Shop Small Day 203: Versed Salon

With as happy as it makes me feel, you'd think I would get my hair cut more often. But, 2-3 times a year is usually all I make it. Since I was long past due, and a new place just opened in town, I figured I'd check out Versed Salon.

imageIt must have been fate, though, guess who cut my hair...

No, not THE Ryan Reynolds, but "my" Ryan Reynolds was pretty cool too!

I actually didn't even notice his last name until I looked at his business card tonight. I can guarantee I won't forget it though.

imageVersed Salon opened a couple of months ago by a group of stylist friends. They've all been in the business 7-10 years and have worked together at various locations, but figured it'd be great to work together.

Thus, Versed Salon was created.

That's Ryan in the back tatted up!

Since there was nothing previously in this space, they did a great job building it out. The exposed brick and open ceiling feels more urban chic than suburban.
I don't know any of the other stylists, but I would definitely see Ryan again.

After a brief consultation, he gave a great scalp massage while shampoo/conditioning my hair. Heaven.

I love that he understood that I simply wanted a great haircut- I'm not going to spend 15 minutes styling it- let alone 45. Most days it doesn't even get blown dry.

And, I really enjoyed that he didn't try to sell me a bunch of products I would never use.

There's still very little in this strip mall, so give them a visit and tell Ryan that I sent you- I think you get 20% off your first appointment!
