After gaining experience at several advanced training academies and prestigious salons, Donaylle Nicole channeled her ample styling skills into her own salon. At Donaylle Nicole Hair Studio, she leads a team that includes experienced stylists, aestheticians, and a facial specialist from the Bengston Institute. They employ Redken, Pureology, and ammonia-free hair products in their beautifying regimens. As the stylists perform precision haircuts and coloring services, aestheticians pamper other clients from head to toe with body wraps, pedicures, and professional makeup services with Mirabella products or colorful lacquers. To help spice up birthday and bachelorette parties, they also offer custom spa parties that can include massages, facials, and waxes.
The studio itself reflects the staff’s passion for aesthetic beauty. Exposed off-white brick walls attempt to hide behind diamond-shaped mirrors and flowing brown curtains. Rustic hardwood flooring evokes the deck of a pirate ship—only in the salon, the hair that falls onto it smells pleasant.
Led by Doctor of Chiropractic Matt Dirkse, the team at HealthZone Chiropractic works with clients to relieve back pain, improve posture, and realign spines. Dr. Dirkse not only treats adults but also works with children to ensure their spines and nervous systems develop properly so that they can reach things on high shelves and high-five most Abraham Lincoln impersonators. HealthZone Chiropractic's seasoned massage therapist augments treatment plans with therapeutic- and relaxation-based muscle work.
While Doctor of Chiropractic Mike Morea’s hands adjust spines, his healing touch extends beyond the back, relieving pain throughout the limbs and up into sinuses. To improve patients’ overall well-being, Dr. Morea combines chiropractic adjustments and massage, addressing current injuries or chronic pain. The official chiropractor of the Muskegon Lumberjacks, Dr. Morea knows how to tackle even chronic sports injuries with care and sensitivity.
In 2002, Glamazon was a one-man show, with owner and color-specialist Jere styling all clients, all the time. Though today Jere’s staff has grown to include four more talented designers, nail technicians, and massage therapists, he’s kept his basic concept intact: an urban salon geared not just toward offering chic hairstyles for all, but also helping the community. Throughout haircut and color services, Jere and his crew draw from a shelf full of environmentally friendly products by brands such as Neuma, Kemon, and Pureology—all of which forgo harsh chemicals and playground name calling. Outside of the salon, the team hosts various community fundraisers in support of organizations such as the Child Abuse Council and Every Woman’s Place.
