" After contemplating permanent eye liner and researching various salons I chose Always Pretty Salon and Spa. Carol the owner scheduled my appointment and answered my questions over the phone. Upon arriving for my appointment I found the salon to very inviting and clean. Carol went over the details again and showed me how my eyeliner would look with my choice of color. My original appointment was for upper and lower but after some consultation I decided that I would only need the lower eyelid done to get the best look. Carol was completely accommodating and did not attempt to pressure me into getting more than what I thought was right for me. Prior to starting she puts a topical anesthetic on the area and throughout the entire procedure will reapply as necessary to ensure minimal pain and discomfort. She keeps you informed of what she's doing and the progress through out the process. To be clear this is not a pain-free procedure. That said it was worth the discomfort. I am thrilled with the outcome and highly recommend Carol to anyone considering permanent makeup. "

Hi Carol! I wanted to tell you how happy I have been with the permanent make-up you have done for me over the last 10+ years. As a physician, I can say YOU more than exceed the professional standards for tattooing. As a client and a woman, I can say your expertize in the artistry of tattooing is exceptional. So exceptional that, even though I moved to Florida 2 years ago, I have set up an appointment for a touch up in February- I'm flying up! See you then!

Last week, my daughter and 7 of her friends, had the pleasure of celebrating her Sweet 16 at Always Pretty Salon and Spa. Everything went so smoothly from the first contact with the warm and enthusiastic, customer-focused owner, Carol. Carol promptly returned all my communications, answered my questions, and created a spa experience that was creative and fit our expectations/budget! Always Pretty was the only salon I contacted willing and able to host 8 teens while permitting us to bring food and drinks.
Carol graciously allowed us to basically take over her space. Four girls enjoyed their mani/pedi pampering in one room, while in the spacious and lovely appointed adjoining parlor, the remaining girls hung out, grabbed a bite and celebrated. The result was a memorable party for my daughter who was able to relax, chat, and move between the rooms while celebrating with her friends. If you're looking for a warm and inviting staff, excellent service, relaxing environment, and a staff who'd rather say "what if we try this" instead of "no", Always Pretty is a perfect place to host your party. We couldn't have been more happy with the result. Enjoy!
Carol, and staff, thank you for the wonderful day! "

" This place is awesome to get your nails done at and very worth it. The interior of the salon is beautiful. It has an Renaissance/old world feel to the decor. It is on the outskirts of Quakertown in a town called Coopersburg. This is NOT one of the salons in Quakertown where they rush you out because they are busy and barely speak English. Carol, the owner, gave me a manicure before going on vacation the next day and they turned out beautiful! If you are tired of the run of the mill nail salon, you need to check this place out! I had no idea that they also have so many other services to choose from. I also enjoyed that they had online booking as well. Makes life a lot easier to figure out what times they have available to see you. I will definitely be coming back for a couple's massage and to get my hair cut in the future. "

I love the relaxing CDs she puts on while she working on you! I love not having to put eyeliner on every morning especially in the summer when the black smears all over your eyelid! I can't say enough about it, I just wish I would have done it years ago! Thanks Carol! "

Every day I missed my real eyebrows which gradually lightened as I got older. Another thrilling aspect of aging! I swim often, and my lack of eyebrows really bothered me. One day I saw her add in the Doylestown Professional Women's newspaper and decided to call Carol and get the scoop.
Well, I did-and I am extremely pleased with my "new" eyebrows. They look even better than my "originals"!
Carol was very explanatory both before and during the procedure. She spent a full hour with me a week before, explaining exactly how she proceeds: first I sketch in the brows the way I like them, then we both critiqued them carefully, and only then she begins to apply the makeup.
I was nervous and "uptight" about having a permanent tattoo-and of course, regarding pain/discomfort. To my relief, she first applies a topical, lidocaine-type of gel on the brow and then I sat for 20 minutes. It definitely lessened the discomfort.. It was a little ouchy at times, but she was very gentle and moved from one brow to the other to give each area a break. I think it took about 30 minutes to complete, including a few breaks for me. The free follow-up visit a month later was much quicker as she made a few minor adjustments. I was not at all nervous during this visit. Carol also lined my eyelids on the bottom only. This was a little touchy due to the vibration and proximity to the eyes. However, they look terrific. Well worth it! Over the past years I got tired of "filling in eyebrows" each morning. Each day they looked a little different. Now they are even, a beautiful color, distinct enough to "frame my face", but not overdone. Wish I had done this long ago. Carol is a true artist! :-D "

There is nothing in the world that can compare to being weightless with healing movements being applied at the same time. My suggestion is for anyone who is looking to release tension or is carrying emotional memories that this is a therapy that can bring a change in your self-awareness.

" Always Pretty Spa was a great experience! My first appointment had gotten snowed out, so they easily allowed me to change my appointment. I received the Deluxe Pedicure and it was the best one I have ever had. I especially enjoyed lying back with my eyes covered, you could just "disappear." I also got the deluxe manicure. The prices were competitive to mall locations fort he same services, but it was a much better experience! I only had one small issue with the nail polish color I had chosen. I initially chose to get the gel polish in a peachy color, but for some reason the polish was not very good. Instead of getting upset that I did not like it, she happily helped me pick another color (which I ended up liking better) and my nails came out great! Will definitely be booking any and all of my services at Always Pretty from here on out! The location was also calm, not a lot of traffic and the town was very nice! "

She charged me $175 each of the eight times I went for a touch up that first year!! I came to Carol and I now have a renewed sense of self-esteem and confidence. I can't say enough good about her. Her attitude and work are phenomenal. This experience is so much better than my first! I came 1 1/2 hours and would have come five hours to see her. I would give her 10 stars!

" I didn't realize what a difference nice eyebrows could make! Carol gave me permanent eyebrows and I think they make me look younger and balance my face. As I've gotten older, I lost most of my eyebrows. It's gotten harder to put mascara on them to make them look thicker and with my oily skin they would smear after awhile. For my 50th birthday, my daughter talked my family into giving me permanent makeup as a birthday present. I thought it was a strange gift but am now very glad I had it done. Carol is very skilled in making a nice shape and natural look and no more mascara or eyebrow pencil! "

" I went to a permanent makeup artist in the Palmerton area. I was horrified to see the shape and color that was used for my brows. The color and shape didn't match my face.All you saw were these awful brows that were too dark and shaped horribly. I called for a consultation with Carol. She immediately came up with a plan to fix my disastrous brows.She changed the shape and corrected the color to match my skin tone and face shape. I'm no longer embarrassed to go out in public.I recommend Carol to anyone that wants permanent makeup.Not only is she talented, she's a very caring person. :) "

" I just got my first Brazilian wax & I am hear to tell you do not believe all the horror stories. I was nervous, I thought I would scream, cry, & swear but I didn't. Carol was wonderful! She is very personable which makes the whole experience comfortable & the salon setting is relaxing. I was in & out within 45 minutes & the price was as listed ($55). I was afraid that the pain during & after would be so bad that I would never do it again but I am happy to say that I was very wrong. I will be a regular there from now on! Thank you, Carol! :grin "

" I would have written sooner, but I have been so busy today; people wait until Friday for all their HR needs. I applaud you, professionally and personally. I have not stopped talking about the visit to your salon last night. You, the Salon, the African Grey, my Eyebrows....(maybe that is the real reason I am behind today.) I LOVE THEM and so does everyone else. Actually, a few people never noticed, but heard everyone else talking. They look fantastic -- the pain was worth every brush stroke!!! They are hardly red at all and not swollen a bit. No one said a thing until I told them. But the Always Pretty website was up on everyone's computer screen. You are a fantastic woman; I am extremely impressed with your operation, your talent, and you as a person. What I took away from my visit to the Always Pretty Salon was far more than beautiful eyebrows....it was a beautiful experience. In the words of Arnold Schwartzenegger, "I Will Be Back." Thank you, Carol "

" I can't speak highly enough of Carol and her Always Pretty team! They came to my house and did hair and make-up for my 3 daughters and myself for my daughter's wedding. The entire experience was fabulous. The ladies were fun, caring and professional. We showed them what we wanted from a magazine, and they were able to duplicate it to our hearts' delight! Thank you all for starting our day off with a pleasant, fun and beautiful experience!! "

Wedding Day Makeup / Hair
" I was very impressed with Carol and her group of stylist the day of my wedding. We had scheduled to have our hair and makeup done in my hotel room the day of the wedding which made the experience so relaxing and convenient for all. Carol did an amazing job airbrushing my makeup (lasted for two days!) and applying all the other girls makeup. The other stylist did a great job on everyone's hair. My wedding day was rainy and humid and our make up and hair lasted for a day and a half! I would recommend their services to anyone especially for your big day! Thanks to you all! -Melissa "

Wedding Day Makeup / Hair
" Carol & Bett: I have been coming to your salon since March 08 and have always been satisfied. Last week when my daughter and her wedding party came in for their hair & makeup, I was speechless. The hair styles were wonderful and lasted without a "hair out of place" in all that rain and humidity, My daughter (the bride) and I both had our make-up airbrushed on and that is something I would recommemd to everyone. The makeup was beautiful and lasted for 14 hours until I removed it at the end of the night. Thank you again for the wonderful magic that happens at your salon "

" Yes, Mark and I stopped at Always Pretty on our Spring Road Trip! I work in a library that circulates 1.5 mil items/year: DVD-CD cases, pages and pages of dry paper take a toll on my hands and nails--UGLY, DRY, BRITTLE! I bit the bullet--Yes, ugly as they were...get a manicure! Shea butter, protein base coats and more...It's 6 weeks later and my nails have never look this GREAT! Planning time out together, stop at Always Pretty! "

" My wife and I decided to explore the Always Pretty Spa together. What we found there was an unusual atmosphere of elegance and warmth, where style combined readily with comfort. With a massage in this relaxing environment, muscular tightness I have experienced for years just melted away. That night I slept better than I had in years. "

" I had my first visit at the Always Pretty salon/spa and I left in the greatest mood! I first received a wonderful haircut and style by Bett. She really knows what she's doing! She is so nice and makes you feel as if you're a long lost friend! Then, I decided to pamper myself some more with a Wull-stone massage from Carol. The second I walked in the room I felt at ease. The massage was perfect and I felt my lower back pain and stress literally melt away! They've found a new customer in me and my friends and family that I raved to after leaving. Thank you so much! "

" My husband and I enjoyed the most wonderful Valentine's Day couple's massage at Always Pretty. The massage consisted of 1/2 hour of the electric hot rock and 1/2 hour of Swedish full body massage. I told Carol and Anna Lisa that my husband and I went on a cruise and that the massage we just experienced was 100 times better than the one we had while on our cruise! "

" March 2009 will mark the one year anniversary of my permanent eyebrows. I absolutely love them! And I'm still getting compliments. It's fun to get unsolicited compliments from people who don't even know me, and it's equally delightful to have friends and acquaintances I haven't seen in a long time comment that I look brighter, prettier....but they can't put their finger on it. When I tell them I had my eyebrows tattoed, they look closer and say how natural they look. So, Carol (and Bill, my husband for buying me the gift certificate) THANKS! Love, Jean "

Eyebrows - 1 Yr Anniversary!
" I have been getting permanent makeup at Always Pretty Salon and Spa for about 4 years now. What a wonderful, cozy, inviting environment! The salon is cute and comfortable in design, and Carol is so warm, caring and precise during the entire process. You feel like you are "Queen for a Day" while you are under her care. Permanent makeup lasts over a year and makes for a hassle-free alternative to traditional makeup. You always look good, even while asleep! I highly recommend permanent makeup and Always Pretty Salon & Spa. A+ "

" My eyebrows are still adjusting, softening. I'm really liking them and continue to get compliments. My hair dresser (who is an expert stylist and very up on the latest) was very impressed and thought you did a great job. As a matter of fact, she has two other clients that have been waiting for her to see my eyebrows before she could recommend you. As soon as she saw them, she called her two clients with your name and # and told them how great my brows looked. By next weekend, I may have a different idea on what I want you to do....more than likely very little or maybe nothing.. Thanks! You're the best! Jean "

" Thank you, thank you, thank you for the solution I've been searching for all my life! I have always had very long, yet perfectly straight eyelashes, and no amount mascara and curling implements would keep them curled. When I read that you can perm eyelashes, I thought it was too good to be true! Now I LOVE my always-curled eyelashes!!! When I look in the mirror, I no longer see any other facial flaws...just my perfectly curled eyelashes! And recently, people have been complementing me on my eye makeup... when I'm not even wearing any! Thank you again for making my wish come true!! "
