Salon owner Patty Devlin is about to triple the size of her business, expand to spa services and gain the independence to make her business space her own — just by moving one mile away, and by putting Shrewsbury Street in the rearview.

Devlin, 32, formerly of Uxbridge and now living in Douglas, is, for the moment, the owner of The Salon at GLOW, a hair salon at 386 Shrewsbury St. (next to Anytime Fitness) that subleases space from GLOW Tanning.

Devlin, who has owned The Salon at GLOW since 2013, is putting her 14 years of experience in the hair styling industry to the test by moving to 50 Lake Ave., where she, along with five of her current employees, will open Avenue Fifty, a hair salon and day spa, in mid-June.

“We’re outgrowing the space. When we opened at GLOW, I was a subtenant of the tanning salon. But it was a good place to start my first business,” Devlin said. “Now that things have gone really well, we are moving over to Lake Ave. to expand and open more of a day spa than just a hair salon.”
