Let R’ Cut Salon has closed its doors in Halfway and re-opened them in Baker City at 2013 First St.
“I loved it here,” said owner Jaycee Clasen. “So once I finished with school and college, I wanted to move here.”
Her parents, Donald and Kelly Higgins, live in Halfway. Kelly is president of Higgins & Associates CPA Inc and Donald owns Smokey Creek Barn Co.
Clasen, 27, is currently only doing haircuts but she plans to either have someone rent booth space for nails and a room for aesthetics — waxing and facials — or she will do those herself.
Clasen, who is licensed in cosmetology, previously divided her time between her salon in Halfway and working at her mom’s accounting firm.
“My space there was a bit smaller too, so I was excited at the opportunity to come in here and have more space and more people working with me eventually,” Clasen said.
She offers men’s and women’s haircuts, coloring, and hair treatments.
Clasen also sells a variety of haircare products for men and women.
She is also able to order skin products if a customer expresses interest.
“Right now I’m not carrying it because I’m just doing hair,” Clasen said.
The inspiration for the name of her salon is the Pendleton Round Up’s slogan, “Let ’er Buck.”
“We’re a country family and love going to Pendleton Round Up, so the Let R’ Buck kind of just connected with me,” Clasen said.
Clasen attended college in Northern California, intending to become a pediatric nurse. She went into cosmetology school at night to work through school and fell in love with it.
“So I just stuck with it,” said Clasen, who grew up in Northern California and moved to Halfway in 2012.
“I grew up around cattle, ranches, and farming. It wasn’t much of a culture shock or anything,” she said.
