Today Bristow Beat is launching a new column, Hidden Gems, based upon Samantha Spittle's video series by the same name. The videos are an extension of Samantha's Flushing It Out podcast and video productions, featuring local entrepreneurs and inspiring individuals.
Hidden Gems features unique "gems" in the area- independently-owned retail establishments, restaurants, wineries and other entertainment venues.
Each of these business or nonprofit exists to enhance the small-town and cultural experience of Northern Virginia "outburbs." They are places you can frequent for the shear enjoyment of it, bring friends along, or relax on the weekends or whenever you are off-the-clock.
The column includes Samantha Spittle's client videos that highlight the culture of the area. As you read the article, we invite you to watch and share the video and visit the establishment for yourself.
This week’s Hidden gem is the holistic salon Enlightened Styles, which specializes in non-toxic, eco friendly, green chemistry practices and is located in Warrenton.
Creative Entrepreneur, Jacquelyn Rodriguez, Intuitive Business Coach And Holistic Salon Owner established Enlightened Styles ten years ago as a full service hair and skin care salon. She uses only natural, green chemistry products- no toxic solutions, no wasteful overuse of materials such as plastic and foils. She also started her own custom cosmetics line that can be purchased in her salon. Each shade created for your skin and hair chemistry!
While running Enlightened Styles, Jacquelyn began providing Reiki energy work and relaxation and restorative treatments to her clients. Ultimately, she has recognized that she can coach people to actualize lifestyle changes in their daily and professional lives. That is how she became an Intuitive Business Coach.
After COVID scare most people are looking for solution and one such is spa room for rent @ Salon Lofts. It is able to provide a safe place for people with immuno-compromised health during COVID. The environment is clean and only a few number of people are allowed in the salon at once, far exceeding CDC and Health Department standards.
Come in relax and allow someone to take care of YOU! Enjoy a traditional hair cut or dive into a relaxation and wellness treatment such as a Reiki head and neck treatment with your shampoo.
If you are curious about how simple changes can lead to more profound changes in your life, be sure and connect with Jacquelyn.
Special Deal for Flushers (that’s you!). Take 10% off any hair service that you book with Enlightened Styles OR Schedule a complimentary 15 minute coaching session with Jacquelyn.

About Hidden Gems
Connection is the key to life and what better way to connect than by making memories in and around your area. As the “introvert’s extrovert,” Samantha Spittle talks to people, so you don’t have to…for now.
Samantha started her podcast, “Flushing It Out” in 2019 as a way to engaged in meaningful conversations and “peel back the layers” of how we are all connected. She hoped that through her podcast, people could learn from one another and get inspired!
This year, Samantha has taken those conversations on the road, talking to people who found and run “Hidden Gems” in our area. Through her Hidden Gems video series, Samantha (safely) explores boutique shops, restaurants, wineries, lodgings and more.
Find out what hidden gems you may have overlooked in the Prince William-Fauquier area and what they are doing to adapt during the COVID-19 crisis.
