History of business: The Ceres Chamber of Commerce celebrated the relocation of Luscious Lockz hair salon and boutique from Turlock to Ceres during a Thursday ribbon cutting event.

Owners Laura Garcia and her fiancé Odisho “Odi” Pavir made the move in February 2021 on the heels of the reopening of most segments of society following the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It’s been really, really good and most of my clients have been faithful since during the pandemic so thanks to them I was able to get the salon,” said Garcia. She was nervous about opening a year ago, unsure if there would be enough clients to keep the salon open. Garcia bought the former Pretty Girls Rock salon site and introduced Luscious Lokz to Ceres.

“Every single one of clients followed me and all of them supported me.”

Gathering at the business at 2415 Lawrence Street were Chamber, city and other government officials. Mayor Javier Lopez presented a certificate to Garcia, jesting “I would ask for a haircut but I don’t have any hair. Maybe my eyebrows.”

The salon specializes in haircuts, hair coloring and extensions and has three hair stylists in Shyla Ford, Melissa Ambriz and Veronica Garcia. Hours vary because the salon operates as appointments only but typically the salon is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and Saturdays.
