Shear Luxury: New Hair Salon In Township Holds Grand Opening

You could say that Nicholette Coy has been preparing for this moment since she was 13 years old.

That’s when Coy, the owner of Shear Luxury salon on Route 27, first started doing hair.

“It always came back to me,” she said.

Coy attended a vocational high school where she studied hair styling, she said. At 16, she had her daughter, “which kind of changed my focus.”

When she graduated high school, though, she found a job in a barber shop braiding hair.

Coy soon decided she wanted more, and studied for her beautician’s license.

That was 13 years ago; her first job was with another well-established township-based salon.

“I just love what I do, so I’m always educating myself,” she said. “I just outgrew the salon, so that’s how I ended up here.”

Coy’s salon has been open for about four weeks. She said she wanted to get settled in before having her grand opening.

Township Councilman and Mayor-elect Phil Kramer was on hand to help Coy cut the ribbon to her new shop.

For now, Coy is the only stylist. She said she brought some clients with her, but said that about 80 percent of her business is by referral.

Coy said her shop is multicultural, meaning that she works on all textures and styles of hair. She said she soon plans on adding a color bar for hair coloring.

One of the services she offers that not many other salons do is eyelash and hair extensions, she said.

“That’s a specialty that most other salons around here don’t do,” she said. “They do hair weaves, but they don’t do extensions.”

Shear Luxury, located at 1483 Route 27, is open noon to 5 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays, noon to 8 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays.
