Belair’s Salon was the first salon color specialist Sherrie Snyder owned. Though she went on to own two others during her more-than-26-year beauty career, she’s returned to Belair’s, and to her it feels like “home.” She wants her guests to feel just as welcome as she and her team, including updo specialist Beka, twist hair into elegant updos and coat nails with shades of OPI polish. They treat clients to relaxation massages and wax away hairs that are unwanted, like ketchup stains on the deed to a tomato farm. Sherrie and company also pamper away tension via facials and conditioning treatments, among other beauty services.
Pure Elegance Body Sculpting Day Spa uses gentle, pain-free procedures to tighten skin marked by cellulite and minor scarring. Microcurrent therapies send tiny amounts of electricity into the face or body to tighten skin and muscles, resulting in smoother surfaces and reduced visibility of age lines or sagging waistlines. For skin afflictions such as stretch marks or uneven pigmentation, the technicians use LED light to swiftly erase etchings as though they were grocery lists penciled on imaginary parchment. Because Pure Elegance specializes in noninvasive procedures, most trips to the spa conclude in less than an hour with no requisite downtime.
Everybody’s Health began in 1998 as Western Row Chiropractic and kept the moniker until 2004. It was then that owner Doctor of Chiropractic David Berring decided to expand it to a full-service wellness center that combined the best of traditional and alternative therapies, and catered to clients of all ages. Equipped with eight chiropractors, multiple licensed massage therapists, a reiki master, and hypnotherapist, the center’s four locations continue to straighten spines and alleviate pain through quality chiropractic care, but can now extend their healing prowess to encompass everything from tension-reliving reflexology to exercise programs that focus on common problem areas such as the abs or elbows. The staff can also work to help patients improve their overall health by creating custom weight-loss strategies, and may recommend hypnosis as a way to heal personal problems or train the brain to remember to take its vitamins whenever the doorbell rings.
A green office, Everybody’s Health is prides itself on being paperless, relying instead on the use of technology to collect patient information and glazed donuts to take the place of office sticky notes.
