At Vaira's European Holistic Skin Care, Vaira pampers the epidermis with European spa treatments and a natural harvest of soothing herbs and scrubs. An experienced aesthetician who trained in Europe, Vaira aims to create a relaxing atmosphere for clients while providing personalized treatments. She uses exfoliating facial creams, which brim with natural ingredients such as collagen, essential oils, and vitamin C enzymes, all of which team up to imbue skin with the softness and sleekness of a laminated teddy bear. Aromatherapy calms the senses as she buffs away blemishes and expired skin cells during herbal body treatments and revitalizing sea-salt scrubs. She is also certified in Micro-Needling, a procedure which can help reduce signs of aging and improve skin tone. Vaira offers a pumpkin enzyme facial, which combines multiple forms of natural enzymes, gently sloughing off dead skin cells to help give a more healthy glow.
At American Barbershop, stylists work to resurrect the corner barbershops of yore, when striped poles spun out front and everybody knew each other's name. They're off to a good start—their red, white, and blue barber's pole twirls in front of the shop, and the vintage feeling continues inside, with red leather barber's chairs sidled up to antique wooden workstations stained dark with pale trim. They even have a rocking-horse haircut chair for kids or the tiny cowboys who mosey on in for a beard trim. The barbers offer hair services for men, women, and children, and keep their menu simple and no-fuss: haircuts and shampoos, along with beard trims for men and blow-dry styles for women.
