Want a Cold Beer or a Glass of Wine While You Wait for Your Haircut? Visit Granby's new Studio 17

The salon and day spa opened Tuesday and the high-class treatment it provides is one of the new business' many attractions.

With the first official haircut given to Betty Ayotte of West Suffield, new Granby salon and spa Studio 17 was officially in business Tuesday morning.

But owner Shirley Fauteux-Dunn is holding off on the grand opening party for her business, located at 17 Hartford Ave. in Granby, until Saturday, Sept. 15.

Fauteux-Dunn, a veteran hairdresser and stylist known for her work at the Hair Saloon in East Windsor, said she wanted to be closer to her home in Granville, MA, after many years of commuting.

"I wanted to put my roots down here," Fauteux-Dunn said, noting that she's very happy to be close to her family and friends, many of whom live in and around Granby. "It's a great town."

Fauteux-Dunn couldn't say enough about the help she received from her family in opening the business, inluding her husband Harry and brothers Dan and Martin, as well as her sisters, mother and father.

Among the staff at the new spa are local stylists and sisters Morgan and Paige LeTendre and Dr. Lillian Overman, a specialist in non-surgical facial treatments including Botox. Studio 17 offers cuts, color and more for men, women and children, along with a host of other services.

But the major attraction for many attendees will be the complimentary bottle of beer, glass of wine, water or juice that is served to customers as they wait.

Hours for the new business are as follows:

Monday, Tuesday and Thursday; 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Wednesday; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Friday; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Saturday; 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Look for a full story on Studio 17 next week on The Granbys Patch as the date of the grand opening party draws closer. We'll have much more information about both the business and the party, including the details on prizes, discounted services, raffles and more.
