The Owners


Cassie Hallum and Stephany Hardin were born and raised in the Bakersfield area. The stylists/owners have happily worked with local clients for over 10 years. When Cassie and Stephany met in 2010, they quickly formed a bond over their hyper focuses on quality, client experience and client satisfaction. Their interests in self-improvement and continuous learning also proved to be a powerful common thread in their journey. 

To take their strengths and passions to the next level, Cassie and Stephany decided to work on a shared vision. Together, they committed to a 5 year goal to launch a client-centered local salon. With hard work, perseverance, and the support of their families and friends they achieved their goal within 3 years. Cassie and Stephany created Primary the Salon in 2019 based on three core values: Client Trust, Quality Service, and Team Learning and Engagement. They believe Primary the Salon has the potential to transform clients' lives and for that reason they work each day to integrate these core values into the salon.  

Cassie graduated from the Paul Mitchell The School at Santa Barbara and Stephany graduated from (insert school name). Both owners/stylists are trained in Brazilian Blowout and are Wella educated. Stephany is certified by Platform hair extensions in hand-tied weft extensions. Cassie and Stephany attend the ISSE hair show in Long Beach every year to receive education on safety, trending styles, and best-in-class products. Cassie and Stephany both reside in Bakersfield with their families and are strong supporters of other local businesses.
