Discover the Root of Our Values
When Root Salon & Spa was originally founded, it was created as a spa environment, as this did not exist within our community and we wanted to provide a place for spa professionals to work together in Wauseon. Our journey first began in 2013 as Root Skin Care, two estheticians renting a small room shared with a massage therapist. The three of us loved bringing their services together and would eventually found Root Salon & Spa in 2017. We were blessed with family and friends who offered hair and nail services, and we jumped at the chance to work with them! As our journey continued, we quickly realized what we were creating was much more than just a spa.
Today, we take pride that Root Salon & Spa is a women-owned, family-oriented business made up of a team of highly skilled professionals. We take care every day to create an environment that is truly team-oriented. We know that we are better together and that this unity and sharing of knowledge sets us far above where we would be as individuals.
When you walk through our doors, we want you to know you’re our guest. Every service comes with a complimentary beverage from our specialty coffee and tea bar. And if you’d like to indulge, a selection of local pastries! We provide relaxing waiting rooms, guide you to and from your service, and each team member is ready to provide a positive experience.
We take great care that every brand we carry upholds the same level of integrity as we hold for ourselves. We pride ourselves in our research and trial before bringing any product or service to you. Our lines all boast cruelty free, toxin free, sulfate free, and paraben free. Many of them specialize in other endeavors that resonate with us at Root Salon & Spa. They are environmentally friendly, local, women owned businesses, and focus on giving back to their communities!
Kevin Murphy – Skincare for your hair! This tag line means so much to us at Root. Kevin Murphy hair products and color line are made combining hi-tech scientific knowledge with the best natural ingredients available to provide not just safe ingredients, but nourishing vitamins, antioxidants, and amino acids to give you your healthiest hair! An added bonus to Kevin Murphy is their commitment to save the planet. They use 100% ocean waste plastics, give a portion of profits back to reducing our carbon footprint, and all natural ingredients are derived from sustainable farming.
Osmosis+Beauty – skincare, wellness, and makeup line. We believe the skin operates at its highest capacity when it is at its healthiest – when it is not inflamed. Our approach to skincare is to keep the skin and entire body healthy. We cause no inflammation in our treatments. We love that this brand was created to care for your skin, so their supplements and makeup follow that goal first and foremost. Many of us wear makeup every day. Shouldn’t that makeup be benefiting our skin, rather than harming it? We think so! With Osmosis, that’s exactly what’s happening. Osmosis also provides daily wellness supplements and a skincare line that provides not just your skin, but the whole body with the nutrients it needs to fight free radical damage, process out toxins, replenish growth factors, and reverse the signs of aging.
Novalash – not all lashes are created equal! Novalash adhesive is a surgical grade adhesive with the lowest reaction rates of any lash adhesive available. It has rubber in the formula so it is matte, flexible, and loves water and oil! For this reason it is proven to last two times longer than its closest competitor. At Root we only offer volume lashes which give your lashes a fuller look and are much more lightweight and healthy for your natural lashes.
FarmHouse Fresh – Save something furry! This all natural body care line is used in all our manicures and pedicures. Each product not only smells divine but is chock full of super moisturizing ingredients like shea butter and avocado oil. They are a favorite of Oprah’s and have several products made specifically for her. They practice sustainable farming and have their headquarters on their farm devoted to their rescue animals. Employees personally take care of their animals and office employees are often seen feeding and playing with them during their lunch hour. They take on some of the most difficult cases to lighten the load for their local Humane Society. Check out our dog books at Root! Each purchase of this book, buys a dog bed for local rescues!
Teleties – This may be a small, simple product but we are proud to carry them. We tested many brands until we found Teleties. They do not cause knots, shrink back to size in hot water, protect from hair breakage, and are absolutely beautiful! We also love this company because they give back! With each purchase they donate to FORCE (Facing Our Risk of Cancer) which is a non-profit organization that aims toward improving the lives of people and families affected by hereditary breast, ovarian, and related cancers.
Hyde+Alchemy – Hyde+Alchemy is a husband and wife business located in Fort Wayne. They hand mix each 100% natural perfume themselves. 85% of each perfume is essential oil and the other 15% is coconut oil, compared the the typical perfume only containing about 14% oil. For this reason, it is only available in a roller ball application and a little goes a very long way and lasts about four times as long as your traditional perfume. Not to mention, toxin free!
Olive+Piper – Our jewelry is uniquely crafted to both dress up a casual daily outfit or for your most important events. This women owned business is one we are proud to feature. Some pieces are ones we keep in stock while others are seasonal and will not be available once they’re gone!
