Robert Hundley

HAMPTON – Soon after 66 many years in business, Marguerite’s Splendor Salon is closing its doorways, retirement beckoning the two generations of girls who ran it and liked it for many years.

Marguerite Jester opened her primary salon in downtown Hampton in 1955, in accordance to her daughter and current owner Bernice Marzinzik. The company, which Marzinzik took more than when Jester retired, moved a number of instances around its lifespan. But on April 14, Marzinzik will lock the doors of the salon’s existing 861 Lafayette Road place for the last time, the close of an era for scores of loyal clients.

“I did not want to market it,” Marzinzik reported. “This has usually been our family company and I didn’t want to see it in any person else’s palms. I’ll just shut it. My mother is 99 years aged. Her well being is good, but I’m 70 and I want to retire so I can commit a lot more time with her.”
