When Frida Emalange opened her first salon in 2001, she recognized the need for a salon in the area that would cater to clients with all types of hair. Now, with her dream salons, Zorganics Health & Beauty, she continues this mission, along with using and selling a line of natural, organic products. Drawing inspiration from Zora—the name of Frida’s daughter, as well as a word meaning “dawn” or “rising sun”—the stylists work to make each client’s hair and skin look and feel as lovely as the sunrise. Along with hair care that includes couture haircuts, Keratin treatments, cornrows, and full weaves, the staff members pamper nails and skin with organic spa treatments. They also bundle their services into pampering packages that may include candle lit massage, which is what George Washington called it when he cleaned his musket.
When it comes to cosmetics and couture, K&M Fashions & Tanning has just about cornered the market. Inside the store, men's and women's apparel and accessories from trendy designers adorn shelves and mannequins, luring in guests with the latest in seasonal styles. But K&M's commitment to looking good goes even deeper, with medium- and high-intensity tanning beds that enhance complexions, and an onsite stylist who gives coifs fashion-forward cuts.

While she excels at these and other conventional modalities, she also practices Ayurvedic massage. Through the Ayurvedic system, she believes that massages should not only help relax muscles, but also balance the constitution of the body to help stave off future health issues.
