Bambou Acquires Queen Bee Salon

Kansas City Based Bambou Salons & Spas will acquire the Queen Bee Salon, located at 467 NE Coronado Dr in the Adams Dairy Stores, on Monday, June 12, 2017. The location will be rebranded as a Bambou Salon, which will be completed by August 2017.


Kansas City, Missouri, June 6, 2017

Bambou Salon & Spa will acquire the Blue Springs based Queen Bee Salon effective June 12, 2017. Queen Bee was established in 2014 and provides high quality beauty services from the Adams Dairy Landing mall location at 467 NE Coronado Drive.

Bambou owner, Sean Barnard, stated that the addition of Queen Bee fits perfectly into the strategic growth of the company; “I could not have been luckier to have met the current owners, who quite frankly are two of the nicest people. They have built a reputation for exceptional service, great products, and have a wonderful team located in the heart of the vibrant Adams Dairy Landing Mall in Blue Springs”.

Changes will be few, Barnard continued; “We will rebrand the salon to Bambou Salon Blue Springs, but for me the most important assets – our highly-trained stylists and front desk team – will remain the same and become a valuable part of the Bambou family.”

Bambou expects to announce further acquisitions. “We have determined that the Midwest supports and prefers businesses that are locally owned and operated. We want to keep within the Kansas City metro and establish a reputation for high standards, training, service and quality. We plan to expand Bambou Salons & Spas to five locations over the next three years, but we will also only pursue opportunities that will support and excel our brand.” 

Bambou Salons & Spas, is a Kansas City, MO based brand established in 2016. The company owns and operates Bambou Salon & Spa in Downtown Overland Park, Kansas, formerly the International Hair & Day Spa.

    I’ve always enjoyed coming into Queen Bee Salon because of the atmosphere and the ladies that work there. I loved it because it was like a getaway, somewhere to relax. When I recently went into the salon and saw the new design I was in shock. The color choice is most definitely not soothing and I didn’t enjoy it as much as I usually did. I’ve been coming to Queen Bee since they opened, I’m sad to see all of this new change.
