To Constantina Hahn, hospitality is as important as the luxurious treatments and pristine facilities that won her studio a day spa Gold award from the Beaver County Times. Inside the homey spa, clients are greeted with complimentary coffee or tea and then led past rows of antique framed mirrors that reflect hairstylists and customers chatting like old friends. To make heads feel well-cared for, organic hair-coloring products––certified cruelty-free and vegan by PETA-customize hues, and Brazilian blowouts form a smoothing sheath around strands fried by chemical treatments or jealous short order cooks. Dermalogica skincare products also cater to individual needs and concerns as they are blended into tailored, age-defying treatments, and nail, waxing, massage, and tanning services ensure no limb, hair, tendon, or talon is left untended.
Advanced Skin Care Solutions' medical director, Dr. Chris Cobb, draws from board certification and a membership in the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery to help patients touch-up their appearances during nonsurgical procedures. Dr. Cobb stays on-hand for all appointments to assist his certified medical team as they administer cosmetic injectables and wield lasers that can smooth surfaces and read any binary-code tattoos. In addition to their in-house procedures—which also include chemicals peels—the skincare professionals can recommend take-home products from brands such as Skin Medica.

Kayleigh Bynum always starts her appointments with a conversation. She gets to know her guests before she puts scissors to hair in order to get a better feel for each person's personality and lifestyle. With that information, along with their style wishes and face structure, Kayleigh is better able to customize haircuts that accentuate her guests' best physical features and personalities. To create finished looks, she uses Pravana color products, and Coppola Keratin Complex to create smooth, silky waves of hair.
Dermal fillers such as Botox and Juvéderm require injection by a steady, confident hand. Not only has Beautiful U Aesthetics’ nurse, Anne Hubbard, mastered the ministration of these cosmetic boosters, she's demonstrated the procedure on a live KARK 4 segment to illustrate the simplicity of the process and prove that she could do it while riding a unicycle and reciting the Cyrillic alphabet. Anne’s specialties range from skin-smoothing injectables to facial services such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels. She can also apply permanent eyeliner above and below the peepers, enhancing clients’ natural features without the wastefulness of applying makeup every morning or using up a birthday wish on something besides preventing asteroid strikes.
