It's been a long time since downtown Nikiski has had a beauty shop. There have been in home cosmetology services available in the Nikiski area, according to Lois Garretson-Macy, one of the owner/operators of the new Nikiski Hair, Nails, & Supply, but no full service beauty shop in the area.
The new beauty shop and supply is located directly across from the Nikiski Fire Station #2, "There was a real need out here, I'm a licensed cosmetologist, and I wanted to get back in the business," said Macy who along with her partner Kathy Newstead opened the shop in February.
The shop has gotten off to a popular start with local men as well as women, "A lot of local and out of state workers that work right here and at the new BP plant, it's made it real convenient for people," said Macy adding that a lot of guys working long hours in those steel toed shoes are really hard on their feet, and are coming in for pedicures and lower leg massages. "They are a luxury that every man should try at least once," added Newstead.
The shop also carries a full line of professional products including the popular colored hair waxes. Lois and Kathy also say they are willing to special order any product requested and have it on site in a couple of days. Appointments are available, but walk-ins are always welcome.
