A new day spa, The Annex by LK & Grey, is opening right next door– across the breezeway to be precise – to Studio 4 Salon. It is the brainchild of Studio 4 owner, Laura Keita-Wiemeyer.
So where did the name The Annex come from? There’s a story behind the name, explains Laura:
The elementary school I was at from 1st-3rd grade, had the original Annex. The Annex was an extension of the school and served kids with special needs. I loved going over there and being with the other kids, and I loved that our school encouraged the interaction.
I have no idea how I remember some of this stuff, but I was taken with a young man with black hair, black horn rimmed glasses, and black Chuck Taylor’s. We’re talking 1976 here. How popular could that have been? He was way ahead of his time. I’m most certain his name was Victor. I’ve been thinking about him a lot lately.
While my Annex will look and feel very different, the spirit of what I learned there has never left me and I’m carrying it forward into this new project.
The new spa space is an extension of the Studio 4 salon, yet a completely different vibe. With the spirit of the first Annex as my guide, our spa encompasses some of my earliest memories and my love for people, and is a place of healing, respite, inclusion, diversity, love, compassion, support, and also joy!
Before our new day spa is open to the public, our clients and special guests are invited to preview our new space on Thursday, July 8th from 4pm-7pm. Meet our spa professionals and learn about their services. Plus, lite bites, bubbles, a live DJ and an amazing raffle prize! Please RSVP to be entered into the raffle. We can't wait to see you!
