One of the best ways to show our community some love is by supporting our local businesses in Kailua. We have so many amazing businesses that are the bedrock of our community. Each quarter I try to highlight several of our local businesses in “Go Kailua” magazine. So in this video, I want to share with you a few Kailua businesses where you can practice self-care. If you follow me on social media, you know that I'm a big proponent of shopping locally. When you shop locally you support local businesses who employ local people. So, let's explore a few recommendations when you do a little self-care.
All Your Hair Needs
If you are in need of care for your hair located right in the Kailua Square area, you have two amazing salons located in one space. Beyond the Mirror/The Fix Kailua provides friendly, personalized service for all of their clients. Gizelland Matt, a highly skilled team of creative professionals, offer high quality hair and spa services that keep their clients feeling fresh and looking great. Have you been putting off a cut, color, refresh or touch up? If so, this is your resource. Please note: it's not just for women. My boys get their haircuts there, too. And, they're located right in the Kailua Square area. So, there's a parking lot with lots of metered parking. You can find out more information about them on Instagram at BTMsalon_ or at The Fix Kailua where they feature a lot of their work.
Are you embarrassed of those toes showing in your slippers? The crew at Happy Nails Kailua in the Enchanted Lake Shopping Center can help you with those toes. And while you're there, those hands can likely use some pampering, too. You can opt for either the regular or the gel option. And make sure you indulge in their deluxe spa pedicure for an extra special experience. I'm personally a big fan of the hot stone therapy and massage, So, if your nails need a little razzle-dazzle, feel free to visit Scott and his team of nail wizards at Kailua Happy Nails right near Ben Franklin and Boots & Kimo’s.
Do you have unwanted fuzz somewhere that needs to be eliminated? I think we all have some hair we wouldn't mind seeing disappear for around six weeks, right? Simply Summer Waxing offers hair removal services where you can feel comfortable and the space is clean and welcoming. Some of their services can be quite personal, but Summer and her staff make you feel comfortable and at ease at all times. They are also kid and mom friendly. If you need to bring the Littles with you, you can find Simply Summer Waxing above The Source Natural Foods on Kainehe.
Get the Massage of Your Dreams
Once you get your hair done, your nails manicured and unwanted hair removed, the ultimate indulgence is a trip to the spa. I highly recommend two Kailua spas that offer amazing facials and massage. At Honu You and Lomi Lomi Hana Lima, they not only offer spa services, they each cater to the whole person who desires holistic health and healing.
At Hono You, their mission is to get to know you. They ask a lot of questions and listen to your individual needs in order to deliver the best lasting result with their holistic facials and hapa lomi lomi. Each treatment is personalized to you for what you need to relax and heal. For example, you may receive a massage and have either fascia blasting or cupping incorporated into the service. Their passion, as well as their mission, is to bring wellness into our daily lives. They emphasize this through superior treatment products and education. They also feature organic Eminence and Jan Marini products. You can find Hono You right on Uluniu Street.
Lomi Lomi Hana Lima’s loving intent is to create a restful place for physical and spiritual renewal. Eri and her staff desire that their clients injuries and illnesses be alleviated, and the healing process is expedited. Their soul-soothing treatments include scrubs, lomilomi, massage, and a wide variety of facials. And after any treatment, you can relax in the relaxation tea room. There, they feature Honua Hawaiian skincare. They are located in Kailua square on the second level.
