 Dottie’s Thompson now at Village Plaza

Susan Thompson, who began her career at Dottie’s Beauty Shop in the 1960s, is now working at Village Plaza Hair Styles. “I just want to let my regular customers know I’m back and where I’ll be working,” she said.

Thompson will be doing a little bit of everything at Village Plaza, just as she has for years, she said, including hair cuts for women, men and children. She also excels in setting hair, a trend that she says is not as popular as it once was. “But a lot of ladies, especially older women, really like getting their hair set, so I expect to be doing a lot of that, too,” she said.

Thompson will be at the salon Mondays and Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
