The licensed therapists and technicians at Creative Strands Hair & Bodyworks excavate stress and instill beauty with a wide spectrum of salon and spa services. During massages, muscle manipulators call upon therapeutic Swedish and deep-tissue techniques to untie knotted muscles in shoulders, backs, and vestigial dorsal fins. Unwanted hairs succumb to swathes of warm wax, and exfoliating microdermabrasion facials leave skin as smooth as Casanova’s answering-machine greeting.
Simply put, the team at Miz’Mo Salon is passionate about what they do. For them, it’s not enough to beautify clients with keratin smoothout treatments, spa pedicures, and eyebrow waxing; they want to educate their clients to learn about them too. Educational night classes impart the basics in hair and makeup, and the team often hosts guest speakers to share their most secret style tips as well as advice on nutrition and healthy lifestyle.
From her station amid the funky chandeliers and flowing curtains of Untamed Salon & Spa, licensed cosmetologist and aesthetician Laurie Vezina calls on more than two decades of experience to refine each face she encounters. She specializes in Xtreme Lashes lash extensions, which can give natural eyelashes length and the type of movement that rivals even the windiest of ceiling fans.
In addition to adding drama to lash lines, Laurie—who is also a skin specialist—teaches clients that a youthful complexion simply requires the right products and meticulous care. After performing an in-depth skin analysis, she buffs away fine lines and clears up blemishes with microdermabrasions, chemical peels, ultrasonic treatments, or one of her eight facial regimens.
Owner and head stylist Michelle Black opened BodyWorks Salon & Spa in order to pamper clients with expert salon services. She and her team of stylists revamp hair with custom cuts and products from Redken and Paul Mitchell Tea Tree, whose citrus and lavender-mint scents nourish scalps and attract local wildlife. With more than 30 years of experience between them, the trained aestheticians perform a multitude of services to keep clients looking good.
Adesso Salon & Day Spa’s facility invokes the comforts of an elegant home. In the waiting room, an iconic Marilyn Monroe print presides over a cozy fireplace. In the hairstyling room, light pours in through sprawling bay windows as the team creates classic or trendy looks under sparkling chandeliers. Staffers pamper clients with facials, manicures, and pedicures. They also banish unwanted hair with waxing, threading, and laser hair-removal services, in which they extract the laser beams pointing out from your scalp—something robots simply call hair.
