A large commercial space that was occupied last by a Tattoo Studio and Museum in Midtown Sacramento is being filled.
Mane Aura is a hair salon that specializes in extensions and color. It has signed a contract to lease the 5,200 square-foot space located at 1712 L St. The salon has recently changed its name from East and Mane Salon. It operated in a space on 706 56th Street, East Sacramento for just over a year. The business is moving.
Rebecca Kingsley, owner of Mane Aura, said that the salon quickly outgrew its five chair salon in East Sacramento. She then began to search for other options to continue the growth of the business. The space in Midtown can accommodate up to 30 stylists.
Kingsley added that there would also be an educational component. There aren't many places in Sacramento where big-name artist can come teach, because there's not a lot space. We hope to provide a space where stylists can participate and artists can share their knowledge.
The Skull Museum occupied the space for many years on L Street before moving to Shingle Springs. The business featured a skull and tattoo exhibit.
Herrera explained that the space had been on the market a few months before receiving several offers. Ownership believed that this use was consistent with their needs and would thrive at this location.
The building is situated on a busy section of L Street, in Midtown. It's just a few blocks from restaurants like Mulvaney’s B&L and Ginger Elizabeth Chocolates. Kingsley was attracted to the location because of its visibility, parking and that it offered clients a place to get food or drink before and after their appointments.
Kingsley says she is currently working through the permit process in order to upgrade the space before opening. She hopes to open the doors by July 1.
