Changes and New Locations!

A Note from Alissa:

     Greetings and blessings to you all! This is a hard newsletter to put out there but The Water Lily will be closing at its current location. March 31st is our last day operating at 7 Beaverdam Rd. DON'T PANIC!! We are all still going to be doing your hair and waxing, just at different locations. If you have an appointment on the books after April 1st, just look at the following information to find out where you will be going.

Let it be known that this has not been without much thought and option exploring, but our lease is up and it's just time to make some changes. I am sooooo grateful for all of your support through the last 8 years, it's been a good run. I believe we have set a precedent of how a salon can be successful without the use of chemicals, and just an overall supportive vibe toward authentic beauty. We couldn't have done it with out you!! Thank you all!!

You are loved!!!!!

We all remain faithful to the organic way and will continue to offer ammonia-free organic color, as well as organic perms and products.

 THANK YOU .....and hope to see you at our new locations! --Alissa Neill

Like Us? Share some Virtual Love!

We admit it. We're a little technophobic around here at The Water Lily. But we realize that the internet is probably the second way people find out about us (besides you lovelies telling your friends, for which we'd love to say "thank you" by getting you started in our referral reward program-ask for details). 

YelpFacebook, and Google are all easy places to leave a review of your experience, and we greatly appreciate the time you take to write one.

A Quick Reminder About Cancellations


Just a little reminder of our cancellation policy: If you need to change or cancel an appointment, please call 828-505-3288 and we would be happy to accommodate!

 However, if you cancel within 24 hours of your appointment, or have a "no show" you will be charged a deposit of 50% of the cancelled/missed service when you rebook. This deposit will be applied to your future appointment. 

 A second cancellation/missed appointment will be charged a fee equal to 50% of the missed appointment, and none of that will be applied to the future appointment.

Of course, we understand that everyone experiences emergencies which, within reason, are exempt from any of these fees. Ultimately, we strive to work with you to give you the best possible service, and so if you have any questions or concerns at all, please don't hesitate to ask!
