South York Salon
Hi my name is Kimberly Acworth
Welcome to the world of Indulge – a Colour Salon 180º Degrees from Ordinary™ – and home to our exclusive line of body care products called Indulge Pure Originals™, as well as our newest venture, Indulge Luxury Imports™.
When I first got involved in this fascinating business, I attended beauty school as a means to pay for a business degree. I wanted to be the CEO of a Fortune 500 company. After working for some really great salons, however, I saw a missing link in the beauty industry – and visualized Indulge. I wanted to take the specialty of hair color to a completely new level of expertise.
So I studied everywhere and when I could – in the U.S. (even Alaska) and Europe – to learn more defined techniques in the art of color correction. I mastered blonding so I could produce specific shades, tints and highlights without the damage that can sometimes occur. In fact today I absolutely love fixing orange brassy hair. Bring it on!
In 2017, I became certified in Organic Hair Colour Systems. The science behind organic color is based on keeping the hair healthy without the wheat, gluten free and utilizing plant vs chemicals to process the hair. The hair is significantly healthier over the longevity of the hair.
I’ve also been taught by the best in the French and Japanese hair cutting systems, as well as French Balayage Highlights (which essentially means hair painting). And when it comes to hair extensions I think we are unsurpassed.
Along the way I’ve had some great experiences. . .competing in a Fastest Foiling contest in L.A.. . .personally working with celebrity style-maker Frederic Fekkai in New York City on advance coloring techniques (yes, he’s that gorgeous in person!) . . .taking art classes to fine-tune my own color perceptions. I’m also proud of the fact I’ve been featured in Modern Salon Magazine and Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide.
Our success is nurtured by continuing education for every member of the Indulge team. We’ve flown in educators and renowned stylists from Paris, Scotland, Canada, Atlanta and New York. Plus I personally train each Indulge team member, honing every technique from the shampoo sink to custom designing color solutions, and testing to ensure each step is fully mastered.
Every stylist understands what it takes to work at Indulge. We take pride in our passion and creativity, take time to listen, and only use the most advanced, safest and best products available in our industry. We work as one, so our clients can expect consistent, professional consultation and service. . .and results they will love. That’s our guarantee.
To stay in tune with the world of business I also attend advanced classes, have numerous certificates from Strategies Publishing on salon management, and am fortunate to have mentors from a variety of different backgrounds – including those Fortune 500 companies! I would never have been successful without the true support of my team of business professionals who make us look good. . .thanks to their expertise.
All of us at Indulge hope you enjoy our website. Come back often, as we’re always adding new information and advice about products and trends.
See you soon!
My name is Sarah – Stylist, Brow Connossieur, Waxer
I’ve been doing hair for over 12 years. Graduate of Empire Beauty School, York, Pa. My passion is to express my creative side and really grow as a stylist. Not that I wasn’t happy doing haircuts only but I wanted to extend my education for highlighting, playing with different hair color trends, low lighting and providing the overall look for my clients. I’m pretty happy all the time. You won’t here me complaining because I keep my personal business to myself. When you sit in my chair it is all about you. If you like someone that is dependable and enjoys a long term relationship then I’m your girl. Most of my clients have known me since grade school. When I’m not at work I love spending time being outdoors hiking, biking, playing at the park, and beach trips!
You can spot me a mile away with my many shades of silver grey hair, blonde hair, rainbow colors, highlighting multi-tonal colors feeds my passion for hair. If you love change, great conversation and creating the ultimate look then we will get along great. Men’s clipper cutting is fun for me. Being neat and meticulous with your hair is what the concern should be about so don’t be afraid because you can count on me for consistency with your haircuts.
Please bring pictures of what you want your hair to look like. The pictures are a great idea that we can work together on with your haircut and color concepts. We will spend time on the consultation before we start, talk about your beauty budget then get to work. If you need your extensions maintained, we can move up those extensions. If you need your frizzies gone, then let me know because I can take care of those to make your life easier in the before getting ready for work with the Brazilian Keratin treatment. Going from brown to blonde in a day, bring your beverage, phone and patience to get to your blonde. Most times we can do it in a day but if we can’t we might have to multi step your hair process. I do a lot of double process blondes safely.
Need to freshen up your eyebrows with a manicured brow? No problem. As you mature, the tail end of the eyebrow might go astray, I can help you bring it around with some eyebrow color. Leg waxing, facial waxing is easy if you are ready to head out for a girls weekend.
My daughter and I spend a lot of time together going to her after school activities, just being girls plus spending time with friends and family. Love sharing cooking ideas so please bring in recipes or get together ideas.
My name Ray – Front Desk Coordinator/Social Media Coordinator
Indulge Salon is a place that breaks the mould in many aspects, ranging from services provided to the overall experience. Although I haven’t had the pleasure of working here for too long, I already feel like it’s the perfect fit for me, as I too am 180º degrees from the ordinary.
Driven by the motivation to better myself and desire to work with a collective that takes the extra steps to make a difference, I do everything ranging from making customer appointments and keeping all of our stylists and staff organized, to coordinating Indulge Pure Originals, having a hand in various marketing operations, managing inventory, maintaining the salon’s social media front as well as the I.T. backend, and any other tasks that involve making this business better for our customers.
Given the diversity of my background as a published author of two I.T. books, avid music listener and guitar player, a movie fanatic, aspiring traveler, former military, and a citizen of Lithuania for over 20 years, I am confident that I add a certain quality to Indulge that compliments everything we stand for. If nothing else, in addition to treating our customers to complimentary special coffee or magic tea, I am able to keep them company by sharing my experiences and taking in theirs, keeping the sentiment of community and comradery alive and well within our establishment.
During my time off, in addition to developing and adding to my current skill-set, I also enjoy travelling and exploring new places, challenging myself by trying new things, and spending time with my family and friends, which seems to be highly underrated nowadays.
If you enjoy not only good service, but also an experience that will leave you wondering why our competitors are even open anymore, feel free to drop by our salon and indulge in the sensations that have been dulled by the usual treatment elsewhere. See you soon!
My name is Alexa – Makeup artist, Esthetician, Stylist, Brow Connoisseur
I’ve been in the beauty industry for nine years. I started in New York City working as a model then moved into makeup artist for the models/runway work doing hair extensions, bridal styles, brows, and waxing. Being a model was exciting but tough always hearing your perfect one day for a shoot and the next not quite perfect for the shoot. I’ve since moved back to the Lancaster area to be with family yet work in here in York, Pa.
I love transforming the inner person onto the outside with hair, makeup, and skin treatments. The best part of my job is taking the new trends and applying them to the client I’m working on. If someone has short hair and needs long hair, we can make that happen within a couple of hours with tape in extensions, dream catcher micro cylinder extensions or clip in’s then I cut them to customize the look. I can teach you how to work with your hair extensions on a day to day basis. I love any type of hair color such as balayage, foil highlights, dimensional hair color, covering gray and rainbow color. Dislike your frizzy hair then let’s do a Brazilian Keratin Treatment to de-frizz your bulky hair. I can teach you how to style your hair for your wedding day, cocktail evening or just day to day styling blow out.
To polish your look, makeup starts with a good foundation in skin. I’ve had problematic skin when I was a teenager so I understand what it feels like to not have perfect skin but I’ve learned how to maximize with makeup and good skin care. I’ve always been detailed with my skin since I was young and have progressed to the art of makeup application for the professional business woman, bridal makeup, bridal parties and the mature woman wanting to find a more youthful look. It’s fun to teach my clients how to do their eyebrows or essentially make them appear when they have sort of faded out over the years. I feel that the shape of the brow can enhance a woman’s features by clearly shaping and road mapping the brow. Nothing that a little color and shaping can’t fix! Currently being certified in eyelash extensions and eyelash lifting.
Feel free to schedule an appointment for a facial treatment using manual manipulations for sensitive skin, high frequency current, anti-aging treatments, chemical peels for dehydrated, acneic, sensitive skin, rosacea, and teenage skin. When you schedule with me, we will discuss a home care plan to support what we do in the treatment room. Along with skin care treatments, waxing the eyebrows for the manicured brow, cheeks, chin, body waxing such as bikini, brazilian, legs, arms, chest and back are available.
Men’s barbering is a detailed job which gives me great pleasure making sure you get what you want.
Outside of work, my passion is dance that I teach others plus enjoy myself. It is a discipline that is very dear to my heart that takes practice daily. I spend time with my family and friends traveling.
My name is Brittani – Stylist, Makeup Artist
I went to Paul Mitchel Academy in Hawaii. I love it! The beauty ad scenery that I was exposed to in Hawaii was monumental in my career. I had a lot of positive mentors there that helped shape me as the stylist I am today. I did model a few years ago but since then have moved back to York, Pa to be closer to my family.
I’ve worked for Indulge Salon, York, Pa for 3 years cutting hair, coloring, highlighting, balayage highlighting, correcting the brassy colored hair to beautiful gray hair, blonde hair and anything in between. My favorite coloring is balayage highlights on long hair. Styling hair is exciting because it lets me use my tools to get the right beach wave or the updo for prom, wedding or daily living. I have a gift for braiding hair, box braids, yet smoothing frizzy coarse hair with the Brazilian Keratin Treatment makes me feel good when you go from curly to smooth in an hour. I’m great with smoother styles for African American hair, Asian, Indian, Caucasion hair. Because of my experience working with multiple textures gives me the advantage of providing solutions to many different types of hair.
Bridal makeup, prom makeup application has been fun for me since I had modeled for a few year. I can do natural or dramatic whichever you chose.
I have regulars for men’s haircutting in clipper cutting, men’s styling, and regular cutting shear over comb. Usually, I’ll recommend 4 weeks for all of my male haircuts to maintain their hair.
If you need waxing, I will do facial waxing while you are having your hair services done so that you can be efficient with your time. When you come in we can talk about what you are interested in for your hair, skin and pedicures. I prefer doing pedicures because I get a lot of compliments on my massages.
Outside of work is spent with family and friends. Currently I have one on the way and a daughter that is growing up to fast. We attend her after school activities together. Not much time to relax between advanced education, children and work.
