SPRING HOPE – There’s a new hairdresser in town.
Elsa Salon, which had a soft opening in the fall, received its official welcome party from the Spring Hope Area Chamber of Commerce.
Mayor Kyle Pritchard, House members, friends and family, 2021-22 Miss Pumpkin Queen Rachel Perry and Little Miss Pumpkin Queen Avery Bissette and a host of well-wishers gathered on Saturday to officially welcome Garcia to town.
The show is one of many new businesses interested in Spring Hope, Pritchard said.
Garcia is not only a great stylist; she’s also a humanitarian, said Gay Sturgeon, who runs the Meal on Wheels program at Spring Hope.
Garcia volunteered to help deliver food to the elderly and people with disabilities, Sturgeon said.
Garcia has two sons who attend school at Bailey Elementary and Southern Nash Middle. Originally from Mexico, Garcia lived in Tarboro before moving to Spring Hope ten years ago.
Garcia earned her cosmetology license at Wake Technical Community College in 2018. She worked at a salon in Raleigh for two years before opening her own business in Spring Hope in September.
Elsa Salon, located at 106 E. Main St., offers hair services for men, women, and children as well as waxing and coloring.
