Salons create positive change for their clients and their community every day. Now, Matrix is joing with the salon technology pros at Salon Transcripts—makers of STX Salon and Spa Management Software—to make a positive change for one lucky salon.

By entering the Matrix/Salon Transcripts Salon Technology Makeover Contest, one salon will win a brand new STX software package, 27 inch iMac computer, two iPod touches, fingerprint security, and credit card swipe, all intalled personally by STX Founder and President Jon Maple and Vice President of Sales Jeff Mason

And, that's just the beginning. The makeover winner also receives a Matrix introductory color kit—containing Biolage Colocaretherapie Intro Kit and Gloss Sync Intro Kit. The total makeover is valued a more than $5,000. What's more, this valuable kit will be hand delivered by Marix Artistic Director Patrick McIvor, who will conduct an exclusive, in-salon color class for the winning salon team!

To enter, salons must create and upload a short video, explaining why their business deserves to win the technology makeover. According to Mason, salons an be using any system or platform—or nothing at all—when they enter. The entry period begins July 1, 2012, and ends at midnight, September 30, 2012. 

Additional contest details, including upload information, is available on the Salon Transcripts website at and at

The winner will be announced in October and installation will be complete by November so that the new system is up, running and ready to help the winning salon make the most of the busy holiday months. 

STX Salon and Spa Management Sotware offers salons a vast array of business-boosting features, including comprehensive guest data management, inventory control, payroll, appointment books, online booking and more. It's the industry's only MAC-based system, and it's easy to learn and easy to use. 

"There are so many ways to use our system to help generate more business in the salon," notes Mason. "With the guest data, for example, owners can filter out potential olor guests and offer them special color promotions, or send 'flash' promotion emails to fill downtime with color appointments on a slow day. We're thrilled to partner with Matrix to provide the winning salon with the technical tools they need to boost their color business, and salon business in general!"
