Owner of Minx Beauty Bar Jenifer Flannery is excited to provide services not currently available in Seeley Lake including spray tanning, full body waxing, facials, eye lash extensions and lash lifts. The Minx Beauty Bar is located in the Lazy Pine Mall and will be hosting their Grand Opening Jan. 28 and 29.

SEELEY LAKE – Minx Beauty Bar is holding its Grand Opening Jan. 28-29 in the Lazy Pine Mall. It offers sunless tanning, full body waxing, facials, eye lash extensions and lash lifts. Owner Jenifer Flannery and co-worker Krisy Stout look forward to bringing services to the community that are not currently available and making clients feel good about themselves.

Flannery is from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. As a teenager she worked with her mother who owned a salon. Later Flannery went into the business herself. She has owned her own salon for the past 20 years.

"I've always worked for myself and I love giving back," said Flannery. "It's nice when people leave with a smile on their face. Giving someone a tan [even just a light glow] that has a sun allergy and is as white as the walls just peps them up."

Stout is a licensed aesthetician. She graduated from the Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics in Tempe, Ariz. She is trained in several skin modalities with additional training in advanced exfoliation techniques, corrective peels and has advanced training from Skin Script, an Arizona-based skin care company. Born and raised in Montana, Stout currently lives in Missoula, Mont. with her husband and children.

Last year, Flannery and her husband were looking for log homes and their searches kept bringing them back to the Seeley Lake area.

"We were just driving through on our way up to Canada," said Flannery. "We were visiting friends in Missoula and [we] thought, oh, we should go check out this little town. We were driving through in August and decided to sell everything and move here [in October]. We fell in love with it."

Flannery quickly realized that services in her industry were lacking in Seeley Lake.

"I wanted to cater to a need and be a part of the community and give back," said Flannery. "I'm passionate about it. It's what I love to do."

Sunless tanning is the basis of Minx Beauty Bar. Flannery started doing spray tanning in 2002. She has eight different shades so she can custom color anyone, any skin tone and any ethnicity. The tan lasts seven-12 days, is non-toxic, hyper allergic, oil and alcohol free, unscented and dermatologist tested.

"Sunless tanning is healthier than a bed and in the summer if people don't like to go in the sun, they can still get a nice glow," said Flannery. "Also those coming in for the summer for their vacation may still be pretty pale. Bring them in for a couple of services and they can still look really good out on the water or whatever event that they've got."

Flannery said she provides sunless tanning for men, women, fitness competitors, weight-loss groups, golfers, wedding parties, tattoo and scar cover-ups, cheerleaders, dance classes, stage performances and Halloween costumes.

"I've done it all," said Flannery. "We pretty much cater to everyone."

Stout will be offering facials, waxing and eye lashes. Her goal is to help her clients meet their skin care needs while providing them a relaxing and rejuvenating experience.

Stout specializes in results oriented skin care and her passion for knowledge in the ever changing industry ensures that she stays informed of the latest technologies and cutting edge ingredients in skin care, which she loves sharing with her clients.

Flannery and her husband have been working with local carpenter Michael Triplett for the past two months renovating their new office in the Lazy Pine Mall next to the Moose River Bar & Grill. Many of the furnishings and decorations she purchased at the Seeley Lake Second Hand Store since she strongly believes in supporting other local businesses.

"We want to keep the prices where they are still fair but profitable. We want people to be able to afford it, stay in town and keep those dollars in the town with the small businesses," said Flannery.

Minx Beauty Bar will offer an organic body care line called Love My Scrub and Skin Script. Flannery hopes to bring in other products including makeup, hair care and swim wear as well as anything else that is requested by her clients.

When Flannery is not working she loves spending time with her husband, exploring the town and going on adventures. She enjoys the outdoors, her two dogs a Chihuahua and a Puggle, travelling and engaging with people.

Minx Beauty Bar's Grand Opening is Saturday and Sunday Jan. 28 and 29 from 12-6 p.m. Flannery and Stout will be giving $5 spray tans and $5 eye brow, upper lip or under arm waxing. Attendees can also enjoy refreshments, a goodie bag and prize drawings.

Minx Beauty Bar is fully licensed and open by appointment only. Call 406-404-MINX [6469]. There will also be online booking available soon on the business website: Minx Beauty Bar can also be found on Facebook.
