At Bikini Body Factory, licensed aestheticians and spa technicians revitalize clients with both technical spa services and holistic skin treatments. They knead backs using Swedish or recovery-specific massages—often enhanced by scented essential oils—and exfoliate skin with sea salts that leave clients smooth enough to gain acceptance from any snobby dolphin pod. Team members also apply wax and cold cucumber packs to oust unwanted bristle from a wide array of treatment areas. And when they're not catering to clients' aesthetic needs, the therapists assist clients in setting realistic goals with ongoing personal fitness training.
If you rifle through The Hair Revue’s Facebook photos, it won’t take very long before you stumble upon a picture of a smiling boy or girl in one of the salon chairs. The staff’s special knack for working with little ones reflect the family-friendly nature of the business, who welcomes everyone from babies to grandmothers.
For grownups, the stylists snip and color hair, as well as create intricate 'dos for special occasions such as weddings. Elsewhere in the salon, aestheticians such as Crystal Seiler trim nails and paint them with standard polish or chip-resistant Shellac.
Celeste Duckworth received her cosmetology license in 1968 and followed that up with 47 years of salon experience, including owning and operating three salons of her own. The culmination of her extensive career blossoms inside Amore Salon and Spa, where she designs and styles hair with an artistic temperament and well-honed technique. Celeste specializes in formal design and has a skilled eye for beautifying bridal parties in preparation for their big day.
Left to its own devices, hair will grow fussy, unmanageable, and inevitably steal your identity. That's why the skilled stylists at Hair Revue keep unwieldy locks under control with their modern cut and color services. Guests can solicit the salon for bold highlights, elegant lash extensions, and restorative mani-pedis with fierce or subtle polish.
Colombia native Patricia Estes demonstrates her artistic talent in each mani-pedi she performs for men, women, and children alike. The longtime painter and licensed nail technician offers a full line of nail services—manicures, pedicures, and acrylic or gel nails—but her specialty is imaginative nail art. She painstakingly enhances fingernails and toenails with vibrant, highly detailed designs or miniature re-creations of Monet's Water Lilies. She works out of the 100-year-old National Avenue Cutting Company building with a group of stylists who also offer haircuts and other salon services.
