A new salon has opened in Moose Lake. Beautique opened its doors August 1 and clients have been enjoying the newly remodeled building.

Beautique is located on Elm Avenue between the library and the Moose Lake Star-Gazette office.

Heather Tomczak and Brandi Hoffman have teamed up as owners of the salon. Each has had more than 20 years of experience in the area and their clients are coming to the new salon.

"I used to own Flhair," said Tomczak. "Brandi and Michelle (Hockensmith) worked there for me."

Tomczak explained she brought the phone number from Flhair with her to Beautique and that has caused some confusion for the clients who call.

"They wonder where Flhair went and why it is now Beautique," she said. "Brandi and I joined in a new partnership and chose a new name."

Tomczak and Hoffman offer cuts, perms, coloring, foiling, updos and conditioning treatments.

The spa offers manicures and pedicures and a treatment room for facials, lashes and waxing.

Hockensmith is the massage therapist for Beautique and has almost 24 years of experience.

"I do deep tissue, Swedish, and shiatsu massage," she said. "I studied in Honolulu and California, and I worked for the Air Force in Okinawa and Japan."

The trio is very pleased with the newly remodeled salon and the new location.

"We are looking for another stylist and a spa technician," said Tomczak.

"The location is absolutely amazing!" said Tomczak. "I love it!"

"So many people stop in," said Hoffman. "It's a high traffic area. The whole community is so supportive in welcoming us. People are curious; they look in the windows. The hustle and bustle is fun."

"We always welcome new clients," said Hockensmith.

"Stop in and check us out," added Hoffman.

Call Beautique at (218) 485-4448 for more information or to make an appointment.
