A cut above the rest

Angie Hatzifotinos Baughman, owner of Jekyll & Hyde Salon , is a Clintonville lifer with deep roots in the community. Just over 4 years ago I walked into an adorable salon and received one of the best cuts I had ever seen my head wear. Her infectious laugh and radiant smile made it easy to come back time and time again.

It has been astounding to watch her grow her business into a new, beautifully restored building adding staff, a spa and continually pushing her education with products and new techniques. Angie's incredible drive as a small business owner and lady boss has certainly inspired us on our hardest days to keep pushing. With every cut we scheduled she offered words of encouragement, support and even her time to help organize nuts and bolts, brainstorming and incredible treats from Fox in the Snow.

On an exceedingly challenging day, she showed up with her shears and gave us an instant pick me up with onsite haircuts. Who does that? Angie does! Because she knows it takes a village. She knows how incredibly difficult it is to just get your doors open and that a fresh cut can bring anyone out of a sweaty, downtrodden funk.

Thank you Angie and your team of greats. You have always been so gracious and kind to our family and we just can't wait to feed you and yours. That's what it's all about. People. People being great to people. Small businesses supporting one another and pushing through to give our little city something else to smile on.
