The salon owner will rent space to Krista Boldra, Valley Falls, who will practice a couple days a week and do most of the nail care. Boldra once had a salon in her home.

McAfee is a Horton native and a graduate of Midway-Denton High School. Her parents, Pat and Cheryl McAfee, still reside in Horton where he used to be the school principal and also served as superintendent at Midway-Denton. Her mother is a school nurse.

Melissa said she held numerous jobs before deciding to go to cosmetology school at B Street Design in Topeka.

It was a profession she grew up with and believes her inspiration came from both of her grandmothers who had salons in Horton.

“I spent a lot of time with them,” she said.

She has three children, Rylee McAfee, a senior, Drew Maltsbarger, a freshman, and Koltyn Maltsbarger, an eighth-grader. Rylee will be the salon receptionist.

In deciding on a name for the salon, McAfee said she provided Trista Gish’s class with half a dozen names and the kids voted.
