Garrettsville  – Step into Facet Salon & Spa at the Total Lifetime Care complex at 1 Memory Lane, and you almost feel like Dorothy entering the Emerald City. Only it’s not garish. You just feel like you’re not in Kansas — or Garrettsville — any more. Instead, the Tuscan-inspired earth tones, stone- and wood- accented interiors and leather furnishings create a warm, welcoming atmosphere for this upscale oasis.

That’s by design, say co-owners and Garrettsville natives Shane Andrews and John Paul Mitchell Systems stylist and national educator Rachelle King. Facet Salon & Spa was a name both partners agreed upon when discussing the many dimensions of wellness that TLC provides to the community: Andrews Eye Care provided by Shane’s father, optometrist Tim Andrews; the family physicians’ practice headed by Shane’s mother, Annette Andrews, MD; and the TLC fitness center.

“Facet is the final piece of the puzzle, as we envisioned it when we first established TLC nine years ago,” says Andrews. “We’ve got the medical side, the feel-good fitness side, and now the final polishing, so you can leave here healthy, fit and pretty, too.”
The full-service salon and day spa offer options for the entire family, including fresh color and cuts for women, cuts and shampoos for guys and kids, styling for special occasions, manicures, pedicures, facials, spray tanning, tanning beds, massage rooms, and even two infrared saunas for detoxification and weight loss. In addition to Paul Mitchell hair products, Facet’s facial line is Bio Elements, and nail services feature OPI and Shellac.

King says the salon’s highly-trained group of stylists, make-up artists and nail technicians comprise a “a multi-faceted team who will make your visit to Facet an amazing experience. We cater to many dimensions of beauty, relaxation and refreshment, where each guest is a gem.”

King has been a stylist since 1992, when she graduated from Maplewood Career Center. An entrepreneur by nature, it wasn’t long before she was manager of Golden Mirror salon at the Sky Plaza. In 2007, King branched out and established a hip, new Paul Mitchell focus salon in the historic Ohio City neighborhood of Cleveland. With 14 stylists at that location, the Studio has earned media coverage in every major national salon industry magazine, King says. In 2010, Crain’s Cleveland Business named King one of its Top 40 Under 40. She recently departed Golden Mirror and now is focusing on Facet, the Studio, and her national training circuit with Paul Mitchell.
