Exciting changes are coming

You may have recently noticed a few changes on the Splitting Hairs Salon website. Those changes are but a minor sign of things to come, as the salon is now under new ownership.

Old is the new “new”, as long-time familiar stylist, Martha “Navi” Ward, has become the owner of Splitting Hairs Salon.

The changes have already started to work their way from the virtual to the physical. The boutique is now a splendid memory and will soon become a space where stylists will work their magic. Not only will you see logistical alterations to the salon, but a number of major cosmetic changes will soon begin. Don’t worry, the same warm and friendly atomsphere will prevail as Splitting Hairs Salon moves into a future filled with possibility.

If you have any questions about what’s in store, feel free to contact Navi via email or in person at the salon.

As always, thank you for your patience and patronage as we make this transition.

Ask the Stylist: Growing out hair

Q:  I’m trying to grow my hair out.  Why do I need a haircut?

A:  Even when your goal is to grow your hair longer, regular maintenance trims are still a good idea and should happen every 6-8 weeks.  Just a ¼ inch off the edges can make a huge difference in how the hair looks, feels, and behaves.  Unkempt ends can split, become fuzzy, and continue to unravel up the hair shaft, causing breakage, defeating the purpose of growing the hair longer.  Cleaning these edges up regularly can help to prevent this, and make the process less awkward.
