Short Cuts for 2016!

Happy Holidays everyone! We here at Charisma Salon want you to start your new year off right with a new look! Turn some heads in 2016 with a shorter cut that will show off the new you! We know that winter can be the perfect time to try something new and 2016 is poised to be the year of the short cut according to many stylists and from what we saw on the runway in 2015.

We know that going under the scissors can be intimidating and sometimes scary. We’ll make sure that your hairstyle is going to work well with your hair’s texture and your personal style. We want you to take your short hair cut and let you rock it out and feel great doing it. We can help you pick the right products for your new hair style, how to work it with your hair’s natural texture, and different styling options you have with your new do.

Age is just a number

Who has ever said you have to be young to look good with short hair? Even if you have mature hair, we can get you looking great with a short cut. 2016 is setting up women of a certain age to look hip, younger, and more spunky. We’ve seen short spiked looks, the wispy pixie look, and our favorite is the choppy bowl cut that was sported on the runway this year. We know that older women’s hair sometimes can need a spruce up, we recommend checking out one of our deep oil treatments to help give your hair a little more life!

Don’t want to commit to a super short look? The other big trend from the runway in 2015 was the messy bangs. Shaggy fringe bangs are going to be a top hit in spring of 2016  so you should be on that list as well.

We can help you achieve any look you’re going for in 2016. We’ve helped women from all over the Metro Detroit area get their look together, from Livonia, Farmington to St. Clair Shores and every where in between. If you want to get your new look for 2016 going, we can help!

Tribute to Dolly

Remembering an Incredible Woman

Dolly Ettenhoeffer

It is with heavy heart, and much sadness that I am writing this. There are no amount of words that can describe who Dolly was, because she was so many different things, to so many different people. It seems that only in death can we begin to see just how much of an impact she has had on so many. Dolly’s passion for life and everything she did shone out of her like the brightest summer day.  I’ve never met anyone like her. To me, she was a mentor; someone that believed in me more than just about anyone else in this world. To you she may have been your hairdresser, confidante, encourager, rock, teacher, and if you were lucky even your herbalist. This woman had so many different passions it’s pretty mind boggling. From hair, to quilting, to fitness, and as we all know her passion for holistic living. There has always been a little joke at our salon that if Dolly ever asks you how you are you better respond with “Dolly I’m wonderful.” and mean it, or she had just the thing to make you feel better. Anything from peppermint oil, to a mustard and Cayenne bath, she was sure her remedies would fix you right up. Even though she did all of these amazing things in her free time, what was even more special about Dolly was her generous, giving nature. She was passionate about people above all else.  Many people were fortunate enough to receive handmade, heartfelt gifts from both Dolly, and her husband Mike. She truly devoted her entire life to bringing joy to others. I believe she was the closest thing to an angel on earth that you can get. I am forever grateful to have had the opportunity to not only know, but love this incredible woman.

Thank you for loving and sharing,
For giving and for caring,
God bless you and keep you,
Until we meet again.


Please join us in remembering her life.
