Summer Hair Fix

In New England we suffer through the cold, bitter Winter because we know the gift at the end of the season is so worth it!  Summertime is an amazing time in our neck of the woods.  It doesn’t matter if it’s a partly cloudy day  as long as the air is warm, we are ecstatic!  If the sun is shining, watch out, total strangers will walk around with a big grin and want to hug everyone!


Knowing that all we want is to sit and soak up the sun it’s really hard for me to preach to my clients about keeping their beautiful hair protected.  I do try to sneak in some hints here and there though………

1.  Condition, condition, condition!!!!!! Replace the moisture you are stripping.  Finer hair is actually more at risk for damage, so if you’re worried about weighing that hair down, use a detangler containing UV.

3.  Sitting on the beach?  Leave some of that conditioner in your hair or a thick moisturizing oil.

2.  Pool patrol-please get your butt in the pool and enjoy, BUT before you do wet your hair.  If it is filled with delicious clean h2O it’s less likely to absorb all that chlorine that  turns your buttery blonde dingy green.

3.  Cover it up!  Hats are so chic and they come in so many different sizes, shapes and colors, do it!  Same goes for beautiful scarves.627d666eecd707dc1c367b68e453b23dAs your applying the 50+spf, don’t forget that your hair is as fragile as your skin.  Take care of it.  We are amazing stylists, but if you show up with dry, brittle hair we can’t have as much fun with it!

Happy Summer!

It’s our Birthday!

It's our Birthday!

Guru turned 2 on July 5th and to celebrate we’re hosting “Customer Appreciation” nights every Thursday 4-8 for the month of July.
It blows my mind that 2 years has gone by already. The saying “Time flies when you’re having fun” certainly holds true in this case. When you do what you love and surround yourself by good people, you’ll never work a day in your life! Ok enough with the adages!
We are so lucky to have incredibly loyal clients who like us enough to tell their friends and family. We are so appreciative and promise to keep providing you with superior service, products, great conversation and laughs for many more years!


guru spotlight


This is is Jade Woods, she’s been @ guru since October 2012, but I somehow feel like I’ve known her much longer than that. I completely put Jade on the spot by asking her to write a brief bio to be the 1st guru in the spotlight.  Anyone who knows Jade understands that despite her flowing locks of lilac, she doesn’t like or need a spotlight. The small piece of paper she handed me was very factual, not flowery, to the point:

-Been doing hair for 4 years, graduated from Empire Beauty in Portland, Maine,-focus has been on men’s cut’s, but broadened her focus on cutting, coloring and nails since becoming a guru-attended Future Professional Expo in Hersey, PA. where she learned newest trends and techniques and met some of the biggest names in the industry.

This is one of the traits I love about Jade, she’s completely capable and won’t say no to a challenge.  In the 4 years she’s been in the industry she’s sucked up a lot of knowledge and is hungry for more.   She is available for all hair and nail services Wed: 9-2, Thur: 2-8, Fri. 12-8 and Sat. 9-5. She is still building her book of business, so refer your friends!

A few of Jades favorite things:  Dr. Who, Zombies, Sushi, Jack Daniels, Comicon, Fashion, Starbucks
