Our Mission

To enhance our clients' natural beauty while having fun!

Staff Bios

Owner / Stylist - Douglas Kelly

The mission statement says it all for me: "To enhance our clients' natural beauty while having fun!"

After cutting hair for 41 years, I have developed a unique style of cutting hair dry instead of wet. Because of using this dry cutting technique, I have become an expert with curly hair. First-time clients receive an hour appointment for their consultation and cut.

While I prefer to focus exclusively on cutting, I work hand in hand with the staff on clients who wish to color. For optimum results please show up with hair clean and down, not pulled back, no hat hair either please.

Personally I am a proud community advocate. Along with others, we have planted over 180 trees and worked to create a lovely downtown setting.

Stylist - Ruth Hosier

The Bob, the Shag and the Pixie are just a few of the haircuts that i have performed, through the 25 plus years of my career.

It's been exciting learning new edgy ways to recreate these classics, as they are forever in demand.

I have continued my education locally as well as several courses in NY with Redken Fitfh Ave. and with the Goldwell Hair Color Academy in Md. Pairing hair color with haircuts is my specialty. I love the challenge of a complete hair makeover, whether it's a full head of highlights/color, to partials and peek-a-boo pieces. There is an accent for your haircut!

When I'm not working, I enjoy some competitive bowling with my husband, working on crafts and playing with my boxer mix Lily. It's an honor to work in a salon of professionals that has fun servicing every generation, both male and female alike. Should I see you in my chair, it will be my pleasure to share my hair expertise with you!

Stylist - Ashleigh McHenry

Ashleigh's keen understanding of what a client wants translates into crafting a style that is perfectly suited for one's facial structure, but also compatible with their lifestyle as well. Her high energy and down to earth style makes her able to satisfy a wide range of clients . She likes traveling, good conversation, and someone who is just as excited about getting their haircut as much as she is doing it. Her job is not only reenergizing but keeps her focused on what's important. She believes "beauty isn't worth thinking about; what's important is your mind. You don't want a fifty-dollar haircut on a fifty-cent head."

Stylist -Julie Joy

"My great grandfather was a barber so I guess you can say it's in my blood" Working locally for the past 20 years, Julie has developed quite a loyal following. Combining her love of art with her skills as a stylist, Julie uses hair as her canvas creating one of a kind styles. Accentuating the hairs movement with thoughtfully placed hilights and colors, while revealing underlying tones that compliment her clients skin tones.

Stylist - Andrea Siciliano-Trusty

Hairstyling started as a passion in High School for Andrea. So much so that she has invested 30+ years into the industry of hair. After graduating from Gordon Phillips when first starting hair, she has continued her education with several classes for different color lines, hair cutting , special styling , product knowledge and workshops at the Redken Exchange in NYC. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing my clients facial expressions after their service is complete. The excitement it brings them really brings out the best in them and that is my goal everytime.

Stylist - Amy Bartholomew

"I love being part of a creative industry and enjoy art in all of it's many expressions."

I like to think of collaboration as the most important part of working with clients. I believe that communication is key and listening to descriptions about hair design is just the start. Today's client are savvy and informed. They want to exchange ideas and share input about their hair. We develop a plan together during the consultation. I want clients to love their hair when they leave, but most importantly between appointments as well.

I like to design shapes and color that give strong support to a desired look and then customize those designs with detailing for each individual. During my 25 years in the business I have worked as a stylist, educator, and manager. I like to share my skills and experience with clients, guiding them through at-home maintenance tips.

My favorite part of the salon experience is being in a stimulating environment and connecting with a unique variety of people every day.

Stylist - David Berry

My name is David. I studied at Rizzieri Aveda Institute for Cosmetology in Voorhees, NJ. The love for the craft of haircutting has quickly become my passion. I can even be spotted at the gym watching hair tutorials on the treadmill. I'm constantly investing in furthering my education and have taken countless courses in order to do so.

It's always been my belief that everything you put your hands to is important. It's an expression of who you are and a measure of what you value most. Your personal signature is everything, so I make every effort to pay attention to every detail.

My technique is a blend of Sassoon-based precision cutting, free-form dry cutting, and modern day barbering. I'm a big believer in having both structure and free-form in the design of every haircut along with suitability customized to the individual. You have to build the proper foundation first, then you decorate the house.

As a stylist, I also believe listening is the main ingredient to a successful experience. My job is to not only encourage you and move you towards your goal, but to also meet you where you're at. I will work hand-in-hand with you to get you to your desired end result. Looking forward to seeing you in my chair.

I take both male and female clients.

Stylist - Catherine VanCuren

I graduated from the Rizzieri Aveda School of Cosmetology program . I believe a thorough consultation is invaluable. I want to fully understand what your hair goals are and work toward achieving them. I value my relationships with my clients and my end goal is always for you to love your hair. Most people would describe me as visual, creative and kind. Most importantly-I am passionate about education and committed to continually taking classes to better my skill set. I would love to have an opportunity to work with you.

Salon Coordinator - Alyssa Trusty

Alyssa has been engulfed in the hair world since she was born. Growing up with her mother being a hair stylist (Andrea), Alyssa has been fascinated by the art of hair from a young age. Align that with her 10+ years of customer service experience and that would land her here at Blue. Im just happy to be here, engaging with the clients is the highlight of my day. Constantly learning so many things from the people I come across daily has been nothing but a joy. Oh & working with your mom is a once in a lifetime experience so thats pretty exciting!

Salon Coordinator - Steve Gleba

I joined Blue in 2023, following a thirty-five year career as a travel consultant, specializing in African wildlife safaris. The hallmarks of my success were built upon friendly customer service and organization, so it's extremely gratifying to bring this kind of support to our customers and team. I love it when clients say they can feel such good energy when they walk in. If they leave with that impression and great-looking hair, we're not only doing our work, but bringing a unique value to the community as well. Please ask me for anything at any time - I take great pleasure in hosting you!
