After 30 years of owning Family Hair Flair in Tescott, owner Rhonda Base and the rest of the Family Hair Flair team are hosting a celebration.
“It’s been very rewarding,” Base said about the 30th anniversary. “I feel very fortunate.”
“I think it’s great for a small town business,” said Brenda White, USD 298 District Technology Coordinator and Lincoln resident. White, whose stylist is Cortney Sherman, has been going to the Family Hair Flair 2 salon in Lincoln since 2015.
The event is set for May 26, starting at 3 p.m. at the Family Hair Flair salon in Tescott, which is located at 110 N. Main St.
Base said she is looking forward to “being able to see a lot of people and … do something nice for them” at the celebration.
“I think it’ll be a good time,” said Rosanna Nelson, a cosmetologist at both Family Hair Flair salons.
Base acquired the Tescott shop after working for a salon in Minneapolis, she said. She renamed the shop Family Hair Flair when she became the owner.
“I wanted people to be comfortable with bringing their families,” she said. “It’s family oriented.”
Three years ago, April 1, 2015, Base opened another salon in Lincoln: Family Hair Flair 2.
“It’s friendly and relaxing,” White said about the salon. “I like the services they offer, and I like not having to drive somewhere. I can stay in town.”
In addition to Base owning the Tescott salon for 30 years, Base has been a hair stylist for 42 years, she said.
Nelson said she has been working at the salons for about seven and a half years with Base. Nelson said, of her boss, that she is welcoming and “forgiving.”
“She’s always just been there,” Nelson said.
In addition to being a friendly, kind person, Nelson said she is “peppy,” and exudes “energy.”
“She always introduces everybody, you know when they come in the door,” she said. “She just makes it fun … she’s just a really special lady.”
