Hannah Ballou purchased the salon on Uniontown’s square on December 28, 2018, and opened her new business, entitled HB Salon on Jan. 3 in that building.
“I went to Fort Scott Community College Cosmetology school, after graduation in May 2015, I started working at Mercy’s Diamonds in the Market Place,” Ballou said. Mercy Hospital closed in Dec. 2018.
“I built a pretty good clientele and they have followed me to Uniontown,” she said.
“I grew up in Uniontown and went to school there and most of my clientele are from Uniontown way,” she said. “I live in LaHarpe, so it’s kind of ‘meet in the middle’.”
HB Salon is currently open on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The phone number is 620-756-4770.
Haircut costs are as follows: women’s dry cut, $18; women’s wash, cut and style, $25; men’s cuts are $13.
“I offer a variety of hair color and perms, which vary in price depending on the products.”
Hannah has deep roots in Bourbon County. She is married to Levi Ballou, her parents are Tim and Kerri Travis and her grandparents are Arlo and Ernie Eden.
