3 Easy Resolutions for the New Year!

New year, New You!

2024 is here! With the new year come resolutions: what can I do to be better this year? Many of our goals include lots of dedication and hard work to achieve. While we love to set—and work toward—goals, we love to give you an outlet for quick and well-executed changes! And what better place than the hair salon? Whether you’re considering a chop or a change of color, you can feel fresh and new after a visit to Rustic Salon!

We are going to showcase 3 of our favorite transformations from 2023. You can draw inspiration and add one of these hair transformations to your New Year’s resolutions. That way you can launch into 2024 looking and feeling brand new!


 2023 saw a huge influx in bob and lob cuts— we absolutely love it! Practical, fun and flirty bringing your hair above the shoulders is a surefire way to spice up your look. It is a diverse cut that can be tailored to your specific hair type and style. A bob can be textured and voluminous, sleek and chic or anything in between. Many of our clients came in in 2023 looking for such a transformation. If you are looking to leave behind your burdens, you can shed a pound or two with a chop (our preferred method of weight loss.)


Sometimes we love the length, but with the dreariness and monochrome of the winter world, a bright or bold color can liven your look. Brunette, blond, or burgundy we saw many of our clients take up a new hue. A color change can be intimidating but you can trust our team of stylists to help you find a flattering look that compliments you!


Perms are surging to the headlines of late and we have seen an uptick in clients seeking out waves, curls and coils. We love to help you achieve the hair of your dreams and if you are someone with hair that won’t commit to your hair resolutions—we can help. With stubborn, not-quite-straight, hair a perm offers a myriad of options for giving you more body and volume!

For our naturally curly clients, we are excited to share that we have been paying extra attention to increasing our education on curls. Learning about product application and styling techniques is helping us to find new and better ways to service you. It is so important to us that every client have an amazing experience and we ensure that we are working hard to make that true. So, if you are resolved to taking better of your curls this year, pay us a visit!
