Covid cases are currently rising, and many of us are becoming
more concerned and taking additional precautions again.
As of June 1, Essence stopped requiring masks inside our building. While it is now recommended by the CDC that everyone,
regardless of vaccination status wear masks inside again, we
have chosen not to require masks inside our building at this time.
If you would like to wear your mask, we fully respect
your decision, and if you would like your service provider
to also wear a mask, we will happily do so.
We understand there are many different levels of concern
among our clients, and we are doing our best to respect
everyone's rights and accommodate wherever we can.

Current Protocols
  • Guests should check in at the front desk upon arrival and use hand sanitizer or wash their hands in the restroom.
  • Staff and guests will no longer be required to wear masks inside the building.
  • Everyone deserves to feel safe. Staff and guests are welcome to wear a mask, for as long as they choose. Guests may also request their service provider wear a mask during their service.
  • We will no longer be performing a symptom check upon arrival, but we ask that you reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well.
  • We are offering drink service again.
  • We have resumed offering paraffin hand treatments for $9.00.
 Retail and Checkout
  • Feel free to shop until you drop! We have many new items as well as our tried and true favorites available for you to peruse.
  • We still offer safe, touch free, expedited checkout by placing your credit card on file. This is totally optional. Our software system encrypts your card number immediately, protecting your identity.
  • We accept cash and we also accept checks from established clients
Please note:
  • We will continue to offer private room hair appointments in the foreseeable future for those who are not yet comfortable in the main salon. These appointments are offered in limited capacity, please let us know at the time of scheduling if you need this type of appointment so we can make sure your appointment is booked appropriately.
  • We also have a few express service options available in our hair salon. These services were designed last year for clients who were concerned about lengthy exposure, but they have proved popular enough to continue. Please ask for details if you are interested in scheduling an express service. Please note: These services don't work for every client/service.
Our commitment to you
  • A clean salon and spa.
  •  Disinfected tools and implements.
  •  Meticulous hand washing by staff and gloves when appropriate.
  •  Disinfecting wipes at all entry and bathroom doors
  • Hand sanitizer at every workstation and throughout the facility.

Please let us know if you have specific questions.
We look forward to seeing you and as always,
we are profoundly grateful for your loyalty and trust,
Kim Taylor
