Mane de Leon, a full-service hair salon has opened its custom-designed, new location in historic, downtown St. Augustine at 137 King Street. Salon owner and long-time local businessperson and hair stylist Dana Mickler, moved from her former location in St. Augustine at 2302 N. Ponce De Leon Blvd., to the new 1,500-square-foot salon which is adjacent to the renowned Butterfield Art Gallery.

Beginning on Wednesday, June 20, Mickler will hold a silent auction at the salon to benefit the Junior Service League of St. Augustine’s Kids Bridge Family Visitation Center. Then, Mickler and her staff will welcome the public to the culmination of the fundraising effort to commemorate the new business space on Friday, June 22 from6 pmuntil9 pm. Food and beverage will be served and prepared by local restaurateur Craig Colee, owner of Cellar 6 in St. Augustine. The grand opening will be free and open to the public.

“We are fortunate to be able to grow our business in St. Augustine and bring our staff and customers to the newly-expanded location. We’ve also met many newcomers since we opened a few weeks ago,” Mickler said.

Mickler has more than 17 years in the hair and beauty industry. She and her team specialize in custom and corrective color while offering hair cuts and styles, updos, makeup services, nails, waxing and beauty packages for weddings, girl’s night out parties, and other functions. The new salon features a custom designed, granite top color bar that is unique to salons in the area with chemical work and hair color analysis for customers in the front lobby of the salon along with service areas. Mickler and her professional staff of hair stylists include Nancy Repp, Candice Stevens, Charlene Dunton, and Savannah Goller. “Additionally, with our new retail space we look forward to serving the region with hair products and equipment including Paul Mitchell retail and hair color, and Kenra, Purology, and Lanza,” said Mickler.

Born and raised in St. Augustine, Mickler shares a long history in the Minorcan community of St. Augustine. Mickler attended school at St. Joseph High School and during this time became an honored member of the Royal Family of St. Augustine as the princess. She is active in Minorcan activities with her family and is a member of the Junior Service League of St. Augustine and the St. Augustine Chamber of Commerce. Mickler and her staff are all licensed cosmetologists in the state of Florida.

Mickler attributes the success of her business to an outstanding staff of highly-trained beauty and salon experts who regularly participate in a wide variety of industry style events and business courses including specialized training with Paul Mitchell and leading salon professionals. Most notably, Mickler and her staff train with Nick Arrojo in New York’s SOHO district where some of the world’s most progressive styles and products are tested and become international trends. Mickler also teaches hair cutting and color to her staff and a variety of students from the hair industry at her salon.

“Hair cutting and color is a discipline and an art form. With hundreds of products and methods to serve the customer, we implement the latest in techniques and education. We are honored to be operating our business in the historic City of St. Augustine,” she said.

Mane de Leon is open for business on Tuesday from 9 am until 5 pm; Wednesday from11 amuntil7 pm; Thursday and Friday from9 amuntil5 pm; Saturday from9 amuntil4 pm. Appointments are recommended and walk-ins are welcome.
