Hair House Salon celebrated its 10th anniversary with a grand reopening ribbon cutting ceremony and a new owner. Mayor Ben Blake performed the ritual before dozens of enthusiastic clients, friends and family members.

“Congratulations once again,” Blake said. “We look forward to many years of you making Milford residents look beautiful.” Cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and face painting added to the event’s merriment.

Hair House Salon, LLC., under new ownership and located at 57 Bridgeport Avenue in Milford, offers full services including innovative cuts and unique color concepts in their newly refurbished space.

“We have been here 10 years now and I’m very excited, we started small and we grew and grew and grew,” said new owner and stylist Paula Phelan. “Today we celebrate being here for 10 years and we thank everyone in Milford for keeping us in business. I have worked here for 10 years and just purchased the business 100 days ago! I started with the original crew and am the third owner.”

Phelan trained with Master Stylist Joe Furnari of Moda Capelli of Fairfield and the Sanrizz Academy of London. She continues her education, learning new techniques and trends as they come.
