A new hair salon at the courthouse combines beauty and community development


After operating a new hair salon in Courthouse for two months, the owner Carissa Lawlor says she’s ready to do more than just cut and color the hair.

Lawlor, who opened hÅŒm Living room at 2020 Wilson Blvd on May 19, aims to use its 1,500 square foot space to foster community and encourage wellness with courtyards and pop-up shops.

“The idea to open the salon was to enhance the salon experience, allow our guests to connect with our community, encourage staff to grow, monthly specialty classes, yoga classes , life coaching, ”Lawlor said. “Being yourself isn’t just beauty – it’s all encompassing … that’s why we’re here, really.”

HÅŒm’s first personal wellness class is scheduled for Friday, July 30 at 6:30 pm. For $ 25, stylists will teach attendees tips and tricks for curling and drying their hair as well as styling techniques.

From Saturday August 7, the show will host pop-up markets on the first Saturday of each month. Vendors will have kiosks inside and along the sidewalk. With hours from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the market is timed to align with the neighborhood farmer’s market.

For Lawlor, the promotion of well-being also has an ecological component. His salon recycles around 95% of its waste, including the foil and hair color packaging, which is converted to asphalt filler, car and bicycle parts and clean energy products.

“We have maybe two pounds of garbage a week, not even,” Lawlor said.

The show, which offers over 40 services, specializing in eyebrow styling and blonde coloring. Prices start at $ 51 for a haircut and $ 166 for the highlights. From 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays, the show offers eruptions for $ 25.

hÅŒm is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. from Wednesday to Friday and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
