Ramona’s oldest beauty shop is on the move

By Jessica King

Ramona’s oldest beauty shop is on the move after occupying the same space for nearly 30 years.

Ramona Beauty Supply & Salon owner Teresa Hanvey said she has sold her 1,800-square-foot space at the southeast corner of Main and Sixth streets to next-door merchant Orrin Day, who owns Ramona Mainstage.

On July 1, Hanvey plans to close her doors at 620 Main St. for good and reopen at 636 Main on the east side of Ramona Café and Bake Shop.

“I knew I wanted to stay on this end of town — I like the history of it,” said Hanvey of her choice to choose location over size.

The new space measures 1,000 feet, nearly half of the shop’s current size.

Despite the new cozy quarters, Ramona Beauty Supply & Salon will continue to offer all of its current service

with one exception, said Hanvey. Tanning beds will not fit in the new space, which formerly housed a floral shop.

The new space boasts front and rear parking, and will offer full hair and nail services, plus retail space.

Hanvey isn’t concerned about losing clientele in the move because most have been coming in for years.

“Oh no, not at all would I go somewhere else. These guys are awesome,” said Ramona Beauty Supply & Salon customer Nancy Lund, a loyal patron since the mid-1990s.

As for the shop’s old space, Hanvey said Day plans to open a steakhouse in the fall and she’s excited to try out a new locally owned restaurant.

“This is a good thing,” she said. “It’ll be a good thing for everyone.”
