If they can turn a plumbing shop into a salon, imagine what they can do with hair.
A group of stylists are behind the transformation that’s taken place in the former spot of Chris Johnson Plumbing.
True Salon|Spa opened at the end of September at 2009 Portland Ave., behind Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts.
It is owned by Maile Parker, who pulled together ideas from three other stylists and friends: Cassi Puller, Brittany Culver and Kristen Covarrubias.
“We wanted to create just a nice cozy, quiet relaxing salon, with a spa-like feel, while offering top quality services at an affordable and fair price,” Culver said in an email.
Two other stylists have joined the team since the opening. Nici Goff and Brittany Moody also offer their services at True. Licensed massage therapist Andrew Gately was announced as the latest member to join earlier this month with massage services available nights and weekends.
True services include hair cutting, coloring, styling, facial waxing and texturing services for men, women and children, plus the massage therapy.
The opening came after a major remodel at the shop. Half of the building was dedicated to the plumbing operation, and the other half was an old garage, Culver said. Most of the construction was undertaken by Parker’s husband, Steven Parker, and Puller’s husband, Zack Witcher, who worked on the project after their full-time day jobs for UPS.
The salon is open seven days a week. For more information call 540-3188.
