Brandie Williams has been cutting hair for the better part of 15 years, mostly working for chains. Now she will cut hair in a mobile unit that looks like a silver bullet.
Williams is starting Mesa County Hair Stream, which will operate out of an Airstream trailer that will be located mostly at 11 N. Park Square in Fruita, across from the Go-Fer Foods.
"It's pretty cute, the building looks like a silver bullet," Williams said.
Williams will run the place on her own, but said her husband, Andy Karlen, is a co-owner and helped her get the business off the ground.
Williams said she was looking at purchasing a barber shop in Fruita, but that fell through. Williams specializes in men's haircuts, but also does women and children. Her prices are $12 for men, $15 for women and $10 for children. She does haircuts, beard trims and can wax noses and eyebrows.
She'll be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday in Fruita and hopes to have the trailer in Grand Junction on Mondays.
Walk-ins are welcome or to make an appointment call 201-0598.
■ A Grand Junction business providing medical and legal nurse counseling, recovery celebration and first responder training has moved into a new home with more space.
W.I.N.G.S. — Wholeness, Integrity, Nutrition, Goals and dreams and Spirituality — moved Dec. 7 to 735 Bookcliff Ave., Unit D. W.I.N.G.S. was previously at 2232 N. Seventh St., Unit 6.
Founder Jeanette A. Burgess said she needed separate offices for different parts of the business and a conference room for teaching.
Burgess is planning to host an open house at the new location Friday through Sunday including a celebration of life ceremony at 6 p.m. Friday and 3 p.m. Sunday for people who have died.
Burgess launched the business in August and has plans to add a dog day care and a medical transportation service. The transportation part would boast a van with a wheelchair lift with enough room for families to ride along. The van would be manned by Burgess, an EMT or a certified nursing assistant.
