In need of a day of pampering?

Taylor Edgar has opened Perfectly Polished Day Spa, 140 E. Main St., in downtown John Day.

She offers customized services for nails and skin, with everything from express manicures, pedicures and facials for a quicker visit to in-depth services such as “Pampered Paradise” and other packages.

Pampered Paradise includes a deluxe facial with décolleté massage of the neckline, a deluxe manicure and pedicure, which includes foot bath, massage, scrub, callus removal and polish.

Other services include nail art and French tips. Her gel polish lasts two weeks without chipping and dries right after application.

“There’s something about coming in and getting a service done,” Edgar said. “It makes you feel refreshed.”

She attended Grant Union High School in John Day, earning her GED a year early.

When she graduated from Phagan’s in Bend, she passed the state boards in Salem and began working at Bend Day Spa at the Old Mill District the next day.

After working there for about one year, she made the return to her home town, opening her own business on May 2.

“I love John Day and decided to move back and go out on my own,” she said. “I like the lifestyle, and everyone’s friendly. I like seeing all the familiar faces.”

Edgar said, while growing up, she was happy to give her friends manicures.

“I thought it would be fun to have a career that you actually enjoy,” she said. “I like that it’s a different thing every day. Everyone has different styles, and I like helping them express their personality and style.”

The day spa is open from noon to 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. Sundays are by appointment only.

Gift certificates are available to purchase in any amount.

For more information or an appointment, call Edgar at 541-620-4966.
