Charlotte Williams, doesn't just want to create exquisite hairstyles for her clients?she wants to give them a better look than anyone else could, including the Genie from Disney's Aladdin and Ice Cube's character from Disney's Barbershop. She has successfully honed this competitive nature in haircutting battles in the United States and abroad, where she scored accolades for her cuts, colors, and styles.
Today, Charlotte inspires her stylists to satisfy each client as they twist hair into updos, relax stressed hair, and touch up color, in addition to a host of other salon services. Charlotte and her staff members are also color educators who specialize in Enjoy professional haircare products, which are organic, vegan, and designed to be gentle on sensitive skin, unlike the business end of a pro wrestler's hand.

The dedicated medical and aesthetic team at We Love Healthy Living refurbishes facades with exfoliating chemical peel treatments in their relaxing clinic. Before the half-hour Jessner chemical peel, a deft aesthetician cleanses facades to purge surface dirt, debris, and stuck-on thoughts. Following the face refresher, an exfoliating serum of resorcinol, salicylic, and lactic acids penetrates the outermost skin shell, triggering sluggish exterior skin to shed naturally. Within a few days, dead skin and unwanted Lone Ranger masks peel away to unveil more vibrant subsurface flesh, with minimized fine lines, acne, and sun damage.
