Resumption of the Godfrey Salon, addition of services


GODFREY — After the past two years of social distancing, owner, massage therapist and makeup artist Kaysee Johnson has resumed nail tech services and added more to her full-service salon and spa.

Bliss Salon and Spa at 3047 Godfrey Road in Godfrey does it all: hair, makeup, massage, skincare — and now Reiki. Physical therapist and Reiki practitioner Kelly McCormick joined Bliss on Monday. She also offers guided meditation and stretching.

“She’s really good at what she does,” Johnson said.

Manicures and pedicures are back with Bekah Dedear, who also specializes in lash lifts and eyelash extensions. Dedear is a licensed esthetician and nail technician. Bliss had offered the service in the past, but not in the past five to six years.

“A few things have happened since COVID with makeup,” Johnson said. “People work from home, don’t go to the office and have gotten used to not wearing makeup. But a lot of people are at least wearing foundation and skincare. Even if you don’t wear makeup, skincare of the skin are important.

“Another thing that happened, everyone got so used to ordering everything online,” she said. “But we’re still here, still have a full line of cosmetics, and we hope customers will keep coming back and shopping locally.”

Makeup and skin care consultations are a free service; with a small staff, Johnson asks clients to call to book consultations to avoid wait times.

Johnson also added new foundation formulas from BareMinerals. Bliss carries the entire line and is the salon’s signature makeup application brand. BareMinerals is known for its loose powder foundation. Bliss now offers three different formulas, as well as the powder formula.

“For mature skin, liquid is a much better option, and we have three new liquid or gel formulas,” Johnson said.

Bliss’ services include esthetician and facial services, lash and brow services, as well as hair styling and coloring services. The company has won several community awards, including Best of the Best and Small Business of the Month from the RiverBend Growth Association.
