Natural Alternatives to open


Natural Alternatives, an Aveda spa and salon store, will be opening in Renaissance | Farragut in little more than a month.

The combination spa, salon and retailer will offer shoppers the chance to purchase Aveda products and receive salon and spa services. Owner Sandy Hampton hopes to have the Renaissance location of Natural Alternatives open by May 1 in the space formerly occupied by BellaSpazio.

“Massage is really popular, and we have pedicures, manicures, and they are all performed with Aveda products,” Hampton said.

Aveda is a skin- and hair-care product line globally-known for its “green” qualities.

“Aveda products are organically produced; all the products are plant derivative, from organically-grown, sustainably harvested plants.

“They’re very healthy for the environment and for our bodies,” Hampton said.


“I know a lot of people are really into organic, but Aveda’s always been that way and that’s what we’ve always used, from the environmental and health aspect,” he added.

“Since we’re in the spa business, we’re also in the business of helping people stay well. You can’t stay well if you’re using petroleum-derived chemicals,” Hampton said.

In addition to traditional spa and salon services ranging from massages, mani/pedis and facials, Natural Alternatives offers a full male product and services line.

“We have a large male clientele for skincare. Aveda has a full men’s line,” Hampton said.

The move to Farragut comes after increased demand at Natural Alternative’s other locations, particularly its locale in Turkey Creek.

“Our Turkey Creek location is just well received, and particularly for spa services,” Hampton said.

However, space constraints there mean the business is more set up for retail and salon services, so she wanted a nearby location with more room for spa services.

“It’s a high walk-in retail store and a very, very busy hair salon … we are always missing opportunities to serve, we just get booked up,” she added.

“This beautiful space opened up … that puts a whole beautiful spa really close to the people we’re serving anyway,” Hampton said.

While the location will have a hair salon, emphasis will be on the spa.

“This place is just set up perfectly for what we’ve been challenged a bit with at the Turkey Creek location,” Hampton said.

Hampton owns other Knoxville locations, in Western Plaza, West Town Mall and in Turkey Creek; she opened her first location in 1992.
