For a little bit of glitz and bling or to get a new look, Monica’s Accessories Boutique is available to make that happen.
Monica’s is not just a typical hair salon. Owner Monica Duran incorporates a wide array of boutique clothing, as well as jewelry, handbags, cosmetics and hair products.
The lifelong resident of Los Alamos has been in business at the current location for 17 years and three years ago she remodeled the shop and added the boutique to offer her clients something more.
“I love doing what I do,” Duran said. “Hair comes first and the rest is for my clients while they are here.”
Duran and Sylvia Salazar, a cosmetologist, have worked together for the last eight years.
Although she says the location is “hidden” at 1460 Trinity Drive, Suite 9, Duran said she has no shortage of customers.
“My clients know where I am and really support what is going on here,” she said. “I’ve been doing hair for lots of years and I have done very well.”
The shop is a full service salon.
Duran got the idea of adding the boutique from clients who would travel and buy things at boutiques in other parts of the country.
