Introducing Haley Judge: Rosewater Holistic Skin Studio

Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
I offer facials, facial waxing, and everything in between. After many skin health obstacles with both myself and family, I knew I wanted to create a studio focused on organic, holistic skin care. Our skin is our largest organ, and we forget it’s always communicating with us. My treatment room is set up apothecary style, meaning all products are hand mixed during your visit to ensure freshness and to be customized to your skin’s immediate needs. In 2017, I also created my own skin care line called Rosarium, to give my clients what I wasn't seeing on the market. I want to simplify your daily routine and make skin care an enjoyable ritual.
What life accomplishments are you most proud of?
Being a mother, opening my own business, and creating my own skin care line. All have greatly influenced the other. Once I became a mother, my entire approach to esthetics changed, and I brought my maternal side into the practice. Getting a facial is a very intimate experience; the last person to wash your face for you was most likely your mother. Once I embraced it, my facials became more than about just skin care; they’re about genuinely caring for others. On the flip side, having my daughter grow up under my treatment table has been priceless. She helps me and sees that if you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.
What’s your favorite childhood memory?
I was about 10 when my mom showed me how to make an egg face mask. I remember telling her how I wanted "to open a spa where they put real food on people’s faces." I got pretty close!
And finally, customer service is…?
Love. If you don't genuinely love what you do and who you work with, it shows. Each of my clients have turned into close friends.
What’s your favorite local business other than your own?
One Love Refill Station—they have the best soaps, gifts, and classes.
