Lacy Harstick has always been interested in skin care.

A lot of that interest stemmed from the skin issues she had while a teenager and the treatments she went through. That interest has led her to her current position as owner of Liv Lux Esthetics located at Suite 2, 400 Lincoln Avenue in York. The entrance to her salon is on the east side of the building. She opened her business about a year ago and is approaching her first business anniversary.

Born in Nebraska, she had lived most of her formative years in California except for her last three high school years which were spent at Stromsburg High School. She returned to California soon after until moving back to Lincoln in 2012. Life as it has a habit of doing, threw her a few curves and she returned to York with her daughter Liviana to live with her parents Becky and Marv Weber.

“I was a bookkeeper for over 20 years and really never had the opportunity to pursue any more school,” said Harstick. “Moving back to York with my parents gave me the opportunity to go back to school at the College of Hair Design in Lincoln and get my esthetics license.” She also has her esthetics salon license which allows her to own and operate her own salon. As you might expect, the “Liv” part of her business name is after her three year-old daughter.

When asked about the services she provides she said the most popular was dermaplaning which is an exfoliation process that sloughs off the outer layer of dead skin cells on the face. “It helps with reduce fine lines and wrinkles,” said Harstick, “along with reducing acne scars and hyper-pigmentation and any discolorations of the skin.”

“In addition it removes the peach fuzz from the face,” she added. “It also makes the skin super smooth.” Other services she provides include facials, full-body waxing, lash lifting and tinting along with LED light therapy which also helps reduce acne by drying out the blemishes and killing bacteria.

Harstick operates by appointment only and can be reached at 402-802-6447. She also has a booking site at along with a web site at She currently carries at retail a line of Glow Skin Beauty products including skin care products and makeup. She is currently putting together some package deals for the holidays and also has a referral program where clients can earn discounts by referring new customers.

“I am so excited to have my business in York where I have roots but haven’t been living until recently for many years,” said Harstick. “It is great to be back and reconnect with some but also meet new people. I hope you will come see me at my little shop to get your monthly wax, relax with a facial, or let me help you with your skincare concerns.”

What the Heck: Got stuff laying around that you’ve been meaning to throw out and just haven’t got around to it? This Saturday, October 19 is your chance during the City of York’s Clean-up Day. The event will run 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and I believe fees are being waived at the York landfill during this time. So, it’s time to start looking around and see what needs to be gone. The Board of Realtors has been working with the city to make this happen so take advantage.

Also on that day, the local Ace Hardware store at 630 S. Lincoln Avenue will be taking in any old or unused paint that you would like to get rid of for free. Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and anyone in need of paint or supplies can browse through what is donated.
