Nearby businesses in Marshfield offer spa services, men’s hair care
MARSHFIELD – Two friends are making a name for themselves with their neighboring businesses that offer a range of self-care services.
Jessica Nelson, owner of Barbs and scissorsand Kira Breu, owner of Central tranquility, opened their businesses together at 837 S. Central Ave. at Marshfield. They operate in the same salon as established businesses Hairapy by Trish and Hair by Tonja.
Breu said she met Trish Volkey and Tonja McDonald as clients years ago when she was in cosmetology school. They stayed in touch and Breu eventually met Nelson through his friends. They convinced Breu to open Central Tranquility in the same salon where the trio already operated their own business.
Nelson opened Beards & Shears as the pandemic raged in August 2020. Although it was a particularly difficult year for businesses, Nelson said it gave him the opportunity to slow down, develop a business plan and run it.
Nelson specializes in men’s hair, offering haircuts, waxes, perms, colors, and beard trims, although it does not offer razor shaves. She now has several regular customers and has racked up rave reviews. on Facebook.
“I was treated like family as my first customer,” said one reviewer. “I will definitely be back! The service, price, ambience and attention to detail were all fantastic and I feel human again!”
Breu opened Central Tranquility in May and has been working to expand its customer base. Its spa offers manicures, pedicures, facials, and full waxing. She offers nail designs of all kinds, including holiday-themed, floral, patterned and more.
Facebook reviewers also loved their day spa experience.
One reviewer said, “My daughter and I had an amazing experience with Kira! Probably the best pedicure I’ve ever had! Great products, great company, and an overall fantastic time! My gel nails are still perfect 3 weeks later!”
