Stylist Jaye Cannon-Allee joins Bridaley's salon
By Carolyn B. Edwards BCC Staff Writer
She's got 31 years of experience and is a second generation hair stylist, so Jaye Cannon-Allee brings a wealth of knowledge to better serve her customers at Bridaley's Hair Studio in Pipe Creek.
"My dad had a shop in Helotes for many years," said Allee, so her career seems like a natural. However, she admits that when she was a teenager she swore that the last thing she would ever do for a living was other people's hair.
Allee's dad, John Cannon, owned and operated Cannon Style Salon for decades in the San Antonio suburb.
At some point, Allee decided that maybe dad's life long occupation was not such a bad choice after all. Her skills run the gamut from cuts, styling and up dos. "I'd have to say my favorites are foils and color," she said. "I enjoy changing someone's look by brightening their hair with low lights or high lights, or changing the color entirely."
Allee has kept abreast of the latest developments in styling by attending hair shows, and taking cutting, coloring and hi-lighting classes.
"I enjoy coming to work every day," she said. "At this stage in my life I've realized more and more what I'm blessed with." Those blessings include a loving husband, one son and two rescue dogs.
Bridaley's, pronounced bri-DAY-leez, gets its name from a combination of the names of owner Amber Cox's three children. Cox opened the shop in 2006. It is conveniently located at 10915 Hwy 16 South about a mile from the stoplight at the Pipe Creek post office.
"We promote Redken and Purology products," said Cox. "Our nail tech uses OPI products and does shellac and solar nails." Tina Kovach, the nail tech, also does relaxing facials, spa pedicures and waxing.
Everyone in the shop is an independent operator, so hours vary, "but there is almost always someone here," said Cox.
Customers of all ages will feel welcome in the spacious and attractively decorated salon, complete with four styling stations, and the nail and spa pedicure center. Facials and waxing are done in a more private area off the main room.
Lakehills and Pipe Creek residents don't have to travel to the city to look good. Call Bridaley's at 830-510-2425 to set an appointment. You'll be pleased at how good you look and feel!
