Summer Hello

Hairqueen News:

Gosh the year is flying by!  And, as probably can be predicted life for me is the same and different.  For the first half of this past year I was swept up in wedding fever, my daughter was married on June 3, yippee!

It was a new experience for me to be the mother of the bride and a member of the wedding party, rather than one of the hair stylists busily preparing the bride and the wedding party for the big day.

Speaking of Summer: 

  • Are you ready for a summer cut and color? 
  • Is it time to go short and sassy for the long summer days?  
  • How about a few highlights or lowlights, or a splash of bold color just for fun? 

Did you hear that the perm is back?  

I did loads of perms in the 80’s; so I’m your girl if you need a curl or two!  And, I can offer the opposite, how about smoothing out those natural waves for a smoother less bulky head of hair? 

Let’s consult!  To book an appointment; or contact me at 510-545-2955.  


Promotion Of The Month:


Runs Businesses With Scissors:

Are you a business owner?

First breathe, then pat yourself on the back for making it to the mid point of the year.  

Earlier this year my marketing person resigned for personal reasons.  I took a marketing break for a few months.  I recently started working with a new marketing assistant, Sara; we have planned out the next three months of salon promotions, reviewed my social media strategy and set up our next quarterly meeting.  I cannot do this part alone.  

Now that Sara is handling this area of my business I can focus on the remainder of the year and the who, what, why, where, how and when I can grow my businesses.

Thank goodness Swans Studios is going strong, yet it is also the same and different. 

This past January, La Tasha Lathen joined us.  La Tasha is a curly hair expert, check out her website,

Our other stylist, Marisa and I are staying the course for now, enjoying our wonderful clients and the stability of many years behind-the-chair.  So I know what that means, this is the time for me to take stock and plan for the remainder of 2017. 

I need a team.  My team consists of my coach, my virtual assistant, my salon assistant and my colleagues.  Who’s on your team?  I’d love to hear about your situation today.  

To book a Consulting Appointment, email me at or call me at 510-545-2955.

Till next time,  I do hope you are planning to take some time off over the summer.  It is important to recharge our batteries before the busy Fall and Holiday Seasons.  

Stay cool and enjoy the sun!
