"My" salon is closing!!! :-(

I just got a notice in the mail today that the salon I've been going to for approximately 2.5 years is closing its doors forever on 31 March & my curly stylist won't be transferring to another salon!!!

She's decided to stay home with her two small children for now. I'm supportive of her choosing that route, but I will miss having someone in the know cut & style my hair.
If you're comfortable with her, maybe you can ask her if she intends to cut hair at home on the side at all. She may want to keep a few clients for some extra income. I've had a few stylists do that. Good luck!

That happened to me too a while back, my stylist actually made her "pin money" from my giant family. Her salon closed and she decided to stay home to spend the last summer with her youngest kid before he started kindergarten. She was able to bring him to our agreed meeting home and did no less than 5 cuts as the trip would not have been worth any less. It worked out for her kid too because we had alot of children/grandchildren for him to keep occupied.

The salon owner had this to say in her letter:

Each stylist will be contacting their clients to let them know of the salon where they will be working.
And my stylist had this to say in her letter, which was sent in the same envelope:

Doing hair and having great friendships and relationships with you has been such a huge part of my life. And although I know that friendship can remain, I will dearly miss being able to talk with you all on a regular basis, and I will miss being able to help you with your hair. My hope someday is to open my own salon. I can only hope that our paths might cross again when that does happen.
So I take this as she won't be doing hair period, until she opens her own business & who knows when that'll be.

I will be contacting her though for curly stylist recommendations. Maybe I'll give her coworker a chance. She's also a curly, though every time I've seen her she has her hair short & straight or in a spiky sort of purposeful messy look.

There is another stylist I'm going to give a chance, though she's a bit of a drive away. She does Deva cuts & comes highly recommended.

The same thing happened to me last July. My stylist called and said she was moving to California. I haven't found a new stylist yet. I have been collecting names from people I see with curly hair at the school I volunteer at, but still haven't gotten up enought nerve to make an appointment. I had gone to Linda for 10 years. The first two at a salon and then the rest to her home. She had a little salon built in the back of her garage, and she charged $19. I was extremely comfortable with her and knew I could trust her not to ruin my hair. Now I am afraid to go anywhere else and pay a lot of money for a haircut that I hate.

I keep hoping she will call and say she has moved back!

Been there, done that! Actually, hubby didn't say much after I told him I used to pay $30 every 9 weeks or so, but now I just paid $88 ($78 each after) but don't need to go back for 4-5 months. And he pays $14 every 6 weeks cuz he still likes a military cut.

So give the deva cut a try.

I will be giving the stylist a try, I was just afraid I'd have to go in every 8 weeks approximately for a reshaping & pay that much each time!

I don't know if it's the same for all, but that's what mine said. From what I read on the boards though, it seems most girls don't need to go back but 2-3 times a year. I hope so!

I went in today to see what deep conditioner I could get on closeout. I came away with Sebastian 2+1. They normally don't carry much of a selection anyhow. I think it's a 16' long by 6' tall rack.

I also wanted to talk with my stylist since she hasn't called me back yet, but she wasn't in. She's only in 2-3 days a week. I just needed a bang trim, & ends & layering check. The only time I could get in is on the day they close for good & the receptionist said my stylist didn't know if she'd come in that day or if she'd do well that day because it might be too emotionally hard on her. I realized just a little while ago that her cutting my hair then might not be a good thing!
