Melisa is a Snippin’ Sister

We’ve got more inside information with this week’s Snippin‘ Sisters segment! This week, we’re taking a look at another new family member. Say hello to Melisa! This Panama native has lived in Corydon since 1996 with her husband. But now that her son is out of the house, she’s looking to move closer to the shop and all the excitement that’s happening in Southern Indiana.  
Melisa is one of our estheticians. As such, she specializes in skin care and makeup. In fact, Melisa has done work with fashion designers on photo shoots! She’s also bringing microblading and eyelash extensions to the table.  
“I love the skin,” Melisa says, “anything that has to do with beauty. Things that make people feel good in general, and I feel like this industry calls for that. You have to have fun and be able to cheer people up.” 
But makeup is really her specialty. Thanks to her creative streak, she’s able to do some amazing work! “It’s like a canvas. When we start, we talk about the occasion and what you’re wearing, as well as what goes well with your skin. And as I get going, it just keeps evolving into something else until you get to the final work.” 
She jokes about her habit of talking while she’s working. But don’t worry, you don’t have to answer! She’s just making decisions and thinking out loud to help get those creative juices flowing! Although she’s a self-proclaimed “late bloome r,” Melisa is one driven lady and says that continued learning is her ultimate ambition. Which is just one reason why we love her

Snippin’ Sisters: Say Hello to Danielle!

We’re keeping the fun rolling with our Snippin‘ Sisters segment! This week, we’re taking a look into Miss Danielle! She’s our newest family member, but she’s already making waves here at Strandz & Threadz.  The first thing you’ll notice with Danielle is her bubbly personality. Even if you’re not in to see her specifically, she’s got a megawatt smile that’ll make you feel right at home. And that comfy-cozy feeling is precisely why she joined our team. Although Danielle’s only been with us for about two months, she knew from the minute she stepped through our door that she wanted to work here.  
 
“I shadowed here, because I went to school with Amber, and the sisters are so sweet! Everybody is so family oriented; it just feels like home. Julie sold me on the place; she’s never met a stranger and that’s exactly how I am. Because of that, I knew this is where I need to be.”  

This sweet lady offers a wide variety of services and can do everything from manicures to perms. Her skills also include men’s cuts and  beard trimming/shaping. But, natural colors are her favorite service.  
She can even take you to platinum blonde! “This girl came in and wanted to go platinum. She had brown hair, but I took her there in four and a half hours… She was like, ‘Oh my god I love it!’ And I said, ‘Me too!’ and it was amazing.” 
Danielle’s a self-proclaimed country girl. She enjoys fourwheeling, bonfires and attends truck and tractor pulls. She’s happily raising her fur-babies – a pomeranian, Snow Bell, and a cat named Cooper – in her first home in Salem, Indiana. Although it’s 50 minutes to get to Strandz & Threadz just to hang out with us, she doesn’t hate it. “I don’t dread coming to work,” she says, “The girls here are great. They make it worth it.”

Snippin’ Sisters: Meet Amy!

Let’s be honest, we wouldn’t be Strandz & Threadz without the wonderful ladies that make up our work family! These ladies take care of all your salon and spa needs, and they’re the drive behind everything we do. That’s why we’re happy to introduce our newest blog segment, “Snippin’ Sisters”. In these pieces, we’re going to give you a highlight of each of our employees so that you can feel confident coming in and booking their services. Our first Snippin’ Sister is Miss Amy.

Amy has been with Strandz & Threadz for three years now, but has been providing cosmetology services for 13 years. Little known fact? She used to be a teacher at the Empire Beauty School. If you need something new, than Amy is the lady to see! Her skills include tape in hair extensions for those tired of waiting for their locks to break free of the awkward inbetween stage (click here for 5 reasons you should try them), and providing you with fashion colors. So she’s the chick with the chic colors to brighten up your palate. Blues, purples, pinks – oh my!

Even though she lives in Bullet County, Kentucky, Amy crosses the river to hang out with us during the week. But when she’s not at S&T, you can find her hanging out with her fiancé, six-year-old daughter, Aubrey, and nine-month-old baby boy, Zane.

“I’m pretty much an open book.” Amy says, “My evenings consist of laundry and cooking, and when I’m here [at Strandz & Threadz] it’s hair. I work out two to three times a week and I hang out with my family.”

Amy’s also working out the details to bring spray tanning services to S&T! But she admits that out of all the services we provide, she won’t do nails. “I’m absolutely awful,” she jokes, “I can do it but it’d take me twice as long as the other girls.”

Yet with all the other amazing services she provides, this ma’am definitely gives us a fun edge to our salon!

A Nod to the 90’s

It’s time for another flashback! Back to some of the best romantic comedies ever produced; when Fruitopia had their own drink machines and your kid wanted every known school supplies product created by Lisa Frank. That’s right folks, we’re headed back to the 90’s!
Grab that yellow Tupperware pitcher with the push button lid, slip on a choker and dig out the beanie baby collection because we need your helpWe want to see all those glorious photos from this decade that you have hidden away from polite company! Send us your photos via a private message on our Facebook page and be entered to win a gift card with an AVEDA Product bag.  
Yeah…we definitely needed some hair therapy after all the crazy things we did to our luscious locks! 
Crazy hair colors like Milla Jovovich’s tangerine locks in “The Fifth Element” really took off in the 90’s! Crimping came on the scene thanks to Wayne’s World, and Gwen Stefanie rocked electric blue raver buns on the top of her noggin. Those of us with a little less enthusiasm for the color wheel had enough scrunchies to keep even Cher’s curls in check. That, or we went with the timeless Hair Flip that the Olsen Twins perfected. 
*romantic sigh* Don’t you just miss this decade? 
So be sure to stop by on Thursday, June 29th for our party where we’ll reveal all our 90’s memorabilia and have famous appetizers and drinks from the decade! Can’t make it? Come by any time during the day to see the girls dressed in their favorite 90’s attire. We can’t wait to see you!

Don’t get your tinsel in a tangle: How Strandz and Threadz can banish holiday stress

xmas-stress“‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring, but a mother busting her butt trying to make sure everything was perfect for every body.”- someone on Pintrest.  If this isn’t the truth. We hear it all the time; we need to take care of ourselves or we will end up with nothing left to give. This is everyone not just mothers. Dads may be working extra hours. Grandparents are stressing over gifts for possibly many grandchildren. College students are traveling maybe long distances to multiple places. There are people stressing over being alone during the holidays. At Strandz we offer so many services and products at all price points that will really make a difference in how you feel through the holiday season. Let us help you take care of yourself.

THE EFFECTS OF STRESS ON THE HAIR AND BODY

Most of us know that stress affects our mind body and soul. It has real physical symptoms including aches and pains, heartburn/digestive issues, high blood pressure, immune system problems, susceptibility, sleep problems and the list can go on. According to the Mayo clinic having long term chronic stress can lead to a disruption in just about all your systems leaving you susceptible to chronic illness.

As  stylists we can tell if someone has been under stress sometimes before the client realizes it. We can tell by your hair. Prolonged stress can cause Alopecia Areata, loss of circular clumps of hair. The physical effects of stress listed above have direct effects on your hair. When you come in with hair that is thinner, maybe dry and lifeless we can offer help! We always suggest seeing a Doctor when we notice changes in your hair, but here are the things we can offer you to de-stress. you don’t just want to make it through, but enjoy the holiday season. This season is about joy, love, peace, hope and restoration after all.
