Two longtime Chelmsford hairstylists have taken their flair for hair a few dozen feet over the Lowell border with their own business.
After nearly eight years at Shampoo Hair and Day Spa, Lypor Leong and Christina Truscello have built a new home at TEAL Beauty and Makeup Studio, a new hair and fashion salon on Stedman Street.
From its initial opening in late September to the studio’s grand opening this week, the pair has found that many of their customers have migrated with them to Lowell, as Leong has also seen former clients from the Acton area travel to the new location as well.
“We became good friends and eventually wanted to do our own thing and do more to help people feel better about themselves,” said Truscello, a Tewksbury resident.
In addition to hair and nail services, the partners have also found a niche with services such as hair extensions, bridal hair customization and beauty styling for cancer patients; all of which have brought clients from other portions of the state and elsewhere in the country.
While the two have said things have been running smoothly so far, they hope to grow their business in the future, looking to capitalize on amenities such as shampoo massage chairs, Christmas presents for regular clients and free wifi for people looking to get some work done and their hair done at the same time.
“We want to give our clients more, to give them an experience,” said Leong. “We want to take the time and be creative, it’s all about the pampering.”
More information on the salon is available on its Facebook page.
