For the past few weeks this blog has focused a lot on new businesses popping up in the Gaslight District, some of which are slightly off the beaten path – and that also describes the new Makin Heads Turn Salon. Its address is 3307 Clifton Avenue, but if you’re walking down Clifton you won’t see see it, because it’s behind University Nails. Basically, then, it’s across the street from Bruegger’s Bagels if you’re facing toward Good Samaritan Hospital; technically it’s on the corner of Terrace Avenue and Clifton. (I should note that it’s a few doors down from Mediterranean King, who I raved about in this blog entry.)
Part of the salon’s appeal, then, is its extremely convenient location. Employees at Good Samaritan could walk over during their lunch hour or after work, and so could residents of the Gaslight District (and UC students, who receive student discounts). The owner of Makin Heads Turn, Saira Huckleberry, cut hair for many years at Head First Salon on Ludlow Avenue, so she’s a veteran who decided it was time to launch her own business. I recommend checking out the salon’s Facebook page, where Saira posts some of the cool haircuts that she’s given. So much of the reason that the Gaslight District is a great neighborhood is due to the fact that it has so many small businesses, and we’re happy to have this new addition. To make an appointment for a haircut, styling, coloring, hair treatment, re-texturizing, or waxing, call Saira at 513.407.3911.
