Going In Style III opens in Waverly
By Liz Hellmann
The Froslie family has helped people go in style around the Twin Cities suburbs for more than 20 years.
Beth Froslie recently extended that tradition to the community of Waverly by opening the family’s third salon, Going in Style III.
Going in Style III is in the old bank building, on Elm Avenue across from Pete’s Grocery.
“My prices are pretty reasonable and are comparable to other salons in this area,” Froslie said, “and the building, itself, is historic for the community.”
Beth Froslie’s mother, Kathy Froslie, purchased the building last September. Planning for Going in Style III began in November 2003. Beth then took over the building and turned it into a salon.
“My mom had purchased the building, but wasn’t using the property for anything.” Beth Froslie said. “She’s really just financing it for me right now, instead of going to the bank.”
Going in Style III provides hair styling services for the entire family. Froslie cuts and styles men’s, women’s, and children’s hair. Other services the salon offers include up-dos, permanents, colors, foil, highlights, hair treatment waxing, chemical relaxing, and straightening.
“I’m all about the people’s needs and really paying attention to detail and what they want,” Froslie said.
Non-hair services include manicures. Future plans include installing tanning beds.
Froslie is owner and the salon’s sole stylist. She received her license two years ago from Regency Beauty Academy in St. Cloud, and has been cutting hair ever since.
However, Froslie’s experience goes beyond her formal training. Kathy Froslie sold Going in Style I in Monticello to Beth’s sister, Michelle Ewing. Kathy Froslie owns and operates Going in Style II, located in St. Michael.
Consequently, hair care has been a part of Beth Froslie’s life for a long time. “I’ve worked in the salon since I was 11,” Froslie said.
Although all three salons carry the same name, they are all operated independently of one another. Beth Froslie hopes that Going in Style III will be able to cater to the needs of the Waverly residents, and surrounding areas.
The salon is open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. Any questions or to make an appointment, call the salon at (763) 658-4024.
