Studio 11 Hair and Beauty has a new home in Riverside near 13th and Jeanette streets.
“We wanted to be able to expand,” says Jaime Pratt, who owns the business with Carla Sumner.
The two opened their salon in a small space next to R Coffeehouse – formerly Riverside Perk – in 2013 after leaving Planet Hair.
“We had just kind of left in a hurry,” Pratt says. “This was something we were able to plan a little more.”

The expanded space now allows room for an aesthetician, who will offer skin care such as facials.
Pratt says she and Sumner are looking for three more stylists to fill the expanded area as well.
They plan a grand opening for the new 1,300-square-foot space from 5 to 8 p.m. on April 24 during Final Friday. Pratt says it’s not an official Final Friday event, but she says she and Sumner have a number of artistic clients, so the evening works well.
