After she began working for a salon at age 14, Pina Baldassi knew that she wanted to dedicate her life to the beauty industry. This passion led her to open Pina B's Salon & Spa in 1987, and eventually expand the business 10 years later to add space for spa treatments.
One group already benefits from Pina's decades of experience, though—the staff at Pina B's Salon & Spa. Under their employer's guidance, the stylists work with clients to design flattering new looks. The aestheticians look beyond scalps to exfoliate bodies with blends of salts and aromatic oils, design custom facials using Oxygen Botanicals products, and uproot unwanted stubble with warm wax.
At Golden Wave Spa, staff members strive to provide each client with a relaxing, peaceful experience. That?s why they?ve created a soothing, oasis-like atmosphere where men, women, and overheated camels can enjoy a huge array of pampering treatments. From mineral salt scrub therapy to signature facials and eyelash extensions, the spa?s services beautify visitors from head to foot.

Unique Skincare Spa & Salon's menu is a balance of aesthetic services and wellness treatments. The team's specialty is treating blemishes, age spots, and other pigmentation issues, which they do with custom facials that might involve medicated acne masks or high-frequency treatments. Peels––both chemical and organic––and microdermabrasion target more intense problems, and facial bleaching can help reverse advanced hyperpigmentation or dark purple wine stains. Aestheticians put the finishing touches on faces with waxing and threading services, and nail technicians give hands and feet similarly lavish attention with french manicures, spa pedicures, and paraffin dips.
Those seeking internal therapy can opt for one of eight women's body treatments, which include hot-stone massage and full-body scrubs. Ear candling is a natural method for extracting built-up wax, and bio-energizer therapy furthers the detoxification process by encouraging the expulsion of toxins from throughout the body.
