   Marsha Pomplun glows with pride when she talks about her new shop.

   “Honestly, it’s just my favorite little thing. I’m just in heaven when I come here,” she said. “It’s my happy place.”

   Now, she hopes that Lola Hair Boutique, 313 Watson St. Suite B, will be customers’ happy place, too.

   The new hair salon opened earlier this year on the lower level of the 300 block of Watson Street. Though small, it’s accessible both from Watson Street via stairs down and directly from the municipal parking lot on the east side.

   As Pomplun sees it, it’s easy in and out, private and just the right size for her young business.

   Though Lola Hair Boutique is new, Pomplun is not a newbie in the industry.

   “I’ve been doing hair for 20 years,” she said, noting during those two decades in the business she’s always worked for other salons, including one in Ripon a few years ago and most recently in Oshkosh. “But [I am] super excited to get back into Ripon.”

   This time, though, she felt it was time to open her own shop.
