Sizzor Shak Gives Back on 9-11

Sizzor Shak Salon & Color Spa, located at 208 East Main in historic uptown Collinsville, hosted a special event for service men and women on Saturday, September 11th.

The salon welcomed the area’s brave police officers, fire fighters, and those currently serving in the United States Military with a FREE HAIRCUT.

Kaci Pierce, the salon coordinator, described the idea as the brainchild of stylist, Gretchen Gerstenecker.

“Gretchen came up with this idea last year, and when I approached our other stylists about it, they signed up right away,” said Pierce. “We were all very excited to give back to these men and women.”

Sizzor Shak offered the free haircuts from 2-5pm on Patriot’s Day. Pierce stated, “We will always remember what happened this day nine years ago; we want to honor these men and women for their bravery and patriotism.”

Check out a few of the photos from the event:

Deva Curl Contest Winner

Last month Sizzor Shak Salon and Color Spa had a drawing to win $80 worth of Deva Curl Products. The prize included Deva Curl’s No Poo Cleanser, One Conditioner, Mister Right Curl Revitalizer, AnGel Styling Gel, & a Hobo Bag.

What is so special about the Deva Curl System?

“We took the Poo out of shampoo making it possible to cleanse and hydrate without the use of the harsh detergents that are found in conventional shampoos. Whether your hair is curly, wavy, or chemically processed, there is a Deva product that is right for you! Choose from DevaCurl or DevaCare, and let your hair enjoy the benefits of botanically infused and sulfate-free technology. Depart from the ordinary with our botanically drenched, 100% sulfate free hair care system. Deva removed the harsh, dehydrating detergents that create lather ” which is purely aesthetic and does not clean the hair ” and infused a high concentration of cleansing and moisturizing botanicals that rejuvenate, restore, and respect your hair’s natural order.”

So, congratulations to Holly for winning the Deva products! We hope you enjoy them!!

Win $80 of Deva Curl Products


Are you looking for a hair product that will help tame your massive mane? You’ve met your match!

Come in to Sizzor Shak Salon & Color Spa and enter to win $80 of Deva Curl Products.


Botanically infused and always 100% sulfate-free!

Depart from the ordinary with this exclusively designed hair care system for curly, wavy and chemically processed hair. Deva’s interchangeable product line allows for individuality, simplicity and the freedom to address your hair’s specific needs.

What is in the Deva System? The answer is what is NOT in the Deva System. We took the poo out of shampoo, the harsh lathering and dehydrating detergent found in most shampoos that has no inherent value in the cleansing process. We’ve removed all unnecessary chemicals that often play on hair’s vulnerability. We added extra botanical and moisturizing ingredients that cleanse, condition and re-hydrate the hair, more than any products existing on the market today. Each product has it’s own unique blend that will enhance the overall quality of dehydrated hair.

Drawing rules: Must be a client within the last year in our database to qualify.
