BROOKFIELD – A new hair salon called 29ten Salon has opened in the historic area of the city known as the Village of Brookfield.

29ten is located in the former site of Sunnyside Hairdressers at 2910 N. Brookfield Road and is owned by hair stylist Katie Schmitt who has more than 13 years of salon experience and management in the United States and abroad, according to an announcement.

Schmitt has been working to preserve and restore some of the unique character of her salon including showcasing the original tin ceiling and the beadboard walls in the 1904 building. The salon is open while renovation work is performed.

“We are excited to have 29ten Salon join the growing number of specialty businesses in our historic village center,” said Mayor Steve Ponto in a statement. “This last weekend saw a very successful opening of Biloba Brewing on Pleasant Street, and with 29ten Salon and other interest in the area, we are looking forward to continued growth of this unique business district.”

29ten Salon will have a team of stylists who specialize in hair extensions, hair styling and color. The salon will feature UNITE products and will include braid and blowout bars.
