After working under platform artists for Redken and Paul Mitchell, master cosmetologist Carlos Flores opened Aqua Salon and Day Spa, a Paul Mitchell focus salon that emphasizes continuing education and training for its styling team. During services, the team unholsters premium products such as Aquage and Mitch, a Paul Mitchell line developed especially for men. Because the spa regularly styles both ladies and gents, the decor is neutral and posh, like the Supreme Court’s dressing room. Dramatic plants sprout from vases scattered around the spa, and suede seats and a cowhide rug decorate the lobby.
A cosmetic complex with décor ranging from the chic black tile of its salon to the day spa's bamboo-and-incense ambience, Aventine fills its space with a consummate roster of beautification treatments administered by a highly specialized staff. The classic massage (a $90 value) tailors its 60 minutes of total relaxation to your muscular map's spinal mountain range, flowing energy rivers, and buried treasure chests of stress. A signature 45-minute DermaSweep facial (a $127.50 value) mechanically extracts and exfoliates the face with a gentle vacuum, lifting away dead and deadbeat skin while combating the oxidative aging effects caused by years of reenacting Three Stooges shorts. The treatment begins with a consultation and keeps the skin relaxed throughout with a cleansing massage and therapeutic mask. A three-month membership ($297 value) to Aventine Spa treats members to a range of discounts on salon, massage, and aesthetic services.
Inspired by their twin boys, the family behind Green Heat Services decided to create a company that would improve the energy efficiency and health of their home. They had been in the indoor-heating-and-cooling business for more than a quarter century, and so applied their knowledge toward rounding up a capable crew and streamlining the experience for their patrons. A licensed HVAC technician oversees each team during installations and commands the use of portable negative pressure vacuums. In addition to helping families breathe easier via cleaner indoor air, the business lowers blood pressure by scheduling their visits in three-hour increments, rather than having clients wait all day for crews to arrive.
