Those looking to try a new style have a new opportunity with Enchanted Roots Beauty Studio in Clanton.

Owner Kayla Forbach said she chose the name because she “wanted something different” to reflect that “we are definitely not like any other salon.”

Some of the salon’s specialties include blonding and hair color, body waxing, makeup, microblading and lash extensions.

The salon also does men’s haircuts.

For Forbach, her favorite thing is “total transformations, taking someone from one look to something completely opposite, such as the unicorn colors, just making people feel good about themselves.”

“I have some people come in who have never had their hair done professionally … some have had bad experiences, and I always try to listen to them and see just exactly what they want,” Forbach said.

Forbach has nearly a decade of experience in the salon industry, having worked for other salons and out of her home prior to opening Enchanted Roots Beauty Studio. She decided to establish a salon in September 2022. A location in Clanton was chosen, and renovations of the space took a month of long hours.

“This was like a three-month project we crammed into one month,” Forbach said.

The beauty studio opened in late December 2022. The owner said the community response has been good with customers enjoying the open atmosphere of the space.

Forbach said she enjoys “the freedom of having my own schedule” and being able to run things in a way that supports the best experience for the client as well as the stylist.

She wants everyone to feel comfortable coming to Enchanted Roots.

“You don’t have to be a certain way and you definitely don’t have to be a certain type of person to come in here,” Forbach said. “We have clients of all ages, shapes and sizes.”

A small boutique within the beauty studio features shirts, jewelry and specialty items.

Forbach makes jewelry featuring shed snake skins in the design.

Future plans for the business include adding stylists.

Enchanted Roots Beauty Studio is located at 1610 Seventh Street North in Clanton. For information about appointments and hours when walk-ins are accepted, visit the Enchanted Roots Beauty Studio Facebook page.
