Hair, nail salon experience gets modern at Hairbar

MILLEDGEVILLE — Since May, Milledgeville native Amber Simmons’ passion for all things beauty has transformed and pampered clients from head to toe at her very own salon. The space was formerly known as ExtraordiNailry Salon & Spa in downtown Milledgeville.

“Growing up as a little girl, I always had an interest for hair and nails; it’s something I always wanted to do,” she said Thursday after shampooing a client’s hair. “I worked in another local salon for 10 years before opening Hairbar. As women, whether we are hard working students, career women, mothers, sisters or friends, we all enjoy getting together and unwinding with our friends. It was those thoughts that brought me to thinking about Hair Bar —  a place to make a woman feel relaxed and beautiful.”

The two-story salon offers a wide range of hair services, facial waxing and a full-service nail salon, including manicures and pedicures, for women, men and children. Reservations can be made for groups of various social gatherings and parties to have a private salon experience.

“We specialize in color as well as blow outs. We offer blow out parties for groups where we can make blow outs last four to five days as opposed to what you can do at home,” Simmons said. “After we shampoo and condition hair, we section out the hair into small sections so the hair has more body, shine and it lasts longer; it’s a quick service with less maintenance on your hair.”

Salon manager Kelly Smith enjoys having new customers return for their hair and nail needs.

“I love our clients and the loyalty they have,” she said. “We have a number of college students who just continue returning because our location is so convenient where students don’t have to drive.”

Leanna Peters, a nail tech, has been with salon on and off for the past three years prior to it transforming into Hairbar.
