The old saying goes that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”
 
This is true, but for as long as time, people have been seeking the best version of themselves both physically and spiritually.
 
Enter Bodyworks Salon & Day Spa, located at 1087 East Main Street in Grass Valley. In addition to women’s, men’s and kids’ haircuts, the salon offers an array of services for those looking to achieve what they think is their best outward look.
 
Bodyworks’ owner Jessica Prentiss knows a thing or two about styling, having gone to barber school. In October of 2020, Prentiss took over the salon, which was originally opened 27 years ago.
 
Prentiss is eager for people to know she offers not only barbering services but can do a good old-fashioned hot shave.
 
“Bodyworks has been the longest going salon in Nevada County,” Prentiss said. “ I think I am the third or fourth owner.”
 
Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Prentiss has spent the majority of her life in Nevada County.
 
“We do just about every thing there,” said Prentiss. “A lot of people don’t realize we have two barbers, two estheticians, seven cosmetologists, and manicures and pedicures, lashes, nails, spray tan, body sculpting. We pretty much do everything. You can get anything there.”
