Hair by Hope Russo

Hairstylist and Studio Owner

I offer haircuts, hair coloring, and hairstyles for the whole family with a philosophy of accessible and grace-based service. My business is located at a cozy, private studio inside SOLA SALONS in Spanish Fort, Alabama.

 
 

Services

Hair by Hope Russo is a non-upselling, non-tipping salon with a policy of price transparency.


My prices reflect product and labor costs. You will never be asked to pay extra for treatments, protective ingredients/bond builders, additional product usage for long or thick hair, or for access to the latest technology in hair care. The best of everything I have to offer comes standard. 

Loyalty Clients (clients who visited the studio or booked their initial appointments prior to 12/6/21) will receive an automatic 20% off of these prices for the entirety of 2022.

All prices will be adjusted to the nearest 10-minute increment up to one hour, 15-minute increment up to 3 hours, 30-minute increment up to 4 hours, and 1 hour increment up to 5 hours. For services beyond 5 hours, the day rate applies.


The client is expected to pay the less-expensive of the quoted and final time-adjusted price at the end of their service.

For example, if you are quoted $70 for a Classic Haircut but your service only takes 35 minutes, then your final price will be lowered to $53. Your final price will never be raised from your initial quote.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact me by text or email for more information.

What is Grace-based Service?

In 2018, I was diagnosed with a chronic health condition. This illness was invisible to everyone (and even to me, for a long stretch of time). I was suffering and no one knew to give me grace--not even me.

Since my diagnosis, I had worked hard to try to fit my Spoonie self into an Able world. This led to financial success, but also a lot of exhaustion, tears, and unfolded laundry. In 2021, I decided that I would instead work to make my little part of the world less centered on the able experience.

Grace-based Service is that attempt. It is a three-part commitment to see my clients as individuals with unique preferences, who deserve a relaxing salon experience regardless of needs or abilities.


Grace-based service includes:


Flexible Scheduling:

  1. You can cancel or reschedule your appointment without notice. There will be no fees, and there will be no awkwardness.

  2. You may request an appointment outside of standard business hours (if you work overnights or odd hours, then you may not be available during the average workday).

  3. You may redesign your service to meet your current needs--even at the time of your appointment. If you are unable to sit for a color, we can simply do a haircut. If you can sit for neither and you just need the caring touch of an extended scalp massage, then that's fine too. This is your time; we will use it however you need to use it.


Cheerful Accommodation

  1. I am able to provide mobility assistance in the event that you need it.

  2. We can take breaks throughout your appointment as you desire.

  3. I am happy to work through any sensory concerns you may have prior to or during your appointment.


Compassion

  1. I strive to center your lived experience during your appointment. That is how you should have always been treated, and that is my commitment to you.

  2. I strive to serve your unique needs, whatever they may be. Nothing legal is too weird for me; my mind is a judgment-free zone.

  3. I strive to meet your standards. You will not need to work to conform to any societal standard while you are in my chair. This is your time to be centered and cared for. Please enjoy the experience.
