It is open Tuesday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Fridays, 10 a.m. to\u00a04 p.m., and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. <em>Photo courtesy of David Moore<\/em>[\/caption]\r\n\r\nCailey Moore\r\nStaff Writer\r\n\r\nIt is a time of growth as the arrival of Spring quickly approaches, and Marlinton's Main Street is seeing a number of businesses springing up. Work on the interior of Tudor's Biscuit World is in progress, a new restaurant is in the works in what is known as \u201cThe Old Western Auto,\u201d while\u00a0beside the Dirt Bean Gallery, Renee Kelley's Mane Street Salon is in its first year of \u00a0business.\r\n\r\nThe family salon \u2013 with its natural light and warm burgundy walls \u2013 opened its doors last July and has been providing its affordable services to the area for seven months.\r\n\r\n\u201cA lot of the time, getting your hair done at a corporate salon can cost you an arm and a leg,\u201d Kelley said, \u201cand that's not something I wanted to bring to the salon. I wanted my services to be affordable for everyone.\u201d\r\n\r\nWith carefully planned prices, Kelley is able to offer quality services for less.\r\n\r\nHairs cuts begin at $10 and are available for men, women and children. Additional hair care, such as color, highlights and perms, begin at $25.\r\n\r\nMane Street Salon offers waxing services for $8, and it will not be long before tanning services will also be available. Although it is not currently equipped for acrylics, manicures and pedicures, Kelley \u00a0hopes to see her salon set up to do so in the future.\r\n\r\nWhen asked what inspired her to open a salon, Kelly credited her children.\r\n\r\n\u201cYou're expected to work so many hours when you work in a corporate salon,\u201d she explained. \u201cAs a mom of five, that wasn't something I could do. So, I decided to open my own salon where I can bring my kids to work with me whenever I need to.\u201d\r\n\r\nKelley's children do not always come to work with her, but on days that they do, they serve as friendly greeters and hair sweepers.\r\n\r\n\u201cMy youngest is almost like our mascot,\u201d she joked of her toddler, Holden. \u201cHe goes to everyone that \u00a0comes in and loves to be held while they get their hair done. Sometimes I think customers come back solely for him.\u201d\r\n\r\nKelley has been cutting hair for as long as she came remember, and she got her training at the \u00a0Clarksburg Beauty Academy.\r\n\r\n\u201cI just started doing it on my own,\u201d Kelley said, \u201cand after a while, I decided to go to school for it.\u201d\r\n\r\nMane Street Salon is located at 100 Eighth Street, and is open Tuesday through Thursday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. To schedule an appointment, call 304-799-0014.
