Amanda Airo, a massage therapist with nearly a decade of experience, uses her hands to soothe the hands of others—as well as their arms, neck, and scalp—as she treats epidermises. Her skin treatments start with one-on-one consultations so she can analyze the skin before recommending regimens on an individual basis. This process helps her customers maintain radiant, bright faces after facials and peels rendered effective by enzymes and vitamins.
Jody fixes skin problems for the faces that pass through the doors of Salon 506. A microdermabrasion wand or miniature belt sander sloughs off layers of dead skin cells, leaving a healthy glow behind. She also arms herself with a squadron of Aveda products––including the radiance-inducing Perfecting Plant Peel––to uproot blackheads, zap away excess oil, and diminish the appearance of fine lines.
One look at Rituals’ menu of spa services tells clients there’s a nurturing or beautifying treatment for most any body part, covering the likes of hair design, mani-pedis, hair removal, and detoxifying footbaths. Facials—such as the Coconut Bliss facial—moisturize and repair skin, and imbue it with nutrients. Aestheticians also wield cosmetic LED lights that rewind the clock on aging by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and making skin think it now lives in a disco. The staff also includes licensed massage therapists who knead Swedish and deep-tissue massages.
Armed with pharmaceutical-grade products, Creek Stone Med Spa's professionals help clients combat the signs of aging and escape the stresses of everyday life. At the Burlington location physician-assisted specialists administer medical weightloss assistance and back treatments and use potent Botox, Radiesse, Latisse, and Juvéderm injections to diminish the appearance of wrinkles on clients' faces or Richard Nixon Halloween masks. At the Thomasville location, beauty specialists pamper clients literally from head to toe with spa treatments including hair straightening, skincare services with Hungarian ingredients, and pedicures with Éminence Organic scrubs. Physician-assisted weightloss programs and aesthetic medical treatments are also available here.
At Freshe, seasoned stylist Meredith beautifies her clients from top to toes with masterful hairstyling, makeup application, manicures, and pedicures. Meredith infuses silky touchability into strands with Brazilian blowout treatments and deep conditioning, decorates digits with colorful protective nail polish, and prepares guests for formal events and weddings with glamorous updos.
Standing behind her station inside Salon Brio, Marin Owen cuts and styles the hair of her clients while drawing on experience she acquired by specializing in haircuts and spa services for men at The Boardroom Salon for Men. Owen also grooms jaw lines with precise straight-razor shaves and trims and polishes nails with manicures and pedicures. Clients can ask for a subtle no-polish look or long-lasting Shellac polish, which can withstand time in the boxing ring much longer than traditional color.
