Make plans to attend the Grand Opening of The Beauty Bar in Oakland this Friday, October 23rd from 4 to 8pm! Kristie McCready will be setting up her hair salon in the back part of Blossoms (512 Dr. Van Zee Rd.) with a ribbon cutting at 4pm followed by refreshments, hors d’oeuvres, and door prizes.
Kristie is a Riverside graduate, grew up in Macedonia, and graduated from the Salon Professionals Academy in Ames. After doing hair in North Carolina, Kansas City, and taking a year-long adventure ride in a converted ambulance, Kristie realized it was time to come home.
It was an easy decision to set up shop in Blossoms as it was the nicest, established, move-in ready facility to make her home area return. For those who’ve known Kristie forever, they know that she gave her 1st haircut in 6th grade and never slowed down from there! She loves being creative, loves people, and loves how her profession is always evolving with something new for her to learn. Her passion right now is color and wedding hair.
She will be open Wednesday and Thursdays 9 to 9 and Friday and Saturdays 9 to 6 and by appointment for regulars. Mens’ cuts will be $20 including a face wash, hair wash, and warm towel. Ladies’ cuts will be $35 with a warm towel and hand massage, as well. All patrons will have access to free wine, beer, tea, coffee, and water as Ms. McCready wants her customers to get a high-end, comfortable, consistent experience every time. With Kristie’s personable and approachable style, there’s no question she’ll be booked!
Interested in seeing more of her style, you can check her out on Facebook: The Beauty Bar at Blossoms or on Instagram: HairbyKristieMcCready.
Welcome back to Pott. Co., Kristie! We’re glad you made your way home!
