Two gals, Gilda Santiago and Christine DiBenedetto – one east coast, one west, both with curly hair and a vision – came together to build a place that would use fashion and hair for good not evil. In March 2005, Wink, a hair salon in Asheville, NC was born.
We are dedicated hairstylists. We are the choice salons for the educated client. We know hair. We love hair. We are colorists who take our education seriously. We have fun doing all of this.
We are located in historic Biltmore Village, in Asheville, NC. (Wink’s salon has been voted BEST OF in the Mountain Xpress Readers Poll  2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 as well as Best in the Citizen-Times Readers Poll!)
