Hair Saloon News

Richmond Heights is the 16th St. Louis Area Location for the Fast-Growing Franchise

St. Louis, Mo., April 10, 2018 – Hair Saloon is set to open its 16th store in the St. Louis market at 6674 Clayton Road in Richmond Heights on April 11. This is the fourth new location to open in the market in the last 18 months, and follows franchise announcements in Louisville, Kentucky and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where multiple Hair Saloons are expected to open in the next several months.
The grand opening will include complementary haircuts, offered April 11 – 14, by appointment only. Guests can make an appointment by calling 314-644-1111, on, or through the Hair Saloon app.
The Richmond Heights Hair Saloon is owned by franchisees Kristen and Mike Swearngin, who chose the location as the ideal neighborhood with close proximity to both the city and eastern portions of the county. They were drawn to the franchise because of the company’s business model and core values.
“We look forward to being the newest representatives of the Hair Saloon brand,” said Mike Swearngin. “We’re confident that our location in Richmond Heights will serve the community well, and provide men with the type of service and environment not found elsewhere.”
One of the hallmarks of the Hair Saloon values system revolves around service to the community, in which franchise owners support area non-profits and local organizations. This will be present in the Richmond Heights store, where the Swearngins plan to partner with non-profits on special events and initiatives.
16 Hair Saloons can be found across the St. Louis region, with locations in O’Fallon, Missouri, St. Peters, Chesterfield, Wildwood, Creve Coeur, Ballwin, Kirkwood, Webster Groves, Edwardsville and Fairview Heights. The company continues to seek additional franchisees to serve not only other areas of St. Louis, but also to expand the brand in markets across the United States.
“Over the last couple of years, Hair Saloon has focused on providing more locations in St. Louis and beyond, offering greater accessibility to our trademark services and values-based experience for men and junior men,” said Thomas Twellman, Sr., Hair Saloon Founder and CEO. “The opening of the Richmond Heights location pushes this effort into a new area here locally, with the Sweargins leading the effort to make Hair Saloon a member of the community, and create a place where men can feel comfortable.”
New Hair Saloon stores in Louisville and Pittsburgh are expected to open later this year.
