It's serendipitous then that Southern Roots Salon's owner Kristy Hodson has seven years of experience manipulating hair to her clients' whims. Kristy can skew vintage with cute and classic wave or draw on her cutting-edge techniques for a modern punk cut or bright ombre highlights.

The Cutera NdYag Laser, outfitted with CoolGlide Xeo technology to keep skin cool and comfortable, is the backbone of Aesthetic Laser Medical Spa and Salon, performing services such as permanent hair reduction, tattoo and spider-vein removal, and nonablative skin therapy. Unlike other lasers, this FDA-cleared laser's longer wavelength allows it to diminish hair on all types of skin, including tan and dark, and it works on both coarse and fine hair. It can treat unsightly veins quicker than sclerotherapy, it can improve skin tone and texture, and it rarely if ever requires downtime. The Cutera system's beautifying efforts are aided by facials, magic, body wraps, and Dysport injections.

Mini-facials employ skin-soothers ripe with natural cleansers and creams to enhance glow without moth-baiting light bulbs. During or after the service, organically decompress in the easy chairs of Banana Tree's relaxation room, where guests can sip complimentary organic wine or chocolate-banana smoothies to soothe stomachs as well as minds.
