My husband gave me a gift certificate for a day of wellness at L'essence. I knew I was in for a treat when i drove up to the salon... a historical, victorian house, really beautiful. They use AVEDA products exclusively, which I personally love, (I'm a bit of a tree hugger). The staff was very friendly and accomodating, the treatment rooms were very nicely appointed and all very different and the spa services... excellent. I definately didn't feel like just a number here, they took time to find out my expectations and fullfilled them. They have a third floor spa relaxation/waiting area, that would be perfect for a girls night out. My color and haircut was exactly what I'd hoped for with the added benefit of a shoulder massage, hand massage and a little touchup of my makeup! I'll definately be back, Thank you, L'essence for making me feel special!
