WICHITA — There soon will be a familiar face in the Elements Hair & Bodyshop space.

That salon recently announced that it’s closing. Now Benjamin Young is opening B. Young in the almost 3,000-square-foot Old Town space at 211 N. Washington

"Ben actually worked at Elements for about eight years," says Trace Wilson, who will manage the salon.

"A year and a half ago, he left Elements with another stylist, and we have been working out of Off the Top," Wilson says. "For the past year or so, we've been looking for our own space."

He says the Washington space makes sense for a number of reasons.

"Ben's clients were used to it for so many years," Wilson says.

"It's a unique space being a two-story salon with parking in an established area like Old Town," he says. "Sometimes you don't find all of those elements together. It worked out well."
