For the past decade, Kelly Beaudry has honed her hairstyling techniques by learning the latest trends and tips at coloring shows and workshops held all along the East Coast. After making the trip from Boston, Kelly settled into Revive Salon and Spa, where she revamps hair with Goldwell, Joico, and Affinage hair dyes. In addition, Kenra haircare products and keratin treatments leave manes shinier and smoother than the freshly polished axes lumberjacks always bring to formal events.
Though Stephanie Bailey once studied with skincare giants—Dr. Murad and Dr. Obagi of their eponymous medical-grade lines—her heart wasn't in it. "[I] just couldn't pull away from what I love most, which is skincare for the hands and feet," she says. Once she realized that, Bailey developed her own waterless pedicure style that eschews traditional water jets in her pedicures to eliminate the concern of cross contamination and accidental foot drowning. After beautifying the digits of cheerleaders from the Dallas Cowboys and Mavericks, she moved to Idaho and applied her 28 years of experience to Nails by Stephanie at Revive Salon.
The beauty mavens at Earthly Beauty Organic Salon pamper tresses, faces, and bodies with an arsenal of services, using mostly organic products. Gain instant gratification by vanquishing split ends with a haircut and style ($20 for men; $30 for women), or emphasize the nose’s best angle with a professional dusting of mineral make-up ($35). The Signature Facial mollycoddles epidermises with fruit- and vegetable-flavored products to confront individual concerns, such as acne or aging ($65 for 60 min.; $80 for 75 min.), and a 45-minute Manual Dermabrasion resurfaces pores and evicts fine lines, black heads, and wrinkles ($75). A lineup of massage treatments includes a 90-minute rub-down using hot and cold stones with the La Stone treatment ($65), or a 60- or 90-minute Swedish kneading ($45–$60) to soothe aches and teach muscles to relax and demur when dared to pick up a two-ton tricycle. Once nestled between the salon’s vibrant orange walls, guests can sip organic coffee or tea as their eyes gallivant colorful paintings, soft candles, and elegant floral arrangements.
From inside Flawless Full Service Salon, skilled aesthetician Stephanie Hendrickson transforms sparse eye strands into luscious lashes with individually applied synthetic extensions. Her deft hands affix new lashes with medical-grade adhesive until eyes obtain a naturally full look or bear fringe long enough to fan the person sitting opposite. She also embellishes appearances with permanent makeup, shaving precious minutes off of morning routines.
The learned team of doctors and therapists at Avanti Health assuage chronic discomfort, pain from personal injury, and other health conditions with chiropractic and massage services. Before dipping into the dim, cozy treatment rooms, clients step into the Avanti Health office, which is illuminated by floor-to-ceiling windows that cast natural light upon a marble-top reception desk, verdant potted plants, and shadows giving each other massages. Fully dedicated to patrons' overall wellness, the staff also helps patrons shed excess pounds with programs for medical weight loss, dieting, and exercise.
Founded in 1968 by the county’s first physical therapist, North Idaho Physical Therapy quickly made a name for itself by helping local athletes, loggers, and miners get back to doing what they do best. More than four decades later, the center has expanded to three locations and taken on a team of medical specialists whose expertise ranges from massage therapy to chiropractic. Though their specialties are diverse, the staff members share one important thing in common: They all emphasize individual care through customized treatment programs. These programs may include rehabilitative therapies, soothing ashiatsu massages, or strength training in preparation for long days of logging or sawing slow desktop computers in half.
Given the name, it should come as no surprise that Elements Therapeutic Massage pays extra attention to the basic elements of massage. One of these is compassion, and it follows that the staff takes care to match each client with the therapist best suited for the job. Borrowing from different modalities, therapists calibrate each session to one of four distinct levels of pressure. These levels encompass everything from gentle strokes to deeper trigger-point work and may relieve ailments such as stress, chronic aches, and shoulders stuck in a permanent, perplexing shrug.
