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.
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.
An expert in traditional Swedish massage and neuromuscular therapy, Wayne Saville has been easing the tensions of local residents for more than 15 years. His signature massage combines techniques from Swedish and deep-tissue modalities, resulting in broad, flowing strokes that help calm the nervous system and ease exterior muscle tension. Wayne takes a similarly methodical approach to neuromuscular therapy sessions, during which he examines six distinct physiological factors to diagnose and alleviate muscle pain. These targeted sessions aim to release trigger points or compressed nerves and thereby rectify poor posture and obstructions in the blood supply. Wayne can work with you to discuss the type of bodywork that works best for your ailments; among his effective solutions are rocking movement, movement reeducation, and playing games of hopscotch across the back’s unresponsive pressure points.
Dedicated bodywork expert Julia Groome Allred heads Calming Ground’s staff of six certified therapists, who each employ expertise in assorted massage modalities to engineer customized treatments around clients’ needs. The team calms minds and dissolves tension with such diverse techniques as oncology massage, reiki, and reflexology, and frequently de-stresses champion badminton partners during couples’ massages. Each service assuages aches amid the idyllic environs of The Groome Inn, a 1900s farmhouse turned elegant bed and breakfast nestled on eight acres of lush woods, native North Carolina vegetation, and singing birds that happily field song requests. To further cultivate relaxation, Calming Ground clients can decamp to one of The Groome Inn’s four suites for a nap or catered basket lunch.
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.
After a lengthy history of practicing therapeutic massage across the country, relaxation guru Janet Blevins finally opened her own spa, Sage Dragonfly Massage & Bodywork. Today, the veteran massage therapist uses one-hour massages and indulgent body wraps and scrubs to dissolve stress as easily as a treadmill made of chocolate dissolves a New Year's resolution. She focuses on total body relaxation with head-to-toe Swedish strokes, or concentrates her efforts on particularly tense areas during deep-tissue treatments. Muscular tension melts under Janet's Eastern modalities, including acupressure, Thai cupping, and reflexology, and her fruit-infused body scrubs and mud wraps soften and exfoliate the skin.
Whether a simple bob or a layered maze of curls, no hairdo presents too steep a challenge for the 11 stylists at Looks Salon, who crop hair with techniques gleaned over many years of experience. Emerald-framed mirrors glint in the salon's warm light, casting a glow on hair as it takes on fetching styles courtesy of professional products from Redken, Crew, Paul Mitchell, and others. An online lookbook provides style inspiration prior to appointments with a slideshow of impeccably groomed celebrities and expressionistic paint drips. Across the salon, waxing and nail technicians help clients keep brows and cuticles in line, and specialized bridal services ensure memorable wedding days.
Whether they're dealing with a stressful job or a recurring sports injury, visitors to Holistic Health Massage Therapy will find that licensed massage therapist Jason Daniels takes a thorough—and thoroughly custom—approach to their ailments. He works closely with each client to determine not just where it hurts but why. After an initial consultation, Daniels deploys a wide variety of techniques, from deep-tissue manipulation for chronic pain to Swedish massage after a taxing trip to Ikea. He also advises clients on ways to stay healthy and prevent future injuries, encouraging them to stretch, eat right, and even seek out referrals to other holistic specialists.
Patrons of Park West Barber School not only get the satisfaction of knowing they'll be treated to services that are as wallet friendly as they are relaxing, they also get the pleasure of helping aspiring barbers hone their skills to prepare for future careers as barbers or scissors-wielding ninjas. Park West's students can take care of one’s most basic haircare needs with a quick shampoo and haircut or indulge clients a little more with a soothing scalp or hot-oil treatment or an old-fashioned hot shave.
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.
Using the Pravana professional line of hair products, stylist and owner Brad beautifies hair with colors, cuts, and styles. The private salon allows Brad to focus his full attention on clients, who can relax and chat about their day without having to shout over the chatter of a noisy salon. Natural light pours through large windows in the in-home salon and shines on hardwood floors, where silky-haired clients can lie down to impersonate shag-carpets.
Kneading Relief’s founder, licensed massage therapist Misty Burnette, specializes in Swedish, deep-tissue, and pregnancy modalities. In sessions at her office, her dexterous digits work to soothe soreness, increase circulatory activity, and improve range of motion for more fluid popping and locking when hailing cabs. Misty also offers massages for the head and the feet, and chair massage is available for company functions, parties, and lemonade stands.
