Salon styles in Stratford

Inspire Salon is the newest business in Stratford.

Brianna Richardson, a Stratford native, opened the salon on November 5 in her hometown after five years of experience as a beauty operator at Studio 7 in Ames. She offers all haircuts, colors, and facial waxing for men, women and children at her new salon. It is located in a corner building on Shakespeare Avenue that was most recently home to the Swedish Museum.

In addition to support from Hamilton County S.E.E.D. and the Stratford Development Corporation, Richardson says she has appreciated the warm welcome she has received from Stratford friends and family.

Hours at Inspire Salon are Tuesdays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Wednesdays and Thursdays from noon to 8 p.m., and Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. through 3 p.m.
