Therapeutic Massage ~ Kneads for EveryBODY

The Avenue Salon and Spa

 Waiting Room at The Avenue

The Avenue Salon and Spa is owned by Susie Minton and Crystal Chandler. The mother-daughter duo has been in business together for almost 25 years.  Before moving to their current location at 697 Pennton Avenue SW in Lenoir, their business was known as The Hair Connection.  When they purchased their current location in May of 2011 they decided it was time for a name change and change of venue – thus The Avenue Salon and Spa was born.

The Avenue Salon and Spa offers a wide variety of services that fit the needs of the entire family. The salon has five hairstylists and a massage therapist.  Brenda Gore, a hair stylist for approximately 36 years, has worked with Susie and Crystal for approximately eight years. Erin Hamby, has been a hairstylist for approximately three years and joined the ladies in July of 2011.  Erin also does manicures and pedicures. Taylor Chandler, the newest member of the group joined the staff in 2016. Taylor like Erin is a hairstylist and also does manicures and pedicures. Jerri McNiel, licensed massage and bodywork therapist since 2009, joined the group in May of 2011.

Each of the ladies are independent contractors bringing their own unique talents together to meet the individual needs of each of their clients.  Besides wet and dry haircuts for all ages they also do perms, color, foils and special occasion up-dos, manicures, pedicures and brow and lip waxing.
