Though Kathy Vanderveen enjoyed her 18 years spent working as a beauty teacher at a local college and a specialist at high-end spas, she never stopped dreaming of opening up a shop of her own. Determined to bring her fantasy to fruition, Kathy gathered a staff of specialists and created Me,Me,Me! Manicures. There, Kathy can focus on her true passion—mani-pedis—as her staff administers professional waxing and eyelash extensions.
Kathy's spa is a tranquil cocoon of sea-green walls, where clients recline on cushy white beds, plush sofas, and overstuffed armchairs. Soft light streams in through billowy curtains, causing the silver furniture to sparkle. Throughout the space, framed pictures proclaim inspirational messages—cheerful adages that you might find crocheted on a pillow or tattooed across the bicep of an unexpectedly sensitive truck driver.
