Hello, I am Jeanne Perry of Appearance’s Salon and Spa. Our business is located in the Woodfin, North Asheville area of North Carolina. The key people in this business are Jeanne Perry (owner), Misty Baker (senior hair stylist), Meghan Jenkins (hair stylist), Courtney King (massage therapist), Angelina Belada (esthetician), and Bob (my hubby) does our shop maintenance when he is not on a remodeling project.
I bought this business from the former owner. I had worked at the Salon for a few months when the owner approached me about purchasing the business. After lots of discussion, we bought it and began to rent out booths. Now we have all employees working for us. My husband remodeled the place and made it look as it is today. We went through a rough year with not only the economy hitting us, but I had surgery in May 2008, barely escaped death; and then Bob had suffered a heart attack in November 2008, maybe from helping me out so much during my surgery. It was a lot to go through and we thought we were going under… but here we are today still shining, smiling and assisting the community with quality affordable haircuts, color, and spa treatments.
I love the Asheville area. I love the people, the mild Winter, long Fall and beautiful Spring. My husband Bob and really enjoy gardening and this area has a long growing season. The people here are so nice. Asheville is a City with that down home feeling of a small town.
