    Allure Day Spa and Hair Design, LLC                                                                                                                Alaska’s premier full service Salon & Spa – Anchorage, Alaska

    April 1, 1992 –
    Kari Hall and Susan Hoedel created Allure Day Spa and Hair Design, what is now Alaska’s largest full-service salon and day spa in Alaska! 
    Before officially opening its doors, Kari and Susan co-leased a space and shared business acumen that would prove itself hugely beneficial within their Cosmetology practices & long-term career goals. These ladies were forward-looking and very smart as they supported each other’s clientele by heavily referring clients to one another, ultimately creating the foundation of Allure’s success.  Once the success was recognizable, it only made sense to join forces in the union and creation of Allure Day Spa and Hair Design, LLC.
    Hair design was Kari’s specialty (and still is since she’s still practicing!), and Susan provided an array of esthetic & nail services at this time. Their first space together mentioned above was 900 square feet, located on the 3rd floor of an office building in downtown Anchorage.
    During this time, Allure’s “family” consisted of six employees – and everybody chipped in to bring laundry home each evening! Allure remained at this location for five years until a larger space was desired.  In 1996, the purchase and remodel began at a space that was previously a hardly noticed pawn shop.  The remodel took nearly 10 months as Kari and Susan continued working hard and serving their clientele. Needless to say, every other moment outside of serving clients was spent creating Allure’s new location: 142 West Fifth Avenue.                    

    By 2001, 2,000 square feet was added to the building, making a grand total of 6,000 beautiful & purposefully designed square feet. The ambiance was designed to appeal & cater to any client that wanted an “escape from the real world” while being treated like royalty & enjoying top-of-the-top luxury salon and spa services.
    In 2018, all salon & spa services imaginable are made possible by 50 hard-working employees. Allure’s full-service spa is equipped to serve a magnitude of client desires, and consists of two floors including 12 treatment rooms, two beautiful Vichy rooms, four Pedicure stations & two Manicure stations. 

    To this day – Allure Day Spa and Hair Design remains strong and holds numerous awards of recognition for its outstanding performance & local contributions;  Allure has given over $1 million back to Alaska’s community and continues to strive to give back to the people that have made Allure possible.

    Allure has carried Guinot’s professional & retail product line for its 26 years of business!  As you can tell, Susan (Esthetician/Co-owner) has remained loyal to Guinot’s consistently high quality brand over the years.  Each of Allure’s facial treatments follow Guinot’s protocol and foundation for product recommendations made by our Estheticians.  Allure currently offers the following professional facial treatments by possible by Guinot:
    • Aromatics Facial
    • Beaute Neuve Facial
    • Liftosome Energy Facial
    • Age Summum Facial (AKA “Age Defying Facial” known to Allure’s clientele)
    • Classic Hydradermie Facial
    • Allure’s Signature Treatment: ULTIMATE Facial (Combination of Beaute Neuve and Classic Hydradermie treatments)
    • Hydradermie Lift Facial

    "The Guinot education I received throughout the various phases of employment here at Allure (with numerous Guinot professionals) expanded my knowledge of the line, but my professional, hands-on experience is what truly & inevitably led me to fall in love with it!  I’m proud to say that I have nothing but positive, influential recollections of Guinot’s team, expertise & true attention to the fine details; these fine details are what separate a good skin care line – from a great one."Amber Ingersol, Spa Manager
