Salon KG: Where Vintage Meets Modern
2144 Broad St.
Cranston, RI 02905
Prior to opening the salon, Kristin primarily worked for fifteen years in the wedding field as a makeup artist. Having built a large following, Kristin continued her education and graduated from Paul Mitchell Academy in 2011. As a dual professional, she built an on-location hair and makeup team for wedding parties. Kristin’s reputation for excellent service continued to flourish.
Kevin had a twenty-year career in loss prevention working for Macy’s Department Stores in Boston, MA. He decided to leave the corporate world and the long commute behind, and together the couple decided to plunge into the world of small business.
Though Salon KG offers onsite wedding services, the salon’s vintage location is ideal for every bride’s in-salon dream experience. The salon resides in the Huldah F. Chase House, a beautiful Victorian home, that has been restored to its 1892 stately glory. Stroll through the doors and you will be taken by the romantic grandeur of the place.
Throughout the Salon you will likely admire the fine woods and original carvings. The foyer is made of mahogany, while the rear Salon is constructed of oak. The doors are solid wood and the hardware is original to the property. The reception desk was constructed from a 19th-century staircase, which was part of the original home. Great care was put into the styling stations, so that they remain true to the property’s classic feel and charm.
The building appeals to brides and grooms, as the setting makes for the perfect backdrop for picture taking. The property even boasts a private garden in the backyard. Flowers, a coy pond, and a waterfall add a flare of fantasy to any couple’s wedding album.
The practical components are just as impressive with plenty of easy access parking and a fantastic team of professionals. Salon KG offers hair, nail, and eyelash extension services. Male and female clientele are spreading the word through positive reviews.
Kristin and Kevin are proud of the reviews, which they attribute to the time and attention given to building their team. They emphasize skills and positive attitude. Ever present is a palpable ‘teamy-goodness feel,’ as the entire team is focused on creating a positive atmosphere for every client.
