New owner, new home
Lisa Labbé, center, has purchased Hair It Is from longtime owner Lisa Wallace, right. The new owner also took the opportunity to move the salon into a building she and her husband Lane own on Bradley Street next to the Quincy Provisions complex. Lisa Labbé has been a hair stylist for some 30 years and has worked at Hair It Is for the past eight years. She and Lane also own the New England Ranch on Quincy Junction Road. Although no longer the owner, Lisa Wallace says she is not yet ready to retire even with 34 years in the trade, and will continue working full time at the salon as will Pat McMahon, left, who has been there 10 of the 27 years that she has been a stylist.
