A new beauty shop that specializes in prettiness and prayers has opened on Tucson’s southeast side.

Painless Permanent Makeup & Prayer has leased space in the Civano Center, 10501 E. Seven Generations Way.

Owner Lorraine Montgomery’s services include facials, peels, waxing, manicures, restorative cosmetic work for cancer survivors and prayers.

She has been an aesthetician for 24 years, but working in a salon with shared space limited the services she could provide.

“For the last several years, I’ve offered to pray for my clients when they brought up health issues or life’s challenges,” Montgomery said. “‘Sure’ they would say, ‘I’d never turn down a prayer.’”

When she began processing the paperwork for her new business, she filed with the state under the name Painless Permanent Makeup.

“I felt God tugging at my heart to add ‘& Prayer’ but that seemed like such a big, bold step,” Montgomery said.

After more than a month of waiting for her license, she discovered that it had been returned because she had written an old address on it.

“It was returned to me, unopened, with God giving me another chance to include Him,” Montgomery said. “OK, Lord, I get it, I’ll add ‘& Prayer’”

The salon is open Monday through Saturday by appointment only. Call 419-0620 for availability.

Facial peels start at $70, permanent makeup starts at $295 — and the prayers are free upon request.
