With a name blossomed from the Tom Petty song “Wildflowers,” Maple Street’s staple salon, Wildflowers on Maple is undergoing a total rejuvenation. The salon’s owner Lydia Siven says that a sense of belonging is what her salon passes on to its customers, and being the shop owner allows her to use creativity and be herself at the salon.
After working at the former Cut Up and Style shop for eight years, and now as the proud owner of the renamed shop, Lydia shares a new perspective for the community. She explains, “I reopened in August after the inspiration Tom Petty’s song gave me for the shop’s name. Our shop’s focus on making customers feel like they are at home is a way to make everyone feel welcome. We are all about friends and family.”
Inside the salon, the walls feature many local artists. Their new logo was designed by Sydney Samson who works down the street at Blackwater Ink. Sydney tells us, “She gave me creative freedom with the logo, so that’s really cool. It’s nice when clients put that kind of trust in you. Handwritten lettering always presents a nice, personal touch, which is exactly what Lydia does for her clients.”
Creativity also flows from the rest of the staff, which includes several well-known hair stylists. Becca Bryant, who previously worked at Ladies and Gents, now works part-time at Wildflowers. Lydia tell us, “Becca was my inspiration to be a hairstylist. I changed my major from a registered nurse to become a hairstylist because of her.” In addition, Celia Hughes who focuses on men’s cuts, Ashley Akers, and Kimberly Forbus are also part of the team.
Services include hair coloring and styling, men’s and women’s cuts, children’s cuts, and perms on occasion. Wildflowers also offers the Balayge hair color technique.
In closing, Lydia draws focus on her thankfulness to the community by sharing, “Everyone is willing to help each other. Other business owners have wanted to jump in and help, they want to see me succeed, and that means the world to me.”
