In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, we often forget to pamper our feet, the unsung heroes that support us every step of the way. Enter the world of pedicures – a delightful blend of relaxation, self-care, and rejuvenation for your tired and often-neglected feet. In this blog post, we'll explore the myriad benefits of professional pedicures, beyond just the aesthetic appeal, to unveil the secrets of healthy, happy feet.
Foot Health Matters
Let's start with the most fundamental aspect – foot health. Professional pedicures are not just about pretty nails; they are a holistic approach to maintaining the health of your feet. Trained pedicurists can identify and address common foot issues such as ingrown toenails, calluses, and fungal infections, preventing potential discomfort and complications.
Relaxation and Stress Relief

The Glo Skincare line is very popular and contains many fan favorite products. Their skincare is carefully crafted to ensure that only the best ingredients are used to make their products. All Glo products are made with ethically and sustainably sourced ingredients that are the best for your skin and the environment. One of our recent fan favorite Glo products is the Bio-Renew EGF Cream. This product is an advanced reparative moisturizer that hydrates, smooths, and rejuvenates the skin. The Bio-Renew EGF Cream helps promote cellular renewal and support the barrier strength for a radiant, restored complexion.
EGF is short for Epidermal Growth Factor, and it is the ultimate reparative ingredient in skincare. Discovered only 30 years ago, it was the first growth factor to be studied for use in skincare. EGF is a protein that is naturally found in our skin and provides healing benefits. It stimulates the fibroblasts in our skin which produce collagen and elastin to clarify, thicken, and tighten skin.

Have you ever heard of an eyelash lift and tint? Sometimes referred to as an eyelash “perm”, an eyelash lift and tint accentuates your natural beauty by darkening and lifting your eyelashes. The results from an eyelash lift and tint are immediate and dramatic, and last anywhere between two to three months.
During this service, your lashes are adhered to a silicone rod and solution is applied to permanently curl them upwards. Next, your esthetician will apply the lash tint and let it sit until the color has absorbed into your lashes. This service is perfect for anyone who is looking to emphasize their eyes and make their morning routine a little bit easier. It is also ideal for someone who spends lots of time swimming in the summer. No more worrying about mascara running!
Our estheticians recommend pairing this service with an eyebrow tint to help frame your face and give a more dramatic look. They also recommend using a lash growth serum to help your lashes grow longer, which accentuates the eyes even more! Call today to book your lash lift...more

Reiki is a form of energy healing that involves the use of light and gentle hand movements placed at different points above the body, without touching, to encourage self-healing. Created in the 1920s by Mikao Usui in Japan, Reiki was used as an alternative therapy for the treatment of physical, emotional, and mental diseases.
Reiki is a safe service for most individuals regardless of age or state of health. Results will vary for each individual. Common results include a deep relaxation, ease of tension, better sleep, pain relief, and improved mood.
One of our massage therapists, Sherri, is a Reiki Master and suggests pairing Reiki with a massage for increased relaxation and benefits.

Permanent eyelash extensions provide a beautiful natural look of flawless, thick and long lashes, without the need for mascara. They can last up to two to three weeks after application or a fill. As always, the key to lasting results is proper home care. To get the most of each eyelash extension fill, we recommend using the LLBA Coating Sealant.
The LLBA Coating Sealant is specifically formulated to improve the longevity of lash extensions. It does this by protecting your lashes from dust, oils, and products that may break down the lash adhesive. The sealant locks the extension in place, keeping your lashes looking great for weeks.
Heather, one of our lash technicians, recommends applying this product daily after you shower or clean your lashes. This product can be used year round, but especially when you are in humid climates, or if you are sweating, swimming, or have oily skin. Heather suggests pairing this product with the LLBA Lash Bath Cleanser to ensure that lashes are clean and ready for application of the sealant. Come stop in today and...more

A good dry shampoo can go a long way. Unfortunately, most drugstore dry shampoos make your scalp feel chalky and leave a stubborn white residue. Fear not, we have the solution! The Berlin Dry Shampoo by Pulpriot is what you’ve been looking for.
The Berlin Dry Shampoo is lightweight and leaves your hair looking clean and refreshed. It is a great product for people who go a few days between washes. Unlike most of its competitors, this dry shampoo does not leave a stark white residue. One of our stylists, Skylir, recommends applying it to clean, dry hair. Dry shampoo works by absorbing the oil that your scalp produces. This method of application prevents the oil from absorbing into your hair in the first place.
After applying the product, Skylir recommends using the blow dryer at your roots for a few seconds. This helps evenly distribute the product and get rid of any residue.
