Anderson is now home to Eden Salon and Day Spa, headed up by two beauty industry enthusiasts, owner Melissa Hunter, and salon manager, Katie Mahoney.
They wanted to create a one-stop-shop for all your beauty needs. After many months of planning and preparation, they celebrated their official grand opening — complete with a ribbon cutting with the Anderson Chamber of Commerce — in August 2018.
Today, Eden’s Salon offers a wide range of services, including: hair, lashes, microblading, facials, waxing, make-up, and massages. Products carriers are Kevin Murphy and Brazilian Blowout.
According to Hunter, beauty at Eden Salon and Day Spa isn’t skin deep, though. She says it also means caring about the community and helping others. That’s why they’re sponsoring an effort with Susan G Komen to kick off breast cancer awareness month that’s focused on funding the research and treatment needed to decrease the current number of breast cancer deaths in the U.S. by 50% by 2026.
“We are partnering with the Susan G. Komen Foundation to help find a cure for breast cancer. We will have a booth next to Ford at the ‘More Than Pink Walk’ on September 30, 2018,” Hunter explains. “Eden Salon and Day Spa is dedicated to helping the victims, survivors and families of breast cancer by pledging to do our part to help find a cure for breast cancer one dollar at a time.”
The importance of health and wellness at Eden Salon and Spa is also underscored by the products used. “At Eden Salon and Day Spa, we use 100% organic and biodynamic products that ensure ethical and sustainable sourcing of ingredients that yield maximum results,” a recent Facebook post notes. “Experience the power of plant based skin-care. Our facial services include relaxing neck, shoulder, hand and arm massages that will leave you feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and rested.”
