Susan's Story

I have always been interested in hair design and the fashion industry!

After graduating from Marinello Beauty School (don't bother looking it up, because they are long closed now, LOL), I worked as a Master Colorist in one of Cincinnati's most prestigious salons.  Modeling both fashions and hair designs led me to work with the leading beauty companies, learning how to train individuals to use professional hair, skin and nail products.  As an educator, I was able to set the bar for success by working on the stage platform creating the trendy styles  and rubbing elbows with some of "The Greatest Salon Owners" of the time.  This gave me the valuable knowledge I needed to open my first salon; Hairline I was opened on May 1st, 1982.  Many have asked over the years if there ever was or will be a Hairline II.  Well, many years ago I did own a second local salon for a short period of time, but I couldn't be in two places at one time so I sold the second salon to one of the stylists who kept the business going for many years until they retired. 

As we begin to enter our 37th year of my 5 year plan I look back, smile and think to myself I must have done something right.  My success I feel is due to my great love and commitment of the beauty industry and the intense training of my staff.  Upon my retirement from behind the chair at the end of 2014, I left knowing I trained my staff to be strong and take over for the next 30+ years.

At Hairline I & Nailcrafters, we consider our clients as guests and each member of our staff a partner/family.   We promise to provide you with the best hair, skin and nail care products and services in the industry.  We want your salon experience to be wonderfully satisfying, making our salon your destination. 

Keep Conditioning!


Susan F. Breslin Obituary

We will miss you, Susan


Susan Frances Breslin (nee Stoddard) passed away on January 21, 2020 after battling Alzheimer’s disease and Leukemia.  She was born in 1940 to Helen and Jack Stoddard of Mt. Healthy.  After high school, she earned her cosmetology license.  In 1982, she decided she didn’t really like working for others, so she opened Hairline I in Finneytown, OH.  She treated this as an opportunity to help out her clients and mentor numerous stylists and staff.  As she always thought she could do anything she set her mind to, she spent time as a substitute teacher (she was capable of welding) and a soccer coach (she never played a minute).  An avid gardener, she and Dick spent huge amounts of time in their backyard caring for numerous varieties of plants, flowers, trees and shrubs.  She loved experiencing new things, places and cultures.  She and Dick traveled the world and spent time on all seven continents throughout her life.  She is survived by her husband, Richard (Dick) Breslin, son, Patrick (Lisa Brinkman Breslin), and daughter, Heather Breslin Hogan (Kenneth Hogan).  She dearly loved her five grandchildren: Mackenzie Hogan, Peyton Hogan, Kennedy Hogan, Carter Breslin and Trevor Breslin.
