A new salon at 4418 Lewis St. in Middletown is now open and looking to add to its ranks.

Located behind the First Financial Bank and the Breiel Boulevard McDonald’s, Leading Image Hair Salon is hiring at least three, experienced full-time hair stylists, or more than that if the positions end up part-time, according to owner Susie Newman.

The salon offers hair-cutting, texture waves, all color services, straightening, smoothing and conditioning treatments, Newman said.

A grand opening is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug. 22.

Newman, who has been a cosmetologist for 30 years, earned a bachelor of integrative studies degree from Miami University in 2013. She currently employs one stylist — Dottie Lanier.

“Dottie and I have worked together more than 25 years in the Middletown area,” Newman said. “We were both former stylists at McAlpin’s and Looks Ahead Hair and Nail salons.”

Newman said the salon and its location are perfect for what she was looking for in a business.

“I just thought it would be a good location to relocate business,” she said. “Everything’s worked out smoothly so far and whatever I can do to make it successful, I plan to do.”

For walk-ins and appointments, or to apply for a position at the salon, call 513-915-7302.
