Leigh Pomerleau pampers her clients with a variety of customized skincare treatments at Serenity Skin Care. From her signature facial—which uses only small-batch, organic products—to express facials and body scrubs, she refreshes and cleans skin for newly healthy glows. Reflexology treatments help relieve stress while eliminating toxins, and can include hot stones or aromatherapy for additional pampering.
Though Marie started out small at a salon in her hometown of Fayetteville, her knack for snipping locks and business savvy soon drove her to salon proprietorship. More than a quarter century later, Marie still helms her own salon, now in Cary, and her passion for clipping and coloring tresses hasn’t waned. At Style By Marie, she works with the natural tendencies of her client’s hair to design classic, modern, or postmodern ’dos catering to the client’s lifestyle. Whatever the look, she keeps a smile on her face until she’s summoned a smile to her client’s face. In addition to snipping and highlighting locks, Marie waxes brows into elegant arches and liberates upper lips from unwanted facial hair or stuck-on milk mustaches.
The beauty designers at CoArt Hair each focus on different specializations, including perms, eyelash extensions, permanent makeup, straightening treatments, and teeth whitening. They work inside a cheery salon with canary yellow walls and expansive windows.
Salon LeChene's team embraces all aspects of beauty?but mostly, they focus on creating a fresh look that leaves folks walking out looking and feeling terrific. This might be as simple as a haircut or a makeup touch-up. But sometimes it's as in-depth as the three-hour makeover, which includes a custom haircut, styles, color, and design highlights and lowlights. They also tackle beauty needs that fall somewhere in between, such as creating halo highlights, blending greys, or waxing brows. Other services include styling lessons for at-home hair beautification, bridal packages, and individual eyelash applications.
At CoArt Hair Studio, Japanese Magic Straight treatments are among owner and stylist Grace Kim's specialities. Her fortes also include haircuts and coloring. However, regardless of whether Grace is adding permanent waves or face-framing highlights to a client's mane, she always keeps in mind that client's features and lifestyle. For example, those seeking low-maintenance looks often go with the salon's shaggy stroke cut. The natural-looking coif is easy to maintain and doesn't require a complicated regimen involving styling products such as volumizing spray, sculpting gel, and chocolate mousse.
At Blissful Healing, massage therapists alleviate pain and tension through multiple modalities, tailoring sessions to meet the goals of each client. During a given session, the therapist may employ soothing Swedish-massage style strokes, trigger-point therapy, or reflexology to engender a sense of deep relaxation. While the spa relaxes clients with massages, it can also energize them with makeovers. Their stylists can cut and color strands, add extensions, or perform restorative treatments designed to prevent hair breakage or moisturize dry scalps.
