Much like the moment when Cinderella's fairy godmother gave her a choice of mice, birds, or horseshoe crabs as her professional dressers, the "certified make-up nerds" at Cseraph, Inc. offer multiple options for makeup application. Temptu airbrush makeup creates a picture-perfect complexion for special occasions, and more traditional application styles add a touch of beauty to everyday faces. When they're not busy gussying up features, the makeup experts also restore youthful vigor with fruit-infused facials, and keep clients from looking so-so with straightforward beauty advice.
The year was 1999, and master barber Joe Grondin was nostalgic for a bygone institution. The barbershops of old were more than a place for a man to get his hair cut: they were a place to relax, share a conversation, and sneak a bite of the peppermint-flavored pole out front. But men's grooming establishments seemed to be a thing of the past?until Grondin founded his first Roosters in Lapeer, Michigan. The new-old trend caught on, and today, the throwback barbershops can be found coast-to-coast. Men can stop by for timeless services, from haircuts to full shaves to golf advice.

Mystic Fountain Wellness Center's holistic healers restore bodies with recuperative treatments designed to stimulate natural healing processes, not replace them. These treatments might include the strategic placement of tiny adhesive magnets or the application of soft herb- and aloe-soaked bandages, both of which oust stored stress and toxins. The Himalayan salt room also treats chronic conditions, in particular respiratory issues such as sinus trouble. With its low temperature relative to a typical sauna, the infrared sauna is particularly appealing to clients with a low tolerance for heat or snowmen with an extraordinarily high tolerance for heat.
The licensed massage therapists at A&A Therapeutic Massage Clinic customize their strokes to deliver massages that make a difference.
