Jade Aveda is a devoted ambassador of their namesake brand. By using Aveda's naturally derived, eco-conscious skin and hair products, they're able to support their mission to "take care of our guests and our planet, keeping both looking beautiful." In keeping with the Aveda spirit, Jade refers to their services as "experiences," turning even a routine haircut into a chance to unwind by including a scalp massage and other relaxing rituals. As stylists perform cuts, coloring treatments, and complimentary chair spins in the salon, the spa team nourishes skin with brightening facials and rosemary-mint body treatments.
Jade's interest in beautifying the planet and its people runs deeper than what they do at the salon, however. They're also invested in two philanthropic initiatives: the first is an annual fashion show to raise money for the Catawba River Keeper Foundation to protect local watersheds, and the second donates funds to area cancer centers during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Given this devotion to both their clients and their community, it's not surprising that Jade was the recipient of an Angie's List award for outstanding service in 2012.
To Susan Brooks—a 19-year health-industry veteran—the weight-loss services she provides at NuBody Solutions are not about aesthetics or vanity. She strives to educate, encourage, and motivate her clients toward healthier lives. With the help of licensed dietitian and nutritionist Jan Johnson, she chases off unwanted inches and evens out skin dimpled by cellulite using body wraps and noninvasive NuLazer Curve and NuLipoEx Advanced treatments. Their FDA-approved NuCell-u-Smooth system strives to remove pockets of stubborn fat and cellulite with heat and vacuum suction, whereas their weight-loss program makes use of regular weigh-ins, weekly tips, and ongoing emotional support.
Though NuBody's staffers focus on the healthy function of bodily machines, they also tend to exteriors. Microdermabrasion, botanical peels, and facials repair damaged skin and set complexions glowing, and waxing services remove unwanted hair from eyebrows, bikini lines, and pet yetis that need to pose as humans to fool suspicious neighbors.
In 2007, Antoinette Haynes began creating her own petroleum-free herbal jellies and body butters, and before long her genuine passion for skincare blossomed further. Soon after, she obtained her aesthetician license—along with advanced certifications in waxing, threading, and microdermabrasion—and began using her skills to tailor treatments for all ethnicities and sensitivities. Her expertise has even led her to a seat on the advisory council for the Esthetics Technology department of the Davidson County Community College.
Today, the self-made skincare products that initially fanned Antoinette's interest in aesthetics are available for purchase at her skincare suite. The herbal jelly, composed with natural oils and anti-inflammatory herbs, works wonders for dry skin, and has become a favorite among runners who use it to prevent chafing while body sliding across finish lines. Likewise, her shea- and cocoa-based body butters
soften skin and sport a soothing fragrance that melds with most other perfumes.
In the olden days, nomads and royalty alike made pilgrimages to the lowest point on earth: the Dead Sea. The vitamin-rich waters, which are roughly six times saltier than the ocean, had a therapeutic effect on bathers, dissolving stress, boosting metabolism, and brightening skin tones. Nowadays, the same benefits can be had without a trip to Jerusalem, thanks to L’Ultime Day Spa’s mud wraps, which tighten skin and detoxify systems with the sea’s salt and mud. A team of massage therapists can also relax muscles with kneads customized to each client, in styles that range from Swedish and deep tissue to reflexology, which focuses exclusively on the hands and feet. They can even ply the physique with reiki, energy work that stimulates the body’s self-healing powers without also activating its self-cloning powers.
Esthetic Director Joyce Darr considers her clients' needs her number-one priority, setting an example for the rest of her aesthetic team. Darr shares her expertise as a licensed aesthetician, certified reflexologist, and reiki master teacher to help clients practice healthier lifestyles through a range of services. The staff employs professional products to rejuvenate and soften skin during facials. They also master technology-based treatments including LED light therapy and ultrasound facials to beautify clients and their loyal robot butlers. The Skin Care Center hosts an oncology skincare clinic that provides complimentary services to help alleviate physical and emotional stress for clients undergoing cancer treatments.
Kallos Hair and Skin's freestanding salon cuddles guests in privacy as hardwood floors, airy curtains, and ample natural lighting add to a tranquil ambiance heightened by elegiac hymns sung by choruses of abandoned hairs. The studio's services include haircare for men and women; specialty facial and body treatments, including reflexology and reiki; and airbrush tans that blend Norvell's organic tanning formula with natural golden-brown bronzers.
With the help of their skin-analyzing magnifier, the aestheticians at Renewing Beauty use ultraviolet lights to magnify the skin’s deeper layers, as they believe that seeing what lies beneath the epidermal surface can help them better treat specific skin issues, including oily skin, clogged pores, and pigmentation damage, and evaluate clients current skincare regimens. Their custom treatments tackle everything from sun damage to signs of aging with pore-cleansing masks and signature peels.
The friendly staff at Zen Spa Lounge—located in The Sedgefield Shoppes between Marisol Restaurant and Blossoms—pampers clients with a lengthy list of massage, skin, and nail treatments. Therapists knead away tension and improve immune systems with deep-tissue massages and reflexology treatments. Aestheticians customize four kinds of facials to combat acne, dehydration, and dullness, perking up treatments with specialty masks full of football-movie pep talks and vitamins A and C.
Often when an eyebrow threader removes unwanted brow hair, they hold one end of the cotton thread in their mouth. But at Wow Brows!, threaders actually tie the thread around their neck, a technique that has been deemed by threading regulators in North Carolina to be more sanitary. In addition to shaping brows without disturbing the topmost layer of skin, hair-removal experts banish fuzz from all over the face.
• For $20, you get a natural French or American manicure (a $40 value). • For $30, you get a natural gel overlay and a choice between an anti-aging hand treatment or a hydrating hand mask (a $60 value).
At Advanced Laser & Electrolysis, thirty-year hair-subtraction veteran Trudy Brown helms a squad of professional, friendly specialists dedicated to safely and efficiently removing fuzz from all skin types. After a consultation, a trained laser specialist will select either the Cutera CoolGlide ND:YAG Laser or LightSheer Diode Laser to best depilate your pelt. Then, he or she will direct the gentle beam of light that passes through skin and into the follicles for long-lasting hairlessness.
Relax Natural Nail & Beauty Bar's polishers dote on hands and feet with emphasis on hygiene and products free of formaldehyde, paraben, and noxious fumes. Guests sip on complimentary wine, tea, or lemonade while a heated aromatherapy neck wrap soothes aching head pedestals. During mani-pedis, aestheticians shape nails and primp cuticles, then rub hands and feet down with a polishing sugar scrub to evict dead skin and exfoliate off old grocery lists scrawled on the bottoms of feet. Fingers are smoothed with lotion, and toes are rubbed with a shea-butter mask before snuggling into a heated bootie. Guests then choose a polish color to adorn nails, matching hues to a celebratory outfit or favorite sword hilt.
With a combined 20 years in the salon industry as a stylist and a certified national color educator for John Paul Mitchell, Cara Lentz knows how to resurrect dulled strands with fresh, vivid hues. When she founded Bliss&Co Advanced Education Studio, she made sure to install an interactive color bar where stylists could mix and match tones to create clients’ exact desired hair color.
The salon’s beauticians, who are categorized in three tiers of experience levels, wield a full line of Paul Mitchell, Tea Tree, and Awapuhi Wild Ginger products to create flowing, multitonal styles, or to make strands stand straight up for the popular “hanging upside down” look. Once salon treatments conclude, stylists showcase the salon’s collection of retail products that clients can use to maintain their new hairdos at home.
Bliss&Co Salon and Day Spa's aestheticians offer a host of beautification services, including exfoliating peels, microdermabrasion, waxing, facials, and scrubs.

Since her early childhood, Shanna has had
a passion with skincare—a devotion that led her to aesthetics school. "I love what happens when nature and science combine," she says, noting that she uses this mindset to approach each of her custom treatments for the face and body. In addition to waxing legs and smoothing faces with microdermabrasions, she makes sure that each client leaves the spa knowing how best to stretch the benefits of each service with at-home care. Inside Skin Solutions for You, she works in a treatment room that she designed to be "an oasis" for both her clients and herself.
