An exciting new venture with a friend.

Soaps.com has learned that “The Young and the Restless’” Elizabeth Hendrickson has embarked on a new venture with her friend Sarah Sluder. The women partnered to open a new salon in Venice, California called Ellie & Sass. The establishment, located at 1327 Venice Boulevard, is touted as a place to make one stop for all the finest treatments, and as an “inviting escape” that “you won’t want to leave.” Photos shared on the salon’s Instagram page depict a simply beautiful, soothing and serene environment. Hendrickson, or Lizzie, as she is referred to on the Ellie & Sass website, also took to social media to promote the salon’s recent grand opening, and to thank those who had supported her and Sluder in the venture, including her former onscreen mom, actress Kate Linder, who plays “Y&R’s” Esther Valentine and who had a gorgeous orchid display delivered to Hendrickson’s new business.

Hendrickson left Y&R in June after her most recent return as Chloe Mitchell ended with the character faking her death and going off to live her life under an assumed identity with her daughter Bella (Cali May Kinder) and her love Kevin Fisher (Greg Rikaart) in a storyline that also stunned fans with Rikaart’s surprise exit from The Young and the Restless after 14 years on the canvas. Hendrickson played Chloe off and on since 2008, and rose to fame in daytime playing both Maggie Stone and Frankie Stone on the now defunct soap “All My Children.”

Soaps.com wishes Elizabeth Hendrickson all the best with her new venture.
