Meet Heather

After Heather got out of the service in 2018, she was struggling to decide on which career path she wanted to pursue. Her boyfriend Jesse encouraged her to explore the spa industry due to her fascination with beauty and skincare, which led her to Aveda Institute Las Vegas. She completed their esthetics program and received her license. Since then she has lived in a few different places but ultimately settled down in New Bern with Jesse and their newborn son James. 


Heather believes in holistic beauty and quality products. She prides herself on educating her clients and giving them recommendations on what they should incorporate in their at-home skin routine. Heather only uses high-quality products that are nature-based, but still have the power to alleviate a myriad of skin issues. For face care, she uses an Ayurvedic line called Hylunia which is very similar to Aveda products. 


Heather's favorite service she loves to offer her clients is Acne Facials, while Anti-Aging Facials are a close second. She also offers waxing, lash lift and tint, body wraps, and back facials. Don’t wait, book your appointment with her today!

"Received the best lash tint and lift from Heather! I am obsessed with my lashes, they look so much longer and fuller, and I feel so confident in the products she uses! The spa itself had a great atmosphere, and Heather was a great conversationalist! Looking forward to my next appointment with her!"

"I just got a facial from Heather Hughes today and MAN! I had a 5-star experience from the moment I entered the door to the moment I walked out of it. She was so welcoming and her energy makes you feel so comfortable. Very easy to talk to and knows her stuff. She gave the best advice I never knew about the products I was using on my face and told me affordable alternative brands for me to try. Normally you walk into a facial and you’re super embarrassed the whole time because the esthetician is like yeah your face is not TeRriBlE you have all these issues wrong with it because you do all this bad stuff. But Heather was not like that at all. I walked out of there feeling like a million bucks and I can’t wait to go back again! Not to mention I got this amazing service when I literally booked with her the night before I came in to see her and she was super flexible fitting me in last minute."

"This was my first time ever getting a facial and I’m so glad I chose to have it done by Heather. I had the hydrating aloe facial and it was exactly what my skin needed. Heather is so knowledgeable and the overall experience was just amazing. The atmosphere is clean and friendly and my face feels incredible."

"Heather was very sweet, kind and knowledgeable. She’s very easy to talk to. She made my first ever visit to an esthetician a relaxing one. I had the vitamin c peel done and loved every bit of it."

- Samantha M

"The Vitamin C Peel is such a relaxing, and rejuvenating facial treatment. My skin is still glowing and feels so smooth! Heather was very thorough and I'm looking forward to getting the Grape Seed Facial next month."
