A note from the owner:
Hello, I'm Leah Lynch, Newburyport local and owner of Beautique! Beautique was created with the dream of bringing together fun, talented professionals with discerning clients in a casual and homey environment. The number one feedback we get, besides our high skill level, is that clients really feel welcome and comfortable in our cute, intimate space.

After only a few years in business, we were honored with FIVE Best of North Shore awards, as well as magazine and television appearances, international recognition, and awards for our lash extension services.

As the creator of Lash Affair Academy, a national training company, I am able to provide a unique and high level of training to my staff that sets us apart from competitors.

I couldn’t be more grateful for my amazing team. Come see what everyone's talking about!

Check out our reviews on Yelp! and Facebook and follow our work on Instagram @beautique_nbpt. Thank you for supporting my dream!

Hanh Dolan
Beautique is pleased to welcome Newburyport favorite Hanh Dolan, skin care and waxing expert. Hanh built her career in Newburyport at Paradiso Day Spa and after a hiatus from town she is excited to be back.

As a young adult, Hanh worked with her father at his dermatology practice in California. After working with him for a while, she went off to school and graduated with a degree in Bio-Chemistry, beginning her career path at a pharmaceutical company in 2005. During her time there, Hanh couldn’t help but to remember the years she spent with her father and his patients. She thought about them often and remembered how, after treatments for certain diseases and disorders, the patients’ skin seemed to lose its luster, shine, and in some cases, even its elasticity. Hanh regularly wondered how she could help.

It was with this intention that she decided to leave the pharmaceutical industry and pursue her CA Esthetician’s License with the aim of learning how to bring beauty, health and radiance back to the skin of the people who needed it most. She spent some time researching schools and finally decided on Catherine Hinds Institute because she liked the reputation that they’d built. It was then that she moved to Massachusetts to begin the Master Esthetics program.

These days, Hanh is trained in laser hair removal, skin rejuvenation, microdermabrasion, various types of facials, cellulite treatment, spray tanning, Venus Freeze, make-up artistry and more. And her work hasn’t gone unnoticed either! She is the recipient of Northshore Magazine’s Best Brow Award! And, before coming to Beautique, she was also noticed by Christian Dior and hired as a skincare consultant and make-up artist. But these days, Hanh has moved on to even greater things. She is a significantly valued member of the Spa family and continues to take pride in making her clients look and feel beautiful each and every day.
