Within A New You Salon and Spa's 1,200-square-foot studio, aestheticians employ organic products and gentle waxes to oust unwanted hair and refine complexions. Five stylists man haircutting stations in the main salon area, and a warren of private treatment rooms allows aestheticians to cleanse pores with organic ingredients or wax away unwanted hair in privacy. During waxing services, staff members cut down on discomfort by using numbing antiseptics, gentle lavender or zinc waxes, and a promise of monthly postcards to suddenly lonesome hairs as they de-fuzz bodies.
Nails by Jamie's eponymous nail technician caters to cuticles of the fingers and toes from within the confines of her French-themed salon. Jamie and her staff luxuriate clients with relaxing services that indulge not only nails, but also palates with a glass of tea or wine. After feet exit their shoes or an antagonistic neighbor's flower bush, they plop into a warm bath as their upper floors recline on a sleek and sanitary new pedicure station during the one-hour spa pedicure. While bubbles and jets tickle tension from toes, a massage accomplishes the same on calves but with firm pressure and smooth strokes. Once nails and skin have softened, techs scrub feet and treat calluses. When both fingernails and toenails have been trimmed, treated, and shaped, the surface is prepped for polish. Nails are draped with an ensemble of color that displays a conservative sheen or an extreme sky blue to make fingertips invisible when waving on a clear day. Customers can check out the online gallery to see some of Jamie’s past cuticle creations.
BRIA Bodycare pampers peds, heads, and eyeball awnings with earth-conscious products in a boutique-style setting. Coddle hamburger grabbers and guitar-pedal pushers with a mani-pedi, which grooms, moisturizes, and polishes keratin sheaths and treats feet to an essential-oil-infused soak and all-over foot scrub. Keep keratin capes wondrously fluttering with BRIA’s hair package, which includes a scalp treatment, massage, cut, and style. Or use your lashes to bat out hardheaded grease fires with BRIA’s 75-minute eyelash-extension treatment.
High Maintenance Salon tidies tattered body frames with a menu of titivating salon and spa services. The facial, which is customized according to skin type, pampers the place where smiles and winks live, offering it blends of berry, chocolate, pumpkin, and other treatments in exchange for a rejuvenated appearance; a microdermabrasion seals the procedure with a deep-reaching exfoliation.

What are some of your most popular services? What do you think clients love them so much?
The Beauty Room's most popular services are my micro-peel facials, Brazilians, and spray tans. My clients love these services because they are all results-based services using high-quality products. Client's come in, relax, and get to feel instantly more beautiful and spoiled.
A micro peel is a facial that includes microdermabrasion plus a chemical peel, so you get ultimate exfoliation both mechanically and chemically for amazing results. Diamond-tip microdermabrasion mechanically exfoliates your skin, preparing it for a custom chemical peel that includes a cocktail of perfecting ingredients for you specific skin's needs. Your skin will immediately glow, but over the course of a week continue to shine. Four to six treatments are recommended for best results.
Brazilians are performed with advanced waxing techniques and high-quality gentle products. If you are looking for a safe and gentle waxing experience, I'm the right aesthetician for you.
My spray tan technique and solution has been perfected to ensure a natural, even brown tan every time. The Beauty Room spray tan uses the best sunless tanning products in the industry to ensure that your tan looks natural and lasts as long as possible. My products are safe, organic, paraben-free, non-sticky and odorless. Unlike Mystic Tans, I combine natural ingredients and the latest technology to provide you with a streak-free, natural-looking tan that will never leave you looking orange.
Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
RAYA is a European quality skincare line that is affordable yet yields good results. [We also use] PCA (Physicians Care Alliance) Skin. They set the bar high when it comes to innovative skin care, being acknowledged in prominent medical textbooks as the originator of advanced blended chemical peel formulations. I want to build a successful practice and achieve the most effective results using PCA Skin and RAYA daily-care products and professional treatments.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
The two most common beauty mistakes I see potential clients making are not using high-quality, results-based products at home and not seeing a properly educated aesthetician. Just like you brush and floss your teeth twice a day between dental visits, you need to have quality home care for your skin twice a day. Sun protection and gentle exfoliation are the two most important things you can do for your skin on a daily basis. I'm also a firm believer in masking twice a week and at-home facial massages once a week with nourishing oils. Along with monthly aesthetic, work clients need to be taking care of their skin at home. I encourage everyone to come in and get educated about their skin. I'm full of knowledge and willing to share it with you.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Aesthetics is what I’m truly passionate about, and it shows with each and every client I serve. I take pride in all the services I perform and I love to spoil and make every client feel special. I’m genuinely interested in product knowledge and chemistry, which is proven with my bachelor of science in biology and continuing education. I love to serve others and I’m thrilled to perform result-based services. Through research, trial and error, years of experimenting, and working closely with a chemical engineer, I have found the highest quality products and services to offer. I value the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience with you.
