‘Jaafar Tazi’: New Salon To Open on Main Street

The owner of a well-established, full-service hair salon in Greenwich is eyeing a midsummer opening for a new location in downtown New Canaan. Jaafar Tazi’s eponymous salon will open July 15 on the second floor at 80 Main St., in the space formerly occupied by Li-Ann’s. “Where there is demand, there is supply,” Tazi told NewCanaanite.com when asked why he chose New Canaan for the new salon. “We have a lot of organizations, a lot of clients coming inside [the Greenwich location] from the New Canaan area and they always say there is nothing like our salon in Greenwich in their beautiful little town, so we are trying to brig that up here and we have a lot of people calling us to try and make appointments already.”
