McALISTERVILLE - With hopes of bringing a fresh, young approach to hair styling, McAlisterville resident Melany Zendt has opened A Genesis Salon.
Zendt opened the salon, which is located along state Route 35 North in McAlisterville, at the beginning of June.
She said she decided to start up her business because she had worked at a salon in Camp Hill for about seven years, and also wanted to be close to her other McAlisterville business, North Ridge Custom Cycles. Zendt also said many area residents encouraged her to open her own salon because of her training and expertise in the business.
