Tresses hair salon officially opened another wing last week, nearly tripling its size.
The salon’s owners, who have called 205 W. 10th St. home for five years, said they’ve simply expanded the concept that’s made Tresses known as a reliable downtown salon.
They will add five more stylists and 1,000 feet of room.
Owners Jean and Andrew Verdoes took over the then-neighboring Women’s Center’s lease in August and immediately began construction. The couple brought what they learned from renovating old homes, a longtime hobby, and put it to work in their salon.
They laid tile, built cabinets and counters and custom-made mosaic mirrors. The Verdoes said they completed most of the remodeling themselves to save money, and to give the salon a personal touch.
“We want that warm feeling in here,” Jean Verdoes said. “We have a good group of stylists who will help bring an eclectic and down-to-earth feel to the salon.”
The salon offers pedicures, manicures, hair coloring and cuts for men, women and children.
“We can provide customers everything from a trendy haircut to a traditional shampoo set,” Verdoes said.
She said Tresses and a few other hair salons in downtown Tracy have created an area known for upscale services. She said she’s proud that her salon is included among the reliable downtown salons.
Stylist Lauren Woodward said she and her customers enjoy Tresses’ laid back atmosphere.
“The expansion only adds to that. It’s much better for our customers.”
Manager Debra Rios plans to hire five more experienced stylists within the next few months, bringing the salon’s total number of stylists to 12.
Customers are encouraged to bring a toy or a nonperishable food item in an effort to fill the salon’s Brighter Christmas donation barrel.
