Story of Glow

Glow Facials & Waxing is an independent one woman salon.  I specialize in facials, peels, brow shaping, brazilians and full body waxing.

 I started in the world of beauty 19 yrs. ago, first working as a manager for a local beauty supply shop and then for a major beauty distributor as a sales representative.  It was during this time I found my passion for skincare.  For years I struggled with acne and thought what a great way to help people with the same dilemma and at the same time pursue a career in an industry that I love.  I enrolled myself in a local aesthetic school and received my license in 2001 and began a journey that to this day I still find challenging and exciting. Every day I find satisfaction and enjoyment in what I do and feel blessed to help people find treatments for their skin conditions, whether it be acne, pigmentation, aging skin or just looking for that certain "glow."  

If it's great skin that you want or that perfect brow, my ultimate goal is your satisfaction.  I have every confidence that together we can achieve results that allow you to see your true beauty.

Love Barbara. Amazing facials, waxing and make-up. I have been going to her every month for the past 3 years for an eyebrow wax and I have even recently gotten my husband to come and get his eyebrows done as well. She does an amazing job at mens brows as well, keeping them still manly but just cleaned up.  ~ Leah G

I've been going Barbara on and off for four years and have been amazed at her ability to transform my skin every time.
