Salon finds another space

A beauty salon that was rebuffed in an attempt to gain space on Irving Street has found a new home on St. Georges Avenue. Heavenly Hair Styles plans a grand opening this month at its new location near West Grand/Westfield avenues.

The Redevelopment Agency last month failed to approve a zoning overlay, by a 3-3-1 vote, that would have exempted the salon from a city ordinance that prohibits personal service businesses within 1,000 feet of each other.

Commissioners are expected to memorialize a resolution on the overlay at their next meeting (Nov. 12), according to Cynthia Solomon, director of community development and secretary to the agency.
