At BeBe Salon’s recent grand opening event, co-owners Betsy Wright and Bethany Blair bet that even in a apprehensive economy, the beauty industry can bounce back just like well-styled curls.
Wright and Blair worked together at three different salons before deciding to start their own business, and have been conducting extensive renovations at the new store to make the most of their space. The remodeling continued even after BeBe Salons March 27 soft opening but is finally complete, making the grand opening event a special one for the owners, who are working very hard to set themselves apart.
Says Blair, “We are just trying to be a very friendly, upbeat, welcoming salon.”
If the attendance at the event was any indication, it seems to be working. Nearly 200 people turned out to take advantage of free chair massages, goodie bags, refreshments, and prize drawings for gift baskets.
The owners are optimistic about their new venture. “I guess women will always want to be beautiful,” said Blair.
BeBe Salon features six stylists and a full-time massage therapist and is located at 1714 W. Broadway, beside Bella Roma Pizza.
