Soak in the Summertime

When each season arrives, I often declare it’s “my favorite time of year” but I think I feel most strongly about this in summer. 

There’s something about the warm (ok, hot) air, endless days, and fireflies sparkling in the night sky that just makes everything seem a bit more carefree. The rules seem more relaxed; weekends seem to go on forever; people just seem happier- lighter- this time of year.  

As a kid, summers seemed to last forever, yet as an adult they seem to fly by. This summer being McKenna’s last summer before college is especially meaningful to me. I know my days with her are getting fewer and fewer, and I plan to maximize every last opportunity to spend time with her- knowing, when the next season comes (my favorite, of course), she’ll be starting a new chapter in her life as a college student. 
To all of you who will spend the summer with your babies- or grandbabies- whether they’re 6 months, 6, or 16- enjoy the sunsets, the ice cream cones, the lazy pool days- because it goes by in the blink of an eye.






Never underestimate the power of passion.
– Eve Sawyer


More than eleven years ago, I founded Ivy from my passion to create a first-in-class salon, where the true art and professionalism of hair care could be nurtured and shared within a friendly – almost family-like – ambiance.


Ultimately, our mission at Ivy is to offer a superior salon experience, in every sense of the word. We do this by offering:


  • The region’s highest educated team of stylists whose talents we continually develop and reward;
  • AVEDA – an amazing corporate and community partner, with innovative all-natural, botanical based product lines;
  • A sense of client care with which we have served more than 4,500+ unique customers and counting.


Today, many of our clients have come to describe Ivy as a haven, a sanctuary where they can enjoy a bit of down time as we take care of them. Indeed, Ivy’s exceptional experience has become one of our hallmarks. I invite you to try Ivy today. You deserve the best, and we aim to provide it.
