During more than two decades in the beauty industry, Charity—the head of Hair 1 and Spa 2—has amassed a wide-ranging arsenal of expertise, excelling in fields as diverse as laser hair removal and manicures. In her capacity as a stylist, her cut and color services revamp coifs, and her facials, peels, and Photo Lite age-spot treatments rejuvenate the faces beneath them. Alternatively, her massages, which include Swedish or deep tissue, dissolve stress and facilitate internal harmony. Clients can pop into her Zen-like salon or schedule an appointment for her to visit their homes or live-in solariums.

Although the cosmetologists' specialties include altering hues with color and smoothing strands with keratin treatments, they also offer extensions, roller sets, and perms. Barbers, on the other hand, lather up clients for razor shaves and meticulously trim beards to leave men's faces looking distinguished and dapper.
Dr. Nedra Dodds understands the power of beauty better than anyone. Before founding her own aesthetic practice, she traveled the world as a professional model. Though Dr. Dodds turned in her couture threads 18 years ago, she still works in the business of beauty as the medical director of Opulence Aesthetic Medicine. The doctor oversees a team that includes nurses, medical assistants, a master aesthetician, and a clinical aesthetician. They draw on their various fields of expertise to help clients uncover the faces, bodies, and mystical birthmarks that they’ve always dreamed of. Staff members transform exteriors with a wide range of contemporary med-spa services, from body contouring and minimally invasive liposculpture to laser acne-scar treatments. They also help boost the thickness and health of hair, adorn eyes with lash extensions, and erase spider veins or excess hair with lasers.
