Monique Barksdale, Owner

Sublime Cutz Hair Salon

New hair salon opens on Main Street By, Debra Ferrell.

On December 6, Monique Barksdale opened a new hair salon called Sublime Cutz at 201 Main Street, Brookneal (former location of It’s a Hair Thing) across from Drug Store Grill.

She is offering color, cuts, relaxers, perms, waxing, facials, and styles for men, women, and children.

Monique has an extensive background in hair and is a former manager of a salon for the Division of Education and worked for several years for Regis Corporation.

Being a mother of two toddlers, she understands how difficult it can be for a busy mother to get away to the salon. She plans on this being a place where customers are welcome to bring their children with them. “This location has a back room where I plan to set up an area for children to play when I’m doing hair for their parents,” she says.

Keeping regular hours is another thing she wants to do to help customers. “I plan to be open Monday - Thursday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Later on when I get going, my goal is to add Friday, Saturday and Sunday,” she adds.

Payment is accepted through cash, money order, or credit cards (a fee is charged for cards). Gift certificates are available.

Walk-in customers are welcome for most services. She may have to set up an appointment for chemical treatments depending on the condition of your hair.

A wide selection of colors and custom colors are available.

“A number of my regular customers come from Brookneal including Tommy English who is one of my biggest clients. They encouraged me to set up a business here,” Monique states. “One of my biggest goals is making the commitment to be here on a regular schedule that customers can count on.”

She will have periodic discounts including the current one for 20% off to the first 20 customers. She plans to run this discount again when she does her January 1 open house.

Monique is experienced with the latest hairstyles for men and women. “A lot of men like the side part, hard part (with a cut), drop fade, and high and tight. Women used to do a lot of sleek hairstyles, but many of them are going natural. Ladies aren’t doing as many perms, but are doing more color. I work with any type of hair.”

Her husband, Shawn Barksdale, who owns/operates “Press4TimeTees” in Halifax County, did her decals for the salon and promotional clothing and items.

His business does a lot of t-shirts, decals, and magazines. “His memorial tees are very popular and feature names of deceased family and friends. He also has a non profit called Acts of Kindness that partners with Channel 13 ABC and Golden Corral.”

Monique is eager to be a part of the Brookneal community and is open to helping with fundraisers. She also is interested in promotional partnering with her neighboring businesses.
