A chic new hair salon called The Hair Studio” opened recently in Fairhaven, where proprietor Alycia Halle and her team create beautiful hairstyles in a relaxing, fun, full-service salon. Alycia has been involved in the hair business since 1990 and has brought her years of experience to her new place.  It’s beautiful inside, where Alycia hand-picked most of the décor, such as the fabulous chairs and rugs, the art work, as well as a great hanging chandelier which sparkles in the salon’s sunlit room.

Alycia regularly attends hair shows to keep current with the latest styles. Along with haircuts and color, the hair studio provides Keratin treatments, waxing and manicures. The Hair Studio also features the hottest new nail polish, called Shellac, which dries instantly under a cure light and lasts for two weeks without chipping. Paul Mitchell and Redken products are primarily used in the color process, and as for shampoo and styling, she uses Keune and Onestra. Onestra is a green company that produces all natural, plant-based products which are free of parabens, sodium sulfates, colors, dyes and animal testing to answer the requests for safer, natural products.

Onestra also donates 10% of their net income to cancer research. This is close to Alycia’s heart as she is also a breast cancer survivor. While going through treatment herself, she realized that aside from the physical and emotional toll, there is also the financial toll that is not covered by insurance such as transportation and child care.

Alycia and friends decided to start a non-profit foundation to help those South Coast families struggling to handle those extra expenses that come along with the healing process.This was back in October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM). When trying to come up with a name for the foundation, they knew they wanted to “kick the cancer out”, so they removed the letter “C” and the BAM Foundation was hatched. BAM Foundation, Inc. is dedicated to raising money to help South Coast families battling cancer.

The Hair Studio is located at 366 Main Street in Fairhaven which is easily accessible from Rt.195 and has plenty of parking. Stations are available for rent for a stylist, massage therapist or esthetician looking for a great space to work as well. Call Alycia at (508)-999-0366 to book an appointment, and mention this article to receive 20% off your first service. The Hair Studio slogan:“Enhancing the true beauty that lies within each and every one of us.”  Happy pampering!
