Salon, under new ownership, expands offerings

February 14, 2007

A relaxing spa experience will soon be available in Basehor.

Not only is Classy Cuts Too Salon just off of U.S. Highway 24-40 under new ownership, but it is also awaiting a facelift.

Owner Debra McDonnell said the salon, which is not necessarily known for its spa treatments such as facials and massages, is ready to step up and become a bigger player in a competitive market.

"We have an excellent business as it is, but I'd really like to start doing things that will help repay our current customers," McDonnell said.

Within the next few weeks, the atmosphere of the salon will be transformed and several cosmetic changes will occur. McDonnell said the staff will be emphasizing spa treatments such as manicures, pedicures, facials and massages, as well as its cut and color services.

"There really isn't anything that we don't do," McDonnell said. "The girls are very updated on current techniques for color, and we have a full range of nail services, facials and massages."

The trained staff of six already attends continued education classes and hair shows to stay up-to-date on current styles and techniques, but McDonnell said they will start going to different classes on a more regular basis. The salon is also looking to hire a few more stylists to join the team.

"We plan to expand a little bit as far as employee wise," she said. "We're going to put some feelers out for a few more experienced stylists. We have a great group of girls that all have different things to offer, but they are all really good."

With spring just around the corner, McDonnell said the salon is planning some promotions and gift packages so customers can skip the drive to Kansas City and enjoy an entire range of salon and spa services in Basehor. Other plans include product promotions for different hair care lines.

"We want people to know that they're getting a good deal when they come in and purchase here," McDonnell said.

A grand re-opening is scheduled for mid-March and all the services will be priced right, McDonnell said.

"We don't have any intention of raising prices," she said. "We want to provide the same good quality service that we already have provided at the same price. We'll continue to build on what we have."
