Mrs. T.T.'s opens in Manila
Theresa Tune has opened a beauty salon, Mrs. T.T's, at 336 West Olympia, in Manila.
Theresa and her husband, Patrick, retired and moved to Manila from Senath. Theresa had a shop in Senath for over 20 years.
It didn't take her long to realize she wasn't ready for retirement. She decided to try something different and started sub teaching at EOC Head Start.
"I really like working there but I also missed my beauty shop," she said.
She decided she could do both. Her husband built a shop in the front of their home and last week she was ready to open. The shop is painted in her favorite colors, purple and pink.
During the summer months hours will be Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. and 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Wednesday. When school starts plans are to open in the afternoons after 3:30.
One of her former customers from Senath was among her first customers. She is looking forward to getting started again and serving the community.
"My customers were like family," Mrs. Tune said.
Shampoo, sets, and cuts for men, women and children will be offered. She also will give permanents and eye brow and facial waxing. Color is also planned to be added.
The telephone number is 561-1305. Appointments or walk-ins are welcome.
