After 12 years of business near Bomgaars, ExperTease Style and Cuts has moved to a new location at 435 Lake Ave, formerly home to Medicap pharmacy.
Mindy Weiland, co-owner says a church near their old location decided to expand so the salon needed to find a new home and moved to their new location mid-December. However Weiland says they acquired a larger building and now they'll be able to grow their business as well. "It's triple the size I had," says Weiland. "We've never had this much room."
Weiland said the interior of the building needed quite a bit of work so everything was completely renovated. There are plans to work on renovation to the exterior in the spring, she says. With the move the salon gained new partner, Melissa Ortiz and Melinda Kimblad. Kimblad formerly worked with the ExperTease for the first few years it was open and then opened her business, East 5th Salon. However, after selling the salon she came back to ExperTease.
The salon will offer wig fittings and may offer pedicures and manicures in the future. A tanning salon may also be a possibility, Weiland says. Currently the salon offers services including: haircuts for all ages, waxing, coloring, men's haircuts and wedding/prom updos. Rench Deloss with Salon Deloss of ExperTease left the salon and moved to Colorado, however, Weiland says they will still be available to serve his clients.
