Lauren Manzo has officially closed the doors of her first Franklin Lakes salon, Cafface Beauty Bar. The Manzo’d With Children star tells me that she wants to concentrate on Full Blown, her new full service salon in Wayne, as well as the opening of her soon-to-be second Full Blown location in Dobbs Ferry, NY.
“We were going to make this (Full Blown in Wayne) a second location, but it ended up being just so much extra work. I’m only one person and the manager that was in Franklin Lakes wanted to open up her own salon, so I decided to partner with her, so now we’re going to be doing Full Blown Westchester,” she tells OMJ. “And I figured Franklin Lakes and Wayne are close enough, so we kind of call it more of a relocation. So that’s what we did. We relocated to Wayne.”
The 28-year-old expectant mother also tells me that high rent was another factor into closing Cafface, which had been in business since 2012. Lauren opened her Wayne location in May, right next door to her cousin Candice Laurita’s adorable shop Dazzle Candy.
The new Westchester County salon, which she is building with partner Lia Cagliostro, is set to open sometime this fall.
