March is coming to a close, spring is here, and we are ready! Spring is one of my favorite times of the year because everything feels so new and fresh and if it’s not, we change it so it is! For us here at CUT spring also signifies the beginning of prom and wedding season.
Julianne and I got an opportunity this year to take a class at ARROJO in March called Editorial Styling. Danielle also took this class twice she loved it so much! The basis of this class is to learn the secrets of how to achieve high fashion styles and looks for runway and photo shoots. And we werent learning from just anyone! Paul Merritt, who helped teach the class, is an industry veteran who has worked on everyone from Gisele to Jennifer Lawrence. He has also done countless photo shoots and runway shows from Fendi to Michael Kors. Also teaching the class were two of Arrojo’s top stylists Aziza Razulova and Alex Efstratiou, who deal with high profile, trend setting New Yorkers on a daily basis. From countless different updo techniques to fresh new braids for 2017, we are fully informed and ready to take on any styling situation on or off the runway and bring it to you here at CUT.
Prom appointments are booking up fast already so make sure you schedule now for your spring and summer weddings and parties. If you’re not sure what you want, Pinterest or Instagram some pics and we can discuss all of the options. We also spent a lot of time talking about hair pieces and extensions to achieve certain looks that may seem impossible. Make sure you come in for a consult if you think this is something that may interest you! I can’t wait to see the ideas we come up with! Happy Spring!
Happy New Year from the CUT fam!
There is nothing like the promise of a New Year, with so many possibilities. Here at CUT we are all constantly growing and changing. When you step outside of your comfort zone is when growth happens. It’s okay though, because it can be really awesome and exciting to push your limits.
2017 is all about taking risks. In each facet of your life there is room for change. One of the most fun things you can change is of course, your hair.
“A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life” said the lovely Coco Chanel. Truer words have never been spoken, and of course changing your hair color goes right along with cutting it.
Nervous or unsure of what to do? Why would I change my hair if I’m happy with it now? Book a consultation! We would love to see you and chat for a few minutes about different options. Coming from us, you’re getting an unbiased professional opinion, and we have so much fun doing so. For those of you that don’t like change, I urge you this year to open your mind to all the possibilities and take a leap of faith. I know you won’t regret it.
Whether it be in your personal, work, family, or hair life – change is good to embrace! Step out!
Lots of love in the New Year! Xo
Where did the time go? We say that every year. As I count down the days to 2017, I can’t believe it’s actually here! I’m so grateful for so many things this past year. It’s been a roller coaster of events both inside and outside of the business. Mostly for good!
We had to say goodbye to one of our designers, who had been with us from the beginning, Jess. As many of you know, she traveled from Redbank which is over an hour commute. We were so thankful for the time she put in at CUT for the last three years and are happy she’s working closer to home full time, bought a new home, and is expecting her first child! So although we miss her dearly, we’re excited for her changes!
The girls here at CUT are all developing well too. Julianne got married and bought a home this year. Lauren was able to move into a new home with her daughter. Peach and Danielle launched a new business in the coffee realm. Peach is roasting coffee in Pittstown and is loving every moment of it. (Although he misses your faces!) Check out his new endeavor at hero-incoffee.com Everything is so exciting for everyone.
As you may have noticed, we have been in loads of education- our entire team. Gillian and Peach attended some business classes while the designers attended some serious hands on classes. Danielle also had the opportunity to participate in another photo shoot this past month for some winter looks.
When you come to the studio you may notice some changes with photos, and some new tile work, amongst other things, to gear us up for the new year!! We will have some exciting things to come as well, but you’ll have to wait to hear those little details 😉
Please take note that at the beginning of the new year our prices will reflect the ones that are on our menu here online. Prices are always subject to change, but we strategically price ourselves to not only be competitive within the industry, but also due to inflation of product cost, materials, and cost of living. This is also how our designers and team get promoted, so we’re excited to have the girls move up to their new elite status’ ! Congratulations to Lauren for becoming a new elite cutter, and to Julianne for becoming a new elite colorist. It’s really been wonderful seeing all their training and hard work pay off!
Stay tuned for some exciting news, raffles, events and more! We love you guys, and are looking forward to this new year with you.
I am honored and humbled to say we’re celebrating four years of being open on October 16th. As we’ve been toasting with our clients this week with champagne and mimosas, I have been getting the question of “Does it feel like its been four years?”. I don’t have an answer for that. In some aspects the time flew by because its really a great atmosphere here. Theres so much love and unity throughout the team that everyone clicks so well and makes the hours fly by as if you’re not even “working”.
However, on the other end of that question, we’ve been so blessed these last few years that its hard to believe we can accomplish so much in such a short amount of time! I am just sitting back, reflecting and feeling grateful for all of our clients who have supported us throughout the years, who tell their friends about us and are so proud to be here! Thank you to all of you! We couldn’t be where we are without you.
We are also excited because Arrojo Expo is next weekend. It is the single biggest education weekend Arrojo offers and our entire team will be going into the city to experience it. This year Peach will be a guest speaker for Nick as he talks about business! This is a really cool accomplishment and we are honored to have such an opportunity. All the designers will be doing a hands on cut/color/texture/style seminar over the course of two days. Stay tuned for some serious inspiration!
Beginning of November we have Emily Costello coming in and doing a hands on hair cutting class with us. She’s someone we all admire the work of, and we can’t wait to get a glimpse into her head and how she creates hair designs! So to say we will have lots of inspiration going into this Holiday season would be an understatement.
Looking forward to serving you through the rest of 2016 and many years to come! Thanks for your support!
