Changes in life can inspire changes in how you work. In the case of Amy Robson, that meant striking out on her own. Her new shop specializes in all manners of hair styling plus massage therapy.

Amy’s Beauty Salon & Massage has just opened its doors and will hold its grand opening from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday. It is located at 1420 Glacier Ave., Suite 102.

Robson has been in the hair business for eight years and was working at Rejuvenation Salon & Spa. After having a baby in December, her mind was made up. As she put it: “That’s the whole reason I went out on my own.”

In fact, keeping the place as a family salon is one of her business goals. She invites the young ones in to accompany their parents and even cuts children’s hair.

“I like the fact that its kid friendly,” she said. “Kids are welcome.”

She said also likes working with her sister, Kim Glasow. Glasow and Sitthida Fukkamon are the salon’s licensed massage therapists.

Along with Robson, it also employs two other hairdressers, Vanessa Deitrick and Jerrick Cale.

Robson’s first inspiration for her line of work was family tradition, as she and her family practically grew up in her grandmother’s salon, she said. Now that she’s made it her own place, she still has plans and would like to include her own beauty supply store to complement the salon someday.

As the grand opening coincides with First Friday, the salon will showcase local artists Dale DeArmond and Iris Tripp.
