Two business partners have opened a hair salon in northwest Sioux Falls and hope to expand the concept in South Dakota.
605 Styling Co. breaks the mold of salons tailored for one gender, catering instead to men, women and children out of its space in a retail center at 4101 W. Benson Road.
“We’re trying to make it comfortable for everyone,” said Brandon Hillman, who owns the business with Trevor Dietrich. “Instead of creating a brand, we’re trying to create a community.”
The salon features a “rustic/modern South Dakota feel … that’s comforting and inviting,” Hillman said. “The design was trying to make it feel like you’re at home in South Dakota.”
He works as a mortgage loan officer at Service First Federal Credit Union, and Dietrich serves in the military, so they’ve hired Tiffany McKillip to manage the business.
605 Styling opened Jan. 9 with three stylists and has hired four more since then. The stylists each have a niche, with services including haircuts, coloring, waxing, nail care and hot towel shaves.
Because of Dietrich’s connection to the military, the salon offers a 20 percent discount to those in the military or public service.
Hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.
A new hair salon in northwest Sioux Falls hopes to build a sense of community among its clientele, which includes men, women and children.
