Hire the Pro


I am the face behind TheSecretMane professional services.  My name is Charlene.  I freelance in salons throughout Pennsylvania and New York City.  I also go to clients’ salons or their locations for an additional fee plus travel expense.

I can do many Cosmetology services such as:

  • ombré hair coloring
  • balayage hair coloring
  • brazilian hair straightening
  • barbering
  • permanent waves
  • relaxers
  • gel manicures
  • waxing
  • facials
  • blowouts
  • haircuts 
  • for any genders and ethnicities, in addition to my hair extension and hair loss solution specialities.

The prices for regular salon services would be according to the salon’s menu in that particular location.  For hair extension and hair loss solution prices, it’s the cost of a women’s long hair cut and style (in that particular location) times 3 which totals to the per hour charge as this service typically lasts an average of 3 months.  I have had clients worn their hair extensions for up to 12 months, but for human hair extensions, I recommend, the safest to keep it for is 3 months.  The cost for the hair is separate and can be provided by the customer plus the installation/removal products.  For those customers bringing their own hair, I’m sorry but I cannot guarantee the quality of the outcome, other than my own.  Being a hair extension aficionado with a vast collection of hair extensions over the past 2 decades, I have tried many others, but the brands below are no comparison.  I hope you will consider those.

My unique characteristic is listening carefully to the needs of the clients and guiding them throughout their entire service.  I particularly work with those who fear to have their hair cut or color due to numerous bad experiences.  I know what it feels like to get a bad haircut and hair color only to resort to wearing hair extensions for months or even years.  Mind you, I cannot be rushed.  I am very dedicated and expect the same dedication of care and maintenance for the service(s) I will provide for you.  I am honest and will be upfront if the service required is not my forte.  And yes, I am willing to entertain reasonable offers from students, single parents and/or struggling entrepreneurs.

To book a salon appointment, please call/text me (570) 350-1113.  And please do leave a message.  I look forward to working with you! ~❤Charlene Blacer
