"I want to make this world beautiful, inside and out," says Courtney Hurley, owner of Ravished Beauties. She strives toward this goal armed with lipsticks, blushes, and eyelash extensions, primping brides-to-be, models, and the doppelgangers that live inside mirrors. At Ravished Beauties, she teaches aspiring makeup artists the tricks of the trade and oversees a team of stylists and aestheticians who prettify clients hair and nails in addition to their skin, grooming guests with individual salon services as well as pampering packages.
Within walking distance of the shops and restaurants in downtown Auburn, Ti Amo Spa is a wellness and beauty center devoted to helping clients relax and look and feel beautiful. Here, staffers administer facials, waxing, body scrubs, and makeup applications amid a quiet and luxurious ambiance. Come in for a microdermabrasion treatment or have a detoxifying body wrap to escape the stresses of everyday life.
On the back deck of The Vineyard Salon, a set of french doors invites guests meander in and out while their color treatments process. It's here where clients can unwind while admiring tangles of foliage in the adjacent vineyard or while listening to the soft gurgle of nearby creek. Beyond the entry of this peaceful haven, The Vineyard Salon's team of certified cosmetologists, aestheticians, and manicurists pamper clients with an indulgent barrage of beauty treatments. There's even an essential oils specialist on staff who, using only organic products, employs the soothing oils during scalp massages that are at once uplifting and relaxing. That emphasis on comfort is the theme at this full-service salon and spa, whether clients stop by for haircuts and color treatments, facials, or Swedish massages. The services here go beyond the standard, too—the beauty experts also offer permanent makeup applications and teeth whitening to clean up traces left from coffee, wine, and chewing nervously on paintballs.
