Carol Cartwright has been styling and cutting hair in Bowling Green for 22 years. This Friday she and the city mayor will cut the ribbon on her new business, the Wright Way Salon on West Wooster Street.
Opening the new salon "was kind of a last-minute decision," Cartwright explained. "I decided I either needed to find another place to work or open up my own salon again."
She closed her previous salon, Changing Times, and became an independent stylist at Revolve five years ago.
The Wright Way is located 1204 W. Wooster St. in Suite 8. Ironically, her husband had encouraged Carol to purchase this location for a salon five years ago. "I just wasn't ready to open up another salon, but here I am five years later opening it up where he wanted me to put it five years ago."
Cartwright subleases spaces in her salon to one other stylist and a nail technician. "I don't have a lot of operators," she said, "but I didn't want a lot. I just wanted enough to cover the overhead but still have a nice salon so I could serve my clients.
"It's not a huge salon, but it's well put together. We have two nail stations, two hair stations and a pedicure station. In a couple of months I hope to have an aesthetician to come in for make-up and waxing.
"We're small, but we're mighty," she laughed.
Cartwright has 30 years of hairstyling experience, and continues her ongoing education and will periodically train other stylists. She and her staff "have a lot of experience and we keep ourselves educated."
"Our atmosphere is very calming and soothing.  I cannot stress enough how clean and quiet our salon is."
While the Wright Way accepts walk-ins, "it really is better to have an appointment. With us being a small salon, the odds are a client might not get service right away." The Wright Way offers easy online booking through its Facebook page.
"We're typically open by 9 a.m. every day. The hours depend on the stylist-one could be here until 8 or 9 o'clock. Nine is usually the last appointment, but we could stay later."
The Wright Way Salon offers full hair and nail services, including scalp and shoulder massages. "We do coloring, cutting, waxing, perming, all that.
"We treat the client as the most important person out there. We want to give our clients a relaxing environment. I have clients who have been with me 20 years. They really enjoy the Wright Way, that it's quiet and it's relaxing. They feel like they're being taken care of."
Cartwright and her clients are pleased with the new salon. "It's a good location, close to where I live, close to where a lot of my clients live. It's not real congested so there's not a bunch of traffic and it has great parking. I don't want to say it's perfect, but it's pretty darn close."
During this Friday's 11 a.m. ribbon cutting ceremony, Cartwright will "introduce the girls that I have working here and some of the key people involved in getting the salon open. We'll have refreshments afterwards.  It's going to be short and sweet," she chuckled.
On Saturday, the Wright Way will have an open house from noon to 3 p.m., when they'll be giving away samples and gift certificates.
To schedule an appointment with Cartwright, go to Wright Way Salon on Facebook or call (419) 354-2244.
