Mechanicsburg Small Business
So it’s been a while since we’ve features a small business on my blog and I’m excited to come back with this awesome location, SPAtacular Escapes. It took us a while to get together for the meeting and pictures and I’m so glad that we finally did. If you haven’t visited this establishment, YOU NEED TO. This Mechanicsburg Small Business is absolutely gorgeous inside and out and offers amazing services. It was wonderful to meet owner, Shelly, Wendeln and get a first hand tour of the building. Enjoy your virtual tour and info! And make sure to tell them you heard about them from majorCLICKS Photography.

Tell me about YOU! Why did you choose to do what you do?
Starting from my childhood, I grew up among an amazing family of Cosmetologists – My mother, sister, several aunts and cousins, and my daughter, Chelsie – who has been in the industry for 7+ years, is SpaE’s Salon Manager, and recently gave birth to Eleonora (Ellie) – who will perhaps carry on the legacy and become another future Stylist at SpaE. I have always highly respected the trade, but decided to earn a BS in Chemistry and dabble in Naturopathic studies on the side, unaware that someday it would all come full circle. Being around the spa and salon industry for most of my life, I witnessed first- hand the effects of the toxic chemicals found in hair, skin, and nail products. My mother unfortunately developed allergies to most hair products which ultimately ended her career. She often asked me to research and to find a natural hair product line that she would be able to use on herself as well as others safely. Our family wanted to bring to the West Shore a place where people could ‘escape’ the everyday chaos, come to relax, get beautified, and focus on their wellness. Hence, SPAtacular Escapes was born. It brings our family great happiness and fulfillment to see the joy in our guests’ faces after experiencing a service at our spa.
If you sell products, what is your absolute favorite product that everyone must try?
My sister (a former Cosmetologist) – who sadly passed away last year from breast cancer – made it her mission to help me find an organic hair line that was safe for our guests as well as our employees. I am proud to say that she found us an amazing Italian line called OWAY, and I will continue to carry on her vision in all areas of the spa.
