A chandelier decked out with glass teardrops hangs over slate floors and eclectic decorations inside Sole'renity's historic building, which dates back more than a century. Zebra-striped Victorian-style chairs stand in the waiting area, where the splash of cascading water sounds out from small stone fountains. At nail stations farther inside, techs polish nails and provide paraffin-wax soaks for the toes of clients seated in damask chairs. Massages soothe muscles with hot stones and essential oils, and facials refresh visages by clearing acne, renewing aging skin, and removing expressions stuck on the face after last night's nightmares.
As far back as she can remember, Mary Shupert always loved styling hair and giving friends makeovers. As she grew, that passion evolved into a desire to help people take care of their skin. She earned her cosmetology license and opened Skin and Hair by Mary, where she still cuts and styles hair and applies make-up. The bulk of her services, however, relate to skin care. She uses peels and facials to improve the health and look of skin. She even works with tattoos, removing them or restoring and brightening them. While she goes about a treatment, she helps clients relax by playing classical music and offering them a glass of wine, a time-honored method of producing rosy cheeks.

While the sun spends most of its day in the sky, it still finds time to hang out in The Riviera Tanning Spa, teaching five different levels of Ergoline tanning beds how to bronze bodies with color that looks like it came from the star itself. From the Ambition bed’s beginner-friendly 120-watt bulbs to the Excellence 800’s simmering 520-watt heaters, tanners of all levels can boost golden hues in as little as 10 minutes. Thanks to their large facility, Riveria can accommodate a high influx of individuals without requiring appointments. Their Autobronzer system also reduced peaked appearances without UV exposure, spraying skin with three levels of sunless solutions that add color that won’t run, streak, or turn blue when placed under a black light.
