Wedding mojo is real. Ask any bride or groom who’s dealt with a difficult vendor or a wedding planner whose biggest concern is the bottom line. Which is why Christine Morris, the founder of beauty bar Full Circle, likes to think of her business as more than a place to receive services to look great; it’s also a community rich with compassion for its staff and clients.The venue’s world recently got much bigger: This fall, Full Circle moved to a newly remodeled space on Spring Street, giving its team the square footage to offer additional services like in-salon massage and facials; speed stations—special chairs that allow for pedicures, manicures and hair styling at the same time—are also new. Full Circle has boosted its reputation over the years by offering services for hair, nails, makeup, waxing, spray tanning, mobile massage, mobile yoga and prepping brides and grooms for photo shoots before, during and after the big day.
“Our goal is to create an atmosphere of community, where people relax and stay a while,” says Jordan Schwartz, Full Circle’s general manager. “One of the many fabulous details about the new space is a state- of-the-art air filtration system that’s clean-air OSHA- certified. This is not only wonderful [to take care of] service fumes and dust for clients and employees, but it also provides another layer of protection against COVID-19. We aim to work as safely as possible for our clients and staff.”
When it comes to weddings, Schwartz says to think of the Full Circle team as part of an overall strategy for pampering, hair, face and wellness. “We go absolutely wherever the couple goes—on top of a mountain, in a snowy field, a cabin on the lake. It doesn’t matter; we can travel anywhere for our couples,” she says. The salon is a one-stop shop for beauty needs, of course, but also offers massage and private yoga classes for the bridal party—men and women. The staff also specializes in men’s wedding and event makeup, and Full Circle can special-order HALO extensions for bridal hair trials. Feasting during services is part of the allure here too. “Our bridal parties can preorder breakfast, brunch, lunch, juice and snacks along with the bottle of your choice, whether wine or Champagne, as well as a couple of six-packs,” says Schwartz. We’ll toast any day of the week to those options. 117 Spring St., Ste. 101, 970.923.3302, fullcircleaspen.com
