Monthly Newsletter-September 2013

My favorite month has now arrived!! SEPTEMBER!!!!!!!!!!! It’s my birthday month! I try to wrap my brain around this being my last year in my twenties. WOW! That’s awesome! I really can’t wait to be 30. Weird, I know. I look at all the things I have accomplished in my twenties….what’s in store for me in my thirties? #moregoodthingstocome

Anywho…I am so ready for the temperatures to cool off just a little bit. It’s so uncomfortable to go outside and feel like you haven’t showered in days! I wanted to talk about different ways to wear a ponytail in this monthly newsletter because I feel it fits perfect for these hot temperatures. Who doesn’t want to throw their hair up when the temps are this HOT!?

I am going to touch base on 5 of my favorites ponytail do’s from a post on buzzfeed.com. Click here to get the full article.

You will want to read the full article on buzzfeed.com. There is so many great ideas to spice up your boring ponytail. They even have some tutorials on how to make that look happen! These hairstyles would work great even on day two hair. With already having product in your hair, your style is going to last that much better than day one. (please tell me you DO NOT wash your hair every day…right?! O.K. good!)

We had a great turnout for our 1st Semi-Annual Clearance Sale!! We still have a few items left on the clearance table and the prices are so ridiculously cheap I hate to even tell you how little you will be paying! Stop up and see what bargains we have left!

dont wait2

With this above quote, I have to share a funny thing with you. Last Sunday when the Culpepper and Merriweather Circus came to Pocahontas, I had to work the 2 pm show. The Pocahontas County Young Professionals (I am co-chair on that board) along with the Pocahontas Chamber arranged the Circus to be able to come to town. I volunteered my time to work the first shift. I thought back to when I had the Carnival at Cuts to Dye For for the Laurens’ town celebration 2 years ago. Yep, that clown outfit I had my sister wear…..I thought why not dig it out. I didn’t tell anyone that I was going to do this, because it was a last minute decision. WHY NOT? I already had to be there to work the 2 pm session. My kids were coming to the 4:30 pm session. So why not have fun while I choose to be there working. If you weren’t one of the 596 tickets we sold….you missed out! “Don’t wait, the time will never be just right”–In my head I said that; and in turn made the decision to wear the clown outfit. It was a great time! Cheers!

Monthly Newsletter-April 2013

5 year3

April marks a special time here at Cuts to Dye For.  April is the month that I started doing business here at this location.  BEST. DECISION. EVER. MADE.  Wow, 5 years have gone by already.  Yes. Five.  Hard to believe isn’t it!?  I sit and think about it and it truly amazes me.  Sometimes you just have to give yourself a pat on the back for how far you have come.  I really can’t imagine myself any different from what I’m doing right now and where this path has led me.  Do any of you remember when I first opened up, I believe I maybe had about 25 items total retail items (besides product) in my store.  Now-a-days, the retail items are endless.  I want to say thank you.  THANK YOU. Thank you to all of you who believed in me and stepped into this journey with me.  With out all of you I wouldn’t be as successful as I am today.

Time for a new ‘do?

Are you thinking you might be in the mood for a new haircut?  The asymmetrical haircut is always a good one to try if you have medium to short hair.  There isn’t many people who it doesn’t look good on.  Here is a little bit about that haircut.

Asymmetric Hairstyles…
Will They Work For You
Asymmetric hairstyles are exactly what they sound like, where one side is different from the other.  They can be asymmetrical from one side to the other, or from front to back.  One asymmetrical hairstyle is the bob. The asymmetrical bob hairstyles are some of the most modern and stylish haircuts for those who have short to medium length hair.
Asymmetrical hairstyles will add edginess to your style.  Look at Victoria Beckham, well-known as a Spice Girl and for being married to David Beckham, heart throb throughout the world.  Victoria changes her hairstyle on a very regular basis, but she favors bob hairstyles, and we’re not talking traditional bobs, totally even all around.  Victoria brings to the common bob a true adventurous style, by turning it into an inverted bob.
An inverted or concave bob is cut short at the back of the neck and becomes longer toward the face, creating an asymmetrical shape. This cut is also known as a stacked or wedge bob, a style that is perfect for people with very straight, fine hair. It is usually layered to create volume and provides an illusion of fullness often difficult for people with this type of hair.
A good cut is essential for this style to work, but is surprisingly easy to maintain once you know how. Watch us carefully how to work with your haircut and we can teach you how the best way to blow out this style is and what products you need to keep its shape throughout the day.

katies new do

Speaking of a new do…..Last week I gave Katie a new Haircut.  It looks AWESOME!  One thing I want to say about this is HOLY FACEBOOK.  On our Cuts to Dye For’s Facebook page, I can see how many people view everything that I post.  Let’s just say Katie is going GLOBAL!  I posted a picture of her before/after on our page shortly after I cut her hair.  Within the first 8 hours of posting it, there were 2,180 views.  WHAT!?!?  NO WAY!?!  We have never had that many views on anything we have posted!  Talk about AWESOME!  I just looked on our page again and right now its up to 2,840 views.  CRAZINESS!  Let me remind you we only have 291 people who “LIKE” us on Facebook!  Think of what the numbers would have been if we had even 500 “likes” on Facebook!  Tell everyone you know to “like” us and when we get to 500 likes, we will give away a PRIZE!
