Vybz Hair & Day Spa moves into a new salon on 11th Street

"I always thought the place would make a cute little salon," said Vybz owner Shelby Timms, speaking of the house they bought and re-did.

Vybz Hair & Day Spa moved last Saturday into a cozy new salon on 11th Street.

“It’s so exciting. I’m very happy,” said Vybz owner Shelby Timms.

What used to be a little home beside Sunshine Inn, is now the new Vybz Salon, and Timms says they completely redid everything.

“Plumbing, electrical, heating, floors, walls, roof, landscaping, you name it,” she said.

“Nothing except the outer shell is the same.”

Timms says she and her husband Lonnie did most of the work, with a bit of help from family and friends.

“All the work they put in was pretty amazing,” said Bare Necessities Spa owner Natasha Brienen, who shares salon space with Vybz.

“It just shows a lot about how much [Timms] cares about the community and the way things look.

“They put so much extra time and effort into making it better for everybody – visually and inside quality,” Brienen said.

Timms says she noticed the little house seven years ago when she bought Vybz and she always thought it would be a cute little salon, so when the place came up for sale, she bought it – with a bit of prompting from her sister.

“I was freaked out, but she talked me into it,” Timms said, adding that it’s a good move and everybody is happier in the new place.

Timms says she thinks the move will spark some interest in the community, and having the salon beside Sunshine Inn will be good for the spa services.

“It’s good to be beside the hotel, and it’s nice to be in the downtown area still. It’s a really good location,” she said.

Vybz will offer the same services as before, including hair, aesthetics, laser, makeup, nails and barber services, Timms said.

Vybz Hair and Bare Necessities Spa continue to share salon space, as they’ve done for the past three years.

“We get along so good,” Timms said of her Vybz employees and Bare Necessities Spa owner Natasha Brienen.

“I moved in here looking for space all of us, to make sure that we could all come, because it just works,” she said.
