Business Spotlight: A cut above

 A new salon is coming to downtown Brandenburg, and owner Penelope Fountain is excited to become a part of the community.

 Vintage Salon, located at 240 Main Street in downtown Brandenburg, is a business that Fountain hopes to shape into a family atmosphere for her customers.

 Penelope is originally from Georgia, and she’s been doing hair for 11 years. Her husband is the project superintendent of a construction company building Nucor, so they’ve relocated to Brandenburg for the duration of the project. She says they were impressed with how kind the community is here.

 “People are so friendly, it reminded us of the people in Georgia,” said Fountain.

 She says that working with hair is her passion.

 “I feel like, if you do what you love, you never work a day in your life,” Fountain said. “I just always knew I wanted to do it. I’m very much a people person. I love talking, laughing and meeting new people. It’s honestly not like work; I love it.”

 Fountain has had customers drive up to five hours in order to get her services, and she says that at least one of her patrons plans on making the long haul from Florida to Brandenburg to do just that.

 Prices will be comparable to other local salons, according to Fountain. A full highlight can range anywhere from $95 to $110, depending on length. Men’s haircuts will cost $15, and a dry cut for women starts at $18.

The salon will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. However, Fountain says that she’s happy to stay later occasionally to meet the needs of the customer.

 Not only will patrons be able to get their hair cut and styled, they’ll also be able to get a spray tan, get their nails done, and even get henna brows.

 To book an appointment, call 270-422-CURL, or reach Fountain on her cell phone at 229-977-1110.
