Haircuts and Washes and Wigs – Oh, My! Look for the Beauty Barber Shop in a New Location

Volunteer Voice - Fall 2010

The Volunteer Services Beauty/Barber Shop, currently located in the basement of the Main Building near Elevator E, is moving to a new home on Floor 6.

As part of the Alkek Hospital expansion project, which adds 12 floors atop the existing hospital, patients will find beauty/barber services in the new location on Monday, Nov. 8. The move will begin after the close of business hours on Wednesday, Nov. 3, and continue through the weekend.

Patients will be pampered in the new shop which is located conveniently to the F elevators. The new Beauty/Barber Shop, which has been designed like a salon with five styling stations, two shampoo stations and two hairdryers, is beautifully appointed with wood grain cabinets, rain glass and pendant lighting. This new space affords more privacy and charm and lots of windows. Additionally, ample space is provided for wigs, turbans and other amenities.

Starting in October, information about the move will be available throughout the hospital. Signage will be posted in front of the current and former Beauty/Barber Shop locations to help patients find their way to the new shop.

There are other moves for Volunteer Services coming up soon. Watch for information about new locations for the Cyber Center and the Patient/Family Center in the next issue.
