Healthy hair and providing her clients with the knowledge to care for it, that is Amina Dionne’s goal for Amina’s Hair & Beauty Salon located at 440 Spruce St. Spend just a few minutes talking with this business owner and you quickly realize that she has a great deal of knowledge when it comes to hair and skin care.

Born and raised in Charleston, Amina moved to Morgantown in 2017, leaving a career in healthcare behind to follow her passion. Her children were all students at WVU and she realized that Morgantown was missing a salon that focused on ethnic hair and skin care. In 2019 she decided to open her own full-service salon, where everyone is welcome. She wants to create a culture where you can be pampered and be able to afford it. In the coming weeks you will find even more services available when she begins to offer full-service facials and hydro masks!

Amina also works with the Human Resource Development Foundation, Inc. (HRDF), to mentor graduates from the cosmetology field in a stepping-stone program. HRDF “assists thousands of West Virginians through advocacy, empowerment, and the successful administration of a wide variety of employment, occupational skill training and educational programs.” She hopes that by working with this organization she can encourage others to stay in West Virginia, like she did.

Let Amina fill you in with her wisdom and take you on a hair care journey at her relaxing salon, that smells amazing, and is covered in beautiful murals. You can follow her on Facebook and Instagram and check out the website for a list of services.

Our next shout out on this beautiful sunny day in Morgantown is located at 107 High street, The Monongalia Arts Center.

Built between 1913 and 1915, the Old Morgantown Post Office features the Neoclassical style of architecture. The structure housed the Monongalia Arts Center since 1977, and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.

Due to the tripling of business at the Morgantown Post Office between 1903 and 1913, plans for a new building began. The New Post Office was completed over a two-year span at a cost of about $150,000, and was dedicated on November 2, 1914. Not only did this building house the Post Office but also housed other government offices such as the Internal Revenue Service Collector, government engineers’ offices, civil service department, and a National Red Cross Office.

The building is a great example of adaptive reuse in Morgantown. In 1973, the Post Office moved into its present facilities adjacent on High Street. Early in 1976, the Monongalia County Arts Center Association, Incorporated was created. In 1977, the Monongalia Arts Center opened in the revamped facility.

Check out this building and many more on our Historic Downtown Morgantown Audio Walking Tour!

Discover Downtown Today!

Welcome to Main Street Morgantown! Our beautiful city is home to over 30,000 people. Built on one of the strongest small metro economies (CNN Money), Morgantown boasts exciting opportunities for commerce, education, and residency. With abundant outdoors activities, a state of the art research institution, and a historic downtown filled with culinary experiences and shopping destinations, Morgantown is unparalleled. Nestled in the hills of northern West Virginia, Morgantown is conveniently located within a few hours of both Pittsburgh and Washington D.C., but is far enough removed to provide a relaxing and scenic ambiance.
