Valentine's Day is two weeks away and there will be a special drawing on that day for a free hair and a mini pedicure at Studio G Hair Salon of Lehigh, which is located at 3020 Lee Blvd. in the Town Plaza, a couple of doors from Lozano's Mexican Restaurant.
Studio G is under new ownership and management. Catherine Barnes of Lehigh has purchased the refurbished and redecorated hair salon and offers specialized services and make-overs for their clientele.
Barnes said her mother is also part owner of the salon but is not one of the women who work at the hair salon.
Standing from left to right are the hair stylists at Studio G. They are owner, Catherine Barnes, Tabitha Navarr, Debbie Grindell, and Kristina Lesher. Not shown is Jenna Ollie-Youngs.
Barnes said she purchased the salon earlier this month. She has been a stylist there for at least five years.
"We have a nice new fresh look here and we have made some changes structurally, moved some walls and have redone everything over. I think the women and the men, who come here for hair styling, cutting and other services will be pleased," she said.
Barnes is no stranger to hair care. She has been working as such for at least 12 years.
She and her staff treat their customers well because they are so specialized and training, Barns said. She wanted to remind those out there who may have been prior clients to come back and give them an opportunity to show you what they can do.
"All of the women working here are truly experts in what they do," she said.
"We are certified color specialists which is new and we can do anything the customer wants. Some of our hair stylists here have worked for some of the top salons in Fort Myers. So why drive all the way over there now? We do make-up, hair color and specialize in all types of hand care. No one here has less than 10 years of experience.
In addition to Barnes, the owner, others who are associates of her in the business include Tabitha Navarr, Jenna Ollie-Youngs, Debbie Grindell and Kristina Lesher.
Studio G is open Sunday and Monday by appointment only. Customers can call 239-368-7474 to make an appointment. Studio G is open on Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesdays, from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., and on Fridays from 9 to 6:30 p.m. On Saturday, the hair salon is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
"We have evenings by appointment. Just call us and we will set up times to suit our customers," she said.
Another great thing about the hair specialists at Studio G is that all of the women can speak Spanish and they have a Facebook account where you can find specials and other good deals.
"Go onto our Facebook and 'like us,' and you will find a lot of information there," Barnes said. "We list our specials there and here at the salon, we use the top products in the industry here, too, which is important for the proper care of hair."
"We are very good with doing makeups ... we use airbrush treatments and we also specialize in such things as wedding parties, bridal showers, high school proms, and other special occasions when you want your hair to be just right, the way you want it," she said.
"And we have a loyalty program - a referral program with good offers. I think the public who have not been here will be very happy with our top rated services," Barnes said.
