established in 2017


Welcome to Richmond's first open-concept beauty bar specializing in skin, brows, and lashes!  Think of us as your very own personal beauty concierge.  

I love all things beauty and all things Southern! About three years ago, I determined there was a niche I could fill in the beauty industry. Remember Truvy’s salon in Steel Magnolias? Well, with skin care in lieu of hair care, that's just what I've created! Just a bit more modern.  Think of the environment Truvy created…it was a gathering spot that exuded not only Southern hospitality, but also Southern grace and elegance.

I am a devoted and faithful beauty enthusiast who is ALWAYS up for trying a new service or a new spa. With my past experience in running a successful insurance company combined with my love of all things beauty, I knew I could offer something different! 

Four things occurred to me: Beauty CAN be affordable without compromising luxury or quality. Beauty services CAN be done without taking up most of your day. Amazing estheticians are life changing. Lastly, great products do make a difference. Ta-da! Sugar & Hive Beauty Bar was born!  

My single most important mission is to offer services that are driven by results and to make everyone feel beautiful with glowing and healthy skin, amazing brows and lashes that will make most people wonder if they're real or not!  

You can read more about my mission and the why behind the brand on the blog!

I look forward to meeting you!
