All of the independent contractors at Feisty Studios Salon & Spa arm themselves with Schwarzkopf, ISO, and Affinage products when creating new hairstyles. They cut the locks of men, women, and children, and twist strands into updos for special events and weddings. They also hydrate hair to withstand the local climate and imbue locks with new hues via solid base colors or highlights.
Planet Beach treats its clientele the right blend of beauty and relaxation. Visitors might relax atop a hydro-massage table, which uses heated water jets to soothe tense muscles. They can then get sun-kissed skin inside sunless tanning booths or opt for a luminous facial, which uses a bar of light to tighten and firm skin. Planet Beach also hosts Facial Fridays. During this weekly event, certified consultants design skincare regimens catered to each client's skin type.
Skin Care By Design's microdermabrasion treatment uses the power of the Vibraderm's vibrating, abrasive, stainless-steel paddle to polish away the face’s dead skin cells, tiny blemishes, and dents caused by hastily opened car doors. The 30-minute process improves skin texture and tone—stimulating new collagen, firming the skin, and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. There is no downtime after getting a microdermabrasion treatment or consuming a giant, sloppy sandwich, but you might appear flushed for 15–30 minutes.

As they cut and color new styles, they strive to match each patron's desired aesthetic, relying on products from Pureology and Redken to complement their manual finesse.

Advanced DermaCare Inc's founder, Diane D. Lowery, earned a CIDESCO certification in aesthetics while studying at the venerable Clinique La Prairie wellness retreat in Montreux, Switzerland. Although her European education evokes a low-tech, layered approach to facials, Lowery—approaching 30 years as a skin therapist—specializes in the opposite. Her gentle facials promote firm, even tone with pulses of LED light and electro-microcurrents, and exfoliate rough areas with tiny diamond chips or water jets enriched with antioxidants. She attended courses in naturopathic medicine at Bastyr University to develop a holistic view of skin health, and studied ways to turn back the body's clock without triggering early daylight-saving time at the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.
