Even though Polly Seaver-Codorniz and Diana Azevedo are not new to the Colusa County Salon industry, they have switched ‘shears’ by opening Changes Salon at 231 5th Street, Suite A in Downtown Colusa.
For the last 26 years, Codorniz and Azevedo have co-owned Shear Class, in Williams. A staple and forefront of the Williams community, it was a place where everyone knew everybody, and was the go-to-place for information.
“After 26 years, our business plan wasn’t working for us,” said Codorniz, “It was one hell of a ride, and we built a great business.”
After much discussion, Codorniz and Azevedo decided it was time to downsize and reevaluate what they wanted out of their business and continue to move forward.
Leaving behind two of their friends and co-workers, both Codorniz and Azevedo issued a statement of gratitude and well wishes for Andi Armstrong and Alma Lemus.
“We are beyond happy for Andi and Alma and their new businesses,” said Azevedo, “I know they will do well in their endeavors and we’ve continued to be friends through this transition.”
Jay Flagor is also working out of the Colusa location.
Codorniz and Azevedo wanted to also express gratitude to the community of Colusa,
“We have been beyond grateful,” said Codorniz, “people have been popping in and say-ing ‘welcome’, and have greeted us with open arms.”
One challenge the two have faced recently and is that of the lack of parking availability in downtown Colusa. “Parking is quite a challenge here” said Codorniz, “however, we are working through it.”
“I would like to thank our family, friends, husbands and our landlord for their support in this transition,” said Azevedo, “We couldn’t have done it without them.”
Changes Salon is located at 231 5th Street, Suite A in Downtown Colusa, or can be reached by phone at (530) 458-2005. P
