Jekyll & Hyde Hair Salon Moving into Former Wholly Craft Space
Jekyll & Hyde Hair Salon is moving from its current store at 16 W. Pacemont Road to 3169 N. High Street — just around the corner.
Though the move isn’t far, the salon is making a big leap in terms of visibility and square footage. In addition to a covetable High Street storefront (formerly home to Wholly Craft), Jekyll & Hyde is getting four times more space, allowing Owner Angie Hatzifotinos to hire five stylists for a total of eight.
A bigger store also provides room for additional services. Right now, the salon offers a variety of hair care services, as well as brow and lip waxing; within a year, customizable spa facials and gel manicures and pedicures will also be on the menu.
The decision to keep Jekyll & Hyde in Clintonville —where it opened in June 2012— was easy.
“Plain and simply, that is where we belong,” Hatzifotinos said, adding that she and the majority of her team live, work and play in the neighborhood. Plus, it’s convenient even for clients outside Clintonville.
“No matter where you are within the 270 outerbelt, you can get here in 15 to 20 minutes max,” she added.
Jekyll & Hyde is slated to reopen on Wednesday, October 1st. In the meantime, the High Street location is under renovation.
Its 12-foot tin tile ceiling will remain intact, but the 92-year-old wood floors have been refinished, the walls have been repainted, and a sink area with a tile backsplash has been added. Eventually, the lower level space will be a “rejuvenating, calm spa setting” for the salon’s nail and esthetics services, Hatzifotinos said.
Currently, Jekyll & Hyde is the only Davines concept salon in Columbus, meaning all its stylists use the Italian brand, whose hair color and Essentials line is made with natural enzymes, proteins, ph factors and pigments from plants. In a neat twist of fate, EcoFlora will be relocating to Jekyll & Hyde’s Pacemont space.
Instead of hanging a “for rent” sign, Hatzifotinos let friends and clients spread the word about the store’s availability. EcoFlora Owner Eva Provenzale got wind of it and stopped in to see the place for herself.
“When Eva walked in the door on that Saturday afternoon inquiring about the space, I was ecstatic,” Hatzifotinos said. The stylist was more than familiar with the shop, having built a terrarium with air plants and succulents there.
“My boutique plant science salon with a boutique organic florist next door— sounds like a win win to me,” she added.
