Stylists Kathy Rawlinson and Amy Lavendar, Stylist and Salon Owner Chrissy Barney (seated).
As owner of Village Salon and Day Spa in Claremore, Chrissy Barney understands that women want and deserve to feel beautiful, and she strives to create an atmosphere where they can have a well-rounded, relaxing experience at the hair salon.
Not only is Village a full service hair salon, offering a complete menu of salon services – cuts (men and children’s cuts are also available), styling, foils, color, extensions, facial waxing, facials, eyelash extensions, and inch loss wraps – but they also offer a full line of mineral makeup, Glo Minerals. This popular makeup line offers all the benefits of mineral makeup with less effort than many other brands, as it can be applied in just one coat without a primer and can be purchased in liquid form.
Clients will also love the Gypsy Girl Boutique, a new and ever-growing part of the Village Salon and Day Spa. Chrissy goes to market every year, searching for stylish articles of clothing and accessories for the boutique section. “We recently added handbags to our selection, and I’m always looking for new things,” says Chrissy. “It just keeps growing and growing and growing!”
Chrissy also has plans to host an online store in the future, and clients will be able to purchase gift certificates through the site.
But even an online presence will surely not stop people from wanting to live the full salon experience at Village Salon and Day Spa.
“We’ve decorated in colors that are both soothing and cheerful,” says Chrissy. “We strive for an atmosphere that is welcoming and relaxed, yet professional.”
Chrissy has been in the salon industry for 18 years. She started in Wagoner and came to work at Village three years ago. She bought the salon in November of 2012 and has loved being a part of its growth. “I like talking to and being with people,” she says with a smile. “I wouldn’t want to do anything else.”
The Village Salon and Day Spa is open Monday through Saturday. Early and late appointments are available, and walk-ins are always welcome to accommodate today’s busy lifestyle.
