Many people put their hair in the hands of professionals for styles, cuts, color and weekly treatments.

A change of season is motivation for some to make physical changes to their hair and lifestyles. Experts in the community share their toolkit tips and passion for hair with clients.

Owner of Beauty Bar, Sally Vogel, has been a stylist for more than 30 years. She said clients come in for more than hair care.

"People share their lives with you (and) you just get to be like a family," Vogel said.

Vogel purchased the Beauty Bar 33 years ago, when the former owner made plans to leave town. Then, it was to keep her job. Now, it's about the relationships she has built and her passion for hair.

"It's not something you walk away from easily," Vogel said. "I don't feel like I'm in competition with anybody; we are comrades in a profession and I think we should all work together and be supportive."

She said trends now seem similar to older trends, with an added twist. Classic styles like Farrah Fawcett's, gypsy cuts and shaggy styles come back around with more flare.

Up the highway in Clarksburg, owner of A Good Hair Day, Robin Arnold, said everything is in style.

Clients come into the salon for a "pick-me-up." They try bold colors and new cuts to change things up.

"For a while, everybody grew their hair out and then everybody cuts it off, now you have a little of everything," Arnold said.

The salon has been around for more than 10 years. She opened when Arnold wanted to have a salon closer to home.

She said seasonal changes are typically on trend with what colors look best with the weather.

In the spring and summer, some boost their highlights, so they pop in the sun. In the fall, darker colors are most popular. Reds and eggplant colors make the hair appear healthier. Hair with body and curls are also on trend.

"Girls are putting more body in their hair and more curls and waves, not wearing it so flat," Arnold said.

To maintain healthy hair when the seasons change, one should follow up with a professional stylist. These tips can help with day-to-day hair care for all lengths, styles and colors.
