Meet Your Neighbor
Welcome to MHMS' Meet Your Neighbor segment of our website.
We are pleased to restart our MYN segment with Pedro Aguirre of Vanity Salon at 1484 Tremont Street. Pedro opened his Mission Hill salon in 2018 and is one of the younger business owners attracted to our vibrant community. Here are Pedro’s words about main streets support, the pandemic and the strong spirit of community in Mission Hill ...
“My name is Pedro Aguirre and I am the owner of Vanity Salon and a recipient of the Boston Main Streets Foundation COVID Fund. Being a recipient of this grant reminds me that as business owners, we are so focused on the small details of our businesses - such as paying bills and making customers happy with our services - that we do not consider global pandemics affecting our everyday business life. As a salon owner, I have learned that my business is much more than a place for people to get their hair cut and styled. In fact, our clients come to the salon because they are life-long friends, representatives of all neighborhoods of our great city, and more importantly a family who gather to talk, and think, and share stories of our lives. This phenomenon has made me appreciate our salon family event much and Main Street’s support my salon in this challenging moment assures me that people in Boston and BMSF believe in us wholeheartedly.
Be sure to stop by and say hello and when you are ready for a new look, make an appointment!!”
