Matthew Ryan Salon
just opened in Old Town, but the owner, after whom the business is named, has been on a path to owning his own salon his entire life.
"It's something I've always been drawn to," says owner Matthew Ryan. "It's just very natural for me to be drawn to hair."
After managing a 60-stylist salon in Columbus, Ohio, Ryan moved to the Lansing area to be certified as a stylist himself at Douglas J. Upon finishing his courses, he knew we wanted to open his own place, an the 1,500 square foot Old Town location was the perfect fit.
"It's a beautiful space, with exposed brick and hardwood floors," Ryan says. "Were right in the middle of Old Town, which is such an up-and-coming area. It's going in a really good direction."
Matthew Ryan Salon opened about a month ago and employs five experienced stylists. Ryan hopes the salon will continue to grow and he may add additional services the business' offerings as it does.
