Licensed aesthetician Paula Brady, the founder of Spa Medica, first became interested in helping individuals highlight their best features as a judge for beauty pageants throughout the United States. A former Mrs. Texas herself, she applies the beauty secrets she's learned over the years in her practice, as she and her staff perform personalized skin consultations and craft custom skin solutions for each.
Elegant lanterns hang overhead like glowing teacups, illuminating the rich wood cabinetry and earthen clay tiles of En Gedi Salon.

The stylist transforms hair with professional cuts and coloring services, customizing treatments to accommodate each client's unique style and facial features. As Danita snips new hairdos, her fellow staffers busy themselves with facials, massages, and mani-pedis. Meanwhile, clients await appointments while sipping on complimentary coffee, tea, and soda.
Rebecca Johnson, owner of the eponymous Rebecca j Salon, formerly did makeup and hair for television, movies, and commercial prints. She also made over brides saying “I do,” or “You better not still be a frog after this,” during Disney fantasy weddings in Orlando. Now at her salon in Denver, Johnson draws on this wealth of knowledge and a selection of body-friendly products—including ammonia-free hair color and sulfate-free Kevin.Murphy styling products—to beautify clients.
She and her staff specialize in haircuts, color, and Hotheads tape hair extensions, which adhere directly to strands so that they lie flush with natural locks. Johnson still applies makeup for everyday or special occasions, using an airbrush for a smooth finish.
Essential Massage's Denise LeMere suffered from chronic neck pain and migraines and saw no end in sight. This was all before she discovered the healing powers of massage therapy. Now a licensed therapist, she underpins each session with the soothing strokes of swedish massage, adding more in-depth techniques from deep-tissue and TMJD if necessary. Denise also specializes in acupressure, which pinpoints the intersections of the body's energy flow to restore proper functioning without installing a subdermal traffic light.
