milk + honey spa is looking for talented spa and salon professionals to join our expanding team.
We will be in touch closer to our opening date for next steps.
Thank you for your interest in milk + honey. We look forward to meeting you in person.
milk + honey is the brainchild of lifestyle entrepreneur Alissa Bayer, a Florida native who moved to Austin to attend graduate school at University of Texas at Austin. Alissa fell in love with the city, its unique culture, and the wonderful people, so she and her family made the decision to stay. One thing that Alissa didn’t find in Austin were the wonderful urban day spas that she frequented in years past while living in New York, Washington, D.C., and San Francisco. After much soul-searching and strategic planning, Alissa decided to fill this need and combine her many years of professional experience, her creative and playful nature, and her desire to create something that makes other people feel great. She founded milk + honey in 2006 with a single, standalone spa, and has since grown the brand to include a collection of spas across Austin and Houston as well as a line of hyperclean, non-toxic bath, body, and skincare available in-store and online. A dynamic and inspiring leader with extensive expertise in clean beauty and wellness, Alissa is an active member of the community through her involvement in Girlstart and the University of Texas at Austin’s MBA mentorship program.
BEES by milk + honey In a continued effort to give back, milk + honey owns and operates an urban apiary in Austin that supports the local ecosystem, protects the bees, and produces a small harvest of honey each year. Employees have the opportunity to apprentice with the beekeeper in order to learn about organic, non-aggressive beekeeping firsthand and 100% of the honey proceeds go directly back to maintaining their healthy hives.
