Essence Testimonials

"LOVE THIS PLACE!!!! I've brought my youngest son a couple of times to have Lisa cut his hair, and she's awesome! She remembered us even though it had been a few months between visits for him. I went there yesterday for myself, and I left with a HUGE confident boost! Lisa did an amazing job coloring my hair (and teach me how to care for the designer/fashion colors) and Whitney did an awesome job curling my hair. Everyone who has seen my hair loves it, and the woman I babysit for says it fits me beautifully. I have found my salon (even when I move out the general area I will still come here). Also, on a non-hair related topic, Lisa makes a mean cup of coffee! I can't wait until it's time to go back!"  - Diedra,  Fairfax VT

"Thank you so much for coming to our rescue when the other stylist we booked was a no show. she squeezed my daughter in and gave her the same care as a scheduled client and didn't rush to get her out the door. You have yourself some new clients!"

"Thank you! Found a gem away from home. Hope to be back one day."     - Mary P   Rochester, NY

"Cannot say enough about how fabulous this salon and spa is. My hair for our wedding was perfect and my bridesmaids just loved their styles. We had a early afternoon ceremony and the salon had no problems accommodating our early morning arrival (and even brought us fresh baked goods for breakfast!). Thank you to Lisa and the team :) "    - The Bride  :)

"Essence was very flexible and helpful for my wedding preparations.They did my hair and 3 bridesmaids and even came in early so that we could be done in time to meet the photographer. We had the place to ourselves in the morning. They played the music we wanted and even provided some snacks... If I had the time the night before I would have pack some supplies for mimosas.

The staff was fun and creative with the hair and makeup. It was great not to have to worry about these things right before the wedding. I had my consultation a few days before, and had tons of time to work with the hair and makeup person to make sure the style would be just what I wanted. The girls were fun and entertaining. I also came in for a manicure, which turned out just as I wanted. They were great and I highly recommend them."

"Felt so pampered while there, so relaxed when I left!!"    - Jill

"I have had a lot of spa treatments and this was by far the best spa experience I have ever had. The treatment was magnificent...the technician took great pride in her work and it showed. The atmosphere was lovely and the prices very reasonable. We were staying at Smugglers Notch and I'm so glad we decided to go into Essence instead of getting our treatments at the resort. Not only did we save money but we got exceptional service. Just wish we didn't live so far away, or I'd be a more regular customer!"

"Always a pleasure to be there! I love every treatment I get and each employee is not only friendly, but cares! They always want to know whats going on in my life, and ask questions about things brought up in previous appointments. They are knowledgeable and enjoy what they do. I will continue to go back time ater time."   - Ahley Jeffersonville, VT

"Great local pit- stop for a haircut and beard trim". Matt  Essex, VT

"I had a great first experience at Essence Salon and Day Spa. I was long overdue for hair care and came in with damaged, unruly hair. she applied an amazing color(I think it's my favorite color I've had) and gave me an awesome cut despite how difficult my hair was. It will definitely be my go-to for hair care and I look forward to trying some of their other salon & spa services."   - Renee
