Aledo native Diann (Jones) Slater, after being away for over two decades, returned to Aledo a few years ago to be closer to her family. She began working as a cosmetologist at Salon on 2nd, Aledo, in October, 2012.  When the salon's owner, Jenifer Miller, decided to sell the salon, she approached Diann about the business opportunity. On May 1, 2013, Diann Slater became the new owner. Over the past several months she invested in the business to bring a new look and atmosphere to Salon on 2nd.

"We have undergone an extensive remodel this summer. We've added a Lather Lounge, so you can put your feet up and enjoy the most relaxing shampoo in town," Dianne explained. "The new stations have full length, lighted mirrors. New flooring, all new lighting, and a new ceiling were part of the facelift."

Salon on 2nd offers a variety of beauty salon and day spa services. They installed two pedicure stations, have two nail stations, and offer Shellac, Gelish manicures, and acrylic nails. The cosmetologists, who have a wide range of education and experience, are Brandi Stead, 12 years; Jen Miller, 20 years (former owner); Ashley Rooth, 2 years;  Sarah Lingafelter, 8 years; Diann Slater (current owner), 9 years; and Alanna Rush, 2 years. Ariel Magdenfrau, an esthetician with 5 years experience, offers facials, reflexology, and waxing. She starts massage therapy school in Sept. and soon will be qualified in massage therapy.

With the extensive renovations finished, the staff at Salon on 2nd are planning to celebrate the facelift. There will be an open house on Friday, September 27, 2013, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.  Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres will be provided by La Belle Vie (the beautiful life), Aledo.

Diann and the ladies from Salon on 2nd invite the public to see their new look, enter a drawing for gift baskets, and a participate in a raffle. They are excited to share the experience of the salon's elegant atmosphere and hope that current and new clients will benefit from the extensive renovations and multiple beauty and spa services.
