From cuts + color to perms and finger waves, Louis + Co has done it all when it comes to hair!  After 84 years in business, the busy salon will be closing its doors on Emerson Street.

According to friend of CIS, Eileen Murphy, owner Robert Cassis will be retiring have styling hair for 46 years.  The shop was opened by Cassis’ parents Louis and Theresa back in 1938!

Congratulations to Cassis on his retirement!  The Southie salon will be missed!  Thanks Eileen for sharing!

    My mother took me there in the 1950’s for my haircuts. Louis cut my hair in what was called the Dutch clip style.

    My grandmother went to Louis’s every month to get her haircut and it was already curly so she didn’t really need a set .

    My dear mother Helen Lynch, went to
    Louis & Co for over fifty years when it was located on East Broadway. She started going to the salon after she served in World War ll. She went for years to Ellie. She said she felt like a million bucks when she left the salon.
    I remember going to the salon to have my hair done for my SBHS prom. May 4, 1966. In those days “Southie ” was truly “Southie”. Congrats to all and enjoy your next chapter of life.
