I just found this spa. I went to Yoloberry and walked past Smooth as Silk and decided to go in. I asked the receptionist if they had time for a brow wax, which I'd been putting off since I moved to Davis, I'd been going to the same woman at home since I was 15 and was nervous about a new person. She was really sweet and friendly and said she'd check and then said that the owner just had a cancellation and could see me. She gave me a glass of water and had me wait in the couch. The woman that came out to me wasn't an 'owner' like I was expecting. She was gentle and beautiful and had a glow around her, and she really looked into me when she said hello, something about the way she watched me made me feel like I was going to cry because I was new to Davis and had been feeling so homesick and was really missing my mom. She took me into a super relaxing and pretty room and told me to lay down on the bed and asked me if I had any special requests for my eyebrows. I just said I didn't want them too thin because I'd been going to the same woman for a long time and it was scary to try someone new. She told me not to worry, that she would take good care of me. She worked magic on my eyebrows, they have never been so beautiful, but that's not why I'm writing this comment. I sat up and she looked at me and told me that it was ok to feel scared and lonely, that it's a process when we're in a new environment and that each day I'd feel more comfortable. She told me that on the days that I wasn't, I could come and talk with her and she'd be here for me. I asked her why she was being so nice to me and she said that she has two grown children and she hopes that when they are in a new place someone will be there for them, because she believes what she puts out in the world will be given back. She told me that when I'm feeling comfortable in my skin and the time comes that I should be there for someone else and so on...that that's the way we put goodness into a sometimes difficult world and that people need to support each other. So, my eyebrows are beautiful, my heart is full and I've learned something about life that I didn't expect that day. My mom wants her email to thank her for taking such good care of me and teaching me something about life I may not have learned. Thanks Stella.
