The Cutting Room is Wilmington’s AVEDA Salon
A salon in a beautiful historic Wilmington home
Amanda George is the owner of The Cutting Room Salon and Day Spa and a true entrepreneur! The Clinton County native grew up in Clarksville, graduated from Clinton-Massie and learned her craft at Laurel Oaks. Not only has this enterprising woman started a business, but she also renovated and remodeled the historic home that houses the salon at 135 N. South Street.
“I really like the demolition phase of the project- tearing down walls, pulling off wallpaper!” – Amanda, owner, The Cutting Room Salon
And what a beautiful transformation this old house went through- I feel more beautiful just walking into this salon!
The Aveda Experience
When Amanda started out at a small salon in town she was introduced to Aveda and fell in love with the organic products and their philosophy of environmental leadership and favored the extensive education they offer their stylists. She was very concerned about long-term exposure to harsh chemicals in other hair and color products both for herself and her clients. When she was able to go out on her own, she pursued an Aveda license for her salon and is the only one in the area.
The Cutting Room has grown a lot since she first started out and now offers full nail services, facials, massages and waxing in addition to traditional hair services. When you enter the salon, the gorgeous winding wooden staircase will take you upstairs to a transformative spa experience. Ahhh, take me away!
“Aveda is all about relaxation. Women are busy, and that’s why I created this salon to give local women a place to feel pampered.”
One of the most popular specials is going on right now in the month of February- Chocolate Spa Pedicure with complimentary chocolates and wine. This sounds like the perfect Girls Night Out to help lift your spirits during the doldrums of winter! And all of this for only $35! And right now the Shampure line is 20% off in the store.
Jessica Dodge who manages the front desk will get you scheduled for your services and make sure your experience is fabulous! She recommends calling now for May Prom appointments, and they’re already getting bookings.
A True Entrepreneur
Amanda and her husband are also starting a second business because they are true entrepreneurs! They purchased an old farm on State Route 22 just outside of town, and are renovating the barn and farmhouse to be a premier wedding venue. Amanda envisions a place where the bride’s family can celebrate and stay together in a family friendly, open atmosphere. And best of all, the bridal party will have access to a full-service salon and talented stylists!
“We start renovations this week, and we have no idea how long it will take! It will be a work in progress and we’ll keep posting some photos as we go along.”
Amanda is a generous employer who also encourages other female entrepreneurs. Lorin Victor is one of her stylists going out on her own with Amanda’s blessing, opening Salon Mane on Main Street this Spring. And her daughter is a talented stylist who works at the salon and has her own furniture renovation and painting business called The Wooden Spool. Her pieces are gorgeous and some of her work will be at the new wedding venue as well!
