Trina Harper and Tracy Roberts met while studying aesthetics at Douglas J Aveda Institute, and bonded over their mutual love of helping customers feel beautiful both inside and out. They continue this mission at the full-service spa that they co-own, Evolution Skin Care Studio. Here, facials, body treatments, and massages target myriad skin issues. Retexturing facials, for instance, work to revitalize dull, dehydrated skin, and detoxifying body treatments use ingredients such as Dead Sea mud, sea salt, and jojoba oil to smooth skin that's coarsened by age, lack of moisture, or the cold, hard facts of life.
But Evolution takes its personalized skincare treatments one step further. Through her work as an aesthetician, Trina began to notice that those suffering from cancer dealt with unique skin issues that required a specialized and delicate touch. So the entire staff became trained and certified in oncology aesthetics, learning how to treat skin that's been compromised by chemotherapy treatments or other illnesses. Thanks to these specialized treatments, clients struggling through health challenges get the chance to relax in a soothing spa environment.
Perfection is in the details. That's why the aesthetic techs of Beauty Bare and Brows focus on the nuances on your look?from the shape of your brows to the color of your toenails. Stop by for eyelash enhancements, facial and body waxing, or mani-pedi services.
As the models of the African World Festival’s Detroit Rocks the Runway fashion show sauntered down the runway at Hart Plaza, some onlookers had to remind themselves that the show was about clothing. The hairstyling team nearly stole the show with their gravity-defying styles, but one could hardly blame them. After all, they’re used to doing the same every day at Zenru the salon, a multicultural salon where they specialize in adding color and texture to ethnic hair. Beyond flattering cuts and styles, their menu of services includes color retouches and personalized deep-conditioning treatments. Perms transform straight strands into crowns of bouncy curls, and sew-in extensions give hair enough length to double as a carpet when walking backward across dirty floors.
For more than 10 years, the Downtown Ferndale Salon Rehe has been a site for beauty transformation.

Within the red-and-black-themed Dye Hair Salon, stylists transform patrons' looks with precise cuts and coloring services. They utilize Redken products and the sulfate-free Pureology line, which includes a 100% vegan collection and formulas with an AntiFadeComplex to extend the life of color treatments. The salon's reception area greets guests with a curvy, red-cushioned sofa that looks like it was harvested from a trendy nightclub or Buck Rogers' foyer.
The vivid blue walls, red furnishings, and dynamic artwork of Salon Alliance illustrate the stylists? commitment to color?a commitment further emphasized by Redken Color certifications, ammonia-free coloring solutions, and skill at smoothing and covering gray hair.
