Master stylist and Paul Mitchell National Educator Peter Packard leads a team of other talented stylists at Peter Alfred Salon. Along with haircuts and color, the stylists beautify locks with texture-transforming services, such as keratin smoothing treatments, deep-conditioning sessions, and talk therapy from a real lion's mane. Mani-pedi services get a boost with a choice of Paul Mitchell products infused with lemon-sage, lavender-mint, or tea-tree extracts for soft, beautifully scented hands and feet.
By mixing classic salon services and European spa services in an atmosphere as tranquil and effortlessly elegant as a candlelit bubble bath with Cary Grant, Fusions Inc. makes it easy for customers to bliss out as a staff of all-star beauticians pamper their outer peels. A microdermabrasion will gently sandblast dead skin and barnacles off your soul ship's figurehead. The even gentler hydrating facial will moisturize desert-dry dermises, and the anti-aging facial will strip away years of wear and tear, leaving customers with a rejuvenated flesh emoticon that glows like radioactive honey.

Aesthetics Etc. owner Ann Marie Ray strives to transform standard beauty services into relaxing sensory experiences. Her staff incorporates the flame-softened wax of collagen-infused candles into select massages, relies on brand-name gloProfessional products, and encourages clients to slip into cozy slippers and robes. Ann Marie's signature service is permanent-makeup application though, which is useful both for helping chemotherapy patients to aesthetically recover from the loss of their eyebrows or simply shortening a client?s daily face-prepping routine.
Before pursuing a career in makeup and skincare, Ann Marie spent seven years working a standard 9-to-5 job in finance. After years of persuasion and encouragement from her mother, a professional aesthetician, she left the corporate world and became a certified permanent-cosmetics specialist in 2002. Today, mother and daughter operate separate but noncompeting businesses, referring clients to one another for specific treatments or a second opinion on who left the milk out that one time in 1991.
The expert staff at Sacred Hour doesn’t view spa services as treatments, but as rituals. As such, staffers take each facial, massage, and waxing service seriously, applying products imported from Italy amid the flickering glow of candles and the tranquil drips of tabletop fountains.
All members of the business crew support a local charity and pledge to give away 1% of their gross earnings. Sacred Hour also matches every dollar raised with bills that are exfoliated and massaged until wrinkle-free.
For the last 25 years, the staff of skilled technicians at Wish Nails has groomed fingers and toes during manicures and pedicures using high quality nail care products. Nail technicians shape, groom, and affix miniature bowties to nails before finishing with vibrant OPI polish. Heavier-duty manicures include luxurious upgrades such as exfoliating sugar-scrub hand massages and chip-resistant shellac polish or gel acrylics.
