Firmer Massage Style


Sam started out doing fantasy face painting! How great is that? A true mask master. While he loves the transformation, he realized that once the makeup came off that he'd have to learn how to love the skin underneath as well. He says that so far, the journey has been tremendously rewarding. He infuses a pragmatic scientific approach with optimism and artfulness, leaving his clients with a renewed energy, both within themselves and within their skin.

Skin is like a child we care for. When skin acts out, it is telling us what it needs, and my goal is to meet those needs with specific, gentle actives and love.

What clients are saying

Sam is LOVELY and very passionate about his work.

Sam was incredibly nice and so knowledgeable! I came in with crazy hormonal breakouts, and one day after my facial, they're already healing so well and my face looks a million times better. I have been struggling with acne for almost 10 years, and the personalized care at Heyday is just so much more meaningful than any treatment I've ever received from a dermatologist. I can't thank you enough!

Sam was very professional and a knowledgeable esthetician. I love love the clean skin care products you use!!

Best Advice

In a pinch, a touch of eye cream underneath your balm can bring chapped lips back from the brink of death.

Fun Fact

I used to study color theory and painting. Still love both!
