This will date you: remember "big hair"? and this: Curling Iron celebrates 40 years in business

Back in the old days when “shag cuts” for women were the rage, Sue Fett decided it was time to go into business for herself – cutting hair.

The old days, in this case, mean 1974. Fett opened what is now a Bluffton salon institution called “Curling Iron.” Its first location was on North Main where pizza is now created at East of Chicago Pizza.

Fett moved the shop to its current location at 129 N. Main St., in 1979, when she and her husband, Bob, purchased the building. Deb Wentz joined the shop in 1988 and in 2002 purchased it from Fett.
