Light flickers against a clear gemstone chandelier in the contemporary front lounge of Hello Beautiful!, where staffers with more than 50 years of collective experience greet guests with friendly smiles and kind salutations. As music swirls around the eclectic pampering haven, clients follow the hardwood floors into a violet-hued salon filled with stylists sprucing up ‘dos with master haircuts and vibrant colorings. Among delicate drapes and leather treatment chairs, attentive aestheticians keep visages beaming brightly with tailored facials or permanent cosmetics, which help ensure makeup won't run while swimming, showering, or going over Niagara Falls in a barrel. Staffers further indulge guests with complimentary beverages and light snacks.

Ginger Martin joins a team of experienced Aveda and Paul Mitchell stylists at Little Flower Day Spa, a full-service hair salon and a rejuvenation and relaxation haven. The team pampers guests with skincare and bodycare in five different treatment rooms. Its services range from microdermabrasion treatments and enzyme peels to intense pulsed-light skin-rejuvenation treatments and shellac manicures.

Though she works out of the delicately named Little Flower Day Spa & Aesthetic Specialties, master barber Tina Olive knows how to handle the rougher edges of men’s beards and sideburns. There are no unnecessary frills to her classic haircuts—just the snips and clips it takes to craft sharp, contemporary looks. She does, however, offer a VIP haircut that includes a straight-razor shave. To prep whiskers for this traditional treatment, Tina first applies a hot towel and then vigorously rubs whiskers with a balloon to make sure they stand up straight.

Additionally, Patterson offers skincare and makeup-application lessons, using products from BeautiControl.
