Darlington’s newest hair styling center, Salon 316, was formally introduced with a July 21 ribbon cutting ceremony and open house staged by the Darlington Downtown Revitalization Association. Friends and family joined DDRA board members and City of Darlington government representatives to welcome salon owner Tiffany Williamson (center, left) to the city’s business community.
Williamson says opening Salon 316 is the culmination of a long-held dream, and the business name conveys her belief in the higher power that helped her dream come true.
“I got it from the Bible verse John 3:16 because I felt that God so loved me that He gave me a gift to do hair, and I’m just so grateful for it,” says Williamson.
Salon 316 serves clients of all ages and offers a wide variety of hair styling options, from flat ironing to permanent waves, in a cheerful and sunny setting. Formerly home to a tax preparation office, repurposing the space required a major overhaul, and Williamson attended to every detail – from flooring to painting to décor – with one goal in mind.
“I want an atmosphere that is relaxed and conducive for everyone to feel comfortable and welcome here,” Williamson says.
Mayor Tony Watkins thanked Williamson for placing her faith and her resources in Darlington.
“What I see here is pride and investment, and if you’ve got that spirit to succeed, you will succeed,” said Watkins.
Salon 316 is located at 508-1 Pearl Street in Darlington, phone 843-409-9295.
