Greensburg board OKs Main Street salon signs

Jennifer and Jason Fetterman said they found the right spot on Main Street in Greensburg for their hair salon.

The husband and wife from Dilltown, Indiana County, hope to open layla marie at 205 S. Main St. in December.

This week, Greensburg's Historic and Architectural Review Board recommended that city council approve exterior signs for the business.

Council is expected to consider the improvements next month.

“I wanted to be in the downtown area because of the foot traffic and so it's easy to find,” Jennifer Fetterman said. “I wanted to come closer to here so I would be closer to family and friends.”

One sign involves scissors that will stick out a side of the building, the couple said.

Jennifer Fetterman said she worked in a salon in Shadyside for approximately six years before making the move to open the business with her husband.

In addition to the exterior changes, they are working to restore the inside of the building, the site of a former ballroom dancing business.

“It's gutted right now,” Jason Fetterman said of the interior.

Jennifer Fetterman, a graduate of Empire Cosmetology School in Monroeville, anticipated the salon will be open Tuesdays through Saturdays.

She will work with another stylist immediately and expects to hire two others soon.

She believes some of her customers from Allegheny County will follow her to Greensburg.

“It's close enough that they can easily travel here,” she said.

The city board also recommended that council:

• Approve facade changes for Comrades Barber Shop at 614 S. Main St.

• Endorse exterior improvements for Second Nature, a business that makes coffee tables and other items from recycled material, at 132 S. Pennsylvania Avenue.

• Approve a tenant directory sign in the parking lot at 450 S. Main St.
