Blueberry Gardens' seasoned instructors cultivate whole-body health with a schedule of multi-level classes inspired by ParaYoga, Anusara, and body-balance methods. A composite of breath and movement, ParaYoga challenges students to prod the body's upper limits of flexibility and strength through vigorous postures such as downward dog, dolphin plank, and recumbent Andrew Carnegie. Fueled by an uplifting philosophy, Anusara yoga encourages students to honor their differences, limitations, and talents, and body-balance yoga integrates the body and mind through asanas inspired by Protean animorphs. Each 90-minute class includes mats and props and, if missed, can be substituted in any of the other summer sessions.
The welcoming staff of Mirrors Barbershop clips head threads into newly flattering arrays before luxuriously sloughing away facial hair during straight-razor shaves. During the men's haircut, barbers shear superfluous head threads as clients repose in plush chairs at old-fashioned styling stations, complete with gold- and brown-framed mirrors and windmill-powered blow-dryers. After manes are tamed, a strap-sharpened blade deftly scrapes away at unwanted cheek fuzz. Otherwise, a kids' cut trims hair into manageable styles for a youthful 'do that's as dapper as a three-piece Bob the Builder suit.

At Jamachi Plastic Surgery & Medi-Spa, a diverse team of practitioners helps beautify clients from head to toenail. At the helm is plastic surgeon Dr. Emeka Onyewu, who has performed thousands of procedures—with a specialty in breast surgeries and liposuction—earning him a level of expertise that's been shared on news programs such as NBC 4. He's joined by Dr. Adaku Onukogu, a board-certified internist who administers flu shots and assists patients with managing their weight, overall health, and well-being.
Nail technicians, massage therapists, and aestheticians head up Jamachi's spa services, which are performed at mani-pedi stations or in treatment rooms. Aesthetician Trina McIntosh draws upon postgraduate training at the International Dermal Institute when revivifying faces with custom blends of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. April Parnell softens hands and feet with such specialty ingredients as champagne, olive oil, and happy unicorn tears during mani-pedis, and massage therapists Nmaku Onyewu and Joel Price lure stress out of bodies with customized techniques.
Maisie Dunbar feels that she was born to be an artist, though the human body is her canvas and her palette is made up not of paint, but of makeup and quality skincare products. Within her artist's studio, Maisie Dunbar Spa Lounge, she and her staff take a holistic, nurturing approach to everything they do—whether they are smoothing rough skin, massaging stressed muscles, or coating nails in OPI polish. Maisie’s dedication to the beauty industry has earned her numerous celebrity clients over the years as well as appearances at the Grammys and features in O, The Oprah Magazine and the Washington Post, according to the Silver Spring Patch.
Although Maisie’s toolbox contains trusted, high-end products from Essie and Moroccanoil, her continuing search for quality led her one step further than most spa owners to create her own makeup line—BluffaJo Cosmetics. These oil-free, mineral-based products allow skin to breathe normally while still managing to protect it from airborne pollutants and abrasive AM radio waves.
Style-seeking clients have relied on Salon Celine for more than 20 years. With a master colorist on staff, the studio specializes in hair hues, but stylists also snip, condition, and style with professional products. Color services constitute about 75 percent of Salon Celine's business, and sylists will work with clients to customize colors to their style and needs. Meanwhile, across the room, a dedicated brow specialist tidies eyes, and makeup artists and stylists spruce up brides with wedding-oriented beauty treatments. To pamper even the busiest of clients, the receptionist pencils in special evening and weekend appointments by request, and a retail boutique provides Moroccanoil, Pureology, Joico, Matrix, Goldwell, and Coppola products to use at home.
