Founded in 2015, Divine Escape Hair & Body Studio has quickly become a staple in the Stony Plain community for providing high end salon and spa services. The salon specializes in hair design, registered massage therapy, manicures, pedicures, facials & chemical peels, microblading and much more!
Owners Emily St. Charles and Hailey Gillis are most proud of the atmosphere and beautiful space they have created in their salon. Divine Escape Hair & Body Studio is first salon of its kind to open in Stony Plain, meaning this salon offers most esthetic treatments and hair services all under one roof. Both owners were motivated to start their venture from day one as Emily and Hailey came into the beauty industry with the same goal – to one day open and own their own business.
Emily and Hailey say the welcoming atmosphere and small town charm of Stony Plain is one of the benefits of owning a business within this community. The loyal and amazing clients are mostly from around the tri municipal area as well.
The Town of Stony Plain is encouraging and welcoming to new businesses within the community. The biggest struggle Divine Escape faces with being a new business in Stony Plain is being located within a new subdivision that some people still have not heard about, but utilization of free marketing and taking part in community events is spreading the word about this fantastic salon!
Some advice from Emily and Hailey for people looking to start in the salon business is “be patient, get to know your clients and treat them special. As well, talk to as many small business owners as you can to get advice and learn what worked and didn’t work for them.”
