About our Lounge

Amethyst Lounge started in 2014 as a home based business. We then expanded our team in 2016 and relocated to Amity Road in Woodbridge, CT in 2017 from our 2 quaint rooms to our 2200 Sq. Ft. of vintage and tranquility. We have now finalized our beautiful location June 1st, 2019 at the Bradley Road Suites in Woodbridge.

We believe in order to have any balance in your lifestyle, you must stop and take the time for yourself. We pride ourself in all services offered as each of our technicians specialize in their particular scope of practice as well as being a lash academy offering opportunity for those that want to seek a career in eyelash extension application. Being born a crystal child and a collector of stones from an early age, Amethyst was Jussie's very first crystal she purchased for herself as a young adult. She is drawn to the protection of the stone. She considers it, "a safe haven stone", and hopes you can make Amethyst Lounge "Your New Safe Haven..."

The Importance of Health and Safety

Our Commitment to our Environment

We Believe in

Love, Light and Lashes...

All technicians at Amethyst Beauty Lounge take pride in our health and safety protocols. Each of our technicians continue education in their scopes of practices and encourage clients to be made aware of our health and safety guidelines. All technicians hold their current licenses for whichever scope of practice they are in as well as proper insurances. Amethyst Beauty Lounge’s Certificate of Compliance remains current though Quinnipiac Valley Health Department North Haven, which is displayed in our entrance way by the reception desk.

 

Please note that management encourages each of our technicians to follow health and safety protocols among other policies. By law we cannot force contractors or renters to follow our standards, we may only make suggestions in hopes everyone will participate the same way for our clients safety, which is why we choose our team members that share the same values. 

 

While we work in close proximity with our clients, disinfection and disease control is our number one priority here along with providing safely catered services to each client. We abide by all current recommendations through QVHD Health Department and the CDC (such as thorough hand washing from both the client and the technician prior to the start of service). 

 

We use only professional grade products for our services and medical grade cleaners and disinfectants in our facility. We are constantly striving for the best options for our environment to reduce carbon footprint as well, and aim to hold a sustainable and environmentally friendly space.      

 

        OUR PROMISE TO YOU

 

Our promise to you is to be consistently transparent. Our Health and Safety book is available for you to view in the lounge area and holds MSDS or SDS sheets for all products we use in our facility. These are all available to you for viewing and a copy can always be emailed/printed in the event you want to research the product on your own time or if an allergic reaction occurs. If there is a product you are looking to research the information and it has been overlooked and not here, let us know so we can add it to the book.

 

We are very knowledgeable with each product and can answer any questions you may have about the products we use or are curious about our sanitation and safety protocols. Although we feel we practice high standards on a regular basis, we ask if you please see something being done that would not be considered acceptable by management, notify us immediately of the situation by emailing amethystlounge@gmail.com with the subject reading: Safety Concern. 

 

    We thank you for trusting us with your beauty services.     

 

 

 

At Amethyst Beauty Lounge we believe we all can make small changes within our lifestyle that will have a future impact on mother earth. Every little change makes an impact, no matter how small. Around our spa, we offer alternatives to using some disposable items and we properly recycle all items in our space, offer recycling and composting bins as well as offer Ayurvedic and holistic services that are geared towards better mindfulness and living a greener lifestyle. 

 

      For our clients we offer

 

  •   No cell phone use to reduce the transmission of EMS/Radiation frequencies.

  •   Monthly Donations, Giveaways and Events to build up our community.

-     Sustainable retail in minimal / recyclable / repurposed packaging. 

  • Retail from localized vendors and artists/artisans, such as handmade clothing, jewelry, art and furniture.

  • Mindfulness of how all products are shipped/packaged. Bulk orders often placed to minimize the carbon footprint of delivery services.

  • Refillable retail items (with discounts for repurchases with refills).

  • Retail products that you can use in your home that are Non-Toxic.

  • A small discount on services as a thank you if you take public transportation, carpool or come another way other than a vehicle. (Please note carpooling guests that do not have services booked are not permitted in the treatment rooms and must be over the age of 18 and abide by company policies).

  • Quarterly Clothing Swaps to build community and encourage opportunities to try new styles that are seasonal that you might wear once, rather than buying in the store. You also can simply leave or donate clothing for the battered women’s shelter.

 

    What we are striving to add:

  • More community workshops that focus on environmental opportunities such as composting.

  • Beach and Hike Cleanups celebrated with meditative or yoga workshops.

  • and much more.

 

If you have any suggestions to how we can be greener and cleaner in our space, or suggestions for future events that will help build up our community in a positive way, please email us at amethystlounge@gmail.com with the subject reading: A Greener Amethyst.

 

We thank you for supporting our vision and we look forward to helping you move forward to living a greener lifestyle.
