Best Kept Secrets

Best Kept Secrets


This was my transformation after many years of box dying my own hair. My ‘I can’t afford to have my hair done’ resulted in awful color and over processed hair. Tammy was wonderful! She obviously immediately took control of my hair and fixed the damage I inflicted on myself. I trust her implicitly and she goes above and beyond to make sure you are pleased. You will walk in a client and leave as a friend! Trust me.

Fantastic & casual hair salon in Lake Ridge, VA You walk in to an adorable space where you are greeted with a smile and a hug by a friend or two. New color?

Picture this... You've had a rough day and just need to get off of your feet, stop worrying about all the things that need to be done and just spend a little time on yourself. Hot and cold beverages are at the ready and all you have to do is sit down and relax. Your stylist ( and awesome friend) is ready to transform you. No problem! Fantastic new cut? Definitely! Don't worry! I've got this.


Bwaaahahha… TRUTH!!!!


That’s All Folks!❤️❤️❤️

Update from The Best Kept Secrets about COVID-19 05/05/2020

Update from The Best Kept Secrets about COVID-19

We’ve made some changes due to COVID-19

Hi Everyone,

I know how difficult the past 7 weeks have been on all of us. From those of us working from home, to those of us not working due to government restrictions and even those who are home by choice but who cannot go anywhere because of social distancing and health issues, we are all struggling in some way.

My initial reaction to the Governor’s new date for POTENTIALLY re-opening our businesses, was to go ahead and re-schedule everyone’s appointments AGAIN and hope for the best. I have decided that this is extremely stressful for me because I hate letting everyone down. I am not 100% confident the new date of May 15th will stick.. Having said that, I am going to ask that everyone please be patient with me and let me schedule /re-schedule all upcoming appointments as soon as I have a definitive date. I promise to do it swiftly and fairly. I know some of you have been waiting since late March to get in.

Things are going to be very different when you visit me next time...

-I will only be allowed to take one client at a time. No more overlapping appointments. This means I will not be able to book as many people in one day as I have in the past.
-You will be required to wait in your car until I text you to come in. The front door will be locked at all times. I will meet you at the door to let you in.
-There will be a 15 minute gap in between all appointments to allow me time to sanitize all tools, countertops, the sink,, chairs, and door handles.
-EVERYONE will be required to wear a mask

If you’re looking for more ways to protect yourself and your loved ones, check out the CDC ( website.

Thank you so much for sticking with me. I truly appreciate your friendship and look forward to supporting each other during these challenging times.
