Local woman serves Rockford with salon on wheels

By  | 

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- One local woman is changing the way we get a hair cut, bringing the salon to our front door.

"Laura's Salon on Wheels" is a mobile hair salon inside of a pink mini-bus. Owner Laura Vilchis said she came up with the idea after her clients kept telling her they didn't have time to go to the salon.

She decided to bring the business others with a set of wheels. The bus travels all across the Stateline area.

"My kids can't drive but they are old enough to sit in the chair by themselves," Vilchis said. "So they come out, I do their haircuts, I wash their hair, they give me a check or a credit card and they go in the house."

The bus is open every day of the week, but Vilchis says salon services are only available by appointment.
