shampoo salon, a hair salon owned by Keelan Baker and Phuong Nguyen, is now open at MKT Heights, a development by Triten Real Estate Partners and Radom Capital at 600 N. Shepherd. The salon, which had been in Midtown since 2013, occupies a spot in Building 1, across from La La Land Kind Café and Sweetgreen and near SMYL Dentistry and Burdlife. “We chose MKT because it’s a great opportunity to be in a setting with an abundance of natural foot traffic from our neighboring tenants and the nearby community,” Nguyen said in an announcement. “We love the focus on family and people of all ages at MKT. It allows our stylists to be able to enjoy their new workplace and gives us the opportunity to grow our business and customer base naturally.”
