Going against the grain has never bothered Stacey Grondahl. Throughout her beauty career she has welcomed it, which is why she not only became an aesthetician but also went on to train as a laser technician and massage therapist. But just when most skincare specialists would call it a day, Stacey furthered her skill set by becoming a representative for Raw skincare for men.
And it is with this passion for aesthetics and determination to shake things up that Stacey established her male-centric spa, Simplicity. Amid teal-colored walls and funky rock 'n' roll accents—such as bedazzled skulls—Stacey hydrates and smoothes men’s complexions using organic Raw skincare products. Her #BoozeAndTaboos menu is a study in clever treatment names. There's The Tequila Shooter, an energizing facial infused with blue-agave tequila extract and menthol, and the Get Buffed, an exfoliation formulated from dragon’s blood. Stacey also cleans up physiques with gentle waxing treatments and reaches for Raw’s all-natural ingredients—clove and grape-seed oils to be exact—to soothe irritated skin during a massage.
Even though the aesthetician’s treatments are geared toward men, women are always welcome at Simplicity. The skilled aesthetician is on hand to customize any facial, waxing, or massage treatment.
