NEWPORT — While there are half a dozen local hair salons, it’s Connie’s Cuts that gets the guys. After 18 years of business, owner Connie Hamilton attracts a steady male clientele that appreciates how she does their hair.

Longtime customer Neil Bennett has had Connie cut his hair for 15 years. “She cuts my hair the way I like it cut. She takes her time and does a good job,” he said.

Hamilton also said that she enjoys having little customers.

“We have fun. They’re just so cute and sweet,” she said of her child customers.

Hamilton doesn’t do shampoos or blow dry her customers’ hair. She said she prefers to “keep it simple.”

“I don’t know fancy new hairstyles,” she said with a laugh.

Hamilton went into the hair business years ago as a high schooler, and came back to it as a mother who needed to make a better living. She has developed such a busy clientele that she has to rush to grab lunch whenever she can squeeze it in between customers, she said. Hamilton supports other local businesses by holding a monthly drawing for a $20 gift certificate to a local business of the winner’s choice. She also recently teamed up with the Roxy Theater to offer one movie ticket per customer for haircuts she gives on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Hamilton said she has about 20 tickets left this month.

The down-to-earth barber shop offers free popcorn, laughs, and a good time, said Hamilton. She distributes Young Living Essential Oils and plans on holding monthly classes at her barber shop soon. Connie’s Cuts is located at 104 S. Washington Ave. in Newport and is open Tuesday and Wednesday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. To learn more, call 509-671-6179 or go to Connie’s Cuts on Facebook.
