You Saw It Here First!: Lexi's On Main

Starting your own beauty salon with your sister almost sounds like a fantasy. Yet that is exactly what Lexi Tracy and Adrienne Orefice did on December of 2008. Lexi Tracy and Adrienne Orefice are two young, talented sisters who have always had a passion for beauty. They took that passion and got their beauty licenses at the Alpena Beauty Academy.

Tracy, being older, has held her license longer than Orefice. She worked at Illusions in Harrisville right after she graduated from beauty school. Orefice got her license a few years after and wanted to work with her sister. They talked about it for a little bit, and decided to buy a small vacant building on the west side of Main Street in December. With its large windows at the front that displays two hair cutting stations, it looked like the perfect place to buy a salon.

The inside is casual and hip, with two salon chairs on either side of the front of the window and a couple of dryer chairs. Customers will be offered coffee, and they can sit on the couch or lounge chairs and watch MTV while they wait for their appointments. Tracy and Orefice wanted their business to have a feel of a living room that the younger crowd would love to be in and that’s exactly what they have.

In addition to the usual hair services such as perms, dye jobs, and cuts, Lexi’s Main St. Salon also offers a private nail room, where nail technician Orefice will do manicures and pedicures in private.

Lexi’s Main St. Salon is located at 207 E Main St in Harrisville. It is open Monday, Tuesday, Friday from 9am to 5pm, Thursday from 11am to 7pm, and Saturday from 9am to 3pm. They offer their services year round.


I had an extremely hard time doing this article. The interview was horrible, the two girls barely even spoke. They answered my questions just barely. I was surprised that I had enough information to muster this and I must say, I am very proud of myself.
