"Your nails are a
way to speak your
style without
saying a word.”

– Tammy Taylor

Brow-chicka-
brow-brow!

Us lash lovers have a saying, ‘the longer the lash, the closer
to God’. Okay, so maybe you’re not looking for a spiritual
awakening but a flawlessly styled lashes & brows will have
doors (pearly white gates, anyone?) opening for you at the
snap of your freshly manicured fingers.

Wax on. Wax off.
Enough said.

Just between us friends, no one really loves waxing, but
hey, most folks don’t love a unibrow either. Our skin
calming Azulune wax is great for even the most sensitive
skin, and our ultra-calming hard wax is sure to leave your
skin (and you) un-traumatized and smooth.

Put your best
face forward.

At Smudge, we work only with dermalogica® Certified Skin
Therapists ensuring you receive only the best skin care,
performed by talented and caring individuals using the
latest tools and innovations.
We’ll scrub, shine, plump, and polish your skin, leaving
your fans begging for more. On the go or have a little extra
time to indulge? We’ve got you covered with a selection of
customized skin treatments that are sure to please!

& We’ve got
Junk in Our Trunk

Smudge hates waste!
Except for our workspaces, which are designed to be fully
sanitizable, all of our decor at Smudge has been up-cycled,
recycled, salvaged, thrifted, gifted, or otherwise
repurposed. And it’s ever-changing!
There’s enough junk on our planet, and we try to be part of
the solution. We aim to make our space warm and beautiful
while giving a second chance to decor and materials which
have already made their impact on our planet.
Call us trash, we say ‘thanks for noticing!’
Nothing is disposable. Everything stays on our earth, in our
water, in our air.
Please, minimize your impact whenever you can xo.
