Salon Fifth Avenue: How It All Began

Written by: admin Date of published: . Posted in Uncategorized

S5A Logo

Who:        Julie Little  (owner of Salon 5th Avenue)

When:      September 1978

Where:     Stopped at a red light between Pershing Avenue and Beaver   Street in downtown York.

What:       Little did I know my future was about to take shape…

How:        I looked to my right and saw the sign “Empire Beauty School”!

Say What??:   I told my parents that I would like to go to Beauty School…

The rest is history!! 🙂


I started my first job as a hairstylist in October of 1979 at Paul of 5th Avenue South. I became Manager and 12 years later my dear friend and mentor Arlene gave me the great opportunity of purchasing the salon!

Seven years ago Paul of 5th Avenue underwent a thorough gutting and renovation at which time I decided to lay “Paul” to rest, (who was he anyway?) and so was birthed Salon Fifth Avenue!!

As Salon 5th Avenue our team offers a wide variety of cut, color and texture services designed specifically for your hair type and lifestyle! Our services are guaranteed to meet the best possible expectations as our staff stays educated and informed of the latest technological advances in order to provide you with the latest in hair and nail care.

We offer complimentary consultations because we feel that communication between client and stylist is crucial to successful hairstyling! It is always our goal to give you the best experience and the best customer service possible. We are a warm friendly salon and  want you to feel like one of the family!!

We do hair AND we DO care…! 🙂
