New Hair Salon Celebrates Grand Opening in Fortville

Wicked Scissors hair salon opened with much fanfare in downtown Fortville, at 218 South main street, August 25 with live music and fun for all.
Owner Holly Schmidt, who also opened HG Studio in Noblesville more than a decade ago, says she’s excited about the new salon and her favorite part has been meeting the people of Fortville.
“This community has welcomed us with open arms,” Holly says. “There is a camaraderie here like no other.”
Maybe it’s her background growing up in a Tipton farming community, but Holly enjoys the community and giving back to the community is important to the stylist, who has been focused on make-up and hair styling since she was a little girl.
“It is very important to me to give back to the community,” Holly says. “My guests in the salon are important to me, they are my livelihood. I always say be grateful and give back.”
Her salon has that same community feel, too. It is not all booth rentals as in most salons, but the stylists all work together and share in the success of Wicked Scissors.
“We all plan to be community-minded and hopefully work with some charitable organizations and community outreaches together,” Holly says.
Holly’s artistic side also shines through in the new salon. She arranged the black and white framed photos on the red velvet wall as you enter the salon, and she put together the black and white photo collage wall at the back of the salon.
“Those are all faces of family and friends,” Holly says.
Holly still plans to be at the HG Studio in Noblesville, on Mondays and Tuesdays and will be at the Fortville salon the rest of week.
“We are still adjusting to what days of the week and hours are good for the people of this community,” Holly says. “So it may change, but right now we are open Tuesday through Saturday.”
Wicked Scissors employs seven stylists now and hopes to add more in the future.
The salon offers its own Biomineral Technology Haircare and styling products such as Verb Ghost oil, which is a Moroccan oil blend to add shine to the hair without coating it with wax.
Salon services are offered for both men and women. Wicked Scissors Hair Salon is located at 218 South Main Street in Fortville. You can give them a call at 317-505-9152 or visit them online at wickedscissors.com for more information.
