Redos! Wanna know why I love them? They are a sign of great communication between client and stylist!

This is my beautiful client Brittany! She came in to go darker last week, and we loved the outcome. She texted me yesterday to let me know that her hair had already faded a ton! Sometimes this happens when a blonde goes darker, even if we fill the hair shaft, the color can still fall out. I told her I had a last minute cancellation today and to come on in. I adjusted my lowlight formula and we balayaged her money pieces to be a bit brighter. Brittany’s redo didn’t cost her anything, because last week she paid for the hair she walked out with today! We had a great conversation about this while she was in the chair. My clients are my walking billboards, and my entire job is to make people LOVE their hair. Why would I expect my clients to refer me, or support my business and my craft if they don’t love their hair every time they leave, or worse; they do, but it only lasts a week? It’s hard to tell your stylist something is wrong with your hair, but I was happy when Brittany did because it means she feels comfortable and trusts me as her stylist! 💕

hey everyone! as a lot of you know i’ve been in arizona for treatment. I’ve done exceedingly well here and so because of that and other reasons, my husband and I have decided to move to phoenix, AZ. We’ll be returning to pack our things but The Girl With Shears location in tulsa will be closed effective immediately. I’m going to miss all of you immensely. I cant even begin to thank all of my clients and friends and family there who have supported me. I have big plans for phoenix so I hope you’ll all stick around to watch my next adventure!

05/12/2021

Hi everyone! just an update! I am leaving for medical treatment in Arizona tomorrow and will be out of the state for the next 6 weeks or so. I look to be back taking clients at the beginning of July. So my books will be closed until then. if anything changes of course I will update! Thank you all for your support!

05/02/2021

Hey everyone! I have a few things to announce and discuss!

As some of you may know I’ve been dealing with some health issues recently. This has definitely thrown some wrenches into the way I run the studio and how many clients I see. In order to cater a bit more to my health, I’ve decided to reduce the number of available appointments each week.

Along with this I also had to make the difficult decision to leave Maven Salons and transition the studio into an add on studio at my home. I want to thank Tabitha & Emily for being amazing studio managers and for being so kind and understanding with this transition. Everyone at Maven is so incredibly talented as well as are they kind, warm individuals.

Unfortunately due to the health issues themselves it is a possibility that my books will close completely although temporarily in the next few weeks or so while I seek more involved care. Of course if this happens any clients on the books will be notified promptly.

I appreciate all of my client’s understanding during all of this, and I’m working diligently to make sure this transition goes as smoothly as possible and that the pieces of the Girl With Shears studio that you all know and love are preserved in this new space. Check out the new space so far below! Thank you! 🖤✨

I know it’s very frustrating to not be able to get in as soon as possible. This is why i’m trying to be transparent about my books and help each of you to get in or at least get on my books before they close. if you’ve wanted to be a client of mine for awhile but don’t necessarily have the funds for big hair change, that’s okay. please book a haircut or even a treatment and style so that you are at least on the books! if you reach out to me to say “hey I want to get on your books but I don’t have a lot to spend right now, what can we do?” that’s %100 okay! we will figure something out. I do not want people who have wanted to come in for awhile, miss out because the books close!

04/20/2021

hi everyone! I wanted to make this post for any news clients and also my existing clients. I am staying booked out about 2-3 weeks as of right now. I strongly encourage you to pre-book during your appointments so that you have a spot for your next appointment or reach out to me a couple of weeks in advance of when you’re wanting your service done. I can always add you to a cancellation list as well. if this trend continues I will be closing my books to new clients. if you’d like to become a client I highly encourage you to reach out to me to see what we can do to at least get you in my books before they close! as always thank you all for your love and support! 🖤✨

holy transformation Batman! Carly is rocking a caramel balayage on a fresh cut 😍

Carly was super realistic with her expectations of her first visit, having had previous red color through the mids and ends and experimented with cutting her own bangs during quarantine. She was upfront about her hair history and we game planned a beautiful way to add some blonde! I will never shame you for playing with your OWN hair at home! As long as I know exactly what I’m working with, we can figure out how to reach your goals the quickest, safest and most cost effective way. Thanks for coming in Carly!

peach punch!!

I wanted to get on here quickly to make another announcement. Starting April 1st service prices at the studio will be going up! I will follow up soon with a detailed list of the new pricing. If I have already given you a quote for a future service your service price will not be affected by this change, however any future appointments will be.

This price change comes with new product lines that are cleaner, more eco-friendly and I believe are better for my clients. If you have any questions as always feel free to reach out to the business line at 918-845-5971! 🖤✨

Khaleesi // I’m still on vacation but I do have sisters who need their hair done 🤪

03/20/2021

Hi everyone! today is the first day of my vacation! i’m so excited to get to spend time with family while i’m away. please be patient with my responses until April 2nd when i’ll be back in the studio. I appreciate all of you! 🖤✨

03/19/2021

Hi everyone! This is a pretty difficult post to make. I’ve been making some changes to the service menu at the studio the past few months, and i’ve slowly been phasing out blonding appointments that require foils. I no longer book these appointments. Foiling techniques are not something I enjoy, and I don’t practice them enough to be the best stylist for that service. It’s taken me a long time and a lot of hard thinking to make this decision but I truly don’t want to offer a service that wouldn’t end up being the best outcome I could give.
I’m more than happy to recommend some amazing stylists that specialize in foiling techniques such as Brynlee Johnson, For the Love of Hair, Kambree Farley Stylist, and many more!

I do still offer balayage services, as well as platinum all over blonding. if you question wether a service falls under foiling, balayage or all over blonde please reach out and i’d be happy to discuss it with you! thank you for your understanding and support!

I’m feeling better and I’m in the studio today! I had some free time so I decided to throw some orange & yellow on my freshly trimmed mullet. I said goodbye to the last inch of my mullet, that I’ve been hanging on to since the beginning of cosmetology school. It feels weird to not have that piece of me anymore but also refreshing. Haircuts are much more than shedding dead hair. For many, our hair holds our energy, our memories, our spirit. I cut my hair off right before I started school and have been growing it out throughout my journey. Those very ends were the last bit of Ali before I started this chapter of my life. As a hairstylist I’ve known for a long time I needed to cut the ends of my mullet off because they’d been through so many chemical processes, but as a person I wasn’t ready to let that part of myself go. Today I make room on my head and in my life for new experiences, new pathways, new journeys, and a renewed spirit.

If you’ve made it this far thank you for listening to me ramble. This is me announcing a new service at The Girl With Shears Studio. Transformational Cuts are now on the service menu. During this service we’ll reflect on your journey with your hair and where you’d like go with it. We’ll cleanse your hair, and then you’ll make the first cut with my guidance, after which I’ll finish the cut. The first cut can be preserved for you to take home if you’d like. 🖤✨

Thanks for reading!

I’m so sorry to everyone who has been rescheduled the past few weeks. We had the snow storm hit and i’ve gotten sick twice since then. My schedule has been all over the place. If I reschedule you I promise i’m doing it because I think it’s in your best interest. I absolutely hate to inconvenience my clients and it also puts my schedule behind. Thank you for being understanding, I promise i’m working to get everyone in as safely and quickly as possible! 🖤✨
