Astonishing Beauty Service with Every Visit. Note from Grand Owner Carmen

MYSTERIES, YES

Truly, we live with mysteries too marvelous
to be understood.
How grass can be nourishing in the
mouths of the lambs.
How rivers and stones are forever
in allegiance with gravity
while we ourselves dream of rising.
How two hands touch and the bonds
will never be broken.
How people come, from delight or the
scars of damage,
to the comfort of a poem.
Let me keep my distance, always, from those
who think they have the answers.
Let me keep company always with those who say
“Look!” and laugh in astonishment,
and bow their heads.
-Mary Oliver
Poem “Evidence”

Grand Beauty Spa & Salon Highlights

So many wonderful things happened this year. We sometimes forget to celebrate our accomplishments but boy here are just a few Grand Beauty Spa & Salon highlights:

We updated, painted but most of all invested in our employees with the best education offered in the country.

We brought in Daniel Jones for motivation, Jo Blackwell-Preston for a color and highlighting class and even invested in the front desk doctor to improve our service at the front reception and salon spa.

Choose Love this Valentines Day – Note from Carmen

“Choose Love” I love this theme..

Carmen Sargeant | Grand Beauty Spa ownerWe have to choose to make things exciting in our relationships and Valentines Day gives us the perfect opportunity.

When’s the last time you surprised your spouse or partner with something a little sexy? Or planned something romantic and unexpected?

A big part of that feeling sexy for a woman is how she feels about herself. Hair and makeup can bring out that sexy in every woman.

In our Grand salon we have the sexiest blow dry that will last all weekend […]
