Here is our story ...
We are a Full Service Salon & Spa that is constantly reinventing our self. Kimberly opened her doors in June of 2001, At that time she had a little 2 chair Salon with a Nail Table that offered all, she herself could do. Her dream was to one day have a Full Service Salon that offered almost everything the Beauty Industry could offer to a Client. So... began our journey. It started with offering Facials & Massage, then came Reiki (an Eastern art of Balancing the body's Energy flow). She very quickly realized the need for Support Staff to keep everyone on task! When more Stylists joined her, Kimberly realized that the Salon needed more space! So we moved from our humble little spot to a bigger space. Kimberly decided to put in 3 Styling Chairs, 2 Manicure Tables, a Pedicure Throne & a room for "Body Work" (Massage, Reiki, Facials, and Body Waxing). Then came the opportunity to add Tanning along with a library and a few more services. So we expanded yet again. Not long after that, Kim decided to add a variety of Classes, and Readings. We soon needed more Support Staff to keep us on track and take care of the Tanning. Kim's Dream has become Reality! In the fall of 2012 we needed to make a move to yet another new location. This new location was bit smaller however it was the "home" of the original place that Kim started working in Poynette...bring her full circle. The building we are now in had been a salon since the early 1950's for a great many yrs (minus the last 15 yrs). The original air vent from the '50's is still in working order! we also have and still use the original manicure stool. Heavy as it is! So it is kinda fun! ;0) Kim herself is a Reiki level III Practitioner/Teacher and Level I in Theta Healing. She will be a certified Aroma Therapist in the fall of 2014. She uses Essential Oils ,Crystals, & Herbs, as well as other Natural approaches to wellness and is always happy to share some knowledge to help others. She also will do one on one Hair Classes for Styling & Braiding upon request. We just added 2 new and exciting services to the salon... Vibro-Acoustic therapy and Theta Healing! Come Visit us sometime....Please, Enjoy all we have to offer!
We are SO much more than "Just Your Hair Salon"!

Kimberly Heller is a Master(III) level Reiki Teacher. This is a very old Eastern Art of moving Universal life force energy into the body to" re- balance" it. By doing so the body operates more efficiently by being able to handle all we tend to "throw" at it in any given day. When your body is balanced you will heal better as well as get sick less often. She also works with your 7 major Chakras, clearing them so that every thing is in harmony. She may add Crystals/stones or Essential Oils/herbs to complete the experience. She is Certified in Level I Theta Healing. This is a way of "un hooking" blockages so you can move forward. She also does Ear Candling, Facials, body waxing, Card(divination) Reading, and Eye lash enhancements!
