StormSister Spatique is an online beauty shopping experience.
Where did "StormSister" come from?
When my sister and I owned our spa together, we had a client who called us the "Storm Sisters" whenever he greeted us. Sturm = Storm in German.
"When I left the salon/spa to open up my online/storefront beauty boutique, 'StormSister', just felt right," she says.
Who is Becky Sturm and what does she know about all this stuff? Well, it’s like this…Becky grew up in her grandmothers' beauty shop and has been a hairdresser for more than 23 years. A graduate of Minneapolis’ Horst Education Center, today known as The Aveda Institute, and in 1985, completed Horst’s Advanced Training program.
Following an internship with Aaron Nicholson of The Red Carpet Salons, Regis Corporation showed up on Becky’s doorstep. They convinced Becky and her sister, Michelle, to open a Regis salon for them in West Saint Paul’s Signal Hills Mall. Then the sisters started their own small salon in 1988 in their grandparents' home. As third generation hairdressers, Grandma was thrilled to host the in-house beauty shop for 11 years. Becky’s loyal clientele enabled the sisters to acquire THE SALON for you! Spa & Salon in 1997 in the Cathedral Hill neighborhood of Saint Paul.
Becky’s passion to explore new and unique products combined with her drive to educate clients facilitated the growth of her retail business within the salon. Eventually, Becky’s innovative style and entrepreneurial spirit pushed her to start her own online shopping site. The website’s success enabled Becky to open the brick and mortar version, StormSister Spatique.
“I want to educate on just how important good skin and hair care really are. Invest in it now before serious money has to be spent on it later,” says Becky.
StormSister Spatique carries the finest (and funnest) in skin and body care lotions and potions. But, the major difference from other online beauty boutiques is the extensive knowledge Becky can share with her clients. Every product comes with Becky’s personal guarantee that you will love it!

Why is PEZ the official StormSister Spatique candy?
Much of my heritage is from Austria/Germany and since PEZ is originally from Austria I wanted a fun candy, from that region, to be part of the StormSister Spatique experience.
A fun-size PEZ is included with each online purchase.
What began as an online business in 2005, eventually evolved into a kitschy little storefront on Smith Avenue in Saint Paul's West Side neighborhood. After 4 years in her storefront, Becky Sturm, decided her next logical step in the beauty biz was product development.
April 2011 came the launch of 3waybeauty, a multi-purpose beauty brand and the first product - shhh. shampoo - shower - shave. www.3waybeauty.com
