Hair Taylors opens doors to other stylists  Dawn Roberts, of Hair Taylors, 4633 14 Mile Road in the Cedar Rock business district, doesn’t consider others stylists competition, instead she opened her doors to stylists from another salon to offer their customers the most experience under one roof. After Roberts closed her salon in the Alpine area, she chose the Cedar Rock area to re-open because of the population and growth in the area. In her new location, she invited stylists and owner Donna Livingston, from M.J. Dalton—another salon that had closed—to join her. Livingston has been licensed since 1981 and owned M.J. Dalton for 13 years. She closed the salon on November 1 of this year to focus on clients and family. She joined the team at Hair Taylors and kept the same business phone so her clients could still reach her for specials such as $10 Tuesday. Now the staff includes stylists with a combined 125 years of experience and diverse skills and specialties. All are board certified. Sharing the space are Roberts, Tara Witt, Nicole Cooper, Karen Scheidel, Kelly Deyman, Roxy Sherwin, Cheryl George, Komila Pate, Susan Reason and Donna Livingston. “The salon atmosphere is sometimes full of laughter and is relaxed and enjoyable,” said Roberts. She said the stylists there are eager to please each customer. Their clientele range from children to the mature client. “Merging with each other allows us to promote our skills and services,” Roberts said. “Instead of being competitive we have come together.” Roberts invites residents to watch for their ads for specials during the holidays. “We are here to serve the community the best we know how.” Hair Taylors is open Monday through Friday at 9 a.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. They can be reached by telephone at (616) 696-2096 or by email at
