Above pix taken August 14, 2008 at the
Permanet Solutions Salon owned and
operated by Jennifer Johnson at 2157 Beaver Road in the Gulledge community about
7 miles or so South of Wadesboro, NC off highway 109 South with a few turns to
get you there. This is a very unique salon that has recycled
timber/wood from the old Little Cotton Manufacturing Co., Inc. in Wadesboro, NC that was torn down
several years back. Jennifer's husband Jimmy obtained the wood and
resurfaced it himself along with some of the front cedar timbers used on the
porch main supports of which he logged the timber himself being in the logging
business. Permanet Solutions Salon was opened at this location on March 5,
2007 and I will take you on a pictorial essay whereas my bride and myself have
been using Jennifer's talent for several years now.
In front of the Permanet Solutions Salon is a beautiful vinyl and wooden sign adjacent
the entrance road to the parking lot and you know you are at the right place.
As you enter the porch area you will notice a very catchy overhead sign which
sums your visit up very quickly.
Today my bride and myself were greeted first by "Twig" a young
pup that enjoys a little extra attention if nothing more than a simple
"hey boy, you flea bag",
but he will not let you get off so lightly most of the time. Pix of Mr.
Twig wagging his tail.
Camera angle "compressed" Mr.
Jennifer Johnson quickly responded with a friendly "Hey Yawl" greeting with a
bit of Southern drawl/accent in her voice and I will tell you a little about
Jennifer. She has an outstanding personality and well versed
on many subjects and in her own words, "this is the
type of work I have always wanted to do." But first,
let me insert a pix of Jennifer doing what she likes to do best: Seated in
the chair is Tyler Chewning. Jennifer is a country "girl"
all the way yet ritzy and upscale when the need
arises. Ok, I could just have easily said luxurious, glamorous,
grand or elegant
instead of ritzy for you Reader's Digest groupies; grin if you must!
Jennifer is originally from Burnsville, NC and attended the Carolina Beauty
College starting June 10, 1993 that was located in Monroe, NC and is now the
Regina Beauty College and I believe she graduated May 18, 1994 and worked for
nearly 10 years in Fountain Hill, NC and later opened Permanet Solutions Salon in
Casons Old Field in 2004 and stayed there for about 4 years. It is there
where my "bride" Joyce Porter met her and using her services
ever since. Jennifer is definitely a magician in addition to
being an expert beautician as I have
personally witnessed the transformation of most of her clients and
can only presume she has some type of secret magical potent or formula
because a mere mortal cannot do those things so well and quickly. While waiting for my bride,
I sometimes pick my Dobro aka resophonic guitar; it is amazing at the
cross talk one can pick up while picking and grinning with the ole
Dobro guitar. If Jennifer ever ops for another profession, she already has
the experience of a Psychiatrist with all the things being voiced out
by her clients while doing her magic;
sort of like being a bar tender without the alcohol and shot glasses and with the
leather couch whereas she uses combs, scissors, rollers, hair dryers and many
other tools of the trade; nevertheless a very excellent opportunity to become
a trusted listener; ladies, ok men too, just don't talk too loud over the
noise level of the hair dryer. It must have
something to do with the chair and that certainly could be part of the magic
I eluded to. She has tanning beds as well but did not
venture into those areas; I don't have immediate access to nitroglycerin pills!
One thing you will notice upon entering her salon is the warm
and relaxed atmosphere and the perceptible welcome feeling along with an ever changing
to match the seasonal holidays and artistic displays she uses to promote her
beauty products and accessories. Her salon has plenty of
mirrors and I tried to take advantage of the mirror reflections to make you
think I knew what I was doing with the little digital camera....go ahead
and grin if you must. There are several custom hand made mirror frames by Randy
and Jason Steele featuring weather beaten rustic looking wood that goes
very well with the wood scheme pattern of the salon. The solid wood
interior walls have a diagonal pattern at different locations breaking up the
horizontal and vertical wood orientation for additional eye appeal, interest and
natural beauty. I will insert
thumbnail pixs from here on out and simply click the thumbnails for a larger
Maverlee, Jennifer's daughter is 5 years old and attends Jesus Lord
Christian School in Cheraw, SC and is in the Kinder Garden class. Maverlee
is an added bonus to the salon and will keep you entertained with her collection
of toys and art work in progress and will insert pix.
That hour or so at Permanet Solutions Salon today went by very fast and had a
chance to get my hair cut as well. My bride and myself always leave
Jennifer's place in a very relaxed state of mind which can be attributed to the
surroundings where Friendship and Fellowship abounds.
Before leaving, Jill Trammell came in for her regular hair appointment and
I forgot to take a pix of her and will blame it on it that CRS disease;
can't remember sometimes.
Give Jennifer a call at 704-694-0103 and visit her salon and you certainly will not be
