Carolina’s is kaput at 12th and Tasker. Now what?

After three years of blowouts and Keratin treatments, Carolina’s Hair Studio at the corner of 12th and Tasker is now apparently closed.

Carolina’s, owned by Carolina Colon, opened in 2010, according to city records, but a faithful reader sent us a tip (and you can send one too to that the salon was being emptied Monday. When we stopped by to check it out, nothing remained, except for a few bags of trash and some cleaning supplies.

“Available” signs posted by Capozzi Real Estate were in the windows, but the listing is not yet available online.

When we called Carolina’s phone number, an auto-message said the number had been disconnected but calls were being taken by a different number. We called and left a message and we’ll let you know if we hear anything back.

Looks pretty spacious in there, huh?

Meanwhile, that’s a great location – one block away from the fountain, two blocks from the subway, on the route 23 bus line. What do you think would be good for that spot? Maybe a bagel shop?

    I remember when they were outfitting the space. A lot of work that I believe carolia did herself. Shame. It is in a great location though. Hopefully something of utility opens there. Its actually surprising how anemic that intersection is considering its the crossorads of two bus routes. I see a lot of people transferring there
