Hair & Shampoo Center to close

WICHITA — The more than 20-year-old Hair & Shampoo Center near the southeast corner of 21st and Maize is closing.

“It’s a shame,” says employee Lisa Moody. “We’re a big, busy shop, and we’ve got tons of clients.”

Moody says salon owner Randy King had a stroke earlier this year.

“We have been running the shop …in the meantime,” she says of herself and some other employees.

Moody says a few of those employees looked at buying the business and continuing it.

“It’s just not going to work out,” she says.

There are usually about a dozen stylists working in the shop, and there’s a separate area for children, which Moody says has helped make it a popular salon.

She says the last day of business is Aug. 13.

“It’s all coming to a close.”
