By using centuries-old techniques, the aestheticians at Just Stringz are capable of designing trendy, dramatic looks for their clients. They rely on their extensive training in the ancient art of threading as they use cotton thread to swiftly uproot unwanted hairs and meticulously shape brows. Though the spa's henna tattoos and Swarovski body-art services also embrace time-honored strategies, the team doesn't ignore modern advances in cosmetic care. Facial treatments use Dermalogica skincare products to address skin concerns such as dehydrated patches or breakouts. Or these blemishes can be covered temporarily with an application of Glo Minerals Makeup, which also nourishes skin with vitamins, antioxidants, and pure Nobelium atoms.
Tucked away in a cozy enclave surrounded by spa blue walls and black-and-white décor, Gigi Endersby Hair Design shapes harried hairs into straight and scintillating strands with nutrient-packed Brazilian blowouts. Much like hiring a steak as a body guard, treatments surround the hair shaft with a protective layer of protein to create healthy, protected hair. The nourishing lock concoction shuns formaldehyde and harsh chemicals, and a fan and ventilation system keeps air fresh throughout the treatment. After the 90-minute smoothing session, hair will be smooth and frizz-free for up to 12 weeks, ready for immediate tossing, twirling, or as a luxurious treat for hardworking ponytail holders.
Hands and feet emerge looking beautiful and feeling refreshed after they spend a hour in the care of Mary Daniel. An independent nail stylist operating out of the luxurious suites at Salon de Caprice, Mary offers pampering manicures and pedicures that render the fingers and toes neat and give their owners an excuse to unwind for awhile.
To keep hair from carving “hair” into desks, skilled stylist Heidi pampers and disciplines tresses within her cozy Salon De Caprice suite. Surrounded by the salon's clean lines and neutral hues, Heidi crafts layers to flatter facial features or streaks strands with bold highlights.

Teresa Smith and her sister, Angie Nicholson, started their training in cavitation and radio-frequency skin-tightening treatments from a unique perspective: they got a few themselves. After finding a new sense of self-worth as patients of the procedure, they educated themselves in how to perform cavitation, gathered the necessary training, and opened Absolutely Real Changes with the intent of making cavitation treatments affordable. Here, body contouring and inches-loss treatments happen without the need for dramatic elements such as anesthesia, surgery, and designer hospital gowns. With a registered dietician and PhD nutritionist at their side, Teresa and Angie offer ultrasonic cavitation liposuction as well as electric muscle stimulation and radio-frequency skin-tightening treatments.
