Anew Divine Beauty Salon Holds Grand Opening Ceremony

Posted 10:03 a.m. on Tuesday, May 17, 2022

NILES — A business in Niles that opened last year finally got to celebrate with the community.

The Community of Niles and the Greater Nile Chamber of Commerce attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the Anew Divine Beauty Salon at 1200 W. River Rd., to officially welcome businesses to the area.

The company opened its doors last spring, but was unable to hold an official opening ceremony.

Owner Lawana Wortham was thrilled to share her space with the community.

“It means a lot,” she said. “I’ve had great success being open here for a year and just wanted to take some time to open it up for people to see what we have to offer people in our community.”

The Anew Divine beauty salon has five hairdressing stations on the first floor, in addition to a sixth with a privacy curtain, a pedicure throne, a manicure table, a room for eyebrow and eyelash treatments and a hair salon upstairs to accommodate everyone. The salon is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Tuesday to Friday and from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday.

“I’m a one-stop shop,” Wortham said. “It’s a one-stop shop for husbands, wives and children. Everything is handicapped accessible. »

Wortham brings over 30 years of experience in the hair salon industry with her into her new venture. After retiring as a security guard for 15 years with Niles Community Schools, Wortham knew she wanted to pursue a salon business.

“I’ve always dreamed of having my own shop,” she says. “During the pandemic, I discovered that this was the season to achieve my dream, something I had been thinking about for all these years. This is where I am.

As it enters its second year of business, Wortham hopes Anew Divine Beauty Salon will become a thriving asset to the community.

“I hope it will become very successful and full of people and workers,” she said. “I hope it becomes a place where community members can come and feel relaxed and at home. Our ultimate goal is to be that place where Niles can say he has where people can come and do it all at the same time.
