Ici Paris Opens Its Doors for 10th Anniversary Celebration

From its opulent Old World décor to its world-class spa and salon services, Ici Paris does everything with style. So next week, when the spa and salon opens its doors to celebrate its 10th anniversary, be prepared to be impressed.

The owners of Ici Paris, Beata Neter and Lynda Patrylo, are welcoming all guests, from their long-time clients to visitors who have not yet discovered Ici Paris’s highly trained staff and wide selection of pampering services.

The celebration, which will be held Thursday, December 3rd from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., promises to be festive and exciting.

Visitors and guests will be treated to “sampler” versions of Ici Paris’s pampering services, including mini-massages, hair consultations, makeup applications, chair massages, paraffin treatments for hands or feet, and mini-facials (all services based on availability). They can receive special bonus offers on CosMedix and Dermologica skin care products and Jane Iredale mineral make-up. They’ll also be able to enter a drawing to win one of three gift certificates, including a facial and massage package, a 60-minute Swedish massage and an upper body treatment.

In addition, visitors will receive a coupon for $10 off any service of $45 or more, which may be redeemed until December 31st, 2009.

Ici Paris’s staff of aestheticians, massage therapists, hair stylists, nail technicians, make-up artists and front desk coordinators—many of whom are originally from European countries such as Germany, Poland, Great Britain, Switzerland, Russia and Italy—will give the celebration an international flair, bringing an assortment of desserts from their native countries.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to tour the world-class spa and salon, which is surprisingly large— both in terms of its space (5000 square feet) and its staff (a team of 35). There are seven aestheticians, seven massage therapists, six hair stylists, five nail technicians, and a make-up artist. Then there’s the front desk coordinators: eight friendly and welcoming professionals who work tirelessly to attend clients’ needs, making sure that every client receives outstanding service and treatment.

Beata and Lynda believe that it’s their careful attention to detail, their emphasis on ongoing professional training, and their commitment to excellence that have made Ici Paris so successful over the past ten years.

The pair first met in Peachtree City, shortly after Beata, an internationally-trained aesthetician, moved to the area from Toronto and began working with Lynda, a massage therapist. “Beata’s strong background in aesthetics and my experience in body treatments and massage made for a wonderful partnership,” Lynda explains.

The spa originally opened in the Westpark Shopping Center in 1999. Within eighteen months, Ici Paris had established itself as one of the premier spas in metro Atlanta. Beata and Lynda found themselves in need of a larger space, and with the Avenue under construction across the street, they found the perfect space.

“We more than doubled in size,” says Beata, “and by doing so we were able to add on hair salon services so that our clients could receive a complete spa and salon experience.”

The business partners believe that Ici Paris’s emphasis on high standards of training for its staff has been a critical component of its success. The aestheticians, for example, are required to attend comprehensive educational programs, keeping abreast of the latest techniques in areas such as epidermal leveling and chemical peels.

Ici Paris’s staff is also very warm and personable. “They combine sincere and passionate energy with a kind and caring spirit,” explains Beata. “Many of them have been with us for a long time because they love what they do, and they love working with our clients.”

Then there’s its extensive salon menu—91 different services—including services customized for special occasions, such as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and even business parties. Most recently, the spa began a “Girls’ Night Out” offering for groups of friends.

Men are also welcome, of course, with the most popular services being deep tissue and sport massages, gentlemen’s facials, sport manicures and pedicures, and haircuts.

For Beata and Lynda, the 10th Anniversary Celebration next week will be an opportunity to introduce themselves to newcomers and thank their existing clientele.

“We are happy and proud to provide them with wonderful experiences for all of these years,” Beata smiles.
