Untamed enthusiasm

. March 5, 2013.

Sisters Alicia and Lauren Henderson named their business Untamed Salon in a nod to the animal prints that decorate their newly opened space. But “untamed” also describes their  enthusiasm for the business they dreamt about while attending beauty school and working at local chain salons. “We had plenty of experience in different salons, and knew we wanted to have our own salon — one that was different,” Lauren says. “We painted, re-floored the space, painted the stripes in our parking lot, and even cut down 21 trees on the property. This really is a labor of love.”

The salon boasts a waxing room, tilting padded shampoo bowls (“no sore necks here!”) and a “color bar,” a counter with space for a laptop or paperwork for clients to use while having their hair dyed. “We bring the dryers to the client, so they don’t have to sit in one place as the color sets.” The salon offers false eyelash services, corrective color services, conditioning treatments, specialty waxing, and hair care packages. The sisters hope that special services for cancer patients, specials for anyone home from the military, and competitive prices for haircuts, perms, and beard trims will bring in new customers — by appointment or as walk-in clients. Future services will include nail treatments, pedicures, and a massage room.

 Untamed Salon is located at 2712 W. Central Avenue, and is open Tuesday thru Saturday 9am-6pm, with appointments available during off hours. 419-725-8404. www.untamedsalonllc.com.
