Owner Marcy Lanier and her crew of stylists take pride in creating the right cut and color for each of their clients at Willows Dream. During appointments, they apply their collective creative energy to help each person look and feel their best with a hairdo that flatters both their face shape and personality. Meanwhile, the team's aesthetician, Ginger, tends to the rest of the body's beauty needs, performing quick waxing treatments, vegan mani-pedis, and Xtreme Lashes eyelash applications. Her caring, professional touch has resulted in regular clients, and even earned her a spot on Mountain Xpress' Best of WNC 2012 list.
After treatments, guests can peruse the inviting gift boutique, a destination in itself, which is stocked with whimsical accessories, jewelry, local art, and high-quality hair products.
Auto Massage manicures trucks, cars, and corporate fleets with an exhaustive menu of aesthetic services. In addition to traditional wash and wax services, technicians combat the effects of nature with bug and tar removal, and sanitize cruddy engines with a degreasing treatment. To expedite its offerings, Auto Massage can pick up and deliver vehicles, and the company’s mobile detailing unit can set to work on cars while they’re parked at home, the office, or a red light.
The staff of As Clean As It Gets Auto Detail leaves cars sparkling with meticulous hand washes, interior cleanings, and coats of carnauba wax. An exterior scrub mops buggies with pH-balanced shampoo to purge their shells of bugs, road tar, and infatuated, clinging rickshaws. Technicians dress tires, wheel wells, and exterior trims before swabbing both sides of glass panes. Vacuums then uproot grime from floors and upholstery while an interior wipe down shines plastics and leather or vinyl casings. After a doorjamb de-gunking ceases haunted-carriage creaks, a hand application and removal of carnauba wax gives paint a glossy finish. The entire purification process takes three to five hours, allowing patrons to watch a few explosive action films without covering their automobile's eyes.
The staff members of Southern Detail Worxs apply paint jobs, hand washes, carnauba wax, and wet sanders during a tier of detailing sessions. To augment these details, they dish out a la carte services, including odor-elimination treatments and shampoo treatments for floor mats, whose hair growth can get rather unwieldy. The team also boasts experienced window-tinting installers, who accent glass surfaces with Solar Gard films that can help windows to deflect up to 99% of UV rays and up to 66% of solar heat.
Husband-and-wife team Marcus and Tonya run Karworkz the old fashioned way: with hard work all done by hand. During services such as basic washes their team whips out the soft cloth and safely buffs cars clean, while complete detailing dolls up autos inside and out, shining everything from tires to ash trays. A multi-talented squad, they can also accomplish headlight restorations that clear away oxidation for brighter illumination, as well as upholstery repairs.
Simoniz's The Best exterior service pampers transporters with a shine-restoring exterior wash. Car caretakers ensure that carriages are completely cleaned, from their hard exoskeletons to soft underbellies to mate-attracting rims. Rid windshields of bug-and-dirt debris before applying a visibility-boosting treatment. After a tire shine matches trundling rubber to trendy patent-leather streets, a team of wash techs gives autos a final Double Bond protectant and autos go through a machine drying process, assuring all the essential oils get absorbed into their thick skins. As part of this deal, Groupon customers also receive $10 off an express detailing service ($44.99) during a future visit.
