Shear Oasis adds another stylists to new salon

After cutting hair for 17 years and then taking a break to be a mom, Carrie Ingram recently started working again at Shear Oasis Salon in the Swiss Village Shops.

For Ingram styling came easy and started at an early age.

“I started with cutting my dad’s hair when I was about 12 and then started cutting off my Barbie’s and my dolls’ hair,” she said. “Then I used to braid and style my friend’s hair before track and volleyball games.”

After graduating from Yavapai Beauty College, Ingram started her career as a stylist. Today, she provides haircuts, shaping, razor cutting, semi-perms, permanent color, highlighting and low lighting, mild hair straitening and relaxing and special occasion styling.

She said besides chunky highlights, a-line haircuts and using bright colors in highlights are popular.

Ingram is always on the lookout for new trends and attends hair shows to find out what the next trend will be.

“I love learning new things from all ages,” she said. “I’ve learned a lot through this business and I want to continue learning more.

“I like to make people feel good about themselves.”

Studio B adds new talent 

A new stylist has started at Studio B.

Although Jennifer Rodgers recently started working at the salon, she is not new to the business. For the last 15 years, she has been cutting hair. She came to Payson for a change and so far loves the change of pace.

Rodgers offers cuts, colors, highlights, perms, extensions and waxing.

She said she cannot name a favorite customer because, “every one of them touch me in their own way.”

For an appointment, call (928) 474-3580 or stop by 706 N. Beeline Highway.
