Hosting a benefit for Rapunzel Project Feb. 16
It’s been a long time coming for Tara Witt, and she’s excited to be the new owner of Hair Taylors, at 4633 14 Mile Road, in the Cedar Rock area, behind Cedar Rock Café.
“I knew I always wanted to be a salon owner, and when the opportunity arose, I nabbed it,” explained Witt, who has 10 years of experience as a hair stylist, and has worked at the salon since 2006. She took over as owner of the salon just this month. The previous owner was Dawn Roberts.
Witt has already updated the interior, which gave the salon a high-end atmosphere, to reflect the type of services they provide. “We offer customers high end services without the high end price tag,” she explained.
Hair Taylors offers all types of hair services, as well as waxing, manicures and pedicures, medical massage, and organic spray tanning. They specialize in corrective coloring, for those who have had a bad hair-coloring job, whether at home or with another salon. They currently employ eight stylists and one massage therapist.
On Saturday, February 16, they will hold a benefit for the Rapunzel Project from 3 to 6 p.m. The Rapunzel Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping cancer patients keep their hair during chemotherapy through the use of cold cap technology. Patients wear a cold cap on their head before, during and after chemotherapy, which cools the scalp and helps hair not to fall out. During the benefit, stylists will do haircuts for a minimum $10 donation.

Regular business hours are Monday through Thursday 9 to 8, Friday 9-7, and Saturday 9 to 4. For more info or to make an appointment, call 696-2096.
