Right in the beginning we didn’t have access to it you know it was difficult to find it . So we took the extra weeks to really stockpile and stock up,”
says Ellen Pino, owner of Avant Tous Beauty Bar & Spa.
“I’m very excited. It’s been a long time coming and I hope there is a pint up need for a lot of body work out there. I’ve got a core group of my
