Selma resident opens hair boutique
Lyn Charmel always envisioned owning a hair boutique in her hometown.
Charmel’s dream came true on the Fourth of July holiday with the grand opening of Ooh La Lyns Hair Extension boutique.
“I’ve always had a passion to own my hair shop since I was a young girl,” Charmel said. “Grand opening was a success. Thanks so much to my support team and my customers.”
Hours of operation will be Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
A 2015 graduate of Selma High School, Charmel perfectly designed the salon.
The walls are pink colored, with tan sofa and tan chair are surrounded by fluffy white and pink pillows. Assorted hair extensions, ranging in colors from black to blonde, hang on the wall. Prices range from $55 to $350 and can be made by either cash or credit. An appointment board on another wall is already full on opening day.
Charmel, who received a Cosmetology degree at Wallace Community College-Selma four years ago, said she’s looking forward to running the boutique.
“It gives me a chance to connect with different women and make them feel different,” Charmel said.
Charmel, 23, said the COVID-19 pandemic didn’t affect her plans.
“I believe the coronavirus has been a blessing and I made it into a positive,” Charmel said. “God comes in different forms.”
