Amy Lavender and Chrissy Barney welcome you to The Village Salon & Butterfly Kisses Day Spa.
Fall is here! The Village Salon & Butterfly Kisses Day Spa has a lot going on to celebrate the season during the month of November. “Now is a great opportunity to change your hairstyle to include fall colors,” says Amy Lavender, stylist. “It’s time to lose those summer ponytails and get back to layers and bobs. Nothing looks better with your accessory scarves and boots than a cropped, layered look with copper and blonde highlights.”
November also marks the one-year anniversary of The Village Salon’s new ownership. Chrissy Barney, owner and stylist, and Amy are looking forward to celebrating by offering their clients specials throughout the month. “Our specials will include up to three colors, a cut and style,” says Amy. The salon, located near Cato at 614 S. Lynn Riggs Blvd., offers many hair care products to help you achieve your new look. “We would also love to help style your hair,” adds Amy.
The salon recently began offering contour full body wraps by M’lis. The M’lis Contour Body Wrap cream helps achieve a healthy and permanent loss of 4 to 14 inches, while maintaining proper hydration. Chrissy, who emphasizes that this is not a water loss wrap, became interested in the holistic approach that gets rid of the toxins in your body after losing her father to cancer several years ago. “My mother is also suffering from Alzheimer’s and I realized that if I wanted to be around to see my three daughters grow up, I needed to take better care of myself,” she says. “It was an awakening for me. I like the product because it works from the inside out, leaving you energetic.”
Wraps also help to remove cellulite by targeting and removing the toxins trapped in the connective tissue, then soothing, healing and stimulating tissue growth, increasing skin elasticity and improving the skin’s firmness. To maintain the benefits of the body wrap, you must stay well hydrated, eat a healthy diet and exercise. “Fall is a great time to get ready for all the holiday parties with a toned new body, feeling refreshed and losing inches,” adds Chrissy.
The Village Salon carries a wide variety of products, including Matrix, Chi, Aquage, Redken and Pureology. In addition, the salon offers full hair care, facials, manicures and pedicures, eyelash extensions and facial waxing. “Eyebrow waxing is always $5,” says Amy.
You can also begin your holiday shopping at the salon. They carry Thirty-One bags and totes, jewelry, bows, clothing and other nice gift items. “You can shop before or after your pampering,” Amy adds.
On Thursday, November 14, the salon will be hosting an open house from 5 to 8 p.m. Door prizes will be given away and product demonstrations, from facials to hair care, will be offered.
The Village Salon & Butterfly Kisses is open Monday through Saturday and offers early and late appointments. Walk-ins, including men, women and children, are always welcome. Chrissy and Amy look forward to giving their clients the royal makeover for the holidays. “We want to pamper you and help you look and feel your best,” says Chrissy.
