(Cumming, GA) The Cumming City Center continues to expand its list of tenants.

Cumming officials said April Richards will bring a salon with a creative edge to the Cumming City Center. She recently signed a lease to relocate Salon AF & Beauty Co., currently located in downtown Cumming on Pirkle Ferry Road, to the City Center.

“We’re currently in an adorable white house with a fun teal door. We have been open for nearly three years now,” said Richards, who has been a cosmetologist for seven years, specializing in all hair colors, hair extensions, and lash extensions.

“We are relocating the salon because we have outgrown our little space, and we wanted to stay relatively close in distance to our current location. We also wanted a space that is going to suit our creative and edgy vibe.”

Richards added Salon AF has a vibe that people need to experience for themselves.

“The décor is bright and fun with a slight grunge feel. The atmosphere is upbeat, and the music is great – sometimes our clients even get a little dance and karaoke show.

“But the vibe wouldn’t be what it is without the amazing stylists we have at Salon AF. It’s the place where friendliness and warmth meet talent, expertise and flair. We literally have somebody for everyone – from lived-in colors, bright vivid colors, pixie cut specialists, lash gurus, spray tan babes, and our list of services is growing to accommodate many more fun upcoming appointments with our clients.”

Some of the other services provided at Salon AF & Beauty Co. include custom hair coloring, smoothing treatments, lash lifts and tints.

“We decided to move here about six years ago, and we love it here,” she said. “We have three amazing kids who have truly inspired me through every step of this journey, but I couldn’t have done any of it without my husband. He is my best friend, my rock, my shoulder to lean on, cry on, pick up the pieces, charge forward, and most importantly, he is my handyman.”

Richards said she and her team can’t wait to transition into the new space at the Cumming City Center.

“We can’t wait to open at the Cumming City Center and we invite everyone from all walks of life to come vibe with us.”

Salon AF & Beauty Co. is currently open Monday-Saturday by appointment only.
