Beauty is alive and well in Collinsville, and a new salon, the True Roots Beauty Bar, seeks to offer the community another place to get dolled up. Located at 4743 Kings Mountain Road, True Roots Beauty Bar offers a range of salon services including hairstyling and coloring, manicure and spa treatments, and haircuts for men, women, and children.
The beauty bar opened its door in a grand opening on July 25 and celebrated with a ribbon cutting on August 3.
Owner Cindy Boyd opened the salon on a leap of faith. She wanted to step out and do her own thing and take a path that allowed her to spend more time with her grandchildren. She also wanted to create a welcoming and safe environment for her patrons.
For many people, their hair and appearance are special to them, and they don’t trust just anyone to do it. Boyd understands this, and she wanted to create a place where they trusted they would get a job well done. “[I wanted] people to have somewhere to come where they felt comfortable getting their hair done,” Boyd said. In return, the community has opened up its arms to create a welcoming environment for the new blossoming business as well. Boyd said the most surprising part of opening the salon so far has been, “The support of the community, following us on our journey.”
Alyson Burch is a stylist at True Roots, and she can already feel the comforting environment that Boyd set out to create. Stylists and clients alike feel welcome in the space.
“It’s peaceful, relaxing, and it makes everyone excited to come into work!” Burch said. “Our clients also love the calm and inviting atmosphere.”
Boyd hopes that in the long term, the business will be prosperous, and hopes to one day expand the salon.
“This has just been a dream for myself and everyone with me. And it makes me feel good knowing I can help their dream as well as mine,” she said.
True Roots Beauty Bar is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. Walk ins and appointments are accepted. Call at (276) 622-2944.
