Cherry Blow Dry Bar expands to Metairie

Published on NewOrleansCityBusiness.com on June 14, 2018

A New Jersey-based salon that specializes in express hair and makeup styling has moved into Metairie.

Cherry Blow Dry Bar opened at 210 Veterans Memorial Blvd., Suite B in early June. A news release said the shop created 12 jobs, with an additional 12 anticipated in the next two months.

Cosmetologist Shalanta Jackson and her husband Oliver hope to open other shops across the region as their company grows.

The company provides blowouts, hair extensions and makeup services. It received a $225,000 loan from the Jefferson Parish Economic Development Commission, which financed half of the project and covered leasehold improvements and operating capital.

Cherry Blow Dry Bar launched in 2016 and began franchising in 2015. It operates 17 salons in seven states and has nearly 25 more in development.
