Chelsea and Vivian are as good as what they do as they are sweet and beautiful inside and out. If you want to get the pampering that you deserve this is the place to be. I highly recommend them!

 I took my daughter in for her first ever eyebrow wax and Chelsea was so amazing with her! She felt like a whole new girl walking out of there. smile emoticon I also loved my experience with Chelsea and she was able to do exactly as I wanted with my eyebrow wax! Highly suggest going to see her for your skin care needs!
