What We Do

Madison Gibson​

​Crystal grew up in the Lingle area, graduating from Lingle-Fort Laramie High School. In addition to helping her husband out with his business and taking care of her daughter, she is a great help to us in the salon and with the former salon-turned rental.*

We love Crystal's great attitude and sweet personality! We are so grateful to have her around!


We love that we have the power to be the bright spot in someone's day. We are able to focus on humans, provide a little break from the chaos, and encourage our clients and each other as we go back out into the world. ​We are committed to taking great care of everyONE and everyTHING in our care.

It is extremely simple in Wyoming to begin a massage business and we have taken care of many logistics, all we need is an ambitious individual who is interested in massage therapy and/or skincare and is ready to commit long-term to building and growing a successful career in the industry!

We don't want to change everything about our clients' looks...we just want to bring out the beauty we know is already there. We love how something as simple as a haircut can make such a difference in how we FEEL. ENHANCING BEAUTY is what we do.

We believe few things are more inspirational than watching people CHOOSE to grow. As long as God allows us, we will show up, keep going, and keep GROWING. As fast as things change, we will resist comfort zones and strive to never to stop learning. We believe by working together we can empower eachother as we grow our businesses and are inspired by others that do the same. 


Amanda Riley

Our massage therapist has headed south for the winter so we are eagerly seeking someone to fill the huge need for a full-time massage therapist. We can offer an established clientele, a quiet, comfortable space, access to our website/online scheduling, and an extremely reasonable rental agreement. We love what we do and can't wait to find the right person to settle in with us long-term as we support each other in building and growing our businesses!

Madison is a Lingle native and currently attends Lingle High School. She is active in golf, basketball and FBLA. 

She is creative, driven and a hard worker, so she fits in well around here!

We love having her around to help us keep up when things get busy!
