Craig women opening new salon Friday

— The new Icon Salon opens its doors Friday, offering haircuts, color and perm treatments, nail services, waxing and massage chairs.

Track lighting and black-and-white pictures of iconic superstars define the remodeled space at 458 Yampa Ave. in Craig. The salon is also offering a complimentary beer or glass of wine for customers.

Stylists Linda Becker, also known as “Michigan,” and Alesha Forbes teamed up to open the salon, which they say offers a different take on the salon experience in Craig.

“Ultimately we want people to enjoy their service while they’re here and feel like it is just about them,” Becker said. “We want to give them our undivided attention and make people feel more confident about themselves.”

The duo is offering women’s haircuts with shampoo and style for $23 and men’s cuts for $17.

Icon Salon will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays, as well as by appointment.

Forbes said the salon’s goal is to fit the needs of Craig and to build a loyal clientele.

Although the women said it’s been hard work so far, they’re excited to officially open their doors.
