An Asheville Hair Affair

It was a cold winter night. I had been running around the City of Asheville for weeks, so much that my hair was gaining length. I reached out to her several times, asking for just a little piece of her time, a few moments to cut me down to size; but she could not. I wandered aimlessly for a few more days, with hope still alive. Then she appeared, but not the one I originally sought. She touched my hair, looked into my eyes, and saw my bare soul. It was then I fell into her chair, spread my hair, as the scissors began to cut away the locks.

Weeks later, the one who owned my hair reached out to me. I then went to see her. She smiled, grabbed my head, felt the length of it, and said “someone has had a hair affair.” I felt exposed, violated; as if I cheated on a lover I had dedicated my heart to. But it was not my heart, it was my hair. And she was not my lover, but my hair stylist. I bowed my head in shame and said “it is true.” I then poured my heart out to her about how lost and lonely my hair was without her, how another had trimmed me away; and how I was swept off my feet for a moment. But now I had come back.

With the many folks that we meet, and all of the ends of town that we visit regularly; some of us get our hair cut at a few different places. I mean a good hairstylist or barber is busy, especially when then get well known, and sometimes there are scheduling conflicts, many times ours. We may have a photo shoot or video to do suddenly in the next day or so, and it is too short of a notice for them. So sometimes with our schedules we need backup. Now there are hundreds of barbers and stylists out there, but we wanted to introduce you to two that we know and have experienced; plus a mention of a third. We actually sent some questions over to them so you could learn a little bit more about who they are and what they do. Please read:

Heading To South Asheville For A Haircut

final cut hair salon asheville

There are so many choices when it comes to getting your haircut in Asheville North Carolina. I remember back in the days when I worked downtown, I would only let one person touch my hair; and that was Guadalupe. He did it right, perfect, and was full of creativity. But as time passed, I ended up on many ends of town and started building relationships with many hair stylists in the Asheville community. When I go to Hendersonville, I end up at Lux Salon. Sometimes I head to a barber in the area, but as the seasons are changing, I need more hair and I want it somewhat styled. So I found this place called The Final Cut Salon & Spa at 3759 Sweeten Creek Rd, Asheville NC 28803. This is a new spot in town, and we love to boost any small business we can find.

Shasta was the hairstylist and what a great job she did! I was feeling “bushy” and when I get like that, my head feels heavy. Maybe it is psychological, but it is harder me to think clearly with a full head of hair. I love a clean cut, with a little to style on top. And that is exactly what I got here at The Final Cut Salon in south Asheville.

After the great haircut, I noticed that they had these new hair products called No Inhibition. The wax that I choose for my hair has guarana & organic extracts. I bought some, used it the next morning, and perfecto! I got to check out the back room which is being constructed into a spa and lounge as I speak.

If you are looking for a great new salon, and a wonderful stylist; contact Shasta at The Final Cut 828-676-3555.




My Hair and Spa Adventure in Hendersonville NC

lux salon hendersonville north carolina hair After our last episode in Hendersonville North Carolina, we decided to head back to LUX Salon to have a few of the many beautifying and relaxing experiences they have to offer. When I walked in, Meagan immediately welcomed me and we talked for a few moments. Then Casey came up, led me away, and offered a cup of coffee. Gladly accepted. This was just the beginning. casey lux salon hendersonville I was taken into the “Quiet Room” which is a whole ‘nother world. The lights were dimmer, the music was softer, I was listening to running water… as Casey started massaging my hands with sugar; leading to an amazing paraffin hand wax. Wow! I am SO addicted. This was like the engagement period, the red carpet, the road to a wonderful experience as I began to relax and kind of let this take me away.

 

And it did… Jenna took over (or took me over) for a “Wash House Experience” that I will never forget. I am very high energy (I do more work in my sleep than you do in real life) but this completely melted my mind and “forced” me to relax a little more. The product they used was so refreshing on my scalp, and believe me.. her fingers did the walking.. and they gave me an incredible hair-wash-massage. You have never! At one point I shivered, and at another point I was covered in goosebumps, I even dreamed for a second as actual feelings came back into my body and soul. From a social media robot, back to a human being in less than an hour. I am tellin’ you! So WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you Jenna. jenna wilson lux salon hendersonville north carolina Jenna Wilson Gary Charles Lux Salon Hendersonville NC Next, Jenna took me out to her magical hair station and cut my hair perfectly. She matched my style with a “haircut” that I felt very comfortable with. It brought the real me out even more; which if some of you would get to know.. is so beautiful hahaha! Anyway, you know what I’m saying’.. this place got the goods. If you do not know where to start, start right here, at LUX, and tell them Gary said they can hook you up! They will take care of you. Let their creativity give you an enhanced or new image of the beautiful (or handsome lol) you.
