Christine Karow Hair Designs relocates

By ED FRANKS ( , Pine Island Eagle

Christine Karow Hair Designs recently relocated from its previous Pine Island Road location (across from the Water Company) to the Island Exchange on Stringfellow Road.

"This is an ideal location for us," Karow said. "I really needed more space to expand and more parking. Those were my main reason for moving."

Karow has been a hair dresser for more than 25 years. She started her career in Twin Lakes, Wis. She worked for a few years as an independent contractor before opening her own shop.

"I always wanted to be a hair dresser but I went in a different direction for about 10 years," Karow said. "When I got married, my husband encouraged me to go to school and open my own business. I owned my own business in Wisconsin for 7 years before coming to Florida."

Karow's first location in Florida was in St. James City. After a couple of years there she relocated to the Pine Island Road location.

"The Island Exchange is such a great location and the businesses seem to compliment each other very well," Karow said. "When you add it up, I've been serving the Pine Island community for five years now."

"I'm happy and excited to say Pam Whitney is also with me at Island Exchange," Karow said. "Pam has been in the business for over 20 years."

"Pam and I are excited to finally be open in our new location in the Island Exchange complex with the Pine Island Eagle and Little Lilly's Island Deli," Karow said. "We have some new additions in hair and massage: Lisa Thorpe, Karen Arkebauer, Vonnie Bixby (starts in July) and Pam McCarty."
