Taylor Thiessen, a former esthetician at Tarnows, has opened her own business downtown, Shuswap Sparkles, at 250 Alexander St. NE, with Kirstie Lowe. They are focusing on gel nails, waxing and tinting.
Along with nails, “we do full waxing – legs, arms and facial waxing but no body wraps, no massage, no facials,” Thiessen says.
Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Tuesday to Friday. Saturdays are by appointment only.
