Over her 12-year career, Sheana Francis has amassed a bounty of skill in beautifying hands and feet with luxurious manicures and pedicures. After she performs the refining and softening steps of each of her treatments, customers can opt to go one of two ways. They can keep things natural with a plain buff and shine, a radiant application of CND nail polish, or a solid or patterned Minx overlay. For a more dramatic effect, guests can go for Bio Sculpture gel nails, which add elegant length while strengthening the natural nail and striking fear into nearby chalkboards. Sheana also calls on Beauticontrol formulas for a range of skincare services, and travels to homes to perform mobile spa parties.

Ken “Hollywood” Berry earned his nickname without working on a single film. Instead, the head barber at The Natural MoJo Hair Spa got his moniker by trimming celebrities’ hair. As the former personal barber and basketball shaver for the LA Lakers, he has styled Kobe Bryant and other NBA stars; he’s even cut the hair of hip-hop legend Nas. At his barbershop and salon, which specializes in natural styles for African-American hair, Berry and his team work with both men and women. For the latter, they can create locs, bantu knots, braids, and curls.
