The Hair Cafaye hair salon in Greenwood is owned and operated by Faye Terashita, who boasts 30 years experience.

Faye Terashita owner/operator of The Hair Cafaye in Greenwood.

Faye Terashita opened the Hair Cafaye from the family’s Greenwood home in January 2012 when the building where she’d run a salon for many years in Grand Forks was sold.

Faye went into hairdressing right after high school. “I am very experienced with hair,” says Faye. “I have been doing hair for over 30 years. I do all forms of hair styling – perming, cutting, colouring and highlighting.”

Before moving the shop to Greenwood she was owned and operated The Mane Event in Grand Forks for 14 years. When the building sold she saw it as the perfect opportunity to move the business to Greenwood so she could be closer to her husband (Roy) and two boys (Adam and Ronnie). “It’s always nice to be around your family.

There are several other advantages to having the salon in her home.

This is more convenient for her local customers – though she still has some long-term Grand Forks clients who now drive to the Greenwood shop on a regular basis.

Busy mom that she is, Faye is also renovating other parts of the house so she likes to put in some time on that between appointments.

And finally, Faye volunteers at Greenwood Elementary with the Parents Advisory Committee and heads up the school breakfast club, something she’d probably have to forego if she still worked out of town.

The salon is convenient – with a wheelchair accessible side entrance and an adjoining bathroom dedicated to the shop. The Hair Cafaye accepts MasterCard, Visa and Interact.

Along with the usual take-away hair products you would find for sale at a beauty salon Faye also has a display of all-purpose, washable tote bags that she has made. “I heard they were trying to get rid of all the plastic grocery bags and this would be a very eco-friendly kind of thing to do. They are far stronger than what you can buy in the stores.”

Her salon rates are very affordable and they are somewhat variable for the men she said with laugh – if the customer doesn’t have a full head of hair then the price gets clipped as well as his hair.

Faye generally opens the salon Monday through Thursday, but times are flexible. She prefers taking clients by appointment so that it all works into her busy schedule. “I will book after-work appointments as everyone else is busy. It’s a very relaxed atmosphere, comfortable, good prices and I’m pretty darn good at what I do too.”

For all your hair needs – for women, men and children check out The Hair Cafaye at 460 Elkhorn Street in Greenwood. Phone 250-445-6567 for an appointment.
