At Paige Elizabeth Salon & Spa, salon professionals work independently, offering unique services to their customers and operating on their own schedules. Tessa is one to go to for soothing, customized skincare. Her deluxe facial includes warm towels and massages in addition to a deep cleanse, exfoliation with steam, and a treatments mask—all while clients are cozied up in a heated bed. Other treatments include anti-aging or skin-brightening facials, plus advanced skincare, such as glycolic chemical exfoliation and microdermabrasion.
Christina Freeman and her resident aesthetician have more than 30 years of collective experience in the art of making skin glow. In their pursuit of youthful radiance, the skin specialists tailor spa treatments to each client’s skin type. The organic passionfruit peel offers a lighter rejuvenation, and chemical peels and Dermaglow microdermabrasion treatments delve deeper to combat blemishes and signs of aging such as wrinkles or comb-over noses.
Spa-goers can relax during full-body massages and enjoy the aromatherapy of nine essential oils during raindrop-therapy sessions designed to boost immune systems and soothe stress. Rounding out their services, Christina and her team can enhance features with Jane Iredale mineral makeup and wax away mustaches or eyebrows that need braiding each morning.
A pebbled driveway cuts through vast greenery leading up to a historical church, which was originally built in 1890 and currently sits nestled in the shade of neighboring trees. Inside the quiet, secluded house is Canterbury Spa, where owner and licensed aesthetician Laura Lewis curates a suite of beauty-boosting services that span from waxing and facials to massage. Canterbury’s lineup of massages lifts tension from hardworking backs and shoulders, and its manual tans allow beneficiaries to convince coworkers of a recent vacation without wearing a coconut bra around the office.
The aesthetician at Bright Organic Spa rejuvenates visages and physiques with myriad beautifying services that employ the restorative powers of organic ingredients, some sourced from some of the world's most exotic destinations. Polynesian and South Pacific ingredients, such as Tahitian vanilla and coconut milk, immerse the senses in intoxicating aromas during the Polynesian facial, while tropical fruit enzymes and essential oils work to clear and moisturize skin. Body treatments also make use of organic ingredients such as Himalayan salt crystals and propolis, a healing agent made by honeybees.
