Richmond Heights marks the latest franchise in the company’s growth initiatives

St. Louis, Mo., February 7, 2018 – Hair Saloon has announced the opening of its newest location in Richmond Heights, MO, planned for March, 2018. The announcement follows a series of growth initiatives for the company, which celebrated its 20th year in business in 2017 with two new stores in St. Louis, and expansion to the Louisville, Kentucky, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania markets. The Richmond Heights store is the 16th Hair Saloon location in St. Louis.
Kristen and Mike Swearngin are Hair Saloon’s newest franchisees, but are not new to Hair Saloon. Mike is employed with Pace Properties and has worked with Hair Saloon for many years, finding sites for both corporate and franchise locations. As such, Kristen and Mike understand the market well, and believe Richmond Heights is an ideal location for a Hair Saloon.
“With many Hair Saloons located in suburban areas, we are excited for the opportunity to open one closer to the core of the St. Louis region,” said Mike Swearngin. “We’ve always admired Hair Saloon’s model and values, and we are looking forward to operating a location of our own.”
Along with this new location planned for Richmond Heights, Hair Saloon also recently opened locations at Big Bend and Dougherty Ferry, in St. Peters on Mid Rivers Mall Drive, and reopened their flagship store on Manchester Road last fall.
“The Hair Saloon team is excited to partner with Kristen and Mike in opening a new franchise in Richmond Heights.” said Thomas Twellman, Sr., Hair Saloon Founder and CEO. “They have been wonderful to work with before, and we look forward to our future with them as franchise partners. Our goal has always been to deliver trademark customer service and a comfortable, wholesome atmosphere for men to receive a premium experience at a quality price. We have no doubt the Swearngins will uphold those core values in the newest franchise in Richmond Heights.”
The Richmond Heights Hair Saloon, as well as new stores in Louisville and Pittsburgh, is expected to open later this year.
