Some say Fair Oaks Village is home to as many as 10 separate hair salons. Some say there are as many as 20. And there are still others who say there are nearly 30. Regardless of how many there, how many does The Village actually need?
At present count, there are at least 15 hair salons openly operating in Fair Oaks Village:
Many regard the number of salons as a welcome addition to The Village, saying the variety only encourages customers to visit the square-mile Fair Oaks nook. Others believe it won't be long before people start referring to the area as "Hair Oaks" Village, if they haven't already.
"It doesn't bother me," said William Charles Salon co-owner and Fair Oaks Village Enhancement Committee member, Charles Miller. "Everyone has their own niche and their own clientelle. It brings customers to The Village."
All the same, another salon is preparing to open its doors at 10147 Fair Oaks Boulevard. Its name: The Village Salon.
