BERLIN — Another local business has grown from a small, simple hair salon to a full-service spa with its recent expansion.
Envy Hair Salon & Spa opened in 2008 as a four chair business in Newington Market Square. Owner Nichole Vega has now moved to a brand new spot on Berlin’s toll highway.
The 1,800 square foot space at 220 Berlin Turnpike allowed the company to increase its seating count and leave room for tenants and the addition of spa services.
“Our goal here at Envy is to create extraordinary hair without the extraordinary attitude you find in so many other high-end salons,” the salon said. “You’ll enjoy a peaceful, relaxed environment where we take pride in the hair we create with our expert cutting and coloring techniques. Your hair should look exceptional every day, not just when you leave the salon.”
Although 2020 brought many challenges with the onset of the pandemic, the show still persevered.
“When reopening after a two-month shutdown, it was time to step up a gear and keep moving forward. Vega bought out the adjoining space and construction was underway to create the beautifully expanded space you see today,” the show said. “A spacious floor plan was designed by the team to support the addition of three spa rooms and triple the number of stylist chairs.”
The City of Berlin and Sylvana Gonzalez, the reigning Miss Connecticut, helped Envy Hair Salon & Spa celebrate the grand opening of the now 4,400 square foot space with a ribbon cutting on June 4.
Vega is a resident of Newington. She received her cosmetology license from the New England School of Hairdressing and was a manager and hairstylist at Regis Salon at Westfarms Shopping Center. The name “Envy” Hair Salon comes from Vega’s initials, which are “NV”.
Envy Hair Salon & Spa is open Monday from noon to 6 p.m.; Tuesday 10am-7pm; Wednesday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday 9am-5pm; and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
