Sandy Ann's Hairstyling finds new location after notice to vacate previous location


Two months ago, there was nowhere to go for Sandy Ann. To her, It seemed like nearly 40 years of memories were over.

Sandy Ann's life was wrapped in her hair styling salon in southeast Rochester, and she was heartbroken when her building was sold and she had to leave.
It seemed there was nowhere to go.

But after we shared her desperate story back in June, she got a phone call.

Thanks to 125 Live, Sandy Ann has a new place to call home and welcome her customers. 

"We're very thankful that we found a place," she said. "Sandy Ann's is still alive."

125 Live staff saw KTTC's story on the salon on June 8, and the following Tuesday they called Sandy Ann and said they have a space.

"I came in here that morning and I go, I could see myself here. It felt like home," she said.

Sandy Ann welcomes anyone, and works primarily with the elderly and a lot of memory care patients.

"I previously have done hair care at a nursing home," said Josh House with 125 Live. "So, I know everything that Sandy Ann is going through, working with these people that definitely just need somebody to care about them and spend some time with them.

Sandy Ann was able to get a new place, get some new customers and keep her long-time customers. The salon is located on the lower level of 125 Live.
