Lisa, owner and proprietor of Lisa’s Hair Shop, couldn’t be more excited about her latest achievement. Having been a small salon owner and hairstylist for 22 years, Lisa’s business savvy and industry experience has propelled her in a fresh direction. In August 2010, she relocated her salon to Northampton Street which offers the benefits of greater visibility, extended hours, and enhanced services provided by a group of talented stylists.
Always a visionary, Lisa takes pride in being a creative hairstylist who listens to her clients’ needs while at the same time considering their hair type, face shape and lifestyle. “I want to craft a cut that’s comfortable for the client and works well on many levels.” Her goal is to make her client’s look and feel good while ensuring a pleasant atmosphere and quality customer service. Petite in stature, Lisa is a fun size, fun loving people person who appreciates the meaningful relationships she builds with her clients. She continues to seek out and participate in opportunities to further her knowledge in the field as it is a source of self-motivation and vital for keeping the salon fresh and up-to-date.
Lisa sums it up, “It’s all about peace, love and hair. When you’ve got that, you’ve got it all!”
After working for top-notch salons in Longmeadow, MA and Virginia Beach, VA, Melanie has returned to her hometown of Easthampton with honed skills in tow. Melanie earned her certificate of cosmetology in 2006 from Springfield Technical Community College. An honor student, she trained under and ultimately worked for the renowned Maureen Bellucci before transferring with her Navy enlisted husband (now reserves) to Virginia Beach. The cutting-edge experience Melanie gained working in upscale, fast-paced salons now melds with the quaintness of her New England roots.
At Lisa’s Hair shop, she has struck a balance where she can have her clients looking and feeling good at an affordable price and without any less professionalism. Trading a go-go-go atmosphere to one that is more relaxed, Melanie loves being able to take the time to really focus on her clients’ needs while also having the time to let her creativity soar. Says Melanie, “I love seeing the transformation of one’s looks and attitude from the time they walk in to the salon until the time they walk out.” Melanie’s services include all aspects of hair, facial waxing, and manicures, including shellac.
Kevin moved to Easthampton in the fall of 2013 bringing 26 years experience. He has worked as an instructor in community colleges, educator for a national product company, and co-owned a large full spectrum holistic day spa. Through these experiences Kevin has learned that everyone's hair is different, and unique, requiring it to be designed to meet the lifestyle and tastes of the individual.
Kevin puts an emphasis on customer service and will help you relax with a smile.
Katherine finished hair school at the Kay Harvey Academy in 2001. She interned at the Underground Salon in Northampton while she was in school and worked there for a short time afterwards. She has lived in and around the Pioneer Valley for her entire career. Some of her favorite things about a long, local career are the relationships that are built with longtime clients (and in some cases, entire families!) She enjoys working with families as they grow and change. She is grateful to have a role in the lives of clients that grow up, go to prom, and leave for college, helping with the image part of those special life transitions.
Katherine loves working with new clients and strives to build long-lasting relationships. She also loves to try new techniques and styles, learn new things, and keep her work fresh and creative.
