Going Headstrong for 20 Years

by Hannah Brown

For over twenty years, headstrong salon has been the go-to salon in Lower Makefield. This full-service salon opened in 1997, and now the whole team and loyal clients, some who have spanned multiple generations, are celebrating 20 years of cuts, colors, and community.

Owners Pat Dunleavy and Carla Carter are busy at work finishing their latest renovation which includes new styling stations, a fresh coat of paint and an overall revamped decor. It’s fitting that the salon will unveil its most dramatic makeover on such a momentous anniversary.

headstrong’s signature services include highlights as well as Keratin Express Treatments, which are especially popular as locals prepare to “de-frizz” for an island vacation or to make it through the humid summer months.

Beyond these signature offerings, headstrong offers a variety of haircolor options including ombre highlights, gray maintenance and seasonal tweaks. Known throughout Bucks County for their haircolor expertise, the headstrong team is experienced in everything from corrections to full blown makeovers.

In addition to color, clients visit for a range of services including haircuts, blowouts, extensions, keratin express treatments, wax hair removal, and makeup application.

An area that the headstrong team especially takes pride in is their wedding day services. The entire team works together to ensure a smooth beginning for the bridal party – offering coffee, tea, and orange juice and other supplies to add to their memorable morning. Some brides even bring along their photographers to capture every special moment of the day.

A key to their ongoing success is their team’s commitment to mastering the latest hair trends and products, frequently participating in training sessions as well as hosting in-house classes at the salon. You can check out some of their works of art, news, offers, and more on their Facebook page here. You can also keep up with headstrong salon on Instagram and Pinterest.

Perhaps the best reflection of headstrong’s success is their range of clientele – from the classically conservative to the experimental teen; small business owners to CEOs; stay-at-home-parents, teachers, trades-people and everything in between. It’s a salon that builds relationships beyond time spent beneath the blow dryer – a place where friendships start, pets are adopted, and no one is too busy to provide a personal restaurant or travel recommendation.

To make scheduling easy, clients can plan appointments from headstrong’s website, download the free app, or even from the Facebook homepage. Clients receive a personal confirmation through the convenience of text and/or email.
