Kindred Souls proprietor Linda Marriner isn't your average spa owner. She holds certification as a Reiki master, aesthetician, and massage therapist, and spent more than three decades working as a nurse. So it stands to reason that she is out to do more than just pamper bodies–-she aims to nourish and heal them as well. Here, she moisturizes and exfoliates skin with facials and peels performed using locally-made Sanitas skin care products. During therapeutic massage treatments, healing hands promote relaxation with Swedish treatments, keep lymphatic systems flowing, and soften the body's hard chocolate center with deep-tissue techniques.
In addition to helping patients feel healthy, young, and revitalized, Marriner proudly serves the community around her through her support for programs such as Hope Lives and Pathways Hospice.
The almost surreally quaint cottage occupied by No Regrets Hair Studio is open by appointment only. That's not because founder and head stylist Sheena Coatman keeps a light workload—quite the opposite. When the salon's not open, she's on the road working as an educator for the American Crew line of men's haircare products and increasing her own education.
Coatman has some help at No Regrets in the form of Cray Simpson, who has a similar background as an educator and a wealth of experience in extensions, wigs, and other forms of mane enhancement. Beyond the salon's aqua, pink, and lavender facade, the walls sport a collection of local art that changes to showcase a different artist each quarter.
Orchidée Salon & Spa’s staff believes that the power of pampering can bring out the inner beauty in anyone.

Edith offers a luxurious Death by Chocolate pedicure, which includes chocolate treats, a mimosa, and a hot chocolate foot scrub.
At Namaste Salon, a Bumble and bumble exclusive salon, Danae and Jordan ensure that each client gets their full attention, whether they're looking to update their looks with a completely new hairstyle or subtly enhance them with highlights. Along with fresh cuts and color, the salon's beauty experts revamp hair with extensions and keratin treatments. They also beautify bodies with spray tans, eyelash extensions, and polish digits with semi-permanent treatments, which stay chip-free for up to 14 days, no matter how many back massages you give to your coworkers.
As playfully stated on their web site, His & Her Salon has been "saving mullets and $12 haircuts alike since 2009." This emphasis on turning style catastrophes into stylish makeovers comes from the Paul Mitchell Focus salon's owner, Andrea Andrews. She makes sure each of her stylists stays on top of trends and emergency bangs resuscitation techniques through ongoing education. Ultimately, though, the staff cares most about helping clients showcase their individuality with every cut and style. Paul Mitchell products help.
Armed with advanced training in lasers and aesthetics, Charity helps her clients take control of their dermal destinies with corrective peels, spider-vein treatments, and electrolysis. She tackles acne with specialized regimens and goes after rosacea with bacteria-fighting solutions. Electrolysis zaps follicles by the only permanent means recognized by both the FDA and Thomas Edison, whereas vein treatments erase dilated vessels using radio frequency direct currents.
