Studio H Salon
With that being said, I'm starting my holiday letter to each of you a little earlier this year. One more thing checked off the endless list, and the start of enjoying the holiday season more and worrying less!
As the holiday season approaches and 2019 draws to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a happy, safe and relaxing holiday season. I would also like to say thank-you and tell you how much I appreciate your business, and all the lovely friend and family referrals you have so graciously sent my way! It seems as if the time is flying by a little faster each year, but I am so grateful that I get to share my life with each of you along the way. I have received so many wonderful new clients this year, and those of you who are not new and have stuck with me through another year I appreciate you more than ever! We have had a busy year, and its not over just yet!
We did it together!
Amongst my busy travels this year, Studio H Salon continues to grow and has had its best year so far yet again! Studio H Salon turned 5 this year, and was able to expand into a bigger suite! By knocking down a wall, and acquiring a second studio I was able to make Studio H Salon a more inviting space for all my clients. I have two chairs to service friends and family at the same time without feeling cramped, and with more space we can all feel at home when entering the salon!
I have continued to travel with Allure Bridals doing hair, teaching up-do classes at the Paul Mitchell school in town, and have started doing more updo & styling classes for salons around the Wichita area! I was even lucky enough to get to do an in store styling class for our local Kendra Scott store!
Studio H Salon also won Top 20 Salons in Wichita for the 4th year in a row, and that would not be possible without each of you spreading the word! Thank you for making that happen, your patronage, referrals and recommendations are invaluable in this process.

2019 was a year for the books!
Lets get personal! You're basically my family at this point, some of you with me for 10 years!
As I sit here typing this, I've started to shed a few tears. Happy tears of course. But tears non the less. Each year around this time I start to naturally reflect on life, love, and business.
My middle sister Cheryl found an amazing job only a few hours from home, designing for the sportswear company, Champion. Which is ironic, because she is a total Champion and rockstar herself, she's far to humble to say it but she is simply amazing. Just this year she has designed the uniforms for numerous professional sports teams, her bones run deep with creativity and drive, and whatever she sets her mind to she does. Cheryl, you inspire me all the time and I'm so proud of you.
Then there is my baby sister Kristen, I was able to see her get Engaged to the love of her life this year and start planning her dream wedding. Planning a wedding all while keeping her Bake Shoppe running smoothly (baking over 10,000 cookies), and teaching 5th graders! I have to brag a bit more, you may have seen Kristen on the news, because this school year every student at Enterprise Elementary gets to bring home one reading book a month, all because one very special teacher decided she wanted more for her students. ( Ok, now I'm really crying.) One very proud big sister over here!
My parents.... My mom does anything for me at the drop of a hat but this year I think I've taken full advantage. She's been a rock for me through so much, and pushed me to expand the salon because she knew that anything I set my mind to I could do. She answers almost every time I call her, and thats a lot. You're never to old to need you mom and I needed her a lot this year. I love you mom, Thank you for being you!
So let me tell you about my dad, he's one of the smartest people I know. 10 years ago he created a Excel spreadsheet to keep my business organized, little did he know that because he created it for me it would catapult me into the person I am today. Without his business knowledge and help Studio H Salon would not be where it is today, and I would not be the successful business owner I am today. Thank you dad, I love you!
Last but not least, Mr. Bradley Burnside....the love of my life, and my rock. Earlier this year when I wanted to expand the salon, he didn't blink an eye. He knew it would be successful because thats how much he believes in me. When I told him I was going to be the Chairwomen for the biggest ladies golf event at Terradyne, he said it would surely be the best it has ever been. And when I said I wanted to travel across the states and take a 6 month long grueling NBR class for hair extensions he was right there cheering me on. He believes in all my crazy dreams and is right by my side for the ride. I thank god everyday for putting such a perfect match in my path when he did.
So like I said many paragraphs back, this time of year makes me want to reflect. As I reflect, there are so many wonderful things I have to be thankful for, and you as my clients, supporting me along the way are at the very top of my list. Thank you for choosing me, choosing me as your hairstylist but also choosing me as a friend to share my life with. It means more to me than you will ever know.

NBR Hair Extensions
To my loyal clients and friends I wanted to give a few heads-up & reminders as we head into 2019!
- Please remember that Studio H Salon will be CLOSED the following days: The week before Thanksgiving for continued NBR Hair Extension Training in California! Thanksgiving Day and the weekend following, and December 21st - January 2nd. We only have a few more weeks before the holidays are in full effect, and with holiday parties and events coming up, please continue to contact me in advance for appointments to reduce any last minute stress.
- I am currently booking clients well into 2020, and due to over a 1/2 dozen weddings already booked throughout 2020 my Saturdays will be extremely limited.
- My travel dates for work and personal will take place in March, April, & May for the spring and August-October in the Summer/Fall.
Its never to early to book!
I only have a few openings before Christmas, so please contact me if anyone needs in before the Holiday! I would love to see all of you before the New Year!
Many of you find it easier to book several appointments ahead, and that of course will ensure you your preferred day and time. As my loyal clients once you book your appointment you will always receive first priority if you ever need to reschedule.
I hope to hear from you and see you all very soon!
Once again, thank you for choosing me as your Hair Stylist, and friend! Please remember that I am here for you should you have any questions or hair-related problems.
I invite all of you to follow me on Instagram @heatheryacendahair where I show my hair transformations and journey in life!
I wish you all the best as this year comes to a close and in 2020,
Studio H Salon
Sunday, December 1st, noon - 2pm!
