Two and half years ago, Sharon Boduck opened Rose Water in a small private studio located on the second floor at 127 Main Street in Gardiner. She came to the area in 2008 from San Francisco and has enjoyed becoming a local resident who operates her own small business in Gardiner.
As an Esthetician—a licensed professional who has learned skin care, skin waxing, and other related treatments— Sharon offers an array of services from eyebrow and Brazilian waxes to corrective facials customizing each treatment. She specializes in chemical peels and enzyme facials, a transformative experience for skin texture and pigment issues. She also uses facial and neck massage as part of any treatment, depending on what the person needs or wants, all in a soothing, peaceful environment.
As the owner of her own business she delights in the details; the chance to create an experience for her clients from start to finish. She coordinates her schedule and the clients’ to create balance in her personal and work life.
The business has about one hundred regular clients who come for the special, personalized service and her respectful approach to grooming them. As she described her business, “I love making it a special experience for people and making it an affordable luxury.”
Sharon had worked for other companies in various locations when she became captivated by the quaintness of Main Street, the street lights, and the charm of a small town. The opportunity to open her own studio in a location where people could walk to the post office and the village market appealed to her. Operating her own business also gives her a chance to limit the number of clients that she sees in a day so that there is always time to do it right.
In her own words, “Being the owner and the esthetician is a wonderful combination; I have a chance to run a small business the way I want to.”
She does not advertize, relying on word of mouth to spread news of her business. For some, that means the treatments are their beauty secret. It also encourages women to bring their sisters, friends, mothers and mothers-in-law (sometimes) to enjoy these services,
