Our Mission

Staff members provide all hair services, waxing, makeup and hair treatments in private suites. Completely private hair suites are designed for relaxing while receiving all hair services and are especially appreciated for hair loss consultations. We specialize in Human Hair wigs, clip-in hair pieces, extensions and wearable hair for those who prefer to have a natural head of hair 24/7. 

Our team is certified in many techniques and work with women experiencing alopecia, effluvium and many other conditions where hair is thinning or complete hair loss.

Our Story

Garde Bien opened in 2000; after years of success owner Stacey Handel moved Garde Bien to its current permanent location in 2011. Our boutique setting is perfect for every client to relax and to give our full attention.  We have a commitment of quality and comfort as well as our commitment to community and charity organizations; East Tennessee Children’s Hospital -“Dancing with the Knoxville Stars” and The Susan G. Komen – “Cuts for the Cure” are two we are passionate about.

Our NEW Garde Bien SpaSalon is a collection of experienced professionals offering medi-spa and salon services.  Years of experience does make a difference in the overall quality of service and result.   Owners’ spaces and Garde Bien staff make up the select group of professionals. Each staff member has individual work hours and offer appointments according to their availability.  Scheduling in advance works best to secure an appointment.
