A new med spa recently opened in Ft. Mitchell to have you looking and feeling like new with their aesthetic services and medical massages.

Oasis Med Spa offers a variety of services including facials and massages.

Great things happen with the right partnership, and that’s exactly what happened for Mary Jo Dahlhoff and Karen Payne Hill.

The two partnered up last year and opened the doors to Oasis Med Spa, located just over the river in Ft. Mitchell. Dahlhoff is a listened cosmetologist and aesthetician, and she provides all the aesthetic services at the spa. Hill is the licensed massage therapist who focuses on providing a variety of massage services.

“I’ve been working in spa salons for about 30 years now and my dream came true when Karen Hill and I opened Oasis last year,” Dahlhoff says, adding that they offer everything from facials, waxing, brow/lash tinting, body treatments and micro-exfoliations — a favorite of Dahlhoff’s.

Dahlhoff says their facials are among their most popular treatments. “My anti-aging facial is my favorite to do and see good results,” she says.

Prices for facials run from $38 for an Express Facial to $98 for the Anti-Aging treatment. Derma planing is $58 and $128 with a facial. Massage offerings include deep tissue, sports massage, Microcurrent Point Stimulation, Swedish Massage and Medical Massage. Prices range from $40 for a 30-minute Swedish Massage to $135 for a 90-minute Medical Massage. Packages can also be purchased for discounted package prices.

Oasis Med Spa is located at 2481 Dixie Highway in Ft Mitchell, Kentucky. Call 859-342-7700 or “like” their Facebook page to learn more.

See how students at Gateway Community and Technical College are practicing their techniques outside of the classroom, and gaining hands-on (literally!) learning experience.

Emerge Hair Studio and Spa in downtown Covington is a student-run business in the college’s Professional Services building.

There’s nothing quite like getting hands-on learning experience. That’s why students at Gateway Community and Technical College are getting to do just that at Emerge Hair Studio and Spa.

Emerge Hair Studio and Spa is a student-run business in the college’s Professional Services building in downtown Covington. Emerge had a soft opening in June 2015 with its massage services. The grand opening will occur in late August and by then all of its services such as hair cut, color and style, manicures, pedicures, waxing, and facials will be offered.

“Emerge was created to provide a state-of-the-art learning center for our students and a service to Covington,” says Michelle Sjogren, Gateway’s Director of Communications. Although Emerge has only been opened since June, it has already received five star reviews on its Facebook page. People seem to agree that the prices are unbeatable, Sjogren says, as a 60 minute massage is priced at $30.

“We envision the business and college educational programs growing as Emerge’s reputation grows,” explains Sjogren. “We are excited to give our students experience with executing a business, as well as the services performed. We hope this will inspire them to launch their own businesses in the industry.”

The Emerge logo was designed by R. Eugene Heard, a Covington resident and designer. His concept is inspired by the ripple created from a drop of water. “Like a single drop creates ripples, everything starts from each student’s hand,” says Heard. “For the student, Emerge Hair Studio and Spa will be the place to learn how to use techniques to provide great moments. The identity represents the power of single student.”

Emerge Hair Studio and Spa is located at 438 Scott Boulevard, Covington. To learn more, “like” them on Facebook and stay tuned for the official Emerge website to launch soon.
