TIME FOR CHANGE. Janie Rome and Connie Hotard closed the doors to the Curler’s Corner on May 31 after 39 years in business.
After nearly 40 years of serving Norco as a full-service salon, Janie Rome and Connie Hotard have closed the doors on their shop, the Curler’s Corner.

“It’s just time to close it up,” said Rome. “We’ve been doing this for a long time and now that we’re older, we need to take time for ourselves.”

Family, friends and patrons all gathered at the shop for a retirement-like party on May 31.

Complete with cake and other tasty treats, everyone toasted the two sisters with champagne in hand.

“It’s so great to be able to celebrate almost four decades of being in business with our family and friends,” said Rome. “It’s been fun, but it’s time to move on.”

So just what do the gals plan to do now that they have all this free time on their hands? Well we aked and they told.

“I really want to spend time with my husband,” said Rome. “He’s about to retire.”

“I’m going to spend all the time I can with my family and just enjoy the life I have,” said Rome.
