I had the most amazing facial and back facial ever! She was very attentive, professional, and she informed me of each step she took. Her hands are God sent! The massage she gave was soothing along with the hot stones. Micah Childs was amazing and I recommend her services. Everyone at Empire was friendly and welcoming. Thank you and I will definitely be back!

I went to get a specialty facial from Ansley B. and was BLOWN AWAY by her bedside manners and how attentive she is to clients. Not only did she make me feel comfortable in my chair, she made sure my mind was at ease by letting me know what she was doing. Highly recommend her and will definitely being going back to her for more!! She left me with a flawless face and more knowledge about taking care of my skin. 10/10

I had a brow lamination & tint, plus, a lash lift & tint with Ansley. I’m so happy with the results, she was fantastic! I appreciated her consistent attention to my request for coloring and style. She kept my preferences and comfort in mind throughout the service and regularly checked in to ensure she met my needs. She’s so kind and easy to talk to which made the appointment fly by. I’ll be back soon for another appointment and trust her to keep my brows and lashes looking great.
