Though Skin Essentials Skincare Studio & Day Spa owner Katherine Bocanegra found her way into the spa industry by coincidence, she discovered a genuine passion for helping others while working with beauty professionals across the country. In addition to mastering treatments using Skin Script products, her team of licensed aestheticians educates each one of their clients so they may continue their skincare routine at home or even in space.
Inside the spa, cascading water places guests at ease as they sit in round cherry-wood chairs. All services take place in private treatment rooms equipped with soft beds or chairs and unique d?cor, such as silky, gold curtains that glow by candlelight.
Following complimentary consultations, the team at Evans & Co. Salon transforms hairstyles with precise color treatments, using a variety of quality products including Pureology, Redken, Bare Escentuals, and Unite. Though they specialize in color, the team also offers special-occasion styling and blowouts.
Spa days are meant to be relaxing retreats, but often focus more on beauty services than actual relaxation. The Kinetic Mind Body Wellness Center offers an alternative, what owner Stephanie Carper-Smith calls a Wellness Day.
Staffers encourage each person to kick off their Wellness Day by admiring the visual beauty of the center, including the fine art that bedecks the walls. While guests reflect, the staff plies them with glasses of water or hot cups of tea sweetened with organic honey or agave.
These may include everything from a relaxing massage and acupuncture to a structured fitness class, such as yoga. Full-spectrum infrared saunas can help clients by elevating core temperatures, lowering blood pressure, and even jump-starting the metabolic processes that contribute to weight loss. The center also provides nutritional therapy and holistic health coaching, a gentle form of guidance that doesn't involve anybody in shorts blowing whistles and shouting, "Get healthier, son!"

Merle Norman Cosmetics' name comes from Merle Nethercutt Norman, who founded the company back in the 1920s. Initially, she made beauty products just for her family and friends, but she was so successful?especially with her "try before you buy" philosophy, which back then was quite unusual?that a full-fledged makeup company grew up around her. Nowadays, the company is still thriving and is now run by Merle's nephew. Their products, all made in the United States and modernized since Merle's early days, include makeup in sheer and saturated hues, a line of skincare products, and assorted perfumes.
