With a new year comes a new look in a new building for the women of Capo Salon.

Capo is moving from its current location to 518 Yampa Ave. Business owner Megan Jones officially purchased the 2,500-square-foot site from Blake and Charlene Abdella on Friday, re-opening for customers Monday.

Jones established Capo Salon in October 2013, and the success of the beauty shop quickly got her thinking that the next sensible move was to go bigger. She first began considering a month ago moving into the building that had previously housed the Abdellas’ Pro Image Photography, among other businesses.

Besides offering work on hair, the larger space will allow Jones and her associates the chance to do the full range of cosmetic deals, including nails, waxing, makeup, skin treatments and teeth-whitening.

“It’s going to be like a whole spa feeling here,” Jones said. “We want to open it up to big wedding parties for hair and makeup and things like that.”

Jones’ former neighbor, April Valencia, will also be moving her dog spa business to the locale, and Jones hopes to add massage therapy to the list of services, as well.

Angela Dial-Doane also will join Jones, as will Candice Mathers Haack, as her first job out of cosmetology school.

“People are going to love this,” Mathers Haack said.

With a greater amount of floor space and multiple rooms, the new building was exactly what Jones was looking for after deciding she wanted to own the place where she set up shop instead of just leasing.

“You’ve got to follow your dreams,” she said.
