Spring is here and we are all inspired! Over the winter, the staff has completed some great haircutting classes and traveled to experience the Chicago hair show, the largest hair show in the Midwest. During my sabbatical, my creative mojo came back, reminding me how much being a hairstylist and rock and roll go hand in hand—at least for me, anyway! (For those of you interested in learning about my sabbatical, click here to read more.)
The emergence of Michigan’s own Greta Van Fleet has taken me back to my teens and my love for Led Zeppelin. Likewise, the Bohemian Rhapsody film, which covers the incredible story of Freddie Mercury and Queen, made me remember my early days of doing hair and all of the wonderfully talented hair stylists who shared their creativity with us. Let us be inspired by the free spirit of the 70s, and honor the talented artists of the 80s (they did bring us the mullet, after all, ha ha). May we remember what they taught us, those rockers and stylists—the fact that life is impermanent and we must love deeply and fully. Love yourself and express yourself in a way that feels authentic to you; give yourself permission to play; have fun and enjoy this life! How do you want to live your life in a way that is inspiring to you and how do you want to express that inspiration? To ignite your creative mojo, I invite you to check out my Creative Cuts board , Glam Rock board, and Words To Inspire board on Pinterest! Scroll down for important Salon changes, our Mother’s Day special/product of the month, and fun upcoming events!

Celebrating our mothers, (biological moms, mom-figures, and Mother Nature) our May product of the month is our Intelligent Nutrients Smart Armor Perfume Spray.
