The Social Chair Leases Space at Fountains at Gateway

New full-service blowout bar opens this summer

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (May 31, 2017) — The Social Chair has leased retail space at Fountains at Gateway with plans to open its doors in late summer announced Scott Graby, president of Hearthstone Properties.

The Social Chair is a full-service blowout bar offering affordable luxury services such as signature style blowouts, formal updos and make-up application.

The salon will be located on the ground floor of One Fountain Plaza, the recently completed office building facing the central plaza. Featuring a trendy design and open layout, the Social Chair will offer individual styling stations along with a community dry bar to accommodate larger groups preparing for weddings, proms, formals, girls nights out and other special events.

“We see a growing demand in Murfreesboro for a full-service blowout bar concept that caters to women who want the ‘just left the salon look’ in less than an hour,” said Jessica Shields, who owns the business with her husband Matt Shields. “Our clients will enjoy a friendly, upscale setting and complimentary beverages while our talented stylists work their magic.

“I’ve visited blowout salons in various cities and have always thought the experience lacked a crucial aspect – the ability to socialize while getting pampered. The Social Chair was created with this in mind. It’s a place where clients can relax, enjoy quality time catching up with friends and leave feeling beautiful.”

Graby said The Social Chair is an ideal fit for the mix of restaurants, shops and service businesses at Fountains at Gateway. “As Murfreesboro continues to grow, the city is experiencing increasing demand for upmarket services and The Social Chair will help fill that niche,” he said.

“We have hired a highly experienced salon manager with more than 10 years in the industry to operate the business,” said Shields. “We’re truly excited to be part of Murfreesboro’s new upscale shopping and dining district at the Fountains community.”
