We’re honored to have won in two categories at the 2011 Austin Fashion Awards. We were once again honored with Best Spa in Austin. SALON by milk + honey was honored as the Industry Choice Winner as Best Salon in Austin. This award was truly meaningful as it feels great to have your hard work recognized by your hard working peers. Thank you!
McCombs TODAY interviewed Alissa Bayer, founder of milk + honey Spa. She talks about her MBA experience at McCombs, what led her to the spa industry, and what she sees ahead in the spa industry. Alissa prides herself on working with her Spa Partisans, and that’s why the title of the interview fits perfectly; “The Priority of Pampering Employees.”
Alissa Bayer, MBA ’04, arrived in Austin from San Francisco in 2002 to pursue a business degree. She served as a venture capitalist fellow at McCombs, giving her the opportunity to work closely with the partner of a local venture capital firm. Upon graduation she started a business of her own, opening milk + honey Spa in 2006.
Bayer now operates two locations of milk + honey Spa in Austin and is opening another within the next year. milk + honey was named the top day spa in Texas by Les Nouvelles Esthétiques and offers a full range of spa treatments from massages to waxing to nail therapy. She and her husband are the proud parents of four-month-old twins.

In the travel blog of Charm City’s eponymous magazine, write Janelle Diamond talks about her visit to Austin.
First some good observations about how locally focused Austin is (yay!):
I think one of the biggest differences between Austin and many other cities is how much support the local shops receive—and other local vendors/designers. It’s such a healthy environment for a small, local business.
And then a nice visit to milk + honey:
