Meet Carissa!

Hello Everyone! My name is Carissa Conduff. I am the salon manager for the new Kearney salon location and stylist! I have been doing hair since 2019. Although, we did have a few hiccups throughout my hair journey... Just a regular pandemic and adding a kiddo to the mix. It's taken a lot of work to get to the position I am in today, but I wouldn't trade my journey.

Throughout it, my husband and I welcomed our daughter in 2020 and moved to a new city! Along the way I met my wonderful boss and mentor Ashley Backs. Once we met in person there was no stopping us! We became the perfect match to help one either succeed with opening the Kearney salon. She has been such a huge blessing and inspiration.

A little bit about my work behind the chair. I specialize in special event hair, balayages,

custom blondes, beaded and keratin extensions, along with curly hair styling and cutting!

Outside of hair, I adore motherhood. My heart fills up with every planned craft or bike ride. With the joy that teaching my daughter gives me, we have decided to homeschool her. When that time comes. I'm constantly looking for the best way of teaching and am always looking to learn more!

That's a little bit about me. I hope to get the opportunity, to have all of you beautiful souls in my chair soon!

Sneak Peak Into Our Design Process!

Kearney is getting a never before seen salon design! We are mixing natural elements and Luxury to give a warm and inviting look, with an edge. You will notice a different shades of pink, beige, and gold. But, we didn't stop there. We know we need an accent color to make the space pop!

Can you guess what color we picked?!...

BLUE! This color choice gives the salon a whole different vibe. It's safe to say, we are in love with our new space. Plus, a touch of gold, to tie in the luxury experience.

How's Construction Going?

We are so grateful for this rain in August!

Because of to this crazy weather, the

construction workers have been able to complete more working in our salon. Since, they were unable to continue outdoor jobs. This has made our prediction of opening to the public around the end of August, a hopeful REALITY!? 🤞🏻

A note from Ashley

This whole endeavor has been saturated with provisions from the Lord. I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the outpouring of community support and love that we have already been receiving. From clients, landlords, construction crews, the chamber and just good neighbors. It has been provision after provision for making this dream a reality.

What probably only close friends and family know is that I have been searching for a location in Kearney for over a year! Last year at this time I was actually exploring the space that the boutique just renovated.

Some may think that just because we have other locations already, that this is an easy endeavor. But it has probably been more of a step in faith if I were being honest. I am so thankful for friends and family willing to help late into the night to save every penny possible to make this happen.

I hope to see so many new wonderful faces soon and can't wait to get to know the people of this community that we call our home.

❤️ AB
