Salon Merry-Go-Round

November 16, 2010 at 9:26 am 3 comments

Someone one once told me there are more than 75 salons on Aquidneck Island, and while I’m not going to pull out the ‘ol phone book and count ’em one by one, I’m inclined to believe it. Truth is, there’s a lot of great talent–stylists, colorists, nail technicians, estheticians–packed into this corner of the world, and in the past few weeks, there have been a number of relocations and new salons to open their doors. Here’s a round up:

RaNew Salon celebrates its Grand Opening today at 580 Thames Street in Newport in Wellington Square. The salon is led by a handful of staff formerly of Ki-Ra Salon (which remains open at 6 West Marlborough Street) including Rachael Prendergast, Christine Giacobbi, Bethany Kraft, Bethany Cano, Laura Philbrick, Alejandra Cornejo and Samantha Smaldone. 619-4848,

Spalon opened at 770 Aquidneck Avenue in Middletown in October and is owned by April Ducker and Donna Morrel. The full-service salon and spa provides hair coloring and styling, skin treatments, hair removal, nail treatments, Reiki treatments and more. 842-0100,

WaveLengths Salon & Spa is celebrating their relocation from memorial Boulevard to 181 Bellevue Avenue in Bellevue Shopping Center in Newport. 849-4427,

    I visited D’Ann Scott at WaveLengths for a hair cut the other week and the new location is beautiful!!! They did a great job of renovating that space–congrats!

      I wouldn’t expect anything less- happy to hear the new diggs are a hit with WaveLengths clients!
