Do you ever have trouble finding a hair stylist when you’ve just moved into a new area? I always struggle with that. After moving back to Murphy and, after a few bad haircuts, my husband suggested I try Infinity the Salon and Spa at 308 Hill St. in Murphy because he thought it looked like a place I would like. And boy was he right! Let me introduce you to her… or better yet, I’ll let her introduce herself. So here, in her own words, I give you Darcy Bristol!
How long have you been in business in Murphy?
We have been in business for nine years. I was involved in another salon here in Murphy, when I stumbled on the beautiful gem that is now known as Infinity. It was a lonely brick home in need of some serious love and TLC. After a few months and an extensive renovation, we opened for business in April of 2007.
Why did you choose this line of work and what background/education do you have?
After I was graduated from high school I moved to Gainesville, Florida and completed a cosmetology program at Santa Fe Community College in 1996. I worked at an amazing salon in Gainesville for a year under the tutelage of an educator for Rusk, Toni and Guy, and Paul Mitchell. My mentor, Carl Galombos, gave me the confidence and skills to succeed. He helped me to be able to create any vision my clients desired. There is no feeling better than the happiness that can be brought to someone by making them look AND feel good. I did try various jobs and career paths for a few years; construction, the food industry, car sales, none of which filled in me the desire to help people. In 2006 I decided to expand my breadth of knowledge and went to massage therapy school in Cleveland, Tennessee. I completed the program with high honors and a love for bodywork. Again, making people feel good has become my passion. It has been said if you truly love what you do, you never work a day in your life!
What brought you to Murphy?
I came to Murphy to visit in 1996. My parents had purchased a home here after leaving the Florida Keys. My original impression was the beauty. I’ll never forget the time I stepped out onto their deck and took in the view. The lake nestled into the backdrop of the mountains with the mist lifting into the air after a rainstorm took my breath away. This place is absolutely gorgeous. It is small and quaint and peaceful. It is this that I took back to Gainesville after my first visit. I couldn’t escape the fact that these mountains were “calling” to me. I moved here permanently a year later.
