Long before she opened Spa Lux, Sara Bagley braved the demands of the retail world, never letting the long and hectic hours distract her smile and sincere appreciation for her customers? needs. A spark of curiosity led her to the Federico Beauty Institute, where her interests in skincare bloomed into passions as she soaked up training in facials, waxing, and microdermabrasion.
Though her career has since moved away from retail, Sara remains ever in tune with her customers' desires. Her cheery disposition and enthusiasm for skincare are equally embodied in Spa Lux, a chic salon and spa where she and her staff draw on their collective wisdom to dote upon complexions and brush away the nests of tattooed sparrows.
Sara's customer-first philosophy is nowhere more evident than in the spa?s roster of facials, each of which the aestheticians customize to meet the client's skin type. Image Skincare products lead the charge of antioxidants and skin brighteners, and Clarisonic?s Sonic Skin Cleansing System promotes healthy tones while reversing inverted dimples.
