A popular Carrollton salon has a new owner. Indulge Salon & Day Spa, located one mile from Adamson Square on Rome Street, was recently sold to Michelle and Randy Hanscom of Marietta. Previously, the business was owned by Stacy McLarty.
McLarty started Indulge Salon & Day Spa in 2004, when she was 21 years old at a location on Trojan Drive. After three years, McLarty expanded and Indulge moved to its current location on Rome Street. Indulge offers massages, facials, manicures, pedicures and make-up services.
“We [Michelle and Randy Hanscom] really fell in love with the brand Stacy created,” said Michelle. “Indulge’s mission statement really stood out to us.”
Michelle is a business veteran when it comes to the esthetics industry as well as a licensed esthetician. Her husband, Randy, has been a business owner in the flooring industry since graduating from college. The couple plans to bring many different trends to the West Georgia area.
“I have a lot of plans and dreams about what I want to see offered,” said Michelle. “The first thing I want to do is come in the door, meet clients and get to know the lifestyle at Indulge.”
Since moving to Saint Simons Island in 2018, McLarty said Indulge was maintaining effectively, but she really had a desire to grow and continue the brand. However, with the distance she felt unable to do so on her own.
“I feel like I was doing an injustice to keep it,” said McLarty. “But after seeking someone who is super inspired and ready to give it the same energy it deserves, it can now grow and further the brand I created.”
Although the COVID-19 pandemic postponed the sale for months, the transaction was recently completed, and the Hanscoms are now the active owners of Indulge Salon & Day Spa.
“We plan to continue providing superior service and exceptional quality like in the mission statement,” said Hanscom. “I am really excited to learn more about Carrollton and our local clients here. We plan on relocating to the area soon and are very excited about our future.”
Indulge spa director, Becky Preston, is looking forward to continuing Indulge’s image with the Hanscoms.
“I’ve witnessed a lot of exciting changes at Indulge over the years. This is by far the biggest and most exciting,” said Preston. “I can’t wait to see what the next chapter holds for our Indulge family.”
