I'm Clare, owner and operator of Clare's Hair Affair. I'm passionate about making my clients feel beautiful and confident with their hair. Whether you're looking to add some length to your locks with hair extensions, switch things up with a new hair color, or simply refresh your current look with a cutting-edge hair cut, I've got you covered. My goal is to exceed your expectations and ensure you leave my salon feeling amazing inside and out.


I am located in South West Michigan based out of Portage, at Slate Salon. I have grown and refined my practice and techniques over the years and will continue education to make sure I provide the best services for you.  I have a passion for lived in looks, hair extensions, blondes, and bridal hair. 
My goal is to provide my clients with high end, quality top notch services. I want to make you feel like the best version of yourself!

I am blessed with an amazing husband and 5 wonderful horses Magic, Jazzlyn, Nutmeg, Aria and Jack. In my spare time you can find me in the barn training horses, watching some of my favorite shows, and spending time with loved ones. I also run a horse boarding facility and training program when I am not in the salon! 

I look forward to working with you and making your hair dreams come true! If you are new please reach out with any questions! I look forward to meeting you.
