Wow, It Happened Again

Face Value wins #1 Beauty Salon Award

We hardly know what to say. When we came in 3rd last year in the Albemarle Family Readers poll of best salons in the entire area we were just amazed. After all, we had only been open a little over a year. But to find out this year we were voted the #1 salon in the area, well, that is just over the top for us! Thank you. We have the best clients (fans) in the world. We sure love you all and appreciate the vote of confidence that you have given to us. What a gift. We so appreciate it.

Introducing Brisa Gel Nails

Go beyond standard nail salon nails

Face Value is introducing Brisa Gels to our line of nail services. Brisa gels are truly hypo-allergenic and odor-free.

Just because nails have a shiny finish doesn't mean they are Gel. A true gel nail product has the consistency of honey, it must be cured in an UV light, and it has NO ODOR. If your nails are created by combining a liquid and powder, you have acrylic nails. But we can help you make the transition to healthy Brisa Nails!

Yary Lam, Face Value Salon Educational Director

Yary Lam becomes Face Value's new Educational Director

For those that know Yary, this accomplishment will come as no surprise. From the beginning Yary has been an avid learner. She wants to know all she can about beauty services and the products that support them. In 2009 Yary became certified in Ouidad hair cutting techniques and products (for curly hair). She is sought out by clients with curly hair all across the state of Virginia for her skills and expertise.

Most recently Yary became a certified trainer for the Lanza color and hair product line that Face Value offers. The Lanza line, with its commitment to healing, repairing and strengthening, is a line that Yary believes in. If you have an opportunity for a consultation with Yary you will see for yourself the knowledge and passion she brings in her quest for your hair to look and feel its very best.

As a certified Lanza Educator she will be training stylists about Lanza around the region. As Educational Director she will be insuring the clients of Face Value that they are in well trained hands no matter which stylist they are seeing. That is the goal of Face Value, to offer the best team possible to our clients and Yary is now playing a major role in leading that Team. Well done, Yary Lam.
