A tiger stares hungrily at a Changing Colors Salon customer. The cat can’t eat them, though—its face resides in the artwork of an airbrush manicure. Since 1988, the nail salon has brightened extremities with handiwork ranging from traditional manicures and pedicures, powered by OPI polish, to funkier looks such as glitter french tips, acrylic nails, and zebra-print designs. Beyond nail art, the salon tends to skin, with waxing, microdermabrasion, and rejuvenating treatments that combat aging more effectively than engineering the salon clocks to run backwards.
Cindy Guirino is a registered and licensed dietitian and a solution-focused weight-management therapist with more than 15 years of experience. After a preliminary evaluation, Guirino will test your metabolism's knowledge of 80s sitcoms and determine your basal metabolic rate (BMR), which is how many calories your body is burning while at rest. Using this information, Cindy can work with you to determine weight-loss goals and a plan of action to overcome the donut lobbyists and other challenges standing in the way of a more healthy life.
In 1939, James Clark bought Belmont Pharmacy, where he had worked as store pharmacist. His son, James Clark Jr., followed him into the business, and eventually the enthusiastic, dedicated family began opening additional branches. Today, a third-generation Clark, Tim, oversees the operation of the eight locations.
Each location mingles old-fashioned corner-store friendliness with modern health-care tools. Medical equipment, such as lift chairs and canes, ease home life, as do prescription medications that can be delivered by a friendly staff member. The Huber Heights location also has a compounding pharmacy, in which highly trained workers customize prescriptions to individual needs, combining multiple medications into a single dosage, adding kid-friendly flavors, or carving each pill into the shape of a white blood cell.
Staffed by certified members of the American Massage Therapy Association and a duo of certified aestheticians, Serenity Therapeutic Massage & Skin Care keeps bodies limber and faces fresh with a suite of rejuvenating services. Tending to physiques with tools such as soothing hot stones and warm bamboo rods, massage therapists loosen kinks and untie bowline back knots. Aestheticians—exclusively wielding botanical Pevonia products—massage and revivify faces with treatments custom-tailored to each client's skin tone, moon sign, and epidermal concern. Alternatively, a variety of spa packages for parties of two to six people combine massages with other pampering services such as facials, body treatments, and sugar scrubs.
Owned by a stylist with more than 20 years of experience under her belt, The Element Total Salon employs a talented crew that draws from products by Aquage, Design Essentials, KeraCare, and AG to perform an array of hair-coloring, weaving, and barbering services. The full-hair coloring, which takes about 2.5 hours, imbues strands with one bold hue or creates a contrast symphony with a duet of shades. Men can ditch unwanted shag with a swift 20-minute cut, and women can invest more time in a weave session; during the 3.5-hour procedure, a skilled strand-sewer will extend ladies' locks with strips of string cheese or a full set of extensions that patrons have brought from home.
Spanning more than 150 locations and six states, L.A. Tan's beautifying services polish pallid epidermises into shining, bronzed statues and brighten smiles with whitening treatments. A Level 1, 2, or 3 booth tan glows warmly with UVB rays, stimulating the body's production of vitamin D and burnishing epidermises to a brilliant sheen. UV-free spray tans, such as Mystic Tan or VersaSpa sessions, quickly glaze outer skin shells into glistening hues without exposing hides to the sun's harmful rays or pitiful knock-knock jokes.
