Treat your feet to a relaxing pedicure…your hands to a Shellac manicure…
If you are in the area and need some “me” time, this is the place for YOU!

​I opened up this studio in May of 2008 at its original location in downtown Pella. It has always been a passion for me to work with women and help them feel the best about themselves. This is more than a job to me. Where else can you work where you have such a positive and satisfied clientele? Nowhere!

I am a mother and an ‘Ama’ (Grandma). I am a Pella native and many of my extended family members still live here. I have lived in a couple of different cities in the past, but there is no place like home! Pella is where my heart is and always will be.

Owning my own business doesn’t leave too much time for extracurricular hobbies, but any available time to spend with my “grands” is perfect to me.

It is my desire that you will immediately feel at home when you walk through our door. From being greeted with a smile all the way until you have finished your time with us, you will know it is all about you and what you want.

Let us help you let the worries and stresses of everyday life fade away while you enjoy some special time just for yourself.
