COLLINSVILLE – Rootz Organic Salon debuted its new space at 124 Main St. in Collinsville on Tuesday.

The salon moved to the space after some 12 years at its old location further down Main Street.

Owner Jennifer Gero said the new space allowed her the chance to design a hair salon from scratch. On Tuesday, she was overwhelmed with gratefulness for the artists and handymen who helped design the space and the generosity of her employees and customers – several of whom came with cards, plants and the historical photo or two.

“It’s above and beyond anything I can imagine,” Gero said. “It’s truly amazing. I cried a lot this morning for the amazing kindness of people. I’m just enjoying it and taking it all in.”
