After 10 years working as stylist, Lindsay Jones decided it was time to break out on her own, and there was no better partner for her on the venture than her boyfriend and stylist of 12 years, Roberto Cantu. The pair recently opened Salon 1131 in Old Town
“I worked at the same salon for those 10 years,” says Jones. “But I always wanted to be somewhere more trendy.”
The 1,800 square foot salon is located next door to Redhead Design Studio
's new location on North Washington. According to Jones, the location was right because of its size, and ample parking.
“Old Town was very appealing to us,” says Jones. “We really liked the exposed brick, and the structure really suited what we needed.”
Salon 1131 opened in early September and will celebrate its grand opening on October 6 during the Old Town Commercial Association’s Oktoberfest event. The salon currently employs four stylists. Jones expects to have a total of six stylists when the salon is at full capacity.
