It seems only appropriate the oldest house in Hettinger will be the home of its newest business.

Michele Meier opened New Beginnings, a salon, on Oct. 15. Michele, who moved to Hettinger in March, has been a cosmotologist for more than x years. She loves being a part of the community, and enlisted its aid when it came to the naming her new business.

“I just thought this would be a fun way to involve everyone,” she said of the contest. She received 57 suggestions, with New Beginnings being the winner, submitted by Alvin xxx.

“He said it made sense, a new beginning for the house, for me, for the business and most importantly for the customer,” said Michele. The house has been refurbished to it’s original woodwork where possible, as Michele stripped layers and layers of paint from the wall and doorways.

One of the things she found most interesting was a framed list of everyone who has ever lived in the house since it was built.

“I think it’s accurate, but I’m going to go check and make sure, and have it hanging in the downstairs,” she said.

Along with all hair procedures – cuts, perms, color, highlights, wash and sets and updos for special occasions such as proms and weddings, Michele will also be selling products to keep hair in good shape and looking good.

After a hair cut, one can relax in her heated, vibrating pedicure chair and have a manicure as well. Facials, body waxing, wraps and Michele hopes to have a massuse in the future.

The shop will be open Tuesday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with late appointments available Tuesday, Thursday and on Saturdays. It is located at 800 Adams Avenue in Hettinger, and appointments may be made by calling 567-HAIR (4247.)
