What’s a Rich Text element?



The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

It would be troubling to go more than thirty minutes away just to get your hair cut. Although Columbus might not be the first place that comes to mind when figuring where to get your hair done, if you are looking for something right around the corner from you, or just a short walk or drive, we’d recommend taking a look at these places located in the Short North neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio.

PENZONE Salon + Spa Short North

A hair salon that treats you well, and serves you wine as you wait.

Address: 967 N High Street, Short North, Columbus, OH 43201

Phone: (614) 418-5350


With five other locations scattered around the Columbus area, Penzone Salon + Spa continues to provide outstanding service to all. The staff are more than willing to help accommodate any need, and they even have a matching service on their website where you can learn about each stylist and pick one that you feel most comfortable with. Located right in the artsy district of the city, you’ll enjoy every service each stylist will provide for you. 

From hair to nails, to bridal services and other special occasion makeup, you won’t find one thing that this salon does not provide already. For the lovely stylists at Penzone, they will never let you walk out of the salon without feeling that confidence you have been wanting to feel for a while.

After trying out several salons in the Columbus area, I decided to try Penzone. I am pretty picky about where I get my hair done and it took some trial and error after I moved to the city. I've now had my hair dyed and cut twice there with Andy and I absolutely love it!  - Yelp Review

I was really pleased with my cut from Minnie! I was in town for a conference and needed to get a trim. I haven't had such an in depth and attentive consultation from a stylist in years! Minnie really was giving me the perfect balance of providing professional input and opinions…”! - Yelp Review

 Cut ‘N Blow

Address: 1244 N High St. Columbus, OH 43201

Phone: (614) 824-1619


If you could pick anywhere in the world to go to get your hair done, it would probably be New York City. However, instead of paying for a plane ticket, you can still feel like you are in New York at Cut ‘N Blow salon. For a limited time only, each stylist has their own set schedule. Their services are all reasonably priced. While you get the feeling of being in New York, you still get to stay in Columbus and pay less for haircuts and other services as well.

This place is a hidden GEM. I moved into the neighborhood and wanted something local and easy to walk to. The second you walk in your are greeted by friendly staff members making sure you are comfortable and have a beverage. - Yelp Review.

No matter what service you request from this salon, you will definitely get bang for your buck! (No pun intended). BangSTUDIOS is happy to provide creative services that take pride in the special techniques that they have mastered and want to show off to you. With some limitations, the salon is happy to accommodate.

Tried this place on a whim/recommendation from a friend, and I'm so glad I did! I went in with bright red and red violet hair, and Rob was able to turn it back into a warm brown with warm balayage tones in just one session per my request. Personable, professional, and a calm atmosphere. I will definitely be going back. Thank you, Rob! - Yelp Review.

Rendezvous is a unique salon, affordable, accepting, and part of the community. Also the atmosphere of the shop is cute, quirky, and sparkly. But there are taxidermy animals so beware if you are sensitive to that. Highly recommend! - Yelp Review

Jessi did a fantastic job on my ombré color and cut. I have been going to a large local salon for years and finally pulled the trigger to change salons and I was not disappointed. - Yelp Review.

Address: 820 N High St. Columbus, OH 43215



There are plenty of salons that are popping up nowadays that specialize in mainly one thing. For Jade Lauren, her salon focuses mainly on balayages and other services dedicated to women only. One of the nice things about the services is that there’s an option to have a session where you do not have to talk to your stylist -- which is especially good if you are an introvert!

I had the most amazing experience today! Everything from the consultation to the blow out was exceptional! I’ve never felt more like myself with this new hair color. It feels very lived in and natural, just like myself! I would recommend all my friends to Jade Lauren!! - Balay Bar review.

On a budget? That’s okay, stylists like Ashlea are more than happy to help accommodate. From the most popular services to the most basic of cuts and dyes, pricing is never an issue with Ashlea’s salon. There are many ways to help make yourself have a great before and after, especially with Ashlea, where she will make your hair fabulous and budget friendly.

As a curly girl I use a lot of products that build up in my scalp throughout the year, but especially during winter. I started getting a lot of dandruff lately and it was getting to me. I decided to get a scalp treatment from Ashley, and let me tell you my scalp never felt more fresh. She removed all the mineral buildup and conditioned/hydrated my ends to give them life. - Yelp Review.
