Love Notes


I headed over to BAR beauty & CO for a cut and deep conditioning with Melanie late last week, and was seriously blown away by her attention to detail and level of skill-not to mention that she came out in the middle of a blizzard to make it happen! She worked some kind of magic on my dry + frazzled head of hair. Salon has great natural lighting and yummy hot tea to boot!


Just had the most gorgeous lashes applied by Julie!!! Friendly, laid back, amazing staff! I could go on and on!!!! Go see her for all your lash and beauty needs! Next up: BROWS!!


Julie and Melanie are amazing! I treated myself to hair and makeup before my brother-in-law's wedding. I felt pampered and enjoyed every minute! I recieved several compliments on my hair and makeup throughout the night!


My daughter and I loved everything about getting her hair and make up done with Julie and Melanie! We highly recommend them and will be using them again!!


Melanie did a wonderful job for my hair. She was also very friendly and professional. The salon was absolutely beautifully decorated and clean.


Julie is so incredibly talented, patient, and amazing to work with. I showed her a picture of a wedding look off Pinterest and she completed nailed it at my trial and again for my wedding. She even helped bronze out a tanline I had for my wedding dress! My wedding look is absolutely flawless and the airbrush lasted me all through the day and a full night of dancing. She even puts lashes on individually so it looks natural without seeing the band of false lashes. Julie is a natural at both makeup and managing her business and I'm so glad to have worked with her. Thank you for glamming up me and my bridal party, everyone looked absolutely beautiful!
