New salon opens
Melissa Slade has moved her full-service salon, officially opening Sevens Studio on Friday at 777 Pearce Hollow Road near Home.
Licensed in 2001, Slade opened The Hollow Hair Design and Tanning Salon in her home in 2010, but has chosen a new location.
The salon offers nails, pedicures, men and women’s haircuts, color, waxing, permanent hair removal, facial peels and spray tanning.
Slade now employs a cosmetologist, Chrissy Boyer, and a nail technician, Lexie Blose.
She said she plans to expand the salon into a spa offering massage and facials. Eventually she’d like to incorporate a side business, Your Event Planners — which offers bridal/wedding services — into the shop.
Slade said a consignment/retail shop will be going in part of the downstairs sometime next year.
