FLINT TWP. — After five and a half years being located at Dye and Lennon roads, barbershop/salon owner Dawn Cataldo felt ready to spread her wings with a new name and a bigger space.
DC Hair Works opened last month at G- 5391 Corunna Road, west of Dye Road.
Formerly called Dawn’s Family Hair Care, the barbershop and hair salon is owned by Dawn and her husband Mark.
“I really wanted to get back into barbering,’’ said Cataldo, who attended the Flint Institute of Barbering in 1985 and became licensed in 1986.
“I love what I do and work with stylists that enjoy it also,’’ she said. “That makes a shop stand out. If you love what you do you’ll be good at it.”
Fewer barbershops in the area offer long walk-in hours, she said. Building up a walk-in trade is one of her main goals in the new spot.
“We do any kind of clipper work from flat tops to buzz cuts,’’ she said. Neck shaves are regularly offered too.
The new shop is slightly larger than 900 square feet with ample room for six chairs – five barber stylists and one stylist.
Two years ago, the shop won the “favorite salon” category in Best of the Best voting by Flint-area residents, she said.
