Get Stylish at a Downtown Hair or Nail Shop

I lived in downtown Detroit for more than a year, and during that time I had a tough time finding nearby nail and hair shops. It was a major inconvenience to drive 15 minutes outside of the downtown area just to find a nice shop. In the past few years, more than 40,000 people have moved downtown thanks to the creation of new jobs and the popular Live Downtown program.

As more housing options are built and renovated, the wave of growth will only continue in the coming years. You can help build the city and small businesses by spending your consumer dollars downtown. Here are five great reasons to patronize downtown shops:

  • Local shops invest in the surrounding community
  • Shopping locally saves time and money
  • Shopping locally creates more downtown jobs
  • Local shops contribute to revitalizing the downtown area and improving the city’s image
  • Local shops add value and reasons why others should come downtown

As downtown and Midtown have evolved, more businesses have popped up. I’ve exhausted my resources to tally a list of barber shops, hair salons and nail shops in the downtown and Midtown areas.
