Joel Galloway, owner of Joel’s hair salon and known as one of Little Rock’s top hairdressers, will open a second operation in the lobby of the 300 Third building. He’ll work there part-time (his main salon is in Andover Court) and it will be just a matter of taking an elevator to work, since he’s bought a condominium in the building.
Galloway, who said he’s been doing hair since he was 7 (his mother was his first client), is locating the salon “in the prime spot” in the lobby, and will be visible from Third Street. The salon will have four chairs and “cater to anyone who wants an appointment,” both men and women, Galloway said. The salon will be open weekdays. Galloway estimates 30 percent of his business is from out-of-town customers who’ll be well served by a location near Interstate 30. Haircuts start at $25 and climb to several dollars more, depending on who’s wielding the scissors.
Mary Beth Ringgold, owner of Cajun’s Wharf restaurant, will also open a small grocery and restaurant in the lobby.
