The restructuring of Flaunt Salon
(2166 Windsor Street) helped master esthetician Jill Stephenson
make some big moves, quickly. After looking around for a new home to offer her services from, she jumped on the chance to open her own spot instead.
“I have been working in Halifax for 10 years, it just seemed like the right time,” says Stephenson who opened Jill Stephenson Makeup Artistry and Esthetics last week at 2459 Agricola Street. “I wanted to create a special kind of calm, but fun, place. I’m a pretty fun, open, liberal kind of person and I really do like to connect with my clients,” she says of her opportunity to fly solo.
For now, she’s offering manicures and pedicures, waxing, threading, facials and lash extensions—as well as wedding and special occasion makeup—welcomes walk-ins, and promises chill, personal vibes. “It’s definitely not a spa,” says Stephenson. “I kind of feel like it’s my living room.”
