(March 16, 2010)--The University Center announces the opening of Rios Golden Cut Salons at the UTSA Main Campus. Rios salons have been a part of San Antonio since the 1980s, and the UTSA community now can visit their newest location at the University Center next to Frost Bank on the paseo.
"As we researched services to have in the UC, a hair salon quickly emerged as a top choice among students," said UC Director Lowa Mwilambwe. "It is wonderful to partner with a San Antonio institution such as Rios Golden Cut Salons to bring these services to UTSA."
The salon's professional and certified styling staff offers services including haircuts, coloring, perms and highlights with haircuts starting at $10. Specialty services include braids, cornrows and dreadlocks starting at $45 and hair extensions starting at $65. Make-up artists and facial waxing also are available.
"We are excited to be serving the UTSA community and are pleased to be part of the Roadrunner experience. We invite the entire campus to come by and check us out," said Eric Rios of Rios Golden Cut Salons.
The hair salon accepts walk-in customers and also schedules appointments. The hours are 9 a.m.-7 p.m., Monday-Friday, and 9 a.m.-9 p.m., Saturday.
For more information or an appointment, call 210-694-2080.
