PAMPER YOURSELF FROM HEAD TO TOE
The weather is getting nice, and now is the time to pull out your summer sandals and showcase your perfectly pedicured feet. If your tootsies are suffering from the dry winter, don’t worry because Linda Hoge at Hair Hunters in Uptown Susanville has spring specials on spa pedicures and manicures so you can look and feel your best.

“People don’t realize how important foot care is, but once they’ve been pampered in my relaxing pedicure chair, they’re usually repeat customers,” said Hoge.

Sure, you can try to do your own nail care, but it probably won’t be as enjoyable. If you need a little extra pampering, call Linda to book your appointment today at 257-4247.
