Nestled in Green Gables Farm, Whole Body Studio and Spa nurtures holistic wellness with an array of salon and fitness services in a tranquil setting. Clients can tote dry or damaged head threads in for a softening and strengthening Moroccan Oil treatment, which soaks strands in a rich blend of protein, antioxidants, and argan oil to leave them as fortified as a bowl of cream of wheat, but with better body and bounce. The treatment seals in moisture with a process gentle enough for color-treated or processed hair, allowing stylists to wash away the serum and style newly silky tresses into a shiny, updated shape. Partial highlights enable heads to set select strands aglow with illuminating color that adds dimension and assists migrating birds in safe night landings, while a customized cut sees stylists snipping locks to exact specifications informed by the customer's input, trends, and current government regulations on bangs.
