Helmed by a mother-daughter duo, B'yond Natural Beauty specializes in styling, caring for, and cultivating locs, whether worn loose and free or twisted into elegant updos. They also provide a host of coloring services such as single- and double-process color, balayage, and even full- and multicoloring treatments for locs as well. B'yond Natural rounds out its services with custom spray tanning and eyelash extensions.
When Viva Vitamins’ cofounders decided to join forces in 1996, it was a symbiotic partnership. One brought his experience as a wellness counselor, and the other brought hers as a fitness and nutrition guru. The two backgrounds formed a well-rounded foundation for their next venture—a line of alternative health products. Today, their extensive selection of athletic supplements, minerals, herbs, and multivitamins is endorsed by a team of doctors and available at stores in 19 states. A staff of certified dietary supplement specialists advises customers on what may be needed now and in the future to ensure your bodies continued well-being, including many products featured on Dr. Oz.
