Business spotlight - Raezors Salon and Spa - By Michelle Libby

Raezors Salon & Spa on Storm Drive in Windham is reinventing itself after 10 years in business. The three stylists have a combined 65 years of experience in the beauty industry and they are soon to be an exclusive Paul Mitchell Focus Salon. 

“We’re very friendly. We make you feel comfortable with New York City professionalism. We take the time to listen,” said stylist Shelley Worthing. 

The salon offers many services like hair, massage, facials and soon they will be adding tanning. 

The look in the salon is bright and cheery, Worthing said. “People really love it.” 

The salon is owned by RaeAnn Gordan, which is where the Rae in Raezors came from. The other stylist is Corbi Duquette, who is also an aesthetician and does facials. Lauren Hebert does massage and Bonnie Gardner Drumm is the permanent cosmetic technician, tattooing on eyeliner or eyebrows. 

The stylists attend a lot of trainings, up to four per year, including some in Europe. “Our cutting skills are primo,” said Worthing. “Color is also a forte of all of ours,” she added. 

Duquette does makeup for wedding, proms and special occasions in addition to her other skills and soon will be doing pedicures. 

While waiting, clients are offered coffee, tea and wine. Each stylist prides herself on assessing a person and determining what would look best on them, taking into consideration in what they would like.  

Looking forward to the spring, Worthing expects that color will be huge. “Coloring is always a great option. They can change a look for as little as $40.” Looking to feel fresh or do something new to get out of the winter doldrums, color could be the right option, Worthing said. The salon also has an ammonia free demi-permanent color line. 

“None of us look at it as our business. We look at it as a craft. We love what we do. We love doing hair,” said Worthing. “We’re not just here to cut your hair. It’s an experience.”

To reach the salon call 893-2226, see them on Facebook or visit 7 Storm Drive. Walk-ins are welcome, but it’s best to make an appointment. 

“They have to wear their hair every day. I want them to love their hair every day,” Worthing concluded. Watch for more about Raezor’s Salon & Spa in future makeover stories.
