Susan Ferri has picked up many styling skills over the course of her 15-year career. She’s adept at applying color and highlights, texturizing hair, and cutting mops into fashionable dos that complement both face shape and skin tone. Certified in the Marcia Teixeira Brazilian Keratin Treatment, Susan also diminishes frizz with a long-lasting smoothing treatment that leaves strands as soft as a gosling after it’s been fluffed in the dryer. Susan works inside Hair-N-Now alongside a team of talented hair stylists, nail technicians, and aestheticians.
Wilnelia Viera’s Swedish and deep-tissue massages are enhanced with a handful of add-ons, including paraffin dips, aromatherapy, and heated stones. The licensed massage therapist and owner of Lia's Luxuries travels with another therapist or robot to clients’ homes for couples massages done side-by-side on treatment tables.
The salon and day spa at Moderne may not be far apart physically, but each one feels like a completely different place. The bustling salon is home to a trio of stylists who boast specialties in hair design, extensions, dimensional and corrective color, and Brazilian blowouts, which leave hair straighter, sleeker, and perfect for princes’ climbing attempts. This bustling salon floor slips away as guests enter the doors to the day spa, where they’re greeted by relaxing music. There, massage therapists perform deep-tissue and hot-stone massages, and a nail technician paints fingernails and toenails. The aestheticians can also custom-blend facials, peels, and back facials for clients.
Though massage therapist Stacy Smith believes deeply in holistic healing methods, hands-on education and training remain paramount to her treatment philosophy. Stacy has trained extensively in massage and the study of human anatomy, and she is nationally certified by the NCBTMB. She bases most treatments at Full Circle Massage around Swedish and deep-tissue techniques, though she also uses hot stones and acupressure to help relieve tense musculature. Traditional spa services such as facials and body waxes augment the lineup of massages, ensuring clients' outer beauty matches the inner zen gardens that sprout during massages. Aesthetician Maria Botero takes a personalized approach to give clients of all skin types facials with the latest technologies and cutting edge products. Her passion for life and the field of beauty help her inspire each of her clients to feel confident and beautiful, inside and out.
