After spending a handful of years crunching numbers for her family's car business, Doran Poma decided to pursue a passion for skincare that she developed as a teenager. Since completing beauty school in 2006 and becoming a licensed aesthetician in 2007, Doran has used her expertise to clear the complexions of numerous clients, including a woman in her 50s who'd been dealing with acne since her teens. This April, Doran began running her skincare operation out of a gut-rehabbed salon, where she uses phytomer and Jan Marini products to pamper clients with specialized facials designed to treat conditions ranging from acne and discoloration to wrinkles in the time-space continuum.

Glow Salon has everything it takes to make a body beach-ready. Staffers perform body-wide waxing services and partner clients up with the tanning equipment that will provide them with the bronzed look they desire. To enhance the effects of a UV- or airbrush-tanning session, they also stock a slew of tanning products.
The stylists at Coiffed Hair Studio can do most anything, from trimming bangs to styling special-occasion updos to helping customers pronounce the salon's name correctly (it's kwäft). In addition to single-process color and face-framing highlights, the team can coat manes with texturizing treatments, smooth curls with Japanese hair-straightening techniques, and add hair extensions to help clients look taller when frightened.
Certified massage practitioner Ian Edwards prefers to use firmer massage techniques, which are better at targeting pain and tension deep within muscles. At his spa, Five Point Palm Massage, he maneuvers between Swedish, deep-tissue, trigger point, and other modalities to customize each massage to the needs of the customer. He can also focus on specific areas of pain such as the back, neck and shoulders, or legs and feet.
