New Flint Township beauty salon caters to clients’ hair, skin and nail care needs with feel of luxury

FLINT TOWNSHIP, MI — A new beauty salon and spa recently opened in the Flint area with a range of services and the experience to care for different hair textures.

The LaTresha Rená Salon and Spa, 1032 S. Linden Road, Suite B, in Flint Township celebrated a grand opening in late November.

It took a long journey to be able to have the celebration because of challenges tied to the COVID-19 pandemic that mandated certain businesses to close and the strict guidelines that followed after.

Salon and spa owner LaTresha Reed told MLive-The Flint Journal that the business offers a full line of care between hair, skin and nails.

“I wanted it to be a pretty much one-stop shop so that whatever person needed they wouldn’t have to go to multiple locations to be able to be serviced in that way,” Reed said.

There was also the option for an ombré look. This was less subtle and hard to see in the screen because of the reflection.

Finally, I tried purple but decided to stick with my natural color. I was too nervous about how different the actual dye would look compared with the color on the AR app.
