A chemical peel is a hydroxy acid or enzyme solution that is applied to the skin. Peels dissolve the glue that binds the outermost layer of skin cells, which then "peels" (flakes) off over the following days to reveal the fresher, younger layer below. Peels are very effective in treating a large range of skin concerns such as aging, sun damage, acne, mild scarring, improving skin brightness, and evening skin tone.
Peels can be light, moderate or deep. Light peels require no down time from work and your normal activities. Moderate peels may require a day or two, and deep peels can require a week or more of down time to allow the skin to fully heal. We have peels suitable for teenagers and pregnant women as well as women and men of all ages and skin types.
In our practice, the standard bikini wax includes just the pubic hair that would show outside of the bathing suit line. A French bikini wax is a landing strip on the top with the sides taken in to be in line with the strip, and the Brazilian and everything front to back with the option of leaving a strip behind on the top. We do not perform any male bikini waxing.
Not at all; all ages and body types can practice yoga! In fact, our level 1 yoga classes are great for people who don't do, or have never done, yoga. All yoga poses should be modified for comfort and can be done in a chair. Come and try a class! If you have any questions, injuries, or concerns, arrive early and we can chat about them.
When my father was in college, he read the novel, The Blithesdale Romance. He took my name from that as well as the daughter of one of his favorite radio personalities. Of course, Blythe Danner was also popular then, too! Yes, my father gave me that book with a lovely inscription when I turned ten. My dog ate most of it shortly thereafter and I have mourned the loss ever since. I have a duplicate copy but it is not vintage nor is it the same; I am a daddy's girl!
As soon as you know you need to reschedule, please visit our online portal, email, or call us. We understand that life happens but we will not accept scheduled appointments without a credit card on file in order to protect our employees and business. Any missed or "no show" appointments and those canceled within 24 hours will result in a charge of 50% of the service(s) scheduled. Please remember that this is a business and we must have solid boundaries in place for our protection.
The reduction of waste generated by our business is very important to us. We cannot legally perform services without waivers and forms on file and we will not provide a paper version in the studio. All forms will be filled out online prior to your appointment to allow you to better understand our policies, enjoy your visit with us, and allow you to readily update health and personal information. All forms will be stored securely and confidentially with our software system.

YES! If it can be recycled, we will find a way to recycle it! Additionally, we strive for a sustainable and eco-friendly business when making decisions on cleaning supplies, products, retail, and all aspects of our company.

Absolutely! We treat women during all stages of pregnancy, even the first trimester! If you have any health concerns or potential contraindications, always ask your physician first. We welcome all children into our salon, spa, and yoga studio with parental consent and, when necessary, accompaniment. Please remember that the spa and yoga studio are quiet spaces and soft voices must be used. Additionally, children are welcome with their parents as long as they are not destructive or disturbing other customers and students. BW is NOT responsible for children while their parents receive services. It is the parents' responsibility to watch their child(ren) at all times or you may be asked to leave.
The salon and spa industry are one of the most waste-producing industries to be in. We plan to change that. Team BW has signed up with Green Circle Salons in an effort to reduce the carbon footprint of our services. Together, with the help of your eco fee ($1.50 per visit), we can reduce our carbon footprint! For more information, visit the GCS link below or send us a message!
