Salon and day spa opens in historic Newton home


NEWTON, N.C. – Newton welcomed The Abbey Salon and Day Spa with a ribbon cutting ceremony Tuesday, Aug. 4.

The Abbey Salon and Day Spa focuses on holistic health, beauty and wellness services. Located at 1830 North Main Ave., the interior of the historic home, which was built in 1929, is decorated with a vintage seashore theme. The large welcoming porch, high ceilings, soothing colors and large windows allow natural light to stream throughout the house.

Owner and Newton native Amy Elder said she chose every detail to create a calming atmosphere for her clients. “I’ve wanted to do this my whole life,” she said.

The Abbey provides hair styling, facials, aromatherapy, makeup application and more. An array of facial and skin treatment packages are available. Clients can spend an hour or a day.

The Abbey will also offer wedding and special event planning, as well as a room for small gatherings, luncheons, tea and showers.
