Business Profile: Headlines Hair Design

When Terri Negreiff worked for Carol Anderson at her hair salon many years ago, she didn’t believe Anderson when she said Negreiff would buy her business one day.

This March marks four years of Negreiff owning Headlines Hair Design. Negreiff bought the business from Anderson, and closed its doors for about a week while she renovated. It was an emotional time for Negreiff who said she went from excitement to tears and confusion a lot during that week, but once she removed the newspaper from the windows everything felt like it was in the right place.

“I was nervous and scared. It was my first tie doing something like this,” she said. “The day I took all the paper off the window, I knew it was going to be great.”

In the decade that she has worked as a hair dresser, Negreiff says it has never really felt like work. There are days when it’s too cold out, or she’s tired, but she is always excited to go into Headlines to see what the day has to offer. Her crew at Headlines all work for themselves, renting chairs at the establishment, and they all get along like a family.

“We all have our own stations. It’s been a great opportunity for all of us,” she said.

The team at Headlines is always learning, continuing education, and keeping up to speed with hairstyle trends. It is always important to be completely honest with your hair dresser, Negreiff says, to ensure you get the best possible outcome for your cut and colour treatments.

“Your hair can tell a story,” she says.

Regularly, the women who work at Headlines are off attending courses and learning more about their trade.

“It’s something you can do forever,” Anderson said.

Anderson estimates she has spent more than a university education would cost over her 30 years in the business.

“It’s always fun when you go to a colour class or a cut class and you come back and want to try something new,” Negreiff said.

And, as fashion evolves, it also revisits old styles. All of th eladies have noticed that trends from the 1970’s are making their way back, with perms and mullets increasing in popularity once again, with a new flare.

Headlines Hair Design offers a full spectrum of hair treatments, and eyelash extensions by Sandy Benney. They also offer wedding up-do’s, and birthday parties.

Headlines is open Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., or later by appointment.
