michelleandfaith

We are excited to welcome both Michelle Hammett and Faith Lovelace to our spa family. Read all about our newest hair stylist and nail technician below:

Licensed Hair Stylist Michelle Hammett is a 2011 graduate of Jenny Lea Academy. Providing clients the service they deserve is her number one priority. She loves everything about hair and the beauty industry as a whole. Michelle enjoys creating beautiful custom colors for each client and finishing the look with a designer cut to compliment the color. She provides all custom color techniques including, but not limited to, balayage and foil placement. Michelle is excited to call Austin Springs Spa home, and she looks forward to sharing her passion with our clientele!

Faith Lovelace is a licensed nail technician and Jenny Lea Academy graduate. She received her license early, because she had perfect attendance for her entire enrollment period. We believe this dedication to her education sets her a part from the rest. Additionally, Faith won 3 out of 4 awards given out at graduation: one for perfect attendance and the second was for highest average in the nail program. The third award was for academic excellence for the following: professionalism, good attitude, and excellent workmanship during her time there. We look for Faith to excel at Austin Springs Spa, just as she did at Jenny Lea. Beyond her achievements in school, Faith has a love for her work that is unsurpassed by others. She looks forward to pampering and getting to know our guests!

Makeover Your Skin: Try Eminence Organics

Our staff could not be more excited to offer Eminence Organics in our retail boutique, as well as utilizing their products in our body and facial services. It’s rare that a company maintains safe practices, all the while offering organic products that work to heal and treat your skin. They provide an array of products for any skin type, as well as exfoliators and lotions for your body. Our clients and staff alike have already seen results in the short time we started partnering with Eminence, which is fantastic!

We all want to put our best face forward, but the key to having great skin is maintenance. While upkeep never sounds fun, our facial & body services are not only relaxing but beneficial as well. Additionally, your at-home skin care routine is what will really set you a part. Our Aestheticians will include product education during your service, but if you’re short on time and can only stop in to shop, our spa front desk can help direct you in choosing the specific Eminence line that will work best for you. Members of our Skin Team have given you suggestions below, in order to give you a head start on your new skin care journey.

“I think our Arctic Berry Peel Facial is fantastic! It includes a glycolic alternative that leaves your skin smooth, and the Peel Activator helps with inflammation and redness.” – Lead Aesthetician Teena Dixon

“I adore the Clear Skin Probiotic Masque! I sleep in it nightly and cant believe the difference it has made! ” –  Aesthetician Emily Taylor

“The Stone Crop Collection is my favorite! It works well with for my skin type and helps hydrate and correct my subtle signs of sun damage, without being too harsh. This collection is perfect for 20-somethings who still have the occasional breakout but also want to focus on anti-aging. Also, I used the Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant once a day for extra exfoliation, and this can be used anywhere! It has improved my skin so much including the backs of my arms, which were once very rough and bumpy. I most recently added the Bamboo Firming Fluid to my daily routine for extra anti-aging to attack fine lines and wrinkles. I’m very impressed by all the products I have tried so far!” Aesthetician Chelsie Cox

We look forward to helping your make the switch to Eminence, soon!
