Modern, sleek and easygoing are words Sarah Althen would use to describe her new hair salon, Kashmir Salon, located at 2 Wainwright St., Suite 130, Washington.

Althen, of Washington, has been a stylist for about 10 years.

“I always wanted to have my own small salon,” Althen said, “something small and simple.”

The shop has four chairs, or stations, and strictly offers hair services and limited facial waxing.

Two other stylists work at the salon, including Jamie Curtman, Owensville, and Jessie Hoemann, Washington.

Both Curtman and Hoemann have more than 10 years of experience, Althen said.

“I’m excited to continue to turn out good hair, and have two good stylists working with me,” said Althen, adding that her goal is to have a fun, easygoing atmosphere for clients.

The salon’s namesake is Althen’s favorite Led Zeppelin song.

Walk-in clients are welcome, she said.

Hours vary, but typically someone will be in the salon Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Fridays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

To schedule an appointment, people may call 636-432-1592.
