Affinity Salon set to style on Main Avenue
BY MICHAEL JOHNSON
Making someone feel beautiful is no easy task. Kelli Folk-Murrey, the new owner of the salon downtown in Washburn is ready for that task.
The sale of the business was final Aug. 30. It reopened as Affinity Salon Sept. 5 and has been open since.
"It felt like a good opportunity," Folk-Murrey said. "Washburn and the area is growing."
Folk-Murrey is a native of the Center-Stanton area, but has called Wilton home for the past three years.
Her experience in hair started about five years ago while working as a receptionist at Spa D’ Athena in Bismarck. She called it an early mid-life crisis. She would stare at the hair stylists doing their work on the many customers everyday and others finally talked her into taking up some scissors and learning the trade, too.
