LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – A new hair salon has opened in the Tippecanoe shopping center. The owner hopes to help you create a whole new you.
“It’s something I’ve wanted to do for almost my entire hairdressing career. It was just about finding the right place for me and finding the right time,” owner Colin Teckenbrock said.
Teckenbrock, 21, has always had a passion for hair. He took his passion to the next level by opening a salon called Fox Hair Studio.
“I feel like with the craziness of the world lately and everything that’s been going on in life in general, I feel like I have an all-inclusive welcoming space where everyone feels comfortable was really important for me to create,” Teckenbrock said.
The name of the salon, Fox Hair Studio, is a play on Colin’s drag name, Veronica Fox and her drag spot The Fox’s Den. Colin said he learned to do his hair at a young age and has been gratified by it ever since.
“It’s therapeutic for me because I help other people feel good about themselves and it’s kind of like my artistic outlet doing it full time,” Teckenbrock said. “It’s pretty cool to say that I’m a full-time artist in a way and able to create that space for other stylists who are doing the same thing.”
