If you haven’t visited Aeracura Salon yet, this spring is the perfect time to do so. Since opening its doors in Reynolda Village in 2015, the salon has made a name for itself in the Winston-Salem community thanks to its passionate and knowledgeable stylists, its natural and environmentally friendly products, and its inviting, peaceful atmosphere. Should you decide to drop in while shopping or enjoying the gardens at Reynolda Village, the first things you’ll notice upon entering the salon are the large windows and the flood of natural light that fills the space long into the day. Aeracura is not just a place to have your hair done – it is also a peaceful getaway.
Christi Bradham, the salon’s owner, is excited about all that is happening at Aeracua this spring. “We recently finished construction to add additional styling stations, and our team has also grown dramatically,” said Christi. One of those new team members is acclaimed and world-renowned stylist Acacio Da Silva, who has an impressive resume including work for television commercials and music videos, as well as a variety of international and national fashion magazines. Acacio’s expertise includes cutting, styling, coloring, and hair design, and he has experience with photo shoots, events, television, and film. The stylist studied in Paris and London and had his work featured in publications such as Vanity Fair, InStyle, Vogue, and more. “We feel very fortunate to have someone of Acacio’s caliber and experience working with us at Aeracura,” said Christi.
Spring also means the start of wedding season, and Aeracura has something new and exciting in store for brides, as well. “We know brides have plenty to coordinate on their big day, so we wanted to do something to make things a little easier for them,” Christi said. From that sense of concern for brides, the Aeracura bridal team was born. The bridal team is ready and willing to accommodate brides and bridesmaids at the salon or on site at any location. They have recently released a variety of bridal packages for any budget, and are continuously updating their menu. In addition to bridal and bridesmaids’ hair and makeup, packages also include manicures and pedicures, facials, waxing, and a trial run, so you’ll know exactly how your hair will look in advance of the big day.
By booking a bridal package with Aeracura, you can rest assured that your hair and makeup, as well as your bridesmaids’, will be customized to your tastes and handled professionally. Most importantly – as decisions around hair and makeup are sometimes one of the biggest stressors for brides – purchasing a bridal package helps you check one important task off your list, knowing that you’ll have expert guidance and care every step of the way.
When Christi thinks back to Aeracura’s grand opening in 2015, she can hardly believe the incredible growth she and her team have experienced in such a short time. “I feel so fortunate to be part of this, and to have the support of our wonderful community,” Christi said. “We look forward to what’s next as we continue following our passion – to create an exceptional, refreshing experience for our clients each and every time they walk through our doors.”
