Scents of Serenity owner Melanie Mueller believes that putting your best face forward means using organic and natural skincare products. That's why her team of aestheticians employs the Éminence Organic Skin Care line, whose concoctions are free of artificial colors, synthetic perfumes, and harsh chemicals, such as parabens and Twinkie filling. Guests can wander to the spa's cozy lobby to purchase many of these elixirs, strolling across hardwood floors to a centerpiece shelf stocked with bottles, creams, and the emerald leaves of aloe plants.
Mueller's team is an educated bunch; all aestheticians are licensed by the Virginia Board of Cosmetology, and all massage therapists are certified through the Virginia Board of Nursing, as well as the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. They dole out a variety of kneading techniques—from aromatherapy to hot stone—in treatment rooms canopied by cream-colored drapes and strings of luminescent orbs that melt into butter every time a patron says "ahhh."
The licensed technicians and aestheticians at Indulgence Salon and Boutique are ready to pamper guests from head to toe. Hair stylists enhance their cuts and colors with CHI and Redken products, nail technicians are fully stocked with OPI and CND products, and massage therapists melt away tension using Swedish, deep-tissue, and reflexology techniques. Meanwhile, aestheticians amp up facials and microdermabrasion treatments with their exclusive line of Van Lou products or bask in their luxurious tanning rooms featuring many special amenities for their clients. After an indulging day of salon services, guest may browse their boutique’s shelves displaying handmade jewelry, handbags, and customized clogs and other whimsical footwear such as Switch Flops or a Tervis Tumbler.
