The staff at Plaza 101 Salon and Spa helps clients look their best from crown to toenail, cultivating elegant looks amid stately surroundings of exposed brick and mahogany furnishings. In addition to trimming wayward strands, the stylists can invent a dramatic new look by using highlights or lowlights to add depth and dimension. The salon's massage therapist designs custom sessions that can incorporate a mélange of Swedish, deep-tissue, shiatsu, myofascial-release, and reiki therapies in order to address each individual's needs. While the nail technicians beautify digits with the rejuvenating benefits of paraffin dips and Dead Sea salt, Dr. Debra Mowery steps in to offer physician-supervised cosmetic procedures, including injectable dermal fillers, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion sessions that can improve the skin's tone, texture, and bioluminescent capabilities.
After a long and stressful day, some find a trip to the bar a nice way to relax and blow off steam.

Its menu features a curated selection of skincare treatments that are designed to reduce the appearance of lines, improve complexions, and help the entire body and mind relax. Beyond the face, The Skin Bar's specialists dole out custom airbrush spray tans and attach long-lasting eyelash extensions.
As an aesthetician, Brandy Rich spends nearly every day up close and personal with her clients’ faces. She has seen it all—from troublesome acne to irritated and dry skin—and she works her magic to address every problem.

When problematic skin quiets down, Brandy’s job as a makeup artist kicks in. She enhances brides’ natural beauty with Temptu Pro airbrush makeup, teaches everyday folk how to properly apply eyeliner, and applies eye-catching lash extensions for added drama when blinking.
