Gratitude and the Holiday Season – Notes from Carmen

Carmen | Grand Beauty Spa OwnerHello Grand Beauties, We are so looking forward to the upcoming season of the holidays.

Gratitude seems to be a great theme this year as it’s been a pretty tough year for most. I think we all have to accept that it’s a different world now and we have to be more mindful of our choices.

Some say they can’t wait till 2017 is over, but for me I have learned some of the biggest lessons of my life in 2017. For example, I learned silence this year. To […]

September Note from Carmen

Carmen - Grand Beauty Spa OwnerWonderful blessings are ahead… We have to trust.

Hello Grand beauties!

What a horrific time we have all had to endure with Hurricane Irma and now family and friends have been devastated by Hurricane Maria.

I know I have had my own thoughts asking myself what if?

But I always go back to we must trust that we are going to be Ok and it’s all part of the master plan or simply how the Universe works.

With so many lives affected it will take time to get things back to feeling […]

It’s time to create self love and renewal

Hello Grand Beauties!

Carmen - Grand Beauty Spa OwnerIt’s time to create self love and renewal

So far in life I have found that it’s a constant thing we have to stay on top of, like those extra 10 pounds that always comes back. So we find ourselves looking for that magic remedy. I have even found myself skipping my weekly Grand treatments because of the challenges of balancing work, family, and responsibilities and I own a Spa…

While at my sons Lacrosse tournament in Baltimore last month I was spontaneously invited by one […]

Note from Carmen…Enjoy the Moment

Life is a journey not a destination,
Enjoy the moment.

Hello Grand Beauties.

I love this quote. It still amazes me how many of our guest haven’t even notice the etching on our fireplace. For me this reminds me to slow down, stop and smell the roses and enjoy every little or large moment in life. There is so much awe in our every day life if we choose to see.

Enjoying the simplistic things in life and
noticing the moments in stillness.

So, I challenge you to take charge and begin to slow your life down just a little […]

10 Fabulous Grand Years!

Happy 10th Anniversary Grand Beauty Spa….!Carmen - Grand Beauty Spa Owner

The Grand opened it’s doors April 17th 2007. I’ll never forget trying to ignore the music skipping, while being interrupted by the city inspectors and contractors who were still finishing up the punch list. I was working on my wonderful clients who for the last decade supported every thing I have created. I am humbled and truly blessed.

I love what The Grand represents

A place where employees can come to create the most professional career path in the beauty industry. A silver platter […]

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.

Let’s not forget about attending Thalgo’s world wide beauty tour in France.

Teaching haircuts for Shu Uemura in NYC was a dream come true […]
