“I love the Organic Products that Hair & There offers. They give my hair a beautiful shine! They all are Great Hairdressers, that keeps up to date on the latest styles, and products!” - Jeanne S..
Hair & There originated with Crystal's dream to own her own salon. She loved being in the salon, but found she was also working outside of the salon a lot as well. That is when she came up with incorporating the two. Traveling and having a salon gives everyone a wide variety of choices. The traveling expanded quickly, so she then decided to expand the idea and go into the wedding business. Now she runs a successful business and continues to grow.
To continue to grow in the salon as well as our traveling services. Including our wedding services. I hope to one day be very well know across the local area.
