The Hairitage Beauty Salon, located in downtown Meadville, specializes in all aspects of cosmetology including hair, nails and massages, and it serves as a day spa.  The salon also sells an array of seasonal local products made by the employed beauticians.

Cindy Hart opened Hairitage in 1986.  Since then she has employed more than 20 members of the local  Meadville and Cochranton communities.

“All our [employees] live within a 40 mile radius, the girls here take pride in their work,” said Hart.

A majority of Hairitage’s customers are local residents who regularly meet with their respected cosmetologists.

“The people I work with are family, we are woman, we talk, we share our happiness and our problems,” said Kathy Perry, an employee of 29 years.

Candy Morrell, the salon’s booking secretary, agrees with Perry’s feeling of a family atmosphere amongst the staff and their customers at Hairitage.

“This is quite a group of woman here… it’s not just an income it’s something I enjoy,” Morrell said.  “We try to make everybody feel special by the time they leave, we try to make our clients know we care.”

The salon not only serves the community in beautician, but has collected donations on several occasions for local residents in need after family hardships.

Candy Morrel, booking secretary for Hairitage Salon, confirms appointments over the phone on Monday, Nov. 2, 2015. Morrel began working as booking secretary when childhood friend and owner of Hairitage salon, Cindy Hart, offered her a job.
