Maria Silva, owner and manager of Shear Pleasure Hair Salon, worked for Judy Domini from 1971 to 1981 before
Top Row: Janice Jones, Rhonda Trout, Sue (DeLeon) Sheets, Debbie Belkofer,
taking full ownership in June of 1981.
Maria celebrated her 25th anniversary in June 2006 and looks forward to 2011 when she will have owned the salon for 30 years.
She says her number-one accomplishment is her ability to keep her staff comfortable and in a contented atmosphere. Discussing the salon’s philosophy, she said:
“There is rarely any turnover of employees. We are truly a special sisterhood.
We may sound old fashioned but we credit our highest achievement as caring about people.
A warm and welcoming salon with a mission, we want our clients to experience a trusting, educational and upscale service.
The most popular service in the last year has been a color or foil with a haircut and style.
We strive to keep our clients informed with updated information and techniques about professional salon services, and by offering them the most beneficial homecare plan.
We like to build mutually beneficial relationships with our clients. We want to understand each other and communication is foremost. We like to build our clients’ confidence and have personal conversations to discuss our goals of styles, treatments and products.
We share the latest trends with our clients, as they look to us for advice. We recommend new styles and share our ideas about new colors to compliment their skin tone and eye color.
We teach as we style so our clients can reproduce the same effect at home, with the proper techniques and styling products.
We take the guesswork out of choosing the right products by offering the professional hair care line personalized for each and every individual.
We have services for the entire family.
We seriously consider the mature woman’s beauty. She must be absolutely radiant. When it comes to caring for your hair, there’s so much that can be done to achieve a vital appearance – shine, color placement, style, texture, volume and so much more.
For our younger ladies, we are updating all the time by attending the most current classes available – classes about new color, cuts, products and totally wild styles!
For our mini-clients there are child-size prices and special rewards.
Our male clientele will be overwhelmed with the clipper cuts, razor designs and special blending colors designed to compliment your gray.
Our atmosphere is welcoming and very professional. We aim to be respectful and attentive to your wishes. We offer a sincere thank you to our faithful and loyal clients, friends, and family and a generous welcome to you as our new client.
Thanks for supporting us in a such a huge way!”
