Within Noreen's Hair Studio cream-colored walls lies the solution to soothing world-weary appendages and revitalizing hair, skin, and nails. To instill life into dull mitts and feet, staffers shape and polish nails and cuticles during spa and signature mani-pedis before bedecking each thumb with a replica of the thimble worn by Betsy Ross as she sewed America’s first pair of tweezers. Waxing rids bodies of unwanted fuzz, and the salon's other hair treatments help renew tired manes. They also cleanse and soothe skin with deep-cleansing facials. The salon stocks its cabinets with brand-name products such as OPI gel polish, as well as custom-made concoctions designed to tackle individual clients' needs.
Tan ’n Time's staff of skin bronzers maintains clean, quality Tan America equipment, bestowing patrons with consistently superb epidermal bronzing. Five levels of premium beds come universally equipped with facial bulbs and cool airflow, which cuffs its air jeans and strums an air guitar. At the Colonial Heights location, Ergoline 600 beds ($19/session) douse skin suits in the rays of 52 bulbs, four facial lamps, and shoulder tanners for maximum umber tones. Refusing to be outdone, the Chester and Hopewell locations house high-pressure Matrix booths ($25/session), which dole out 12-minute sessions that leave skin tints darker than Katie Couric's nightmares. For strengthened base-tans, a month in a super bed ($42.95) gradually piles on russet affectations, and one session in a VersaSpa sunless tanner ($25) voice-guides customers to UV-free bronzing. To keep tans from stressing out about extinction, Tan ’n Time's three locations provide customers with convenient tanning options all over town.
"Choose a job you love, and you will never work a day in your life". Since she was a child, Ashley Petet had heard this old adage repeated, but never believed it until enrolling in the Institute of Massage Therapies. There she found a deep satisfaction in helping others feel better. Under expert guidance, she fine-tuned her Swedish massage and trigger point techniques, as well as receiving education in cranio-sacral therapy, myofascial release, and energy healing. Now Ashley loves her job as a certified massage therapist and everyday slackens muscles in the comfort of her own Just Breathe Massage studio.
LaZahla Hair Salon & Day Spa pampers with a wide selection of services six days a week.

If some of those services weren't relaxing enough, massages knead away tense muscles during a stress-free 60- or 90-minute session.
