To Beautify: Arch Apothecary

To Beautify: Arch Apothecary(Courtesy of Heather Talbert)Arch Apothecary is ahead of its time. The one-stop beauty shop opened before the concept became trendy, and it continues to stay ahead of the pack. The salon/boutique hybrid offers brows, blowouts and makeup, which couldn’t be more convenient. The talented staff is friendly, and there’s no feeling like you’re in a factory here. The services aren’t rushed or cookie cutter, and you’ll likely pick up some beauty tips from the pros.

Arch Apothecary offers group packages, and one of the most popular is for brides and bridal parties. They also have a stylized product bar that only comprises the goodies you should know about. The owners have assembled what they consider the “best of” from a variety of beauty lines. As a result, you’ll find a mix of cosmetics, candles and fragrances from niche to natural, that you’d normally never see under one roof. The products are beautifully displayed in the center of the store and along the walls, allowing for the vibrant packaging and makeup colors to serve as the art.
