Vendor Highlights: Head 2 Toe Mobile Spa
After meeting with Jenny Perillo, owner of Head 2 Toe Mobile Spa and avid tree-hugger, I had a spring in my step and smile on my face – and I didn’t even get a manicure or facial. That afternoon it was just the two of us like-minded gals chatting about makeup, nail polish, and lead-filled lipstick.
For years, Jenny worked in a salon as a nail technician while having no idea about the chemicals she was breathing in and applying on people’s bodies each day. After attending an OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) sponsored event on the health and environmental effects of working in the nail tech business, she couldn’t go back to those surroundings. It was her newfound passion for wellness and the environment that fueled her to open Head 2 Toe in 2006. Since then she has grown from just herself to 20 other service providers and counting.
So what is a mobile spa? Sometimes when you can’t get to the spa yourself, the spa will just have to go to you. That’s what Head 2 Toe does; they set up your own personal spa in your living room, office, or wherever you need them. This experience is great for groups (bachelorette spa party, anyone?) and can be completely customized to what the client wants (or also done in a certain theme). Since safety is the upmost concern, Head 2 Toe uses all-natural products that are free of harmful toxins and chemicals.
It was clear to me from the start that Jenny loves what she does. Her goal is to provide excellent service and make the client feel great inside and out. They truly are an “eco-chic mobile beauty company on a mission to change the world one foot at a time.”
