Aesthetician, massage therapist, nail technician, and yoga teacher are just a few of Tara Swagger's titles. To save time and space, Tara created her own spa with a much shorter name: Taraesthetics. Here, she administers spa services that cater to the body and spirit. Among them are earth-friendly, vegan, and chemical- and paraben-free treatments, such as the custom From the Farm facial, which includes deep herbal cleansing, exfoliation, warm towels, face mask, and a massage. She also offers men's treatments and services that employ seasonal ingredients, such as milk, honey, and holiday-fruitcake extracts.
The mother-daughter team of Alison and Kristen Pope boasts more than 30 years of combined experience in the professional pampering industry and run a. Salon Galleria & Spa with a soft, well-moisturized fist. Though Kristen originally followed in her mother?s footsteps to become a nail technician, she later added licensed cosmetologist, certified massage therapist, and hairstylist to her resume, which explains the lengthy roster of services that the salon boasts. Alison, Kristen, and their staff also host parties for children and adults, sometimes arming older customers with champagne flutes. Visitors can receive hairstyling or makeovers or dip toes into a heated whirlpool tub before each digit submits to buffing, shaping, polishing, and a rigorous cleaning behind their ears.
Sometimes kids don't like getting haircuts, and that's where Nate the Great's Kidz Kutz comes in. After every appointment, a child gets a lollipop and a toy from the toy bin.

Along with services such as colored hair extensions, french braids, and highlights, a licensed stylist creates fashion-forward cuts for boys and girls.

At La Casa Spa, the signature facial consists of multiple parts?cleansing exfoliation, extractions as needed, and a face and neck massage.
