Grand Opening!

Last night was our version of the "big dance" at Untangled Salon.
So many community memebers came and were very impressed.
Now women have a place to come escape from their lives and pamper themselves.
A local restaurant catered for us.
Our guests dined on fresh juicy pineapple, cantaloupe,strawberries,oranges and watermelon along with chilled creampuffs, salami, cheese, crackers, mini tacos and cookies.~
Everytime Haeli and I would grab a drink we made sure to take a big whiff and make sure we weren't having an alcoholic beverage (ha ha)

Glimpse of our waiting area and Carlie's station. We both chose to use antique dressers which adds so much character to the salon.

How cute are my two Haeli's:) Sister-in-law Haeli was the only one to stay home in Lewistown and come to the big event. I will love her forever. Weston had his first football game in Fairfield so everyone peaced out on us. (Which by the way they won 42-0:) ) Good friend Hayley drove all the way from Rexburg Idaho to support us.
She's been in the Paul Mitchell Hair School there for two months now! Isn't her hair so cute??

Three ladies of the evening! Serious I love where I work and who I work with.
Never a dull moment with us three.
I'm so grateful for this opportunity to work in the best salon in Lewistown!
(Carlie's good friend Scott ,who is a traveling color specialist,told us that he has taught at some amazing salons around the United States and that we are right up there with the best.
Very nice compliment for us)

Haeli and I were planning on playing for the live music portion for the night. Originally Weston and Jaxon were supposed to perform also but that was before we found out West had his first game of the season. So Haeli and I ended up setting up our sound system by ourselves (which is not exactly my cup of tea) I had talked to one of my music friend earlier in the week asking if he'd want to just come make sure that I set it up correctly. He runs the local open mic night and has his own sound system so he's pretty legit (secretly hoping he'd offer to set it all up) He sent another one of our friends over and he added to our original set up and made the sound sound twice as good! I felt so loved that night. All five of them are in a band and they offered to come play. (Drums, harmonica, bass etc ...the whole shebang)
PS Brian Wicks the bass player builds guitars for Modest Mouse, and does repair work for Zack Wylde.
Even though all these guys are in their 40's and 50's I realized after last night they're my true friends forever. I've never had friends like this who genuinely care for me and dropped everything they were doing for the night to come help and support me. My heart was so full!
Haeli and I played for an hour or so and they took the next hour! Love them all.

H enjoying our new wash house!

Little blurry but this is the hallway to our spa. The spa consists of a waxing room, two tanning rooms, a pedicure room and massage room. I wish there were before pictures to show how ugly this spot used to be. The space used to be a movie store and every wall was painted a bright canary yellow. Amazing what a little paint and TLC will do to a place!

We had over 25 bouquets sent to the salon from clients! We were so happy with how everything turned out! Felt very loved....
