Salon-goers at Nancy Beauty Salon in Washington, D.C., take their photos on Wednesday.
(Andrew Harrer/Bloomberg) Salon-seekers at Nancy Salon in DC, which has been open for a decade, said they prefer the Nancy Beauty Shop to the salon-restaurant-type establishments.
“It’s a really nice salon, I’ve been there a few times, and it’s a lot of fun,” said Barbara Fitch, who was waiting for her turn to check out the beauty box salon when the announcement was made.
“We like to do things in our own style and be our own people.”
“It doesn’t matter where you are, it doesn’t make a difference if you’re from Brooklyn or anywhere else,” said Kristin Smith, a salon-goer in Chicago who said she was a huge fan of the salon.
Salon-owner Nancy Beauty was one of a number of business owners who said that their customers will benefit from a “local, national brand” that is not tied to a particular city.
“This is going to be an awesome place to work,” said Michael O’Connell, who runs the business out of his home in Virginia.
“I’m not saying it’s going to bring me back to the area but it will be something I want to do.
I’m excited to come back and see how it goes.”
The New York Times reported earlier this month that the New York Beauty Box and the Nancy Salon will have their first stores in early 2018.
The Nancy Salon has also announced that it will open its first store in Austin, Texas in 2019.
Nancy Beauty Salon has not announced whether it will close the current location.
