Temptations Salon & Boutique, located on Keavy Road, hosted it’s re-grand opening ceremony last week, to celebrate it’s first ever expansion.
Temptations, which has been located on Keavy Road for over twelve years, has expanded to incorporate a barber parlor onto the existing salon.
The salon and boutique owner and head hairstylist, Keith London, has been in the hair industry for 19 years, and is excited to be offering brand new services to new and existing clients.
“I felt with the barber school being here in London, this salon would be another place for them to work after they graduated, plus with the current clientele I have, their husbands and sons go to barbers – so it works out pretty cool,” said London.
London said because of the expansion, he has been able to hire three new barbers.
Along with the services previously offered, Temptations is now offering airbrush make-up that lasts up to twenty hours. Also offered are men’s straight razor shaves and latest cuts and razors, spa hydro massage bed, and spa pedicures and manicures.
“I really hope that everyone comes to check us out. Thanks to this expansion, we will be able to cater to a whole new client base, and we look forward to being able to cater to new customers with different needs,” says London.
Temptations is located at 474 Keavy Road. To set up an appointment, call 606-862-9230.

An anonymous tip that meth was being cooked at a Bowling Street home in Manchester led to three arrests Tuesday.
An unknown caller phoned Kentucky State Police Post 11 in London to complain about an ether-like odor issuing from a residence.
KSP Trooper Josh Wilson went to investigate at the residence and noticed a strong ether-like odor. After knocking on the door, he says a woman answered it and the smell became noticeably stronger.
Wilson says that Brenda Wagers, 40, was in a utility room in the house. When she opened the door to exit the room, a fog of smoke bellowed out.
Wilson evacuated the people from the house. With help from the Clay County Sheriff’s Office and the Manchester City Police, the house was searched. Manchester Police Officer Jason Combs discovered a one-step active methamphetamine lab in the utility room, which was being cooked inside a mason jar.
Trooper Wilson explains that the chemical reaction that occurs in the manufacturing of meth creates oxygen. When manufactured in a plastic container, the plastic either melts or expands.
“Glass cannot expand, so when the oxygen levels build, it can only explode, sending shrapnel everywhere,” said Wilson. The area around the home was evacuated until Officer Combs could disassemble the lab.
Terry Bowling, 45, Gary D. Bowling, 21, and Brenda Wagers, 40, were all charged with manufacturing methamphetamine.
The three had to be decontaminated at the scene before being taken to the Clay County Detention Center.
Trooper Wilson is in charge of the investigation. He was assisted by Manchester Police Department, Clay County Sheriff’s Office, and the Manchester Fire Department.
