    First, on Tuesday, January 20th, with your cut and blowout (may we suggest a Michelle Obama "bob"?) we are serving a Champagne Toast from 5:00PM to 7:00PM and a gift to you of Bumble and Bumble hairspray to keep all those fly-aways in place. (Please bring in a copy of this newsletter to receive your gift.)

    Next, on Wednesday, January 21st, to maintain your luscious locks and supple skin we're offering a 15% discount on any hair or skincare product. This is a great time to purchase the Dr. Hauschka products that you love as their prices will increase in February. (Please bring a copy of this newsletter to receive your discount.) Wine and cheese served from 5:00PM -7:00PM!

    On Thursday, January 22nd get ready for the weekend with a well-groomed manicure. We'll treat you to a soothing and comforting paraffin wrap that will help heal your most winter damaged skin, sending moisturizing lotion deep into your hands. This is a really special treat in the winter. This treatment, valued at $25, is our gift to you. (When booking your appointment please mention our newsletter and book extra time for your paraffin treatment.)

    And, finish the week off with a bang on Friday, January 23rd.  Let's keep the celebration rolling with a stylish shampoo and blowout to get you ready for your weekend get-away or to stay at home in style. Take home an Essie nail color of your choice with our compliments.
