Within the tranquil, century-old walls of the Belvedere house, the staff of The Secret Spa & Salon beautify bodies from the toes up. Hair stylists transform coifs with Aveda, Bumble and bumble, and Schwarzkopf products, as owner Richelle enhances natural nails with OPI, CND, and Gelish polish or extensions made from acrylic, silk, or fiberglass. A massage therapist eases tension with hot stones, aromatic oils, and custom pressure, and Dermalogica skincare experts clear complexions with relaxing facials that combat fine lines, acne, and premature aging. The spa also uses Jane Iredale makeup products.
Built in 1905 by the same architect behind the historic Biltmore house, Belvedere—which is part of the historic society—now has a slightly more modern feel thanks to the spa's staff, who accented its wood floors and abundant natural light with green plants and paintings by local artists. The multigabled house also boasts a projecting bay window, which makes an ideal spot for drying nail polish or testing the reflective properties of freshly waxed skin.
