We invite you in with a cool glass of water or warm cup of tea, allowing you to relax and leave the worries of the world behind you. Each service begins with a thorough consultation so we may best address your needs.

Since relocating, we have expanded our spa service offerings; including massage, facials, and nail services. Our massage services are approached with a therapeutic philosophy.
Our facials provide nourishing skin care using the highest quality organic products.

Amanda McKenzie, Stylist
An Asheville native, Amanda likes to stay close to family, friends and the beautiful mountains where she grew up. She began her career in 2005, attending Carolina College of Hair Design. Searching for new opportunities, she looked downtown. After visiting Adorn, she knew it was perfect fit. This was the environment to allow her to be free-spirited, and bring her young fresh style to blend with Adorn’s creative and eclectic atmosphere.
On her own, Amanda loves hiking, reading, music, playing piano, traveling and spending time with her dog Bella.
Andrew Williams, Stylist
Andrew began his hairstyling career after getting too many botched cuts himself. Taking his hair into his own fifteen-year-old hands, he found himself entertained by the psychological and architectural nuances of creating a flattering and original head of hair; he began trying his new hobby on fellow musicians. After a short time, requests for his new cuts became a daily occurrence. Realizing he could be a not-so-starving musician with a license in cosmetology, he began training for his license and graduated shortly after turning seventeen. Andrew's quest for a place to connect with a diverse clientele and eclectic musicians brought him to Asheville and adorn.
In his off time, he likes to write songs, study insects, and chug espresso.
