The stylists at HiLites Hair Salon treat hair like a canvas. Sculptured shapes, unearthly colors, and even highlights that traverse the head horizontally or diagonally are within the reach of the stylists' skilled hands. Of course, the salon excels at timeless styles as well, crafting layered strands or clean spiral curls with the skill of a fashion-conscious pasta chef and smoothing out unmanageable strands with relaxers, keratin treatments, and five different strengthening packages. Once the hair has been perfected, clients can move on to more visage-centered services such as facials, waxes, and makeup applications.
Blueberry Gardens' seasoned instructors cultivate whole-body health with a schedule of multi-level classes inspired by ParaYoga, Anusara, and body-balance methods. A composite of breath and movement, ParaYoga challenges students to prod the body's upper limits of flexibility and strength through vigorous postures such as downward dog, dolphin plank, and recumbent Andrew Carnegie. Fueled by an uplifting philosophy, Anusara yoga encourages students to honor their differences, limitations, and talents, and body-balance yoga integrates the body and mind through asanas inspired by Protean animorphs. Each 90-minute class includes mats and props and, if missed, can be substituted in any of the other summer sessions.
