Chrissie does facials, waxing and makeup application. “I specialize in the perfect eyebrow,” she said. She has five years of experience waxing eyebrows. “I love the strategy of it. I find the right shape for everyone’s face. People just get so excited.”
Ashley is the nail technician. She moved from interior decorating, to decorating cakes in a bakery, then to her work as a nail tech. “It was time. I wanted to have more of a relaxed environment,” she said.
“It’s calm and comfortable,” added Chrissie, who is a graduate of Capilo’s in Augusta.
“You use your hands and feet every day. Most see this as a treat, but it’s keeping them healthy. They get so neglected,” said Ashley about manicures and pedicures. Ashley uses a variety of polishes, but her favorite is Zoya, which is free of 10 different chemicals typically found in nail polish. She offers a variety of nail art designs. There is also a color-changing shellac which changes with the temperature. Clients can partake in a paraffin-alternative hand dip called Eco-fin, that is made of soy, coconut oil and other natural ingredients. Natural Beauty Day Spa does not offer acrylic nails.

“Ashley is super sanitary. She’s the cleanest nail tech I’ve ever seen,” said Chrissie. She uses tub liners for the pedicures and uses stick on files rather than plastic ones that can’t be sanitized.
“I love my clients. I have the best ones,” said Chrissie. Clients have followed them from the surrounding areas. Some are from Windham, Portland Cumberland and even as far away as Biddeford.
“Eyebrows, as with nails, you see clients every few weeks. You get to know the whole family and develop a relationship,” said Chrissie.
Chrissie uses a skin care line called Bioelements, which is all natural and results oriented. “It took a long time to pick a line (for the spa),” she said. She customizes a moisturizer and helps clients with what they want for their skin. “Picking skin care can be really confusing. It’s so awesome when you wake up and your skin looks nice. You feel empowered,” Chrissie said. “It sounds superficial, but it’s a nice way to start the day. People notice that something is different.”
The makeup is for fun. Chrissie can put together a night-on-the-town look or create a special look for a special event like a wedding. “I connect with people really well. I can make them look like themselves only more beautiful,” she said.
Facials and massages are held in a private room. Massages are done by Briana Henes and she offers a menu of services including polarity.
The sisters chose Windham for their business because it was a good central location. “There’s a lot going on in Windham. It’s my go to town,” Ashley said.
