This week, we wanted to know who the top hair stylists in town are. We didn't hear back from any of our readers, but there are still plenty of options in town. So we have selected five places to go when you need a new 'do.

  • Back at the beginning of May, Local Editor Matt Schooley told Facebook followers that he needed a haircut and wanted to know where to go. The first response came from Stacie Murphy. "," said Murphy. "You will love the ladies there. They're a lot of fun." Donna Botte agreed. "Hair Xtreme! Definitely!" she said. I followed their advice, and wasn't disappointed. Plus, a week or so later they sent me a coupon for my next cut because I was a new customer. Not bad!
  • Also commenting on that Facebook post was Laurie Briere who said, "I go to , and everyone is very nice there." Thanks for your feedback, Laurie!
  • If you're in a hurry and don't have time to make an appointment, pop into . The Main Street location is convenient and they accept walk-ins as well!
  • If you're simply seeking a new look all together, you want to go somewhere you can get a style and a tan. Look no further than . You'll come out feeling and looking refreshed.
  • We've got one for the gentlemen as well! has received five stars behind four reviews on Patch, so it's obviously one of the top places for a men's cut in town.

This article doesn't do hair designs Any justice. I am a long time customer and Feel like the article made them sound like they don't book appointments. Fact is that they are alwAys booked but the girls there totally care and want to make everyone happy so if you walk in they will do whatever they canto fit you in. V

Amanda, Thanks for your feedback, we always welcome it! I did not mean to make it seem like they don't book appointments. I have not gotten my hair cur there personally, but was researching a bit about the salon and saw they take walk ins, which I know is important to many people, so I put that in there. I'd love to hear more about Hair Design. What is about the service there that is so outstanding, and what overall is it that has had you coming back for so many years? Have a great weekend!! Matt

I think Rebecca at Salon Essence needs to be mentioned as one of the top stylists in town. She has many years experience and is a color specialist. Her outgoing personality is always a pleasant experience. Keep up the good work Rebecca, you dedication and hard work does not go unnoticed.
