Massage therapist Heather Barnhart discovered the healing properties of massage in 2007 after talking to friends who had recovered from injuries and surgeries with regular therapy. Heather quickly enrolled in courses, graduating at the top of her class and pulling in her certification in October of 2009. Now, at Advance Therapeutic Massage, she employs the targeted pressure of deep-tissue massage to oust chronic pain, long flowing strokes of Swedish massage to usher guests into deep relaxation, and the strain-soothing maneuvers of prenatal massage to send babies a Morse code message about stopping it with all the kicking.
Stylist Sung Miller has been fitting clients with exciting and beautiful new looks for more than 10 years. But before putting scissors to hair, she holds a consultation with clients, which she can do in Korean or English. She gets to know about their lifestyle and deepest hair desires while thoroughly examining their facial shape, skin tone, and other traits. She can update appearances with simple trims or transform clients with a full menu of all-over color, highlights, and perms, all while using professional Redken products.
Stylist Scot has broken away from the corporate hairstyling scene for more personalized one-on-one service, like when a basketball player grooms the hair of the opponent he's playing man defense against. Drawing from his training at Sunstate Hair Academy, he artfully constructs hair designs befitting clients' personalities and preferences, pushing the envelope of experimentation while never stepping over the clients' comfort threshold; consultations before cuts and color services see to that.
With the right expertise, an artist can sculpt many objects, from clay to a person's hair to a pound of butter. Tiffany Gagnon is an artist extraordinaire. Drawing on more than a decade of experience, she crafts classic waves and modern pixie cuts or transforms manes with bold color treatments and highlights. Salon guests may also request special-occasion updos or opt for specialty blow-out straightening to eliminate frizz.
At Elite Salon Suites—a collection of independently owned salon stalls—strands in need of expert styling will find David Ware at H. David Designs.
