A Toni & Guy-affiliated hair salon is one of Birch Bay Square’s newest openings.
Colleen Lund along with her parents, John and Brenda Lund, of Mount Vernon, will open Boulevard Hair Studio at Birch Bay Square on Tuesday, July 7.
Although locally owned and operated, the salon is a Tigi boutique, said stylist Melissa Johnson, which means it is affiliated with the Toni & Guy company and features the line of Tigi products.
Johnson added that because of the location of a new Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy in Bellingham, they will easily be able to recruit new talent.
The salon will offer six stations, full service cuts and colors as well as laser treatments, facials and waxing.
The Lund family opened their first salon in downtown Mount Vernon four years ago. Since then, they have moved their operations to a new development in Burlington near the George Hopper Road I-5 exit. John has extensive experience as a banker and Brenda has more than 30 years in the hair cutting business.
Colleen said they decided to expand their operations north when Birch Bay Square developer Levi Ware approached them looking for a Tigi affiliate salon to complement the mall’s Nail Masters salon, which opened in May.
“It was a good fit,” Lund said.
The 1,500-square foot space is painted with bright, rich oranges, blues and greens that Johnson said contributes to an energetic and fun atmosphere.
“A lot of salons are going for mute colors for a sort-of spa feel,” she said. “We wanted to do something different. We want to be upbeat and fun.”
Boulevard Hair Studio is located at 3400 Birch Bay-Lynden Road and can be reached by calling 360/366-2583.
