Fashion FYI: New men's salon; custom tablewear at Pittsburgh Glass Center
For the guys
An 18|8 Fine Men's Salon is open at 8011C McKnight Road in The Block Northway, Ross. It offers more than just a haircut. Services include facial treatments, gray blending, scalp treatments, straight shaves, waxing and nail treatments. The 1,500-square-foot salon is one of 100 franchises and is a modern barbershop comprised of several semi-private grooming stations and a private room for consultations and waxing services. Owners Walt and Cathy Kozlowski hope to open two more locations to Pennsylvania over the next four years.
“We were immediately attracted to the 18|8 business model as we felt the unique concept caters to an underserved marketplace,” Walt Kozlowski says. “We have lived in the Pittsburgh area for our entire lives and believe that the bustling and economically promising community is the perfect spot to introduce the brand to Pennsylvania. We are thrilled to be providing the community with this second-to-none salon experience.”
