The Top Of The Head

Hairqueen News:  

As I begin my 34th year as a Hair Stylist and my 22nd year as a brick and mortar Business Owner, I am filled with a mixture of doubt and pride!

I am proud of my accomplishments and yet I wonder have I, did I, will I ever do or be, good enough?

There is an Irish saying, "The man at the top of the mountain did not fall there".

On my good days I am so happy at Swans Studios. I love the look and feel of Swans, the mixture of the independent and collegial culture.

I am humbled by my appointment book of long time clients and new clients. The honor of serving my book of business fills me with a deep sense of creative and human satisfaction. 

On my bad days I wonder if I could or should do things differently? I am afraid of becoming stale, jaded, stuck and just as afraid of falling behind as the styles and business practices change. Can I or will I stay up with the trends behind-the-chair and as a business owner?

When will I be at the top of my mountain? Who knows, but for now I will keep climbing. Thank you for joining me on the journey!

Stay tuned for updates and changes as the year goes by.......

Runs Businesses With Scissors:

As the year begins I am planning to get a boost in the right direction by staying organized, as well as refreshing my business look and branding.  

Starting off the year right will make for a more successful 2018!

New Hair, New You! Check Out The Latest 2018 Hair Trends:

Short Styles
Wedged Bobs & Chin Length Shags -
Shorter in the front and longer in the back is the graduated look for bobs. If you prefer a textured cut, add uneven layers and have the perimeter cut even from the front to the back. For a more sophisticated look, try adding long, wispy bangs, and cut your locks so they frame your jawline.


Long Hair Styles
Long Tousled Style or Braids and UpDos


Color Ideas
Natural Color -
The color you’ve always dreamed of having can now be achieved with balayage, a french technique in which highlights are actually “painted” on freehand for a softer color. You can now have a deep mocha with highlights or a soft, baby blonde color that looks completely natural.

Non-traditional Color -
Why not try a rich blend of honey, mocha, and gold for the latest trend? How about a smokey violet color, iridescent peach, or a subtle rose gold with brown hues? It’s always uplifting to do something different with your hair, so why remain stagnant and settle for boring locks?
