"Reeda Todd Salon at the Geist Marina Village has a new breath of life, thanks to an ownership change. Erin and Chad Hunt of Carmel purchased the popular salon and spa with a vision to transform it into a new concept “nail bar,” called the Beauty Bar at Geist.
“Women can come in and sit at the bar and get their nails done while drinking their favorite adult beverage,” said Erin.
“And with our liquor license, we can do it legally,” Chad added with a smile.
Erin and Chad saw this nail bar concept in Florida where the couple lived for seven years. When they returned to their old stomping grounds, the entrepreneurial itch led them to looking for an established hair salon with a good customer base and reputation for service.
“When we met the staff here for the first time back in April, they were so excited and anxious for a change,” Erin added.
Remodeling has started with fresh paint and reception area upstairs. The new nail bar should be finished by the end of July. All the services previously provided by Reeda Todd will continue, including the Aveda hair salon, pedicures, makeup, facials, massages, manicures and body treatments.
“Women get their nails done more often than their hair. We are hoping that if people come in for a relaxing manicure and glass of wine, they will come back for their other spa services, too.”
So, ladies, if you are looking for a girls’ night out with all the amenities, stop by the new and improved Beauty Bar at Geist. Their new website is www.thebeautybargeist.com and they have started Facebook and twitter feeds."
