Owner/Operator Shelley Jankowski opened Allure Salon last Tuesday at 148 Central Park Square.
“I’ve actually owned a hair salon for several years. I operated Studio 42 in my home for 6.5 years before moving to a space at 464 Central Ave., for another two years,” Jankowski said during an interview Friday at her new studio.

Her daughter-in-law Kim Chase assists Jankowski in the business, which has grown from two stylists to five, and they are all moms.

“I wanted to do this to provide flexible jobs for working moms because family is the most important to us,” Jankowski said. “I’ve loved hair since I was 2 years old, according to my mom,” she said. “I’m also in ministry and attend the New Mexico School of Ministry and I like listening and helping people work through their problems. All of us really love people and love making women feel beautiful.”

The salon, which is in the space recently vacated by Hair Experts, does more hair coloring and corrective color than anything else, Jankowski said. But they also do family haircuts, facial waxing and manicures and pedicures. They do not do acrylic nails or body waxing. 

Allure Salon is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Friday and by appointment Saturday. For information or to make an appointment, call the salon at 505.662.4247.
