The Cutting Edge A “cut above the rest” in Warwick


The calming aroma of a red berry and cedar-scented candle fills your senses as soon as you pass through the doors of The Cutting Edge, a family hair salon on Warwick’s busy Post Road. Immediately, the cares of the world seem to roll off your back as you enter this sunlit, warm and immaculate studio which is the lifeblood and heart of its owner, Kristin Gordon. Everything about this studio, from the refreshment bar to the family-friendly waiting area to the elegant styling stations, was designed intentionally to make Kristin’s clients feel at home, relaxed and ready to be pampered.

The Cutting Edge, which was opened just over a year ago, is home to longtime stylist Kristin and two additional stylists, Alison James and Kristine Johnson. The combined years of these talented and experienced stylists make them hard to beat as a team. They are up-to-date on all the latest trends in colors, cuts, techniques, products and styles, and are just as comfortable creating the bold ombré effect as they are the more traditional, “old-school” permanent. Most importantly, they listen to the clients and are committed to helping them achieve the specific look they want.

Now, with spring finally beginning to show its colors, it is a perfect time to add some color into your life or to impress your loved ones with a new look! Also, with prom and wedding season upon us, there is no better time than now to take a spin in the styling chair of one of Cutting Edge’s stylists. If you are getting married this spring or summer, consider bringing your whole wedding party in for a session of styling!

The Cutting Edge offers a wide variety of services from facial waxes and foils, to manicures and pedicures, to your child’s first haircut. Kristin Gordon is a mother of three, including one-year old Scarlett and her older siblings, Jacob and Aubrie, and she knows that first haircuts are milestone events in their lives. Being a mother has taught Kristin how to make this a happy experience for your child, and she joins her whole staff in ensuring that no matter your age, you will love your time (and your results!) at The Cutting Edge.

The Cutting Edge is located at 1497 Post Road near the entrance to Route 37. Hours are Tuesday – Thursday, 9:00am – 7:00pm, Friday, 9:00am – 6:00pm, & Saturday, 9:00am – 5:00pm. Walk-ins are welcome! Call 732-7772, email Kristin at and look for frequent specials on their facebook® page.

Men, women and children are all welcome at this “cutting edge” salon ~ and all are invited to come in and escape the pressures of the world, even if only for an hour or two!

As always, discounts are available for military personnel and senior citizens. If interested in renting a chair, give Kristin a call!
