In August 1993, Unique Salon and Spa was cofounded by six women. Due to the closing of another salon in the town of Atlantic, Iowa, these women found themselves unemployed and in a tight spot. Local business owner's Jan Kinnison and Rebecca Power took the women under their wing; providing them with the great idea to open their own shop. Being that none of the women had ever ran a business they turned to Jan and Rebecca to mentor them. Jan purchased a building and a new path was paved for these six women.
A month after the building purchase was complete, the women grew worried with the thought of more time without a source of income. Jan began to scour Southwest Iowa for a construction crew and found one whom could complete the salon project within a month. Finding equipment and product quickly was not as easy. They found a company that allowed them to borrow equipment and product, until the new stuff arrived. With a little help from some old and new friends, the Kutting Krew Salon was born.
After over a decade of business, the Kutting Krew landed upon a golden opportunity. At the time Jan purchased the salon's building, she purchased the neighboring building as well. With business booming at the salon, Jan saw the perfect chance to expand and renovate.
In early 2005, the change began. The salon expanded to 8 chairs and what was once Alma Tallman's sewing shop, was now a full new day spa. With the spa came the following new services: tanning, full body waxing, facials, massages, and pedicures. Along with the new additions came a new name, Unique Salon and Spa.
Today, Unique Salon and Spa is located in the same picturesque downtown Atlantic location. The hardworking employees that operate the shop, still provide the extraordinary salon services that customers have come to know and love. These are the services that will continue to beautify Atlantic for years to come.
To thoroughly enjoy your Unique experience, we ask that you please arrive 10 minutes prior to your appointment. This will allow you enough time to fill out or review your confidential health form, use the facilities and unwind.
We encourage you to leave your worries behind and enjoy your time in a relaxed and receptive state of mind. We ask that all cell phones and pagers be turned off in the spa area, as well as using soft voices to not disturb others.
Please note that arriving late for your appointment may result in the shortening of your session to avoid delaying our next guest. We want you to be able to have your full time to relax and fully enjoy your Unique experience.
For your comfort we recommend not shaving immediately before spa treatments. Immediate exposure to the sun after certain treatments is also discouraged. Your modesty will be respected at all times with professional draping by our staff. During treatments you will remain covered at all times, with only the area being treated exposed.
A 24 hour notice of all cancelled or rescheduled spa appointments is required.
I came into this town for a dire need of a pedicure. This newly remodeled spa was state of the art, clean, friendly, great music! I had my own relaxing room for my pedicure. I was offered coffee, tea, wine, water, or snacks. I sat here for an hour being pampered and feeling so relaxed. The girls are professional sweet and did an amazing job!!
The stylists are awesome! They all know their stuff and the place is just stunning. Very top of the line salon with a very good price for everything! Very glad I chose to go here.
Just had a wonderful massage with Zeb! I would recommend him to anyone wanting to have a massage! 5 stars is not nearly enough for the work he does!!!!
