Esthetics with Love

Providing women with a unique, relaxing experience while getting in the essential manicures, pedicures, and facials

After receiving her Master Cosmetologist license in 2015, Lisa Leanne began working in businesses that served large numbers of customers at one time, but something didn’t feel quite right. “I have always loved doing pedicures, manicures, and skincare, but I didn't like where I was working,” explains Lisa. “It felt like a fast-food restaurant….you were in and you were out. I really wanted to provide a service that was more personal and tailored to the client.”  

Earlier this year, Lisa opened Esthetics with Love to provide women with a unique, relaxing experience while getting in the essential manicures, pedicures, and facials. “For me, it's about the experience and it’s an act of love because my primary love language is acts of service,” shares Lisa. “I get so much fulfillment out of providing services for people and making people happy.”

The spa-like experience begins the moment a client walks into the room, which has a calming, welcoming feel. “A lay down pedicure is more relaxing than going to a nail salon and sitting beside five other people getting their feet done,” says Lisa. “Here, you're in a private room; the lights are dim, and candles are burning.” The heated bed provides a cozy place to relax while starting with a foot soak in a luxurious hammered copper bowl to prepare the feet for the rest of the pedicure. After bolstering the client’s knees for comfort, Lisa’s process includes a foot massage using a peppermint Himalayan salt scrub, a hot towel wrap on the legs and feet, and ends with carefully applied polish that, under normal wear, lasts the four weeks until the next appointment.  

Lisa offers manicures and facials as well, with approximate times for the length of the various services on her website so that clients know what to expect. “I spend my time making sure your feet and hands look amazing,” she says. “I don't rush through any part of the service. I make sure that everything looks great and that takes time. It's truly a self-care experience.” Also available are group packages for a relaxing outing with friends.
