Letter writer: Salon at Liberty Corner offers wellness, too

Graphic by Lori Deaton

I am writing in response to Emily Nichols’ article, headlined “Yogis Corner: Asheville’s ‘Wellness Block’ Creates Synergistic Community,” [Sept. 30, Xpress], about what a new mecca Liberty Corner has become for wellness due to … Asheville Yoga’s rising success.

At first glance, the writer took her time researching the businesses that have grown to become Liberty Corner. In fact, she even [bolded] business owners’ names, with a write-up of what they  offered toward “wellness” to the Asheville area. Emily went so far as to delve into businesses that aren’t even open yet! The spinning studio and coffee house aren’t scheduled to open until 2016! Even the tomatoes got a shout-out that grow on our sidewalk.

My point is, wellness starts in and on top of our head! I work at Salon at Liberty Corner. Our owner, Karen Lenk, has worked hard for seven years creating a space that invites people in to look and feel better about themselves from the inside out.

People don’t just go the a hair salon “to get their hair cut” as Emily suggests. Clients come to us with the weight of the world on their shoulders; they feel overgrown; grays are pulling them down. More than just getting a haircut, hairdressers are morale boosters! We can take a haggard, tired soul and turn her into feeling like Miss America as she walks out glowing!

People always feel better about themselves after they get their hair done. In my 35 years as a hairdresser, my goal is to make women look and feel better about themselves as they walk out our doors. We transform people from the inside out!
