In a month or so, the Plaza Salon is moving from its first floor location next to the River Street Athletic Center to the second floor of the River Street Plaza. The new space is accessible by elevator and is much bigger. The stylists will include Salon owner Amber Grace, stylist Melissa Kuzmiak and renowned stylist Michelle Levitsky, owner of Absolute Hair.
After spending nearly nine years on Main Street, Levitsky said she is enthusiastic about joining the Plaza Salon.
"We are all looking forward to working together," Levitsky said.
Absolute Hair has recently employed two other stylists, Gigi Edmunds-Perry, and Sarah Morgan. Gigi moved on to work with her mother in January, and Morgan, sister of Michelle Levitsky, is currently working at Cabello Salon in Saratoga and plans to join The Plaza Salon part time. At the Plaza Salon, all of the stylists will be working independently.
As a group, they feel that continuing education is key to offering the best services at affordable prices, Levitsky said. In several weeks, the Plaza Salon stylists will be attending the International Beauty Show in New York City, and they are making plans for monthly in-salon education sessions.
The salon will offer manicures and European-style pedicures as well using natural vegan products that are formaldehyde free. Beginning April 1, the new salon space will be open Monday through Saturday by appointment. Call 623-2531 for more information.
Amber Grace and Mark Grace are now in the process of designing and constructing the new salon.
Mark Grace's River Street Plaza offers a fully renovated historic property complete with glimpses into the town's past, ample parking, easy elevator access, and the convenience of access to a variety of businesses in one location.
See an upcoming issue of the Adirondack Journal for details regarding the salon's Grand Opening open house.
We hear Lizzy Keays, the incomparable restaurant at River Street Plaza, will be catering the event.
