A high-end men’s salon will be one of the first tenants to move into the first-floor retail space in Gordmans’ new Aksarben Village headquarters.

Salon chain 18|8 Fine Men’s Salons will open its first Nebraska location by early May in the north end of the building. The chain was founded in Southern California and also has a location in Albuquerque, N.M., but it’s expanding quickly to markets such as Chicago, Atlanta and Dallas, local owner Michael Wohlgemuth said. He is opening the salon with his wife, Debbie; the couple’s daughter, Brittney, will serve as general manager.

The Wohlgemuths plan to hire seven to 12 stylists, barbers and a receptionist to staff the salon. Services will include haircuts, colors and gray blending for men, as well as waxing services, straight razor shaving and facials. It will also offer men’s-styled haircuts for women.

Gordmans will lease the top two floors of the new 110,000-square-foot, three-story building at 67th and Francis Streets. The first floor will be leased by retail tenants.
