At Bliss Beauty Lounge, bliss is genuinely a priority––each salon service comes with a luxurious scalp and temple massage, free of charge. However, beauty is an equally high priority for owner and stylist Natasha Miller. She specializes in edgy, razored pixies and precision color, and by collaborating with aesthetician Egypt Alston, she has created a salon with options beyond hair treatments. The team strips away unwanted stubble with custom waxes, for example, and enhances eyes with eyelash extensions, rather than by shrinking eyeballs.
Under the leadership of founder Christie Shumate, the licensed aestheticians at Transformations Spa and Skin Care Center perform custom skin treatments with detailed analysis. Shumate was inspired to form Transformations Spa and Skin Care Center after paying a visit to a plastic surgeon who, she discovered, donated his summer months to helping those who couldn't otherwise afford treatment to recover from burns, as well as working with children who were born with facial defects. She brought together a collection of less-risky aesthetic services designed to help her clients look and feel good about themselves, and now her staff offers laser cellulite reduction, custom facials, organic chemical peels, ear candling, and aqua foot detox.
Boosting her clients' confidence is the best part of Kelly Kim's job, she says, whether it be through body waxing or contouring. At Waxing by Kelly, the cosmetologist and waxing specialist applies her Aveda training to strip away unwanted hair using imported Satin Smooth products loaded with vitamins and natural oils. Kelly adeptly wields strip wax, hard wax, and film wax across sensitive regions of both men and women. In addition, she offers body-contouring services, which tighten and tone her clients' skin.
Housed within an inviting red-brick home, Cassandra?s Family Salon and Day Spa ushers clients into spacious rooms filled with natural light. Hair services commence at sleek white porcelain shampooing stations, and facials and body-sculpting treatments transpire in private treatment rooms dimmed by sturdy curtains. The salon also comprises a toddler-friendly playroom with books, toys, and a racecar activity rug where kids can get an early start on parallel-parking skills.
Stationed inside the tranquil Crescent Heights Hair Design studio, stylist Tonya Hatley cares for clients' hair and nails. She colors strands with eye-catching highlights, snips tresses into stylish coifs, and texturizes locks with perms and beach-wave curling treatments. She also puts a bold twist on french manicures by tipping nails in bright colors, such as blue and red, and adding nail art.
