Originally opened in 1987, Shear Power pampers the Ranson community with indulgent spa and salon services that nourish the skin and the hair with botanically-derived Aveda products. The staff includes several stylists, an aesthetician and makeup specialist, a massage therapist, and an independent nail technician who operates out of the salon. These professionals all work together to spruce up clients’ appearances by designing a flattering hairdo, pampering and revitalizing visages, or using gel polishes to perform long-lasting mani-pedis.
Nestled in the historic district of Old Town Winchester, Courthouse Square Barbershop welcomes visitors to relax in cozy leather easy chairs, chat with friends and neighbors, and step out into the street with a brand new haircut. The talented barbers beautify both men and women, though they specialize in men's cuts, from traditional hairstyles to flat-tops, buzz cuts, and fades, as well as old-school hot-towel shaves.
What was once a boarding house for U.S. senators is now a full-service spa, which relies on the same rustic charms those early 1900s politicians enjoyed to keep patrons relaxed. Vast windows offer guests views of the wraparound porch and the well-kept gardens beyond as they relax throughout a wide range of massages and facials.
As a licensed massage therapist, Barbara Trojecki has a simple motto: “We have only one body, so we need to take good care of it.” Barbara is a graduate of the Baltimore School of Massage, and her experience is diverse, ranging from the corporate and health-care sectors to day spas and fitness facilities. Now in the comfort of her private North Shore studio, she customizes flowing medium-pressure strokes, with firmer deep-tissue techniques to target lower-layer aches and relieve tension. Clients seeking to improve athletic performance and recover from nights of rolling down steep hills in oil drums may also request Barbara’s signature sports massage.
