Small Business Stories: Hair Cutting Co.

Celebrate Small Business Month with a haircut from Hair Cutting Co.!

Hair Cutting Co. is located in the heart of downtown Newton at 526 N Main. Shannon Reinert, the owner of Hair Cutting Co., shares some of the highs and lows of being a small business owner.

What is the hardest part about being a small business owner and how do you overcome it?

“The hardest part I’ve experienced so far is trying to be available to fit everyone’s schedule and be available both early mornings and late evenings. Especially with the small but wonderful staff we currently have. We have changed our hours to try and accommodate everyone throughout the week with some early mornings and some late evenings.”

What is your favorite part about being a small business owner?

“Being part of the community. I enjoy watching the downtown grow and supporting the community however I can. Even though I personally may not live in Newton, I feel like I have 2 hometowns to support and love.”
