Why a motorcycle as the lead picture for a blog on the 10th anniversary of a local salon? With good reason, since the inspiration and name for the salon “Magna’s – A Full Body Salon” came to Tom Hughes as he was riding his Honda Magna motorcycle in the days before opening (his current ride is pictured above). The Latin meaning for magna is large, great , powerful or mighty and Tom felt it captured the concept he had in mind for his salon and spa. Tom and his partner Stacye chose to match their decor with this theme and create a space that would appeal to both sexes. Hence the decor includes light hardwood floors, recessed lighting, earthtone colors, Roman style columns and a mixture of both masculine and feminine decorating. Tom and Stacye recently celebrated their 10th anniversary on Amelia Island and held an open house for clients and friends. We utilize Magna’s often for weddings and spa packages and Deborah has been the beneficiary of several of their relaxation packages on birthdays and anniversaries. It was a nice evening with the opportunity to meet their staff, visit with other locals and see the full range of the spa and salon at one time. Wine, beer and treats were available and enjoyed by all. It’s great to see local businesses succeed and we appreciate having the services available to provide for guests of the Williams House. Come to Amelia Island, stay at the Williams House and enjoy a trip to Magna’s! Our congratulations to Tom and Stacye and our hope for many more successful years here on Amelia Island!
