Anyone who reads my blog knows I am a big fan of Hylton Hundt Salon & Spa…it has been my “hairapy” for years. But I have to say in the last few years Hylton Hundt has really upped their game and it’s showing. Every time I drop by for a visit or appointment, every chair downstairs is filled and there is a calm, happy, energy filling the air.
But what you might not know about is what’s going on UPSTAIRS at Hylton Hundt’s Spa. I’ve often told you about my trade secrets in antique shopping and design work. Well, this is something you really need to know about if you don’t already. Actually, it’s some ONE you need to know about: Hylton Hundt’s resident esthetician, Lauren Beecher, who offers an impressive array of facial treatments, including classic facials, micro-dermabrasion and oxygen treatments, as well as make-up consultations and lessons. And let me tell you…she is THE REAL DEAL in skincare and has built an impressive clientele, including the likes of design diva, Bunny Williams!
Lauren creates a calm, relaxing and regenerating space that even calms ME down–even during my most stressful times of the year (think Christmas and Tent Sales). In fact, I just finished a series of oxygen treatments (which is a natural alternative to Botox and fillers that can harden under your skin). And, I have to say, my skin feels fantastic. With 35 years of learning, Lauren continues working to keep current on trends. She uses Yonka of Paris skincare products (a 62 year old company that has a natural plant based philosophy using essential oils).

As a woman of a certain age who chose to ignore the indicators thereof, at a point there was no excusing what I saw in the mirror as the result of the LED bulbs. About six weeks ago, I decided to have my too long hair cut, and went to Hylton Hundt’s website for their number. (I have been a client of theirs for many, many years.)
When I saw that their new site referred to ‘SPA,’ I called immediately for an appointment for the haircut, but also to ask about the spa. My appointment was arranged so that I could have one of the Signature Facials and then go downstairs to have my hair cut. I am hooked!
Lauren made me instantly comfortable and elegantly analyzed the condition of my skin before she began the facial. To her, there are many good ways to improve the impact of time and weather on your skin, and I have tried a few by now, including the MICRO-DERMABRASION and a series of four of the Oxygen facials a week apart. The changes in my skin are clear enough to me that I have already signed up for a continuation of the oxygen treatments every other week for four weeks, and other facials in the weeks between, if we can all swing the time.
Between Lauren’s skill and experience, and the YonKa products, I really feel that I am in good hands. I should also mention that the extras that come along during the facials (hand or feet or upper body massages) are wonderful. It’s a fun time at the salon, and you are among friends. I highly recommend indulging in their services – across the board. ~ Kerry Madigan (Partner, Rosenthal Wine Merchants)

I got my first facial with Lauren two years ago at Hylton Hundt salon in Millerton. I was pleasantly surprised to hear about all the skincare offerings at the salon and Lauren Beecher, the specialist who provides all the skin care there, suggested booking a Signature Classic facial as my first treatment. This would allow her to clean and detoxify my skin while assessing my needs so we could make a plan for the future. Having always considered myself rather “low-maintenance”, I was somewhat reluctant to start a skin care regime that I could not keep up or afford, but Lauren allayed by fears and assured me it would be completely approachable. I booked an appointment right away and have never looked back. Lauren uses YonKa product line from France and provided me with great advice for how to create and maintain a skin care regime that suited my lifestyle/budget. From the deep cleansing facials to microdermabrasion and oxygen therapy, I have been able to take advantage of all that the salon has to offer. I treat myself to seasonal microdermabrasion treatments, wonderful products and some amazing oxygen therapy. The results are incredible and I have seen a tangible difference in my skin’s tone and texture. Lauren is a proponent of aging naturally and gracefully and I deeply appreciate this philosophy. I would highly recommend booking an appointment and treating yourself to some holiday pampering. ~ Dana Simpson (Designer, Hammertown)
Lauren, quite simply, is a treasure to be shared! I often give Hylton Hundt Gift Certificates to friends and colleagues as holiday or birthday gifts.
To purchase yours, just drop by the salon or call ahead and they’ll have your certificate waiting for you to pick up.
