Welcome to our tribe!
I was born and raised in Enfield, CT. Back in high school, I wanted to leave across country just like everyone else. Instead, I fell in love with my best friends brother, married him, had two beautiful babies (with one on the way!) and decided Enfield was a great town to grow a family. I opened up Head Rush to bring the first sustainable salon to Enfield.
I am really good at reading others energy, which is how I got a great group of ladies working at Head Rush! I think what makes us unique is we truly want the best for each other, love hanging out outside of the salon, and even though we can make fun of each other like sisters we really do care for one another.
We are artists and you are our canvas. We are passionate about what we do and how we do it. We have the confidence to say what will work and what will not and our guests appreciate our openness.
If you think we are the salon for you, request an appointment and we will get you in!
