Hair Ink's Robin Snyder follows her own vision in an unusual place | Women in Business

  • Jun 24, 2013 at 10:35AM

Robin Snyder fought the idea at first. It would be weird, she said, to set up her own hair salon inside North Bend Automotive, the business owned and operated by her friends and clients, the Dennis family. "I woke up one morning and thought, 'Why does it have to be weird?'" said Snyder. "It suits my personality, anyway: Different." Snyder is the hair artist and sole owner at Hair Ink, located inside North Bend Automotive. Snyder describes her look as modern, maybe even eccentric. This place is her creation, from the lighting and layout to the quote on the wall and the floral arrangements that echo the peacock feather in her hair.

  • Jun 25, 2013 at 2:44PM

As last days of school go, this one had it all—happy, hugging students, silly T-shirts, a driveway full of waiting cars, and the traditional playing of Alice Cooper’s “Schools Out.” But the students weren’t the only ones saying good-bye last Tuesday, June 11, when school ended in the Snoqualmie Valley School District. Most of the teachers and staff at Snoqualmie Middle School were also leaving the school, for new positions at Chief Kanim Middle School and Twin Falls Middle School. The building will re-open next fall as a freshman campus of Mount Si High School, so its last day was one of mixed feelings for everyone who called it home.
