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.
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.
The makeup artists at the organic beauty boutique apply 100% nontoxic beauty products, and during the half-hour makeup application, only the likes of RMS Beauty, Julie Hewett, Vapour, and other natural brands will grace your face. The Still Point's trained appliers will work with you to create a customized look for any special event or reality-show audition. Opt for a dramatic dusting of color to the cheeks to appear appropriately rosy, or request expertly lined eyes to enhance a striking facial feature, your earlobes. The application also includes detailed instructions on how to replicate the look in front of a mirror at home or in an amusement park.
As a photographer and stylist whose clients have appeared in Allure and Bazaar magazines, Hugo of Hugo Salon and Spa understands that his work doesn’t just involve making his clients look good when they leave his chair. His cuts, colors, and styles must have longevity so they can look just as stunning when the cameras are rolling, a service that he and his team can provide as well, including the impeccable styling and makeup. To that end, he staffs a knowledgeable team of stylists who remain on the cutting edge of beauty through continuing education. They follow Hugo’s lead in beautifying clients with sleek cuts, root and full colors, and highlights. They also provide Brazilian blowouts and Japanese thermal straightening treatments, making hair look as relaxed and shiny as Mr. Clean lounging in a sauna.
A long row of plush, khaki-toned pedicure chairs on raised platforms lines a bright yellow interior lit by hanging lamps. The studio's service list includes waxing and facials, although the Solar pros specialize in nailcare. A warm paraffin treatment or french tips can be added to classic or Solar Deluxe mani-pedis, or clients can opt for acrylics or shellac gel polish for longer-lasting color that, like a selfless poker player, resists chips. Solar's technicians also gussy up nails with colorful patterns and intricate freehand designs.
