South Main St. Salon offers modern vibe

EVART — Clients who step through the doors of South Main St. Salon won't find the frilly photographs of smiling models showing off their new bleached blonde asymmetrical cut. In contrast, the remodeled business owned by Evart resident Casey Huber looks more like a well-kept car garage for classic cars, even down to the black leather furniture and styling vanities that resemble name brand tool chests.

"I'm not really a girly girl," Huber said. "I just wanted a more modern place in town and something different from everyone else."

Huber was born and raised in Evart, then went to beauty school in Mount Pleasant and became a licensed cosmetologist. She owned a salon in Traverse City, then moved to Vegas to follow another career path, but decided Evart was where she was meant to be. She moved back last year and is happy to once again be near her family.

Huber always took interest in the cosmetology world and loves working her magic on clients of all ages and personalities. She, along with fellow cosmetologist Erin Diemond, provide a number of services.

"I like being an artist and knowing what a look is going to look like before my clients do," Huber said with a laugh. "I like it when people look at their hair and love it."

South Main St. Salon offers cuts for men, women and children, color and highlights, waxing, makeup, ultraviolet tanning and spray tanning and more. Shampoo and tanning supplies also are available for purchase. A ribbon cutting for the salon is slated to take place at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 9.

Huber said she is keeping busy in her first official opening week thanks to local residents spreading the word about her business.

"I am so excited to do be able to do my own thing," she said. "Clients feel comfortable here. It's something new and different to try."
