Spa Bellezza has its share of inventive beauty treatments, sure. But it's something called whine therapy that stands out—clients bring a friend, munch on finger foods, sip a glass of wine, and engage in "some soul-felt girl talk." With her masters degrees in psychology and certification as a senior cosmetologist, spa owner Carla knows what she's doing when she organizes events such as these. The community-conscious grandmother earned a degree as a registered nurse and as a licensed cosmetologist as well, backgrounds she distills into organizing two-hour spa parties for girls.
Carla and her staff also focus on individual services. Vanilla, avocado, sugar, and an array of aromatherapy oils comprise the recipes for Spa Bellezza's body treatments. And, a selection of products by Essie, OPI, L.A. Colors, and more attests to the staff's discerning tastes. Facials, mani-pedis, and massages all attract clients to the spa like moths to a hot rod's flames.
A winery and vineyard nestled at the head of Chesapeake Bay, Dove Valley Wine cultivates grapes with the aid of the region's rich soil and plentiful sun. The staff harvests the juicy grapes and mashes them by hand, prepping them to be aged in oak casks. The resulting wines range from dry, dusky reds to crisp, fruity whites—and many have brought home awards from wine competitions in Maryland and New York's Finger Lakes region. Meanwhile, on-site events such as tastings, summer concert series, and special dinners help create a lively backdrop to showcase the wines.
The hair expert behind Braided Barbie has been braiding strands since she was 9 years old. She practiced on family members before moving on to her own tresses—where she felt free to experiment with the latest trends. Today, she and her staff twist hair into exquisite styles and help smooth out cellulite with botanical-based body wraps.
