Shine Salon to move to Sunburst Plaza

UPDATED — There’s a new tenant coming to Phil Ruffin’s Sunburst Plaza at 1725 at 1725 E. Douglas, which may be better known as the home of Tanya’s Soup Kitchen.

Shine Salon is moving into 2,500 square feet next to the former Integrity Auto Group space at the center.

“We’ve kind of been looking to expand, to grow our business,” says Val Sigg, who owns the business with his wife, Casey. “Our business has been fantastic.”

The salon will celebrate five years at 110 N. Hillside on March 18.

Currently, Shine has six styling chairs and eight stylists.

“We’re trying to accommodate 14 hair stylists at our new space,” Sigg says. “We are actively looking for … hair stylists to come work with us over there.”

In addition to wanting to grow the salon, Sigg says he and his wife are drawn to the Sunburst area in particular.

“We’re excited about being close to Tanya’s … and what’s happening in the area with the Donut Whole and the Wichita Guitar Works across the street.”

Jon Cyphert of Jon Cyphert Commercial Real Estate and Nathan Farha of NAI Martens handled the Shine deal.

Sigg says he’s not sure how quickly the move will happen, but it likely will take a couple of months at a minimum.

“We’re going to try to make it happen as soon as we can,” he says. “We’re stoked.”
