Great Interview w/ Nonnie Berard from The Headquarters Salon…

Great Interview w/ Nonnie Berard from The Headquarters Salon…

Today we were able to speak with one of the owners of The Headquarters Salon Nonnie Berard originally from Breaux Bridge, LA. The Headquarters Salon is a full service salon located on 213 Guilbeau Rd. in Lafayette, LA. The business is currently celebrating it’s second year. From outside… it looks like a regular business in Acadiana…but when you walk inside you are transformed into a business with many memories of Live Music and it’s shows. The salon is decorated heavily with guitars, a piano, old classic albums from many genres, and many things that will make you comfortable to relax and give your style a little more Rockin’ look. The salon also has a full time massage therapist Susan Stewart and she is currently running a Swedish Relaxation Massage for an hour for $60.

There are many varieties of styles that the stores owners Nonnie Berard and Krystin Dupuis Avant could have designed around, but after growing up with Live Music in the Acadiana area… with family and friends as musicians… the theme is here to stay! Thank you for supporting music in general in Acadiana and reminding us that creative expression is another great part of Louisiana and it’s people!
