East End Main Street and the Charleston Area Alliance are joining Salon Indigo – which offers massages, pedicures, manicures and haircuts – to host a ribbon cutting at 5 p.m. Aug. 31.
Mayor Danny Jones is scheduled to attend the event, which will showcase the remodeled and renovated facility at 1587 Washington St. East.
“I have always envisioned having my own business and wanted a location that was both diverse and artsy,” said Salon Indigo owner Stephanie Reese. “I would drive up and down Washington Street looking for potential locations, and I chose this one because I love that it’s an old, historic home. It has charm.
“I designed the salon with a modern edge, but this house is more than 100 years old,” Reese continued. “I wanted to add spice with modern fixtures within a historic space.”
Salon Indigo is a “neighborhood business that offers the amenities of an urban city,” Reese said. It offers quality products and focuses on plant-based ingredients for hair and skin care.
Reese said the salon is perfect for lunch-hour visits.
“We live in a busy world, and it’s important for my customers to save time,” she said. “I want to offer specialized services for Capitol workers. That’s the convenience of running a business on the East End. We are fortunate to have so much in one neighborhood.”
Salon Indigo will provide wine and hors d’oeuvres for the ribbon cutting.
