Cathy Roller, owner of Blackbird Salon, confirmed last week that she will be opening a second location in the under renovation building at 402 North 25th Street (just up from the East End Theater). She is aiming to open sometime between October and the end of the year.
Blackbird Salon has been open on Lombardy since 2010, and has grown from a one-woman shop to a stable of 6 stylists. The shop offers haircuts for men, women, and children, and a variety of other styling services.
The city lists the property at 402 North 25th Street as being built in 1940, with the last Certificate of Occupancy dating back to 1974 (for a church).
