And those are just the customers. Inside the bright, modern, eco-friendly salon, the professional stylists, estheticians, nail techs, spa managers, and Reiki masters showcase their own unique styles. From side-swept bangs and classic updos to bright stripes, detailed nails, pinecone pendants, and open-backed dresses that hint of summer. It’s feminine edge at its finest.

Or if you prefer, consider it a down payment on the impending near-perfection that is a Maine summer. On Saturday, dog owners (and the people who love them) will spend the morning picking up what their four-legged sidekicks left behind. It’s April Stools Day, and cleanups are taking place at locations around Portland.
You think you know a city. And then you find out it’s been hiding an underground lagoon from you for the last century. It’s true. Biddeford has places you’ve probably never seen. But
