Transforming Hair Styles and Buildings.
Some of you who have been around may remember Chan’s Chinese, located on Colonial Drive. Chan’s closed back in 2020, and luckily, the spot didn’t stay vacant for long. Not only did a new business move in, they gave the building an incredible makeover.
Chan’s is now Educe Salon, an elite, full-service salon owned by couple Philip and Alicia Rosado. If the name sounds familiar, Educe Salon is not new to Orlando. In fact, they were previously located just around the corner on Mills Avenue. When the opportunity to move into a larger space came up, Philip and Alicia reached out to the city’s business development team to take advantage of some of the small business incentive programs available to make necessary updates to the building and create the aesthetically unique space they had long dreamed of.
The larger space allows the couple to achieve their dream of having a salon large enough to educate and mentor new and seasoned stylists. For Philip and Alicia, a salon should be more than a place of work, it should be a place where stylists can receive the support and training necessary to help them grow and mature in their craft.
You can visit Educe Salon at their new location at 1901 East Colonial Drive, or learn more at educesalon.com.
