Nevada County has been my home since 1989 and I opened my first business here.
Throughout my career as an aesthetician and massage therapist helping clients to look and feel great has been a joy. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting the most incredible people over the years and have felt blessed by their patronage and friendship. It is a beautiful thing when passion and career come together!
I spent the first three years as an aesthetician and massage therapist gaining hands on experience.
In 1990 I decided to open my first business, Simply ahhh… in Grass Valley. Ten years later the salon evolved into this area’s first true day spa. I was proud of the success my business had achieved. Then in 2006 a new opportunity presented itself and I relocated to England for 8 years. I lived and worked in a lovely little village called Yaxley in Cambridgeshire. Although I enjoyed the culture and met many wonderful people, I was missing family and friends. My heart brought me back to Nevada County in the spring of 2014.
The desire to resume offering facials, massages and waxing was the motivation behind Lovely Tones Skincare by Colleen.
I gave a lot of thought as to what I would call my new business. The name would need to connect to each woman’s own special beauty. Lovely is a word commonly used in England to describe someone who is beautiful and graceful and Tones is in reference to skin’s tone, firmness, color, vibrancy. Hence, Lovely Tones Skincare felt just right and most importantly, I was happy to be working in Nevada County again.
Your services will be in a lovely restful setting.
Services are offered in a modern, quiet and private location within Lake of The Pines; easy to get to from the corner of Hwy 49 and Combie Rd, halfway between Auburn and Grass Valley.
In conclusion, I would like to take a moment to thank all my friends, former clients and colleagues. You have given me the best 16 years of my career here in Nevada County and I look forward to seeing some of you again and to meeting new clients as well.
