WEST AKRON — Great Clips is the second tenant to open at the new West Market Street Station retail development. The salon opened April 1.

Located at 46 N. Hawkins Ave., the salon will celebrate its grand opening at the site with $5.99 haircuts through April. Starting in May, the salon will charge its regular price of $14, while haircuts for children 10 and younger and seniors 65-plus will be $12. In addition, Great Clips offers styles, shampoos and perms.

According to franchise officials, the new Great Clips is the sixth to be owned and operated by The 220 Group Ltd., a locally owned company that also has salons in Hudson and Youngstown that are among the most highly recognized and awarded of Great Clips’ 4,000-plus salons. The salon is managed by Brandy Vaccarella, who transferred from the Hudson salon and is a multiple winner of Great Clips’ “Top Stylist” award.

As part of the company’s mission to be an important community contributor, it has established its Most Inspiring Teacher awards program in which students are encouraged to nominate a teacher who has inspired them to become a better student or person. The business makes a cash award to the school’s media center in recognition of those teachers.

Hours at the salon are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. The phone number is 330-794-7537.
