One Needy Family, One Giving Community

One Needy Family, One Giving Community

Kutting Edge Salon and Spa sponsored a fundraiser for a local Cache Valley family. The family had lost their home and all possessions in a fire just before the holidays and the Kutting Edge girls wanted to help.  With assistance from many others in the community, the family received numerous donations to help them get back on their feet.

We at the Kutting Edge were so overwhelmed with gratitude for all of the wonderful giving people who donated to the family. We would like to extended our appreciation to everyone. 
We thank you for your kindness.

A few Local Businesses chipped in to help out! Here are a few who gave donations.

The Mattress Factory

On behalf of all us at the Kutting Edge, 
We'd like to wish you a Happy Safe Halloween!

It's Halloween! It's Halloween!
The moon is full and bright
And we shall see what can't be seen
On any other night.

Skeletons and ghosts and ghouls,
Grinning goblins fighting duels,
Werewolves rising from their tombs,
Witches on their magic brooms.

In masks and gowns
we haunt the street
And knock on doors
for trick or treat.

Tonight we are
the king and queen,
For oh tonight
it's Halloween!

Happy Halloween

When witches go riding,
and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers,
‘tis near Halloween.

How to give a Self Breast Exam

Breast Cancer is a scary phenomenon that is becoming more and more common.   We ladies need to protect ourselves by doing monthly self-breast exams
Here are some tips on how check yourself.

Provided as a Service From Wyeth-Ayerst Laboratories

Raise one arm. With fingers flat, touch every part of the breast, gently feeling for a lump or thickening. Use your right hand to examine your left breast, your left hand for your right breast.

With arms at your sides, then raised above your head, look carefully for changes in the size, shape, and contour of each breast. Look for puckering, dimpling, or changes in skin texture.

Gently squeeze both nipples and look for discharge.
Place a towel or pillow under your right shoulder and your right hand behind your head. Examine your right breast with your right hand.

Fingers flat, press gently in small circles, starting at the outermost top edge of your breast and spiraling in toward the nipple. Examine every part of the breast. Repeat with left breast.
With your arm resting on a firm surface, use the same circular motion to examine the underarm area. This is breast tissue, too.
 And don't forget...

 Come On Ladies- A monthly Self Breast Exam is worth Saving your life.

The ABCDE's of Melanoma

With Cancer on the mind this month, 
we thought we might give you some tips on how to watch for
and the signs you need to get checked. 

Warning Signs: The ABCDEs of Melanoma

Moles, brown spots and growths on the skin are usually harmless — but not always. Anyone who has more than 100 moles is at greater risk for melanoma. The first signs can appear in one or more atypical moles. That's why it's so important to get to know your skin very well and to recognize any changes in the moles on your body. Look for the ABCDEs of melanoma, and if you see one or more, make an appointment with a physician immediately.
melanoma picture.jpg


If you draw a line through this mole, the two halves will not match.
melanoma picture.jpg


The borders of an early melanoma tend to be uneven. The edges may be scalloped or notched.
melanoma picture.jpg


Having a variety of colors is another warning signal. A number of different shades of brown, tan or black could appear. A melanoma may also become red, blue or some other color.
melanoma picture.jpg


Melanomas usually are larger in diameter than the size of the eraser on your pencil (1/4 inch or 6 mm), but they may sometimes be smaller when first detected.
melanoma picture.jpg



Any change — in size, shape, color, elevation, or another trait, or any new symptom such as bleeding, itching or crusting — points to danger.

The BEST way to know if you need to see a Dermatologist is the ask yourself the 3 important questions:   Is the spot I see NEW? GROWING? or CHANGING?
if it is one for more of the following, go get your skin checked.

 Keep your eyes peeled for more ways to protect yourself for different cancers.

Cancer Checks

Its Cancer Awareness  month, 
Which means it is a great time for us to think about keeping oursleves healthy by scheduling the recommended Cancer Checks. The following are recommended procedures for women.  Make sure to read them and schedule the appointments you need to keep yourself healthy, happy, and Beautiful

Pap Smear for Cervical Cancer

A Pap smear is a highly effective test that screens for cervical cancer in women. The test involves the collecting of cells from the cervix to be examined under a microscope. It is not a diagnostic test, however. That means that if any abnormalities are discovered, more testing will be needed to make a formal diagnosis.

Pelvic Exam for Gynecologic Cancers

A regular pelvic exam is necessary for all women. A pelvic exam is one of the first steps in diagnosing several conditions such as gynecologic cancers and sexually transmitted diseases. How often a woman needs a pelvic exam varies depending on her risk factors for certain conditions and previous exam findings. A pelvic exam is often accompanied by the Pap smear.

Mammogram for Breast Cancer

Women who are over 40 or at high risk for developing breast cancer need to have a regular mammogram. A screening mammogram is able to detect breast abnormalities that could signal breast cancer. Aside from regular mammograms, women of all ages should perform monthly breast self exams to check for abnormalities.

Colonoscopy or Other Recommended Colon Cancer Screening Test

Several tests are available to screen for colon cancer. Your doctor will recommend a colon cancer screening test based on your colon cancer risk factors, age and general health. Common examples of colon cancer screening tests include colonoscopy and fecal occult blood tests.
Colon cancer screening normally begins for men and women who are over 50. However, those who are at an increased risk for the disease may begin screening earlier.

Clinical Skin Exam for Skin Cancer

You should check your skin for abnormalities every month at home. Each year, however, you should have a clinical skin exam. During a clinical skin exam, a doctor visually

"Not many people love their jobs
like hairdressers do!"

Here is some of the reasons the stylists at the 
Kutting Edge love their job...

" My favorite thing about being a hairdresser is when you completely make over someone's look and they are "Awe Struck" over the change you did for them."  -- KIM

" I love making my clients look and feel better about themselves! I do what I love and I love what I do!" -- KERI

" I love experiencing all the milestones with my clients; from proms and graduation to weddings and babies." - BECCA

" I enjoy having a huge influence in how others see themselves! I know I make a difference everyday that so many other professionals never do." -- TIFFANY B.

" I love being able to provide a relaxing experience. I can feel the stress dissipate as I give a scalp massage and help my clients unwind." -- MEGAN

" My favorite think about being a hairdresser is meeting new people and hearing their stories.  I enjoy people and talking with them.   I love being in a creative environment where people trust me, and are wiling to let me do what I think will look best for them."  -- AMBER

" I love my job because it doesn't feel like a job.  I love the personal interaction I get with so many wonderful people and the  things I learn from each of them.  I love teaching them how to get the best possible results from what they have to work with." -- SARAH

Fall Skin Care Tips!

Fall Skin Care Tips
As we head into the fall months, the weather changes and so does our skin.  The dry cold weather, combined with the dry furnace air tends to dry out our skin and make it flaky, chapped, and not looking our best! Its important to make the right changes in our skin care regimen to keep our skin looking as healthy, youthful, and beautiful as you are!
1.      Reassess your Body Cleanser.  In the spring and summer, fruity body washes are popular treat, but as you move into fall, you’ll want to make sure that it isn’t too drying for your skin.  Make sure to pick a body wash that is soap free, as well as moisturizing. This will help to keep your skin moisturized and avoid the chapping of colder weather.  

2.      Moisturize daily.  Find yourself a good daily moisturizer and apply it to the entire body daily.  Use a liberal amount is area if high movement such as elbows and knees.  This will help prevent the dry flaking skin that dry fall and winter weather brings.  Some of our favorite Moisturizers are Bioelements (they have a bunch, each one to target a different skin type), L’ANZA’s Healing Moisture Hand treatment, Eufora’s Body blends face and body moisturizer, and Hemps body lotion! All can be found at the Kutting Edge Salon and Spa

3.      Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate.  Make sure to exfoliate your skin 2-3 times weekly.  By buffing away the dry dead skin cells that are sitting on top of your skin, you can let your soft healthy skin show through. Your soft healthy skin is more likely to absorb your moisturizer and give you the optimum results! 

4.      Help heal the cracks.  As our skin dries out, sometimes cracking can occur in places such as hands, elbows, and the heels on the feet. If this occurs, we recommend applying a liberal amount of petroleum jelly (Try Vaseline or Aquaphor) nightly until it is healed completely.  It may help to cover the area after you apply the ointment to help it absorb.

5.      Don’t forget the sunscreen!  Even though the sun isn’t burning bright, the UV rays are still shining through the clouds and you are still accruing sun damage.  It is best to apply an SPF 30 or higher daily to all sun exposed areas, and reapply throughout the day as needed.  We suggest finding a daily moisturizer with a sunscreen in it! This way, you are saving a step and are more likely to remember! 

6.     Take care of those luscious lips! Don’t let your lips be forgotten, as the weather gets chilly!  Make sure to keep a good moisturizing lip balm on those lips at all times to avoid chapping and cracking (a balm with a sunscreen is even better!)  And to keep them super soft, use a lip exfoliant.  We like Bioelements Lip Buff- you can pick it up in our salon! 

Your skin is one of your best accessories!   
Don’t let it be forgotten as you transition from summer to fall!

Stop by the Kutting Edge Salon and Spa and visit with one of our Estheticians to get one-on-one tips on how to best take care of your special skin type!  You can also schedule a relaxing facial and head into fall with your face looking its best!

The Shampoo Epiphany

Lorraine, the original Curly Girl, shares a shampoo secret with us.
Now, it may seem a little unconventional, 
but we promise it is a tip that will change your life as a Curly Girl forever.

Here's Lorraine's "Shampoo Epiphany!"
"In the bad old days, I would subject my scalp and hair to a vigorous lathering once or twice a week, for no good reason except force of habit. Afterward, for the frist twenty-four hours, my hair would appear to float in space like a helium balloon, defying the laws of gravity, because I had ruffled the surface cuticle and dehydrated the curls.

Another three days would go by before my hair had recovered enough from its trauma that I was ready to admit we were related. Then we'd happily coexist for the rest of the week, until it was time (according to my self-imposed regimen) for my next shampoo. And the vicious cycle would begin all over again.

I followed this routine unquestioningly, because I'd never found any care instructions that addressed the specific needs of curly, as opposed to straight, hair. Then on fateful morning I looked in the mirror and realized my hair looked fabulous. According to my schedule, I was due for a shampoo, but I couldn't bear to mess with success. I dared myself to wait another day. One stretched into a second, then a third, until I'd managed to hold our for almost three weeks. My hair had never looked better, so I decided to initiate an experiment: I would declare my hair a shampoo-free zone and see how long I could refrain from washing it with detergent.

Now shampoo is a total no-no in my home. I don't use it at all anymore, not even a drop. I work up a sweat running most mornings, I eat in smoky European restaurants, and I swim in the ocean not far from my home. Yet my friends assure me that I pass the sniff test. My hair and scalp don't smell- and my hair has never looked better.

Kutting Edge's Thoughts: It's okay to use a NON LATHERING cleanser for your hair- if you make sure it is sulfate and sodium sulfate free! Make sure this is the case if you decide to wash- keep it gentle and don't be afraid to water down a cleanser if you feel it needs it. Always follow with a good moisturizing conditioner, preferably one that is thick and rich. Make sure to read your labels."

Our favorite Cleansers for Curly Hair (if you decide you need it) are...
(these cleansers are from Lorraine's curly girl product line Deva Curl)
