Seta Salon’s move to downtown Deerfield from Deerbrook Mall cleared a key hurdle Tuesday when the Village Board of Trustees unanimously approved its application for a special use permit at 655 Deerfield Road at its Tuesday meeting.
As a non retail first floor business in downtown Deerfield, Seta Salon needed the Village’s approval to occupy the space in the shopping center containing Starbucks and other establishments.

“They’re renovating the mall and we weren’t part of their renovation plans,” Chuck Babikian, one of the owners of Seta’s along with Seta Babikian, said of the company’s move. “Downtown is a very good place to be and we’re excited to be coming here.”
Though no special obligations are being imposed on Seta Salon in exchange for the permit, should the Deerfield Centre development approach full capacity, the shopping center owners may be required to provide valet parking, according to Chuck Babikian.
The business began in downtown Deerfield as Connie Pagano Hair Salon. The Babikian’s bought the business from Pagano. “We changed the name to Seta Salon when we knew we were coming back downtown,” Chuck Babikian said.
In other business, the Board approved a new non exclusive cable television franchise agreement with Comcast and the replacement of an old vehicle.
