Aesthetician Jodi customizes her facials to ensure that each client’s issues are addressed. She focuses on fighting acne, sopping up excess oil, and smoothing fine lines. A microdermabrasion wand helps her remove the outer layers of dead skin cells, so skin looks billions of seconds younger. She also happily waxes off unwanted facial fuzz for a smooth surface.
Lori Lierman's goal is to breathe fresh air into her clients' personal styles by crafting new and elegant haircuts. She uses the space at Spa Joli to offer everything from haircuts to coloring treatments in order to craft a hairdo that jives with the client's own features and lifestyle.
Jeanne knows firsthand the power of anti-aging treatments. Though the aesthetician admits to being of a certain age, she?s maintained a youthful appearance with the help of hydropeptides. After her first treatment, Jeanne thought, ?Oh my God?if it works for me at this age, it can work for anyone else.?
Beyond appreciating skincare's results, Jeanne understands how it works. She knows that keeping skin in top shape requires more than just a facial every once in a while. That?s why she couples all of her treatments with skincare tips, such as what ingredients to look for in skincare products, nutrition tips for healthy complexions, and which microdermabrasion crystals make for the prettiest earrings. ?I want them to be knowledgeable,? she says of her clients. ?I want them to have the power and know what?s going on.?

From the 1940s until 2003, Mom’s Pies flanked Highway 126 in Vida. The hearty fare sustained road trippers on long drives, but it was the homemade pies that made the eatery famous and kept its doors swinging all summer long. Restaurateur Lou Sangermano’s parents owned the eatery before he purchased it from them, later selling the road-stop building in 2003. But the allure of the popular pies his parents made stuck with him, and in 2011 Sangermano reopened the shop as a pie-only destination at Valley River Center, in a space much closer to the crowds who always loved his family’s pies.
Scrapping most of the former restaurant menu to focus on its beloved pies, the new Mom’s Pies bakes 10 different pie flavors each day to sell by the slice, whole pie, or fresh-baked whiff. Visitors who ate at the original location back in the day can taste some of the same flavors they formerly craved, as each pie is still baked according to the pie shop’s original 1940s recipes that called for fresh, whole ingredients, such as locally picked berries.
