Been SO busy at the salon, I haven’t posted any work in a long time! But couldn’t resist this one!! 😍

She was a previously highlighted blonde, and we decided to darken the base and melt down with the mocha color, turned out beautiful!

Gave my girl a little trim and a blowout today! 💇🏼‍♀️💁🏼‍♀️ she’s feeling fresh and loving how soft her hair feels! 💜

Hey guys! I’m still here, I promise!! 😂🤪 Been a little busy the past month, as I’m sure you all know, however, it has been GREAT! Hope you all are enjoying your start to summer, I am! 😍 ☀️

This soon-to-be bride took the first step into going blonder for her wedding! Thanks to some Olaplex and Kevin Murphy cream lightener (which I love) we were able to get her a lot lighter without the damage!! 🥳 Can’t wait for the next session!!

Have an awesome day! 😎

-Kim

[06/13/20]   I just want to give a big big thank you to all my clients, you are all amazing!! The first few weeks back at the salon have been busy, but SO awesome!!! So happy to be back and see all your beautiful faces!! ❤️

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!! 🇺🇸

I believe I have made it through my list of clients to reschedule! If I missed you, I truly apologize and PLEASE get ahold of me! I will get you in!! 🙃

I am now able to start booking anyone that wasn’t previously prebooked for their appointments! If you would like to get in, reach out to me! I would love to see you! ☺️

I am SO looking forward to getting back behind the chair Tuesday! My family and I are headed north thru Sunday, and cell service can be spotty, so please if you don’t hear back from me right away, know I will get back to you ASAP! 😘

See you all SOON!! Thanks for all the support over the past few months everyone, it means the world to me!! ❤️

[05/17/20]   Good morning everyone! I am so excited and happy to announce I will be reopening Tuesday, May 26th!! 😍

As I prepare for reopening, I will be calling to schedule clients in order from March, April and May, so please be patient, you WILL hear from me, it just might take me a bit to get to calling everyone! 😊

I want you all to have a safe and enjoyable visit with me, so I will be following CDC guidelines and implementing procedure and protocol accordingly!

Here are my current guidelines for coming to your appointment:

Please come with clean, dry hair; bring a water bottle or something to drink; and a mask if you have one (I will have masks if you do not! 😊).

When you arrive for your appointment, please call/text to notify me that you are here. I ask that you wait in your vehicle until I let you know I am ready for you! 😉

As you come in for your appointment, I will have you sanitize your hands, and there will be a short questionnaire for you to check over and read before we proceed with your service!

I will be practicing the highest level of safety and sanitation, to ensure a safe and clean atmosphere in my salon as I always have, but you may see a few more steps added to my normal routine, and I will gladly explain to you what I am doing, and why, if you are curious!

I ask if you have even a cold, or are not feeling well, to please reschedule your visit with me, even if it is in less than 24 hours prior to your appointment.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate, let me know! That is what I am here for! Thank you for your patience and understanding through ALL of this, it means so much to me. I am SO EXCITED to see you all again, and to give you all the much needed and deserved pampering you’ve been waiting patiently for! ❤️

See you soon! 😘

Kim

Good morning, everyone! I understand there has been some big changes happening in our state, and I am sure many of you have questions on what that means for me!

As of right now, I am going wait to hear more from our state board and licensing, for what this means for hairstylists, and any other protocols they suggest for us, before I begin to reschedule clients! Please know I will be staying on top of this, and will open as soon as I have more clarity, and have all that I will need to do so! I want to reopen in the safest and smartest way possible!

When that is all clear, I will begin calling clients from March, then April and finally May to reschedule their appointments, please be patient and know I have many many people to get back in, and will do so as timely as possible! I plan to pick up as many extra hours as I can in the first month or so, in hopes of getting back on track and everyone in quickly!

Thank you for your understanding, I will continue to update as I know more! ❤️

Kim

Good Morning! ☀️ In preparation for returning to the salon, I have been working on some online certification courses! 📚

One I consider VERY important right now, is this Barbicide Disinfectant Certification! This is the disinfectant I use in the salon, and have used for years, but I took it upon myself to review the proper guidelines and usage for this product, to assure YOU that I will do my part to keep my salon SAFE and properly disinfected before each and every client! 😊

There will likely be new rules and recommendations that comes with the reopening of salons, and I want you to know, I will be following them closely, and it may change the way I’m used to running my schedule, so I appreciate the patience when that time comes! ❤️

Have a wonderful day! 😚

APPOINTMENT UPDATE:

I know the governor extended the safer at home order until May 26th, and those of you that have appointments in May that I haven’t contacted yet, I will! However, as of right now, I am not rescheduling clients yet, until I know exactly what the phased “reopening” looks like for my profession!! I hope you all understand, and I WILL let you know as soon as possible, and will get you all back in, in the order you all were prior to all of this!! 😉 Stay Well! ❤️

Thank you for your patience,

Kim

Thank YOU for being so wonderful, I can’t wait to see you all again soon! 💕

[03/20/20]   I am sad to announce that as of today, Hair Apothecary will be closing it’s doors until further notice. 😞 I knew it had to be coming, but was waiting until the official word from the governor. This pains me as I just opened a few weeks ago, but I’m hopeful we will get through this, and I’ll be back up and running again soon! Thank you healthcare workers, public safety workers, grocery store employees, and everyone else helping us get the things we need and keeping us safe during this difficult time.

I will be calling clients on my books to confirm the cancellation of their appointments and assure you as soon as I am able, I will get you back in again!

As I have been asked, I am currently working on getting online gift certificates available for purchase if you’d like to purchase one in the meantime for a future appointment, stay tuned for more details on that! Thanks so much!

Peace and love,

Kim Houfe

**Attention Clients!**

First off, I hope everyone is doing alright and hanging in there during this difficult time!! I hate to have to address it, but as a new business owner, I feel it is my duty!

With this Covid-19 (coronavirus) situation changing by the hour, I wanted to give you all an update. As of right now, I have decided to continue taking clients, and am remaining open!

That being said, I am taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of my clients, myself, and our families!

I will be sterilizing and disinfecting all tools and implements as I do according to state health requirements, as well as taking extra time to disinfect all frequently touched objects and surfaces after every client.

I also ask that if you, or someone close to you are suffering from a cough, cold, fever, etc., or if you’ve recently traveled out of state, please get ahold of me ASAP and I will gladly reschedule your appointment for a later date!! I feel it is all of our duty to help in any way we can to slow the spread of this illness, and to keep our loved ones safe, in hopes we all get through this as quickly as humanly possible!

Thank YOU for all your support, us small business owners are worried, and unsure what the future brings, but I believe with proper knowledge, and faith, we will get through this! Wishing you all peace during this time ☮️ and a Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 💚🍀
