B'Spa beauty shop opening

Joanna Romanzo is setting up Lipstick N Lashes, her special-occasion hair, makeup and nail services studio, at 76 Front St. in Ballston Spa.

A certified cosmetologist, Romanzo has run her business for years, first out of her home and most recently out of Above and Beyond Hair and Makeup Studio in Saratoga Springs.

The move to Ballston Spa, Romanzo’s hometown, puts her on one of the village’s shop-lined thoroughfares in a larger space, which she is currently in the process of beautifying with her signature, feminine flair.

The low-lit, pink-and-brown-swathed boutique has two chairs each for hair and makeup services, plus two pedicure chairs in a back room. Bridal makeup and hair-styling services account for the majority of Romanzo’s business, but the new location will allow her to offer haircuts, hair coloring, eyelash extensions and body waxing in addition to her nail and makeup services.

Lipstick N Lashes has 10 employees.

Jewelry, handbags and the owner’s handmade hair accessories are also for sale in the shop.

Pre-wedding or day-of services are available at the studio or at the customer’s location. Romanzo travels around the Capital Region and has gone as far as Vermont and Massachusetts armed with brushes and blushes and her team of stylists.

“I like the fact that I make brides laugh on their wedding day because they might be nervous or stressed,” she said. “I just want to make them feel totally special.”

An open house is planned from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 2. Wine and cheese, demonstrations of services and giveaways will be available.
