Happy National Doggy Day!

My 8 month pups Luna and Aurora with their amazing smiles...

Little do they know that during our mini vacay they will be left behind to learn some manners at a boarding school 😬

Here is to hoping that in 6 weeks they still love me 🤷🏼‍♀️

Please share photos of your adorable doggies down below 👇🏻

Today is no regular Saturday, friends--
it’s National Relaxation Day!

The calendar is literally (well, kinda) calling for some much needed rest for all of us and my plans are to try out a NEW! hair mask (which is my secret obsession currently) and spending the day lounging in my favorite pj’s.

How will you relax today?

You know, now that you know you sort of HAVE to!

How do you treat yo’self?

Do you love flowers or iced coffee or both? (Both are my faves)

A relaxing shampoo style by moi?
(Because you already know that’s a special treat!)

I am partial to solo trips to the book store and every chance I get I like to reward myself with a new book, as well as an iced coffee.

I put my heart and soul into building my dream career and special treats remind me that I’m following my passion.

How do you remind yourself you’re following your heart?

2020’s been a doozie, hasn’t it?

I’m happy for literally ANY reason to celebrate!

So I’m here to tell you it’s National Ice Cream Day🍦!!!!

What’s your favorite flavor?

During July I would have to say that my current FAVE would be Peach🍑 !!!

Non- Dairy choice would be Ben & Jerry's Sorbet they have a flavor called Pucker Up ( ITS AMAZING!!) with raspberry and lemonade flavors and tiny sweet and sour crystals. YUM!!!

So today in celebration after my last appointment, I will make a visit to my favorite Ice Cream Spot DOUMARS in Norfolk, VA!

Take time and celebrate with me,
Share a photo of your Ice Cream treat today!

Isn’t it fun that it’s World Emoji Day?🥳

So let' CELEBRATE!!! 🍹🍹🍹

My current favorite emoji is 😷, which also happens to be the one I use most frequently due to our new normal.

But I also love this emoji 💇‍♀️ for when I’m in a work mindset or this one 🗝 when I’m feeling Thriving!!!

Quick... in honor of this international holiday, drop your favorite emoji in the comments!👇👇👇

I am excited to celebrate the 4th of July🇺🇸 !!!

Even though it looks a little different than usual, I’m still excited to see my kids playing with sparklers🎇, eating watermelon🍉, and have family cookout 🍔 with my family.

This year is definitely an Independence Day I won’t forget!

What about you friend, how will you be celebrating the 4th of July?

The ability to capture a moment in time with the click of a camera button simply amazes me.

There are many once-in-a-lifetime memories that I love to reminisce looking through old photos, like my daughter Annabella and my son Grayson's baby photos. They were sooooo tiny!

But there are some day-to-day moments that make my heart happy too, like the activities we do as a family. From kayaking, fishing, riding bikes in the neighborhood and of course getting ice cream on hot days...

I need to make an effort to take pictures of it so I can cherish the memory forever.

What is something that you see everyday that brings you joy?

When you love your country, every day is Memorial Day. Today I'm honoring those who gave their lives for our country and I’m taking my patriotism to the next level by wearing a red poppy to honor fallen soldiers. Tell me friend, how are you spending the day?

Ever since I was little, I’ve been a dreamer.

I used to dream about being on Nickelodeon Slime Shows.

Now, when I dream about success, I envision Full Service Salon with an amazing TRIBE.

I’ve always had big dreams, so thank YOU for accompanying me as I work towards them!

If you could choose one new look/style to bring your hair to life, what would you wish for?

While I’m no fairy godmother, I can grant you the wish of lightness and brightness throughout your hair with some amazing blonding to bring your hair to life.

If that sounds magical to you, let’s talk!

Here is a processing photo & after results...
It turned out absolutely amazing...
Caramel blonde to lighten up her look...
Exactly what she wanted.

I know you, friend…. you want the best bang for your buck.

On that note, there are just 24 hours left to save 20% on all retail products, and get a FREE hair mask sample so don’t miss out!

Tell me, are you all in?

If so, leave a comment so I can celebrate with you!

If not, do you have any questions I can answer?

Last chance!!

I’m sure my best friends have an endless list of words to describe yours truly, but if they had to narrow it down to just three words, I bet they’d call me dependable, ambitious, and beautiful.

While I guess they may be right (after all, they’ve known me for years), I also appreciate the kind words that my clients have used, like a true talent, amazing listener, and the BEST.

I couldn’t be more thankful hearing ALL of these kind words!

What about you, friend? What three words describe you best?

Do you like surprises?

I’m a hairstylist so you can probably guess that from day to day I often use tools like shears, combs, and hair clips to do what I love.

What might surprise you is how necessary education, social media, my online booking site, chocolate or coffee is, too!

What do you do and what do you use to do it?

I realized something today.

After 5 years of working to build my clientele, I realized why I work so diligently.

More specifically, I realized WHO I work so diligently for.

I work for my amazing little family, each and everyday I still wonder how I got so darn lucky to have such an amazing support system.

It’s an honor to be able to work with the hopes of making them proud.

And what about you, friend?

Who do you work for?

Double tap if you want to hear a random fact about me!

I’ve been a business owner since my early twenties when I learned life is too short to not pursue your dreams, BUT I’ve had a mindset of a BOSS since childhood.

And I’ve learned, through all the peaks and valleys that have brought me to where I am now, that the real key to my success, the one thing that allows me to keep this business going is my absolute passion for uplifting and making other women feel beautiful.

Thank you for joining me on this journey.

Often times, people assume that the best part about being a hairstylist must be setting my own hours or always having amazing hair.

While those are both true, and AMAZING perks of this job, I’d have to say that my very favorite thing is making my clients feel truly beautiful and give them this gift is my #1 priority.

I wanted to share this inside look so you know just how much I love what I do.


Is there anything you are a bit insecure about?

If you’re anything like me, something immediately came to mind!

For me, it’s that I’m intensely shy. ( I know shocker right, but I push myself everyday to overcome this struggle, but once I know someone thankfully the shyness goes away)

I have struggled to feel comfortable in social situations all my life, but am working every day to turn things around.

Lately, quell anxiety with daily pep talks and motivational post it quotes around the house.

What are you insecure about, and how do you overcome it?

Regardless of what it is, know this friend: you are enough!

Can we all agree not to work today?

I think few of us would dispute that moms are some of the hardest workers on earth, so in honor of Mother’s Day, let’s all take a well deserved break.

And to help with that, I’m sharing some of my best motherly advice: You are enough & deserve that break...

What’s yours?

I have to admit:I have a TERRIBLE sweet tooth.

I wanna know, what’s your favorite kind of dessert?

I’ll say that for me, I grew up loving red velvet cake ( which I still Love ❤ but lately I’m really into Strawberry Shortcake.

Just writing this post is making my mouth water!

So what’s your favorite sweet treat?

I can’t say I love EVERYthing about my job, and if I’m being honest there are some days I wish that all the hard work, late nights, and sacrifices that come with being my own boss would disappear!

But if I could pick the top three favorite things I love about being a hairstylist, I’d pick the constant inspiration of being an artist, being my own boss ( because I am amazing), and of course my clients who motivate and support me daily.

What would your three things be?

Just like plants require sunlight and water, dreams take some TLC, too!

I may not have a green thumb, even though having a vase of fresh flowers in my salon brightens my days, but I do know what it takes to keep my dreams alive!

A can-do attitude, and, of course, perseverance is all it takes to achieve even the wildest dreams!

What about you? How do you nourish your dreams?

My clients are made up of all different types of people: from those with short dark locks to those with long blonde hair.

But I have a feeling we all have something in common….

We’re celebrating 🌮 Cinco de Mayo today!

My favorite part of this holiday is the excuse to drink margaritas 🍹 on a Tuesday.

Tell me friend, how are you spending the day?

Be sure to celebrate this fun holiday accordingly!


Welcome to Sissy Stengel Hairstylist, where I post a ton about my business, and not infrequently about my adorable family.

But every now and again I like to toss up a post that tells you some things about me you probably didn’t know besides the fact that I’m a hairstylist and salon suite owner.


I have a love-hate relationship with being cold.

Right now, I’m really into trying out new recipes and I love nothing more than game night with the kiddos and reading a good book in the evening.

Nice to meet you! Now tell me something about YOU!

I hate to admit it, but today I noticed I haven’t put on an actual non-pajama, non-sweatpants outfit since FOREVER!

But you know what? I’m surviving, and I love that I have time to do online business in my pj's.

At the end of the day, I continue to work hard because I want to have the kind of life where I’m the one making the rules... dress codes and in-times are for the birds.

What (or who) are you hustling for?

They say April showers bring May flowers, and that is definitely true today! To celebrate May Day, today I’m brightening up my dining room with my favorite flower, hydrangeas. How are you welcoming spring weather?

Who else gets the itch to travel this time of year?!

To get my fix after quarantine is over, I’m hoping to take a long weekend and travel to the OBX to feel the 🌊 ocean breeze in my hair and warm sand between my toes.

Where would you like to go when we’re not sheltering-in-place?

Drop an emoji hinting your dream vacay and let’s see if I can guess the location!

Ready, GO!

Oh hey there!

For those who have been here a while, thanks for stickin’ around!

And for the newbies, have a seat!

I hope you learn a little something new about me today.

How about we do this like a game show lightning round?

Today I want to FB-thank Shari Rubright, and cyber-shout it from the mountaintops for all of you to hear!

I’ve always been the type to send thank you cards, but Shari deserves it.

She has been one amazingly supportive client during this pandemic, weekly sometimes daily check ups on me, I quite honestly couldn’t imagine this world without the amazing person she is...

Thank you Shari Rubright! You’re a beautiful soul inside and out!😘

I guess you could say I’m a pro at saying “thank you” – but if tomorrow I didn’t have the things I didn’t give thanks for today, where would I be?

And in the spirit of thankfulness, I want to tell you that I wouldn’t be who I am without your encouragement and support.

As I continue this adventure, I feel so much gratitude to pursue what I love and have you here for the ride.

I’ll never tire of saying it, friends.

Thank you for being here.

Please help me in wishing a very Happy Birthday!!!

To my amazing Husband, Trent today.

He is the most selfless, loving, and supportive husband.
(always helping me with my projects at the salon suite)

He is an amazing Father as well to our two beautiful children.

Most importantly, I am most excited today is your Birthday, just because you requested an Ice Cream Cake.

I ❤ cake & of course you, too.

Hello & Welcome!

I was born and raised to be a smart and stylish southern gal in a darling little town in South Carolina.

And I've used that to my advantage as a hairstylist in Virginia Beach the past five years. I love my career as a hairstylist making other's feel like their best it truly fills my soul. ​

As a happy little introvert, I thrive on one-on-one interactions and work to create a comfortable, relaxed environment you are sure to enjoy!

In my personal time I am an avid reader as well as a podcast and audio book junkie.

If you catch me out in town your sure to find me at Targets, Barnes and Nobles or at a local Mexican restaurant, which I have a personal goal to become a connoisseur of the local margaritas.

I have two beautiful children and an amazing husband who support me in all my endeavors. Who I also enjoy creating memories with as much as possible. As a family we enjoy going kayaking, bike riding and finding new nature trails to visit together.

I'm also a education fanatic! I am always researching new techniques to help me in the salon, as well as traveling to many classes. I love creating new and fresh looks for my clients.

Please contact me today for a complimentary consultation.

I look forward to working with you and sharing all my hair knowledge!

​Kind Regards,

Sissy Stengel
