Studio 9 Salon LLC was incorporated in 2004. The original store was comprised of 1,200 square feet. It supported 8 hair styling stations and two nail stations.
By late 2004 customer demand surpassed the size of the store. The facility size was doubled to a configuration of 2,400 square feet. This facility supported 14 styling stations, 5 nail stations, 2 pedicure stations and a facial room.
In January 2010 we built a state of the art new free standing building. It is located just 300 feet South of our original store. Our new salon has many design features that have a direct effect on our clients. Features include a engineered lighting system that supplies a 5500K light color. This mimics the same color that natural daylight provides. This will assure you that you hair color will look stunning in all types of lighting. We have a engineered point of use ventilation system at our nail tables. Our downdraft system expels harmful chemical agents out through the roof of the building. This provides our employees and customers a safe environment from chemical exposures. It has completely eliminated the chemical smell associated with some nail and hair salons.

Clients indicate that a trait of the salons success is providing a friendly atmosphere and attention to detail. Approximately 55% of our new business is obtained from customer referrals.
