The Chopping Block✂                        



  I have been a licensed Cosmetologist for 14 years now, & I am incredibly grateful to be able to do something I love, & have such a passion for. The joy I get from working with other people, & getting to create something personal has allowed me to find my niche.

While there are many aspects in this industry that I love, working with short hair has been my favorite thus far. Therefore, my specialty is with Men's Cuts /Color, & Gray Blending, Clipper Cuts, & Children's Haircuts.

This has allowed me the freedom to explore my creative side, & has kept me challenged. I have had an amazing journey thanks to all of my clients, & friends that I have encountered along the way. I welcome new clients to make an appointment for some hair love today! 

Look forward to seeing you in the chair!   X~ April

Why would I have anyone else cut my hair? Great conversationalist, sparkling personality AND does a great job. . . (and a hug afterwards. . . )

I started going to April years ago and would rather cut my own hair before letting anyone but her touch it again. She has an eye for detail that is unmatched, a encyclopedic knowledge of hair styling, and often makes fantastic suggestions which have taken me into new areas I didn't even know would work for me. Bottom line, April is an absolute master of her craft. Every single time she cuts my hair people compliment it. If that isn't enough, she is likely one of the nicest people you'll meet. There is a reason a lot of business people I know wait until they fly in to RDU once a month to get their hair cut by her! Make an appointment and you won't be sorry.

April has styled my hair on at least 10 occasions this past year. She is quality-oriented and takes the time to produce outstanding results. April's prices are reasonable and she never double-books appointments. In addition, she is very nice. In just two minutes, I will schedule my next appointment. I look forward to another beautiful hairstyle.

April is a hair magician! She has done wonders with my color, leaving my hair a beautiful chocolate brown for fall and effectively hiding my natural red tones that I’m not a fan of. I have received so many compliments! My teenage son won’t go anywhere else to have his hair cut either. She listens, asks questions, and takes the time to fully understand the desired outcome before beginning the cut. She also stops to ask questions along the way, not assuming anything, to make sure they’re on the same page. She is a skilled hair artist, and combined with her friendly and welcoming personality, would be a great choice for anyone looking for a cut or color.

Back then they didn't want me, went to the Chopping Block now they all on me. April is almost too good at what she does. After I got my fresh cut from her the other day I was the one getting cat called, and I'm a guy!

Fabulous. First time visit, exceptional experience. No aspect about the visit was less than spectacular. April treats you like a long time friend, puts you at ease in the chair and delivers amazing results. Thank you so much! See you soon!

April is by far the most passionate stylist I have ever been to. She gets excited about how your hair will look. I had never had highlights and she suggested them. I loved them! Everyone at work said I looked younger and who doesn't like to hear that! April is just the sweetest person. Since I have gone to her I have referred a few friends who love her as much as I do. I would recommend April to everyone! She's the best there is.
