PERU - There's a new salon in town.
Brush It Up is a new business with two familiar faces. Kim Mason opened her salon Feb. 1, bringing her 23 years of experience in hair styling and the 24 years experience of stylist Kimberly Reyell to the business.
"It's been my lifelong dream to have my own salon and it's finally achieved," said Mason, who has worked with Reyell for the past 14 years.
Brush It Up offers the full gamut of modern hair styling services - including perms, up-dos and highlights - in a clean and friendly atmosphere.
Though only open for nearly a month, Brush It Up already draws a clientele from not only Peru, but the Ausable and Ellenburg areas as well.
"We're right on the main road to Plattsburgh and we offer convenient parking," Mason said of Brush It Up's draw to customers. "We really reach out to a lot of areas."
The salon also carries a full line of hair styling products, including Redken and Paul Mitchell brands, which Mason keeps well-stocked. Complimentary coffee also awaits customers in the salon's waiting area.
Brush It Up will hold a grand opening this spring, with drawings for free services. Eventually, Mason said she would like the salon to offer skin care services with an esthetician and Reiki therapy services.
Brush It Up is located at 3384 Main St., Unit 7, in Glenwood Plaza, off State Route 22. The salon is open 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, Thursday and Friday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday. Appointments are also available to accommodate customer needs.
Brush It Up may be reached at 643-2233.
