As the manager of the salon and spa, Stephanie at De Joy's Day Spa inherited a tradition of beauty care that began in 1955. She still takes joy in the spa's original mission of "making a person look beautiful," she says. To do so, she and her staff cut, highlight, and style their clients' hair into shining, tumbling locks or flattering, close-cropped 'dos. They always customize each look to highlight the client's unique beauty because, as Stephanie says, "[A] person's heart tells you a lot about [them]."

One part salon and spa, one part fitness center, Alaric Health Beauty and Wellness is a one-stop shop aiming to glam up, firm up, and wind down clients' bodies. Hairstylists sweep men?s and women?s manes into trendy styles and nourish scalps with deep conditioner and hydrating scalp treatments. During one-hour Swedish massages, long, flowing strokes untie knotted muscles and help rejuvenate auras cluttered with stress and stale boxes of chi, and basic and deep pore-cleansing facials exfoliate visages to help skin regain a youthful glow. Inside the full-service fitness center, bodies work toward fitness goals among rows of weight and cardio machines, and can attempt to expedite results with help from a personal trainer or prescription weight-loss program.
John Ira, The Corner Salon's master hair stylist and colorist, crafts classic and modern styles with professional hair services in the comforts of a cozy studio. Green and yellow furniture and walls surround clients as they discuss style objectives with Ira during complimentary consultations, drawing on photographs, magazines, or Renaissance sculptures of '80s hair bands. Ira stays up to date on current trends by attending classes, workshops, and trade shows that keep his skills as sharp as his shears.
The stylists at The Corner Salon beautify the entire family with hair- and nailcare services. Along with haircuts, highlights, and coloring, they update hairstyles with sew-in weaves and Keratin smoothing treatments. Acrylic or soak-off nails help make hands look as dazzling as a majestic eagle gliding across the skies with a road flare in its beak, and the staff also offers pedicures that focus on problematic feet and diabetic care.
Even before taking their place on the massage table or in a heated pedicure chair, customers who walk into Elite Salon & Day Spa have a sense of the luxurious relaxation they can expect. They're greeted with complimentary beverages before being ushered into softly lit private rooms where candles flicker, and stress is submerged under a wash of relaxing music. Among other services, aestheticians improve skin with facials that use Rep?chage products, a seaweed-based line manufactured in the United States. For those who need a getaway from family responsibilities or a stressful job turning the sun on and off every day, spa packages sequester guests in serenity for three to seven hours.
Alaric Health Beauty & Wellness helps people look and feel their best with a bounty of amenities, including massage therapy, hair services, skincare, and dietary supplements. An onsite fitness center provides access to cardio and strength-training equipment. Men's and women's haircare and bodycare treatments can strip hair from backs, add permanent waves to hair, or buff rough patches of skin off faces.
