A new salon offering organic products and “green” spa treatments is now open in downtown Saratoga Springs. Circle of Friends Beauty Centre, located on the ground floor of 517 Broadway, provides traditional salon services with a holistic twist.

Warm and inviting, the salon’s eco-chic decor mirrors its philosophy. “Everything in here – with the exception of that door,” says Lisa Dorvee, the salon’s owner, “is recycled, re-purposed, reused. And that’s kind of the philosophy of the products that we have here. They’re very earth friendly and just phenomenal quality organic ingredients.”

Lisa Dorvee, owner of Circle of Friends Beauty Centre, stands at the salon’s front desk, which was made by repurposing a set of bay windows.

And by everything, Dorvee means everything: upcycled lighting fixtures, a checkout area fashioned from an antique bay window, and glossy hanging shelves – actually made of leftover flooring from Dorvee’s house – neatly lined with a large selection of organic products, including popular Aveda, Surface, and Goldwell brands.

The Centre welcomes guests with cucumber infused water and an attentive staff.

Aside from botanically-based products, Circle of Friends uses aromatherapy, pure plant essences, energy work, and even stress evaluations to help tailor each experience specifically for the client. So while you can stop by for a routine facial, anti-aging treatment, or wax, no two sessions are ever the same.

What clients can expect during every visit, however, is the same level of attentive service and satisfaction. The name, “Circle of Friends,” denotes how one-on-one relationships are so essential in the beauty industry. Dorvee wants every guest to feel welcome, relaxed, and to trust that they’ll be satisfied with the results.

“Instant gratification is such an important part of the process,” says Dorvee.

That being said, she wants people to know that visible results can be achieved without aggressive treatments, harsh chemicals, and potentially damaging side effects.

Circle of Friends Beauty Centre has a retail selection of organic Aveda, Surface, and Goldwell products.

Visit Circle of Friends Beauty Centre for skin care, waxing services, makeup application, organic beauty products, and coming soon: locally-sourced handmade jewelry and accessories. Facials start at $60, waxing at $15.
