What a year 2019 has been so far!
It's nearing July which will mark one year since my last Price Revision. I am sure you have noticed all the big changes that have happened with Salon 705 since last July. The biggest by far being the opening of the new larger location, hiring of staff as well as some new amenities like our house made lattes, new retail products available and completely redesigned website.

Therefore, starting July 1st, 2019 due to high demand, I will be implementing a Price Revision for my services. I am doing this so that I can spend the perfect amount of time with each client to focus on your unique needs. I also hope to make appointments more available to you as my clients so that you can get the dates you prefer.
I hope this advance notice will serve …

Our car dramatically decreased in speed and my husband did a quick U-turn causing me to startle awake. Our headlights were now shining on a man climbing out of his overturned car with blood covering one arm.

We helped wrap his arm (thank goodness for the clean t-shirt I had in the back of my car) and my USMC Veteran husband did a quick tourniquet to stem the blood flow as we waited for emergency services to arrive. Thankfully the…
