WICHITA — After more than a decade working in downtown Wichita, stylist Susan Brady is opening a new salon at Normandie Center at Central and Woodlawn.
Sugar Salon will open in mid-November in 1,200 square feet, which is bigger than Brady’s current Salon Lush at Occidental Plaza and smaller than Urban Image, which she used to have at Old Town Square.
"I would rather keep it small and intimate," Brady says. "It makes for a cozier, more friendly environment."
The chief difference with the new salon, other than being on the east side, is that Brady is once again going to have an Aveda salon.
"We had decided when we opened Salon Lush we would not carry Aveda; we would see what else is out there to offer," Brady says.
She missed the quality of Aveda's products and color along with Aveda's education and "just their general support."
"I finally realized I just need to stay with Aveda," Brady says. "So when the opportunity presented itself to open ... another Aveda salon, I of course jumped at the chance."
