The former Chase County Extension Office has been transformed into “Just For Looks,” a new hair salon in Imperial. Holli Purkeypile will open for business this coming Tuesday.
Located at 816 Douglas, Just For Looks will be open Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Thursdays and Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 12 noon.
Purkeypile, whose maiden name is Miller, is a Holyoke, Colo. native. She recently spent seven months at McCook Beauty Academy obtaining her Nebraska Cosmetology license, after already receiving her hair stylist license in Colorado.
Purkeypile and husband, Kurt, moved from Lamar, Colo., to Imperial in May of 2008. He is a service manager for New Fashion Pork in Wyoming.
They have a son, Colby, 9, and daughter Kylie, 7.
Just For Looks will provide men’s and women’s haircuts, colors, highlighting, pedicures, manicures, perms and waxing.
Her main product lines are Kenra, Aquage, Biolage and Nioxin.
Purkeypile has two stations, and anticipates looking for a full time booth rental around the holidays.
The couple has totally renovated the building themselves, building a storage room, putting in flooring, painting and installing the stations and shelving.
Just For Looks’ telephone number is (308) 882-3012.
