Good Hair from Anywhere

With our beloved salons and spas closed, there’s a good chance you’re in need of a root touch-up, haircut or coloring treatment. Some ingenious hair salons are adapting their businesses, which normally rely on touch, to offer products and services while keeping a safe distance.

Triniti Salon

Clients of Triniti Salon can pick up their favorite products at the shop or have them delivered.

“Product sales is a big deal,” said owner Sharon O’Connor. “I think people forget the impact that it does have.”

The salon is also offering virtual appointments, where clients can ask their stylist questions and advice for their hair.

Customers are also invited to purchase Care Cards, gift cards to give to someone considered an essential worker, so they can have some pampering when the salon is able to open again.

O’Connor is also working to help other small businesses during this time by promoting their products and services in their weekly raffle.

“Our goal is to uplift people’s spirits as much as possible and then focus out,” O’Connor said. “Focusing on the small businesses in the area that we can collaborate with is so important right now.”

Each Saturday at 3 p.m., the salon holds a live raffle drawing via their Facebook page. Tickets are $5, and the money raised helps provide meals for kids who would normally rely on their school cafeteria to eat. Local businesses have donated all sorts of products and services for the raffle winner.

Last Saturday, the salon raised over $2,000 for children’s meals. This week, the goal is $3,500.

Twisted Scizzors

At Twisted Scizzors, anyone can still have appointments online via their virtual salon. These 15-minute sessions, where you can ask all of your hair and beauty questions, are free for current clients.

“We created the Twisted Scizzors Virtual Salon to help our clients during this time when they can’t get into the salon,” said owner Amanda Kimball. “Hair is growing long, roots are coming in. People are overdue for their appointments. We understand. We have overgrown hair and overgrown bangs too.”

So, whether quarantine has you wanting to cut your bangs yourself or the boys need a trim, Twisted Scizzors has you covered. Simply fill out the form and be sure to add your name, email and phone number. The salon will get in touch with you to discuss the appointment further.

If you don’t have specific questions, but need your favorite products to keep looking fresh and styled, Twisted Scizzors is offering their Survival Kit, a customized bag of professional beauty goodies based on your unique needs, preferences and budget.

“We started creating the Survival Kits the first week we were closed,” said COO and lead curl educator Linsey Denevow. “We wanted our clients to make some time for self care during the stay at home order. We had a fabulous response to it so we decided to continue each week that we are closed.”

Gift cards are also available, perfect for Mother’s Day, an upcoming birthday or graduation gift.
