Dr. Ellen Turner and her staff of aestheticians, physician's assistants, and medical assistants are passionate about what they do. In a mini-documentary about their practice, they all chime in about unearthing their clients' inner beauty and enhancing their self-confidence. Through their treatments, which range from facials to treatments for acne and rosacea, they focus on making a difference in their patients' lives. A lot of times this means bringing about change that makes patients happy to look in mirrors and unwilling to hide their faces beneath brown paper bags.

A socially responsible company, Great Clips also hosts haircut-a-thons, bake sales, and baked haircut sale-a-thons to benefit charities, including the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and Ronald McDonald House.
At First Impressions, aestheticians spruce up faces, relax backs, and pamper nails in 90-minute mini spa excursions. Technicians rub hands and feet with lavender- or honey-infused exfoliating scrubs, polishing skin to a healthy glow before coating nails in gel or Shellac polish, whose persistent grip clings to talons for up to two weeks, much like a shy toddler clutching a store mannequin’s leg. Toes can stretch out and luxuriate in a complimentary paraffin treatment, and faces emerge looking fresh and youthful after a treatment using all-natural products.
