GODFREY — Bliss Salon and Spa owner Kaysee Johnson is focused on giving her clients the family treatment when seeking hair care, manicures and pedicures, massages and skin care.
“We have a full staff of professionals that gives a warm welcome to all of our clients,” Johnson said. “Our customer service is one thing that really sets us apart from other salons or traditional day spas.”
Previously known as Renew Face and Body, Johnson transformed her business into Bliss in 2013, adding services including a full-service hair salon, massage therapy, nail care, airbrush make-up applications and now the complete line of Bare Minerals Cosmetics.
“We are really excited to have Bare Minerals on board,” Johnson said. “We offer a free consultation and color matching to help people get started. It really is a great product and it’s so much better for the skin. It’s so lightweight. The foundation is made from just five ingredients. A lot of make-ups have so many chemicals that aren’t needed or good for you. Bare Minerals is really good for people who are prone to have breakouts.”
A day at Bliss is not just for women; men also are getting massages or a manicure and pedicure.
“Our nail technician, Angie Puskar, is fantastic and the gentlemen are surprised how much they enjoy it,” Johnson said. “When it comes to massages, the ratio between men and women is really close to 50 percent. We welcomed a new massage therapist, Trinity Napoli-Kelly, a couple of months ago. She has a lot of experience to offer our clients.”
Bliss Salon and Spa is working with the American Cancer Society, providing massages specifically designed for cancer patients and a free wig to patients losing their hair.
“We are an American Cancer Society Wig Salon,” Johnson said. “We are so thrilled to offer this service to clients. If someone is receiving treatments for cancer and knows they will lose their hair or is experiencing hair loss, they can come in for one free wig and one of our trained stylists will fit the wig and cut and style the hair at no charge. It’s really an honor to offer that service.”
Atmosphere and customer service are two elements of Bliss that Johnson said make her clients feel at home.
“We offer separate areas for different services to allow more privacy for our clients,” Johnson said. “We want clients to feel at home, whether it’s their first time visiting us or if they are a regular. We offer comfort and relaxation in a safe and clean environment. We often suggest our clients bring pajamas to wear on their way home after a massage if they’d like.”
