Two businesses, one space

Belle Therapy+Wellness, Dragonfly Lactation, serve local women

Two businesses are sharing space to serve the area’s women.

Ally Capps, physical therapist/owner of Belle Therapy + Wellness, a concierge service, and Melanie Kondrat, owner of Dragonfly Lactation, recently opened their businesses at 10805 Kingston Pike Suite 100, next to Costco.

“It’s great,” they both said about opening.

“We have a lot of people stop in just to say ‘hi’ and see what’s going on in here,” Kondrat said. “They see us and look at Costco.”

“We’re here to celebrate Belle Therapy + Wellness,” Farragut West Knox Chamber of Commerce president/CEO Julie Blaylock said during an FWKCC-sponsored ribbon cutting Tuesday, Nov. 28, at the business.

Capps, a pelvic floor specialist, works primarily with women, especially in the pregnancy and post-partum realm.

Partners Greer, Wilson open Pure Beauty Salon

Natasha Greer and Bonnie Wilson recently have partnered to open Pure Beauty Salon Studio in Renaissance | Farragut, 12748 Kingston Pike, Suite 101.

“We’re super excited about being here,” Greer said. “It’s super nice. All the people at the Renaissance have been super friendly. It kind of feels like a little neighborhood, really.”

Greer, a Greenback resident, and Wilson, a Loudon resident, provide any kind of hair service — cuts, color and keratin treatments — as well as facial waxing.

Greer has been a hair stylist since 2007.

“I knew that this is what I wanted to do, I think, since when I was in the sixth grade,” she said. “I graduated high school early and started beauty school right away.”

“It’s what I’ve always done,” said Wilson, who has been in the hair styling business for 20 years. “I’ve always loved being at a salon, so it’s always what I wanted to do.”

Like Greer, Wilson went to beauty school right after high school because that was her calling.

Working alongside Greer “is great,” Wilson said. “She’s very easy to work with.”
