People cut a lot of luxuries from their budgets during the recession, but one thing many women refused to do without was their trip to the salon.
It’s that kind of loyalty that led many business experts to refer to hair salons as nearly recession-proof. It’s also the kind of energy that allowed Salon Avanti in Stonecreek Village to expand late last summer.
“For a lot of the clients that come here, it’s not a luxury,” said Salon Avanti co-owner Vicki Kirk. “They need their hair done for work. They will go without food before they forgo their hair color.”
