WICHITA — Don Piros of Landmark Commercial Real Estate has been busy doing a lot of leases lately, including a couple that will help beautify Wichita.
He and Andrea Cavgalar of Prudential Dinning-Beard Realtors handled a deal to bring Twice As Nice Barbershop to the 21st and Woodlawn area by MobileComm.
Owner Jeremie McGlory will open in early June with eight barbers, but he's looking for some stylists, too.
"The goal for me is to try to get to where we can have a whole family come in," he says.
McGlory has been cutting hair for a while and just graduated from the Old Town Barber College this spring.
On the west side of town, Denelle Farber is moving her First Class Hair from Reflection Ridge Plaza at 21st and Ridge where the salon has been for 11 years to Lakeridge Business Park across the intersection at 2260 N. Ridge Road.
"It's kind of bittersweet, but things change," Farber says.
The new space, which will be ready at the end of June or beginning of July, is 1,200 square feet compared with the salon's 3,200 square feet.
"We really expanded our salon, but . . . times change and hairdressers get older, too, you know," Farber says. "This will be a great space for us also."
Piros handled this deal as well.
"We've got a very good clientele," Farber says, "and I think most of them are going to be moving with us, which we are very happy about."
Not all the stylists are coming, though.
There will be six stylists and two massage therapists at the new space, which compares to eight stylists, two massage therapists and a nail technician at the current space.
Although the salon is downsizing, Farber says, "Things are really busy right now."
