TRIM Hair Salon Officially Open at 2nd and McKean

TRIM Hair Salon opened its doors on Tuesday at 146 McKean Street (map). You may remember that back in October we had told you about rumors of some sort of "barber shop" being planned for the vacant commercial space. Turns out it is something even better -- a locally owned hair salon looking to infuse Pennsport with the "style and sophistication of the Rittenhouse posh" without those uptown prices.

2nd & McKean Sts. is now home to TRIM Hair Salon

Owned by Erin Duffy, fellow Pennsporter with some serious salon chops,  TRIM has transformed the former run-of-the-mill corner store deli into a full range hair salon offering a variety of options ranging from basic cuts to bridal parties.

Call or stop in to grab your next haircut. You can also book your appointments through their Facebook page as well as on

A "Grand Opening Meet & Greet Party" will be held January 17th at 7pm and feature wine and cheese as well as live entertainment from Dirty Whiskey Duo, a "Delaware Valley based acoustic act performing Country, Rock, and Irish music."

It certainly is great to see more locally run business come back to the neighborhood and even better to see a long vacant business space revitalized again. Located just a stone's throw from Target, Marshall's and ShopRite, this location should benefit from nearby resident foot traffic and also people visiting the shopping district. Need a cut? Consider giving TRIM a try and support the local business movement in Pennsport. 

If you're still a little murky on the location, it's on the same block as the tremendously popular cross-street Christmas lights as you come out of the Target area on McKean Street.

Here's the visual of the light display that you've probably Instagrammed by now and tagged #WhyILovePhilly:
