Advanced Styling hair salon is the first business to move into the Commons Shopping Center near Coborn’s. The salon moved from the Jefferson Blvd location near Casey’s gas station to the new shopping center Nov. 4. 
Advanced Styling has been in business for over 25 years. The current owner, Shanna Romsdahl has been in charge for the past three years.
Shanna was attracted to the beautiful layout of the building when she viewed the plans for the Commons Shopping Center, and saw an opportunity to create her dream salon. 
“I wanted my clients and my stylists to love their work environment. It’s more beautiful than I imagined. I love my team and wanted them to have more space. I couldn’t have done this without my family and friend support!” said Shanna.
“My favorite part of this industry is getting to meet new people and give them a new look. I love my job and couldn’t have picked a better team of stylists and co-workers!” 
At the new location, Advanced Styling accommodates a full line of hair service; manicures; full body waxing, including Brazilian and bikini waxes; and massage therapy in a chic vintage environment. Pedicures will be available beginning in December.
Elegant armoires house many new product additions, and a new purse line for sale.
The eight stylists, Shanna, Megan, Lori, Jackie, Shanon, Alison, Jennifer and Alyssa, and massage therapist Roanne Euerle are excited to welcome the community to their month-long open house. Stop in for free food and drinks as well as great deals. 
Until Nov. 30, a full foil, haircut and lip or eyebrow wax is only $55 and an all over color, haircut and lip or eyebrow wax is only $50. 
December deals include a full foil, hair cut and mud mask for $60 and an all over color, haircut and paraffin dip for $55. Get a $125 gift certificate for $100, a $90 gift certificate for $75 and $60 gift certificate for $50 in their huge holiday special. Look for a coupon flyer in the Dec. 7 and 14 newspapers. Coupons are good through Jan. 15, 2014.
Shanna and her team invite everyone to come visit their new location, enjoy free refreshments through the month of December, and relax and be pampered in their new home at 751 Rose Drive. 
Advanced Styling’s hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. They are closed on Sunday. Call 763-263-2563 to schedule an appointment.
