The Edge Salon has announced the opening of a new Brentwood location in early 2007. The new salon will be located at 7028 Church Street, suite 104, just off Franklin Road in Brentwood. 

Owners Charles Scarbro and Bill Vandiver said they felt a second location was necessary to keep up with their steadily increasing clientèle.

"We've experienced a great deal of growth and wanted to expand our service area," Scarbro commented. "We simply wanted to spread ourselves out more and offer our clients more options and convenience."

And they quite literally will be spreading themselves out to meet those needs. There are currently no plans to hire any new stylists for the Brentwood salon. Current employees will work rotating shifts at each salon on different days of the week allowing clients the option to visit their favorite stylist at the location most convenient for them.

Scarbro says the new salon in Brentwood will have a similar look and feel to the current salon in Belle Meade utilizing '40s era movie stars, Elivs Presley and Marilyn Monroe as inspiration points for the interior design.

All services currently available at the Belle Meade salon will be available at the new Brentwood location. A grand opening celebration with celebrity guests is planned for the first week of February 2007.

Often, these resolutions are vague, like “lose weight” or “exercise more”, and way too often they begin with a gym contract and end with Netflix and a bag of takeout. Getting specific can help in holding yourself accountable for these commitments, though. So we thought it might be interesting to talk with a local gay trainer, James Mai, about his fitness journey, his work as a trainer and how he keeps himself motivated, and get some of his suggestions for carrying through on this year’s fitness resolutions!
