Carrie Holley and Alicia Liddon are two sisters who always knew they wanted to do something meaningful together. Their shared passion for an all-natural lifestyle and holistic approach to health, alongside their strong entrepreneurial spirits, eventually led to the birth of Escape Day Spa. In 2010, a time when our economy was failing, Carrie and Alicia chose to silence the voices of discouragement and pursue their desire to help people. 2010 is also the year Alicia became an aesthetician and one year later, in 2011 added Lash Stylist to her title. Carrie began her career as a massage therapist in 2001.
“I became a massage therapist because of a bad car accident. I suffered from pain, PTSD, and, panic attacks for 10 years. Through massage, I learned how to handle it and heal. Now I love educating people on how to heal themselves and help themselves holistically.” – Carrie
“I can’t imagine doing anything else or with anyone else. I love what we do at the spa. We will always stand firm behind plant-based and all-natural materials. We were the first in Birmingham to offer organic skincare.” – Alicia
It was their rule from the beginning that all ingredients would be organic and they even started off mixing and making their own products to stay true to their convictions. ”It’s what we believed in.” These two sisters continue to be aesthetic pioneers. Alicia was the first Lash Aesthetician in the Birmingham area and is now working on sharing her skill with others. The nature of their work isn’t the only thing these sisters share. They both love hiking and yoga, and when asked what force drove them to keep going, they both said they wanted to build something for their greatest passion of all…their children.
