Porsche Bailey-Brown, aesthetician and owner of Esthetics by P. Brown, chooses organic, chemical-free products for all of her skincare treatments. She assembles product suites that match each individual's skin type, reaching for Rhonda Allison cleansers and Adonia Organics creams that sweep away grime and lock in nutrients. "I love seeing my clients glow with the results of a good facial," she said, citing her anti-aging facial as a particularly effective treatment for investing skin with radiance. During this three-step facial, Porsche washes and buffs skin to open pores for an infusion of vitamins, collagen, and Lite-Brite pegs.
At the spa, Porsche works alongside a wellness coach and a homeopathic massage therapist. "All our staff are highly trained in their field," Porsche said, noting that the wellness coach holds a master's degree in psychology and nearly a decade of counseling experience. Together, the professionals cultivate a welcoming environment with soothing music and soft lighting.
Time is short and hairstyles often take a lot of upkeep, but Rootz offers a few simple solutions. All the hair treatments here are quick-fix services, meant for those unkempt stretches between haircut appointments or when you can't get to your regular salon. The helpful treatments include root touchups, gloss treatments, toner, and if you've got time to spare, even balayage highlights. The team serves wine or tea during every service, which makes the experience of getting your brows, lips, or chin threaded more comfortable. The free do-it-yourself blow-dry station is another way services stay speedy, helping anyone quickly style their own hair or feel a rush of hot air just for the heck of it.
