The Natchitoches Area Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting July 24 to welcome a new business to Natchitoches: the Hair Bar. Owner Lesha Waskom Etheridge welcomed the crowd of people as they toured the space. The building had to be completely remodeled to create a streamlined salon where clients can come to relax for all their hair needs.
“This dream was very fast and furious,” said Lesha, who decided to open her own salon after Salon Rouge announced it was closing. Lesha introduced her team of licensed “hairtenders,” some who came with her from Salon Rouge and some who are new.
“We’re here to shake things up in Natchitoches,” she said, referring to her salon’s modern style. The Hair Bar is located at 234 Keyser Avenue, Suite C, which used to be the Sylvan Learning Center.
