Parkside Homes opened a new beauty shop, Hairsay Salon, on Tuesday, Oct. 30. It is located in the East Hall, also known as the congregate living building, downstairs.

CEO Dawn Vey welcomed guest to the ribbon cutting and then had board member Linda Peters share about the new shop.

“Doris (Arnolds) and I started a plan. It was off and on for quite awhile, but eventually it came to be with the help of the Arnold family, which I so appreciate. I know everyone has wanted a beauty salon here. We just kept plugging along, and I just can’t say enough about the people who have made donations toward it. It’s here and it’s official,” said Peters. “So now instead of getting in a car and having to drive downtown, you can just stroll down the hall.”

Arnold cut the ribbon as community members, Arnold family members, and residents of Parkside Homes looked on and cheered. Afterwards, there were refreshments and a time to visit.

The salon has several stylists on the schedule including Randy Wiens of Silver Sheers. The hours and cell phones numbers for scheduling appointments are located on the door of the beauty shop.
