UpTown Beauty

“A thing of beauty is a joy forever”--this is the Mission Statement that UpTown Beauty thrives on. UpTown Beauty is located in beautiful downtown Emmett at 200 West Main St. The salon had its Open House and Ribbon Cutting on March 21, 2014. Their family and friends are their biggest supporters, as you can tell from the picture taken at the ribbon cutting. “We strive to give our clients a comfortable, family friendly environment.” co-owner Tracy Harris said. “We want our customers to feel comfortable and at home when they step into our salon.”

Kara Hugo, co-owner, has been doing hair for 10 years and prior to being at UpTown Beauty was at Hairs To You; she was ready to start her own business. Kara was able to convince Tracy, who has 14 plus years of experience, to come back after a brief break and start a salon of their own. Rick Alan is new to the area but has 30 plus years’ experience in the hair care business. At UpTown Beauty, Rick offers hair care services. He has some clients, but is always welcoming new ones. “He did amazing on the coloring job on my hair, I will definitely be returning to him,” stated Sydney Evans, one of Rick’s newest clients.

Tracy and Kara have known each other and have been friends for 10 years. The girls met Rick through their church and asked him to join their team and to be a part in their new adventure. So not only are they family in their business, but they are a part of the same church family. “We are very close to one another and we want to help each other build our business. We all support each other in everything we do.”

“If you are looking for a hairstylist or someone to do your nails come check us out. We have a comfy seating area where we can sit, chat, and get to know each of us a little better. Even if you don’t need a new stylist come sit down and relax!” says Tracy.

The team at UpTown Beauty offers Nail care - pedicures and manicures; family hair care - cuts, colors, perms; and facial waxing. Kara and Tracy are available from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday – Saturday, other times are available by appointment. Rick Alan is available every Friday and every other Saturday. They also have gift cards available. You can call and make an appointment during business hours or leave us a message at 365-7435. Visit UpTown Beauty on Facebook at

The Orchard Christian Church

The Orchard Christian Church is a brand new church being planted here in the Emmett Valley. “Sharing God’s grace so that hearts grow deep in love for Christ and rich in love for people.” This is the mission statement for The Orchard Christian Church. This is core statement on sharing their beliefs. Ben and Telah moved here from Utah in July of 2013. They were contacted by the Intermountain Church Planters Association to help plant a church. Ben and Telah were both raised as “PK’s” Pastors Kids, they plan to follow in their fathers’ footsteps and raise their children with the same beliefs they were raised with. They are both extremely excited to be teaching the word of God to friends, family, and strangers.

They are a faith community, Bible-based church pursuing God's purpose in this generation. The church is made up of local people of all ages and walks of life. “Our goal is to care for our community in such a way that people will be open to experiencing the amazing grace of God” states Ben McClary, Lead Pastor.

They strive to grow a healthy and vibrant community of faith that is positive, supportive, relational, and rooted in Jesus’ teaching about how to enjoy life as God intends. “I have come in order that you might have life—life in all its fullness.” –Jesus (from John 10:10).

This wonderful church offers opportunities for our community to connect with God in a relaxed and informal worship service setting, and for people to help each other grow personally and spiritually. The church offers Sunday morning classes for kids, newborn to fifth grade and four life groups that meet Monday through Friday.

The Orchard Christian Church meets at Carberry Elementary School located at 12th and Sub Station. Worship and Sunday service is from 10:30-11:45 a.m. every Sunday morning. “We invite you to come be a part of this brand new church,” says Ben McClary.

Their official “Grand Opening” month is April. They have invited everyone and anyone from the community to be a part of their church family from the very beginning, when EVERYONE is new.

Ben loves to hear feedback from the community and encourages everyone to visit their Facebook page at and their Website at “We are looking forward to making lots of new friends here in the months and years ahead”-Ben
