The licensed follicle whisperers at It's All About Me raise drooping spirits with a head-turning mane makeover. The human fleece revision begins with a color infusing lowlight or highlight service, adding depth to hair and playing favorites with sibling strands. Tresses also receive a proper trimming and style from the steady hands of the stylist, ramping the chic factor to new heights. A deep-conditioning treatment bolsters limp locks, giving hair a strong body and enough courage to finally tell their smothering hairbands to hit the bricks.
Licensed massage therapist James Hudson believes that massage is both a healing art and a science. Approaching his profession in the same way he lives his life—by treating everyone with dignity and respect—James helps clients relax while also ensuring they obtain maximum benefits. Ultimately, his massages are designed to alleviate pain, fatigue, and muscle or joint stiffness stemming from spending several days in a runaway hot-air balloon. Depending on each client’s needs, this could mean offering a Swedish, hot-stone, deep-tissue, or prenatal massage.
Art of Beauty Med Spa owner Casey Solakian is a licensed aesthetician and makeup artist, and as such, she performs both makeup applications and skincare treatments at her spa. Her facial services range from topical care, such as cucumber facials and microdermabrasion, to more intensive treatments such as chemical peels and Dysport injections. Her makeup applications can be commissioned for a variety of occasions, including proms, weddings, television appearances, or that portrait you're getting taken so your dog remembers what you look like while you're at work.
Before she started kneading backs, Melinda J. Herring studied the body's architecture as a sculptor. That artistic training gave the Washington University grad her built-in attentiveness to the interconnectivity of musculature—integral to her current gig as a licensed massage therapist and her brief stint as the Lincoln Memorial’s official chiropractor. Today, her living, breathing clients choose from a broad menu of massage styles that range from deep tissue to tension-targeting hot stone. In addition to the standard modalities, Melinda's specialization lies in orthopedic and oncology massage, and she also spends time as a North Little Rock massage practitioner for CARTI, where she brings relief to patients undergoing radiation therapy.
