304 West was a place where police officers would spend late nights and long hours serving the Claremore community. Today, it is a place of rest and relaxation.
The building that used to be the old police department is now where Revitalize Esthetics by Rockell provides brow tinting and shaping, acne relief, scar reduction and several other esthetic services.
Rockell Sisco, a 12-year Claremore resident, recently opened her first brick and mortar store on Main Street. She completely renovated the 304 West building to give her clients a welcome and serene environment.
Rockell hasn’t always been in the spa business. After 15 years as a stay-at-home mom and foster parent, Rockell said she was looking for a new adventure.
“After our youngest son started kindergarten, I knew I wanted to return to the workforce but wasn’t quite sure what I wanted my next adventure to be,” Sisco said. “I love make-up and have enjoyed doing prom makeovers for relatives and close friends over the years. So, I decided becoming an esthetician would be a great fit for me.”
She received training from a licensed state board instructor in Owasso, completed numerous continuing education programs with Skinscript 101 and has a certificate in speed waxing. Rockell then began working in Owasso at Evoque Lash and Day Spa.
COVID-19 took a toll on the business and eventually caused it to close its doors. Rockell returned home to help her son with online learning.
“With schools implementing distance learning, it was imperative that I resume my role as a stay-at-home mom to help our son with school instruction,” Sisco said. “I learned homeschooling is not my cup of tea, so thank you teachers and other school faculty for all you do.”
Rockell said as life somewhat returned to normal, she began pursuing esthetic services again and noticed an opportunity in Claremore.
“I knew there were very few places that offered esthetic services here,” Sisco said. “Several people drive to Owasso or Tulsa for their skin care, lashes or waxing needs and it is nice to be able to expand that service in our community.”
Men, women, teens and children are all welcome at Rockell’s. She said she prides herself in being able to provide services for all kinds of clients.
“When kiddos see mom getting pampered, I offer options to pamper them too,” Rockell said. “Also, I have a young client who gets headaches a lot and enjoys the effects of relaxing facials.”
Rockell said she is thrilled to be a local business owner on Main Street and enjoys the community.
“I enjoy going outside in the morning to sweep the sidewalk and carry friendly conversations with the passerbys,” Sisco said. “I am so thankful for my location and I love hearing the variety of music that plays downtown.”
Through her business, Rockell said she’s met a lot of new people and even met some of her neighbors who came in for her services.
“I love being in a service industry that allows me the opportunity to get to know people,” Sisco said. “My hopes are to grow, thrive, and contribute to our local economy and of course to help people feel like the best version of themselves.”
