Salon to open in Worcester's Canal District

Page Boy Hair Studio will open in this building in March. Adam Hicks, owner of Depot Street Tavern in Milford, will also be opening a restaurant in the same building.

Two friends working at Shrewsbury hair salon Scizzors will open a new salon called Page Boy Hair Studio by March 1 in the Canal District.

Charlton resident Brianna Brooks and Worcester resident Carissa Clearwater will open in the same Perfect Game building that Milford's Adam Hicks will open the second location for his Depot Street Tavern.

Brooks and Clearwater met four years ago and had similar views on the industry, Brooks said. They each have nine years of experience in the business and have gained loyal clientele.

"It's something I've always wanted to do," Brooks said of opening her own salon. She and Clearwater were looking for locations for months before landing on the Canal District site, which they valued for its city setting and exposed brick inside.

"Let's go for it," Brooks said they told each other.

Page Boy will likely close on Sundays and Mondays in order to have training sessions involving area stylists in order to help others in the industry, Brooks said. She said she would like to have fundraisers or other community events in the 1,200-square-foot space.
