Sheer Perfection Salon will join the slew of businesses operating in Highland Plaza beginning next week.

The salon will officially open next Thursday, March 23, by Fort Thomas resident Carlee Nichols who has been in the industry for eight years. This is the first time she will be operating out of her own shop. 

Nichols has lived in the city since starting kindergarten at Fort Thomas schools. She said she is excited about the chance to meet new clients in her own backyard.  

“I am a member of the Fort Thomas community and have always wanted to have a salon in town, so when this opportunity became available, I jumped on it,” Nichols said. “I love my career and want to meet new clients who live in the same area as me.”

Nichols is a former preschool teacher at Bluebird Christian Preschool and said she is also excited to see some of her former students and their families in the salon. 

Services offered at Sheer Perfection Salon include:

  • Women’s cuts
  • Men’s cuts
  • Kids cuts
  • Natural hair braiding
  • Color
  • Balayage
  • Waxing
  • Blowouts
  • Conditioning treatments
  • Highlights
  • Perms

Highland Plaza, located at 654 Highlands Ave. in Fort Thomas, came under new ownership on Jan. 6, and the new owners made it a top priority to fill the vacancies.

Brent Gilman and Matt Mansfield of Tower Homes acquired Highland Plaza in January from Hank Pogue, president of Fort Thomas Enterprises Inc., whose father purchased the property in 1964. 

The Highland Plaza anchor tenant vacancy, left by the closure of Cobblestone Café, was filled last month by Highland Square Café, slated to open sometime this spring.

“I live very close to the highland plaza and love all the things that they have to offer in the complex, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to work with the amazing people that are already in those spaces,” Nichols said.
