Harmony business “A Cut Above the Rest”


Mon, Nov 10th, 2014
Posted in Harmony Features

A stylin’ new shop has opened in Harmony, Minn. and is ready to blow customers away with their service. The Shop A Cut Above the Rest was opened in July of 2014 by Amy Lynde.

After graduating from The Rochester School of Cosmetology in Rochester, Minn. ten years ago, Lynde has been gaining diverse experience. Her first job was doing bridal up-do’s and make-up in a smaller salon and then she worked at the Klip Joint in Harmony for approximately a year before moving on to another opportunity at The Barbershop in Rochester.

Lynde was employed at The Barbershop for six years, specializing in men’s styling and managing two of their locations, before opening her own business. She enjoyed working at The Barbershop, but was ready to take the next step.

Lynde states she wanted to open her own shop for several reasons, mostly to have something more flexible for her family, and also to be closer to home and not driving so many miles to and from work. Another consideration is the fact that Lynde’s son and nephew started attending school in Harmony this year, so she thought being in Harmony would be ideal.

The Shop offers a variety of services as Lynde says she has brought in some of the services she has had experience with in each of her previous jobs. All hair services are offered and everyone receives a shampoo with a haircut. Men and boys will also get a hot towel along with their haircut and shampoo.

Women receive paraffin hand treatments with any color services which is an added bonus that they really enjoy. Lynde also does a make-up refresher for women because she says she wants her female customers to “feel beautiful when they leave.” Lynde has GK, Kenra, and Alterna hair products in stock and a small line of Sorme make -up available to customers.

Lynde offers a special service for girls birthday parties where the birthday girl and her guests can come in and get their hair, make-up, and nails done while mom watches. The Shop can also provide cupcakes and drinks for the birthday parties so moms could just hold the entire birthday party at The Shop if they would like.

Many women have commented they would like to have a similar event for adults where they can come in with their friends and Lynde is happy to accommodate them. What a fun way to spend the day with your best friends!

The atmosphere at The Shop is very fun and relaxing wit .....
