Unique Flairs, a local hair and nail salon owned by friends, Lavin Weinreis and Nelly Mueller, opened in 2011. In 2018, Unique Flairs took over the Mr. John’s salon, and in April 2019, merged with A List Salon to become a larger salon featuring seven booths, two manicure tables, and two pedicure stations.
“We offer a variety of options — manicures and pedicures with gel polish, hair colors, facial waxing, haircuts, perms, relaxers, and style hair for special occasions.” Weinreis said. “We also sell a large variety of products here in the store.”
They have different products for different hair types, curly, frizzy, dry, damaged, that can be seen throughout the store.
“The art of doing hair is that everyone wants something different.” Mueller said. The stylists take part in the fun creating different cuts and colors for everyone, and making friendships as well. “We have clients that have been coming to us for 15 years.” Mueller said.
“We have seven stylists here, which gives us 75 years of combined experience,” said Mueller. “Our hours vary per stylist, per day. We strive to have a consistent schedule, mainly 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.”
The salon makes you feel invited, with an open floor concept. Each stylist has an individual booth that offers a relaxing experience to the customers, and its own shampoo bowl and waxing station.
 “You make many friendships and learn more about a person than what their favorite hair color or cut is when you spend time with them, and get to know and understand them.” said Weinreis.  
Unique Flairs is located at 371 Wisconsin Ave. S.W., and can be reached on their Facebook page, Unique Flairs, or by calling 352-4911.
