Daphne Hutton’s enthusiasm is obvious––even before the first snip. Each session begins with a private facial analysis, wherein she gets to know the client, discusses needs, and helps choose a flattering style. Then the transformation happens. Two decades of experience guide her as she sculpts sleek layers and decorates with color highlights. Guests can also solicit Daphne for a facial wax or retreat to a private room for bodywork session with the salon’s certified massage therapist, Tara Stoner.
Mother-daughter owners Brenda Willoughby and Ashton Wiley specialize in making women and men feel well-groomed and confident with a carefully selected menu of skincare, nailcare, and bodycare services. A team of nail techs and estheticians stands by ready to pamper clients from head to toe, and a boutique stocked with feminine accessories completes clients’ new makeovers like the frosting on a carrot. Nail technicians exfoliate phalanges and slather them in essential oils before polishing nails with products by OPI, LaLicious, and CND Shellac. Estheticians rely exclusively on natural, preservative-free skincare products by Sanitas to hydrate and cleanse countenances, and waxing sessions wick away unwanted hair with hard or soft waxes from Cirepil. On their way out, patrons can peruse the boutique’s purses, jewelry, and cashmere social-security cards.
Sunflower Spa’s fully licensed aestheticians and therapists couple their years of experience with an array of rejuvenating treatments to revitalize and beautify clients in a relaxing, inviting environment.

The laser-free treatment lasts 50 minutes and can leave skin feeling fresher and looking younger, restoring your natural glow to a high-pitched frequency only dogs can hear.
Like two peas in a pod, Shear Bliss Studios owners Annalise and Whitney stand side by side as they twirl and curl strands into traditional and trendy hair ?dos.

To ensure clients rejoice in their new styles, both ladies take the time to listen to salon-goers before helping them reach their beauty goals within the teal-, pink-, and purple-hued walls of the spacious beauty haven.
