Ginger Martin joins a team of experienced Aveda and Paul Mitchell stylists at Little Flower Day Spa, a full-service hair salon and a rejuvenation and relaxation haven. The team pampers guests with skincare and bodycare in five different treatment rooms. Its services range from microdermabrasion treatments and enzyme peels to intense pulsed-light skin-rejuvenation treatments and shellac manicures. Additionally, medical weight-loss management programs use lipotropic B12 injections to help clients lose weight, boost energy, and use “lipotropic” in a sentence at least once today.
Though she works out of the delicately named Little Flower Day Spa & Aesthetic Specialties, master barber Tina Olive knows how to handle the rougher edges of men’s beards and sideburns. There are no unnecessary frills to her classic haircuts—just the snips and clips it takes to craft sharp, contemporary looks. She does, however, offer a VIP haircut that includes a straight-razor shave. To prep whiskers for this traditional treatment, Tina first applies a hot towel and then vigorously rubs whiskers with a balloon to make sure they stand up straight.
Specializing in all things hair, Mindi Patterson relies on her Aveda Institute training and years of experience when snipping and coloring her clients' locks. At Little Flower Day Spa, Patterson attends to each visitor, beginning with a personal consultation to discuss style, color, and the contents of their fridge. Additionally, Patterson offers skincare and makeup-application lessons, using products from BeautiControl.
At Little Flower Day Spa, licensed stylist and cosmetologist Holly Stovall cuts and conditions hair for men, women, and children. She straightens and smoothes hair with keratin treatments, adds vibrancy with color and highlights, and showcases her cosmetological cunning with makeup applications and prom and wedding updos.
Though she had never experienced a massage of her own, Janice Amyson knew that she had found her calling as soon as she entered massage school. She carried this initial passion through her courses and into her career at The Amazing Hands Therapeutic Massage, where today she strives to empathize with her aching clients. To make sure that she understands and addresses their individual aches, Amyson never begins treatment without a brief consultation. This all-important sit-down, during which she inquires about areas of particular soreness, allows her to customize sessions that may incorporate modalities such as deep-tissue massage, TMJ treatment, repetitive-use therapy, and medical massage.
The treatment room’s low lighting, aromatherapy candles, and lush green plants join together to soothe frazzled nerves. Arbonne lotions and a heated table aid Amyson’s nimble fingers as she unkinks knotted musculature and rewires cybernetic limbs. Other therapeutic elements include Mentholatum, which opens sinuses to allow for easier breathing, and foot warmers to comfort cold toes. In this same room, Amyson also treats bodies with soothing spa treatments such as mud-mask facials and paraffin dips.
More than 15,000 patients have passed through Parish Cosmetic Vein and Laser Center’s doors since it opened in 1995. Dr. Timothy Parish has been at the helm the entire time and, although he’s added several skills to his resumé since, he still takes the time to personally outline a treatment plan and perform ultrasounds for each patient with varicose veins. A registered vascular technician and registered physician in vascular interpretation, Dr. Parish eschews painful vein-stripping procedures for innovative methods including endovenous laser treatment, which uses laser fibers to damage the vein walls, eventually causing them to break down, pack up their belongings, and disappear. Beyond vanquishing problem veins, Dr. Parish and his team have also mastered several cosmetic procedures, including laser hair removal, chemical peels, and dermal fillers such as Botox and Juvéderm.
