position he pursued his true passion, music education. He loves to continue his education. He continues to teach in the local community to this day. Chris has always had a desire to own his own company someday. When this wonderful opportunity arose he knew this was a chance he could not pass up.
We have two beautiful locations in Sioux City, Iowa. Our historic downtown location is a quiet getaway where you can enjoy a full spa experience, while our Lakeport Commons location has a high-energy, trendy vibe perfect for socializing and catching up on the latest.
