LEETONIA - Self-owned and open six days a week, Holly's Shear Heaven Beauty Salon opened at 354 Columbia Street on Sept. 5.
Owner Holly Cannon, a 2001 graduate of Leetonia High School, said, "I've been doing this for 12 years and it was time to do it myself." Cannon also graduated from the Columbiana County Career Center in 2001 where she learned cosmetology.
She has been employed at Smart Style in Walmart for seven years and before that worked for Express Cuts in Boardman before it shut down.
"This is a pretty competitive business," she said, "it definitely is" noting there are two or three other beauty shops in Leetonia.
"My pricing it pretty comparable to Smart Style," she said.
"I like color a lot and started doing it last year ... and micro loop extensions ... it's a little bead-type thing that clamps onto the hair. It's non-damaging."
Holly's Shear Heaven uses the PIGI and Redken color product lines.
The salon just passed a state of Ohio inspection on Thursday that noted it was "clean and well organized."
Customers can us the rear parking lot at the back entrance or park on Columbia Street.
