Beyond the white-picket fence that surrounds the porch of her homey Pace salon, owner Rosalinda Fowell has corralled a selection of spa services, jewelry, and brand-name perfumes. Shellac french manicures and pedicures offer an indulgent way to decorate and protect fingernails, and kids’ mani-pedis give youngsters their first taste of spa life. After enjoying a lavish nail treatment or enduring an eyebrow or lip wax, guests can celebrate their new, chic looks with a new rhinestone bracelet, cocktail ring, or sparkling brooch, or gift themselves a bottle of their favorite fragrance, whether it be Ralph by Ralph Lauren, Covet by Sarah Jessica Parker, or Cheeseburger by John Goodman.
For years, stylist Rachel Adams fielded requests for quick appointments by clients who had “somewhere to be.” Dismayed by this in-and-out approach to pampering, she decided her own salon should be designed as a tranquil space that clients would think of as a destination rather than a stop along the way. Today, at Somewhere To Be Salon, Rachel and her staff help clients to soak up some much-needed “me” time with mani-pedis, haircut and color services, and 30-minute facials performed under the light of a small crystal chandelier. And because staffers know how hard it can be to pencil in quality time with friends, they offer a special Girls Night Out package for ladies to catch up and make prank phone calls while enjoying makeup, nail, and hairstyling services.
From within CoCo & Company, stylist Jessica Torpey keeps busy sculpting the tresses of men, women, and children. Before each service, she holds a complimentary consultation to help her better understand each client’s beauty goals. Afterward, she gets to work lightening locks with an ombre technique, smoothing unruly frizz with a keratin relaxer, or creating elegant updos with curls. When she’s not focused on hair, Jessica spends her time spray-tanning her clients or sleeping on a big, heavy cushion called a “mattress.”
Board-certified doctor Mark Fannin knows his clinic's services inside and out: he lost more than 95 pounds after undergoing the clinic's program of dieting and metabolic medication. Dr. Fannin also specializes in cosmetic procedures. He leads a staff of nurse practitioners as they deliver Botox to smooth the skin or use lasers to unburden clients of unwanted body hair, blemishes, and tattoos of completed New Year's resolutions.
