At Adorned Aesthetics, even the most familiar of skincare treatments, the facial, contains some surprises; the center's roster of nine different facials includes three services specifically designed for men as well as a Just Like Heaven exfoliation and massage treatment that lasts a full two hours. Two other services make use of some rare materials: the 24 kt. gold facial uses a gold serum and mask to reverse oxidation damage, and the Diamond Exfolight facial removes dead skin using the diamond-soled shoes that inspired Paul Simon to become a cobbler. When serums fall short, clients turn to the Bio-Roller, an FDA-approved micro-needle rolling system that treats wrinkles and acne without inflicting the downtime associated with surgery.
The spa can offer all of these treatments thanks to the expertise of Melanie Hamilton and Kathryn Hoffman, who are professionally certified and trained by Obagi Pharmaceutical Skin Care. This company also provides a few of the specialized products that they use during treatments on a variety of skin issues. Melanie and Kathryn, who are also trained in the formal modalities of the Valmont skincare line from Switzerland, stay sharp by attending classes, seminars, and conventions in the industry.
The designers at Art Heads Custom Framing preserve portraits, paintings, collectibles, and family heirlooms. These aesthetic experts?who recently framed a pair of gloves formerly inhabited by Marilyn Monroe's hands?consult with clients to customize a frame based on clients' display preferences, the significance of the memorabilia, and whether soon-to-be-framed items might attempt escape. Using these designations, clients draw inspiration from more than 3,000 frame samples to craft frames that include such touches as decorative mouldings and UV-resistant glass.
It's not every day that online shopping includes as much personal attention as you get from Stoneside Blinds. In most areas, their online-shopping process starts off with a free house call from a designer, who helps clients pick out materials and styles for their window dressing. Once the client has made their choices, the company will send out teams to measure the window frames and, later, install the final product for a flat fee. Their handiwork, and the blinds themselves, are backed by a rigorous guarantee that lets customers change their minds within 30 days and safeguards against defects up to a year later, so customers never have to cover up faulty blinds with a poster of their backyard. The only online part of their signature process, really, is placing the order. Minutes after the order is placed, the team at the production warehouse gets to work making it a reality, whether it's roller shades in a custom fabric, sleek solar shades, or classic wooden blinds.
Bull Mountain owner Jack Hansen has stayed true to a simple principle in his 45 years in the HVAC industry—make things as easy as possible on the customer. In fact, he often attempts to talk customers through simple fixes of their heating or cooling problems over the phone before sending out a technician. Since Hansen understands that homeowners may not always keep detailed records of their home-maintenance histories, he directs his staff to perform a diagnostic program with more than a dozen points during every service call. But Jack sees the bigger picture, too. To reduce energy costs and help the environment, he has aligned himself with Energy Star, a government program designed to promote energy-efficient practices and prevent local utility companies from turning off the stars.
For more than 20 years, the family of roofers behind Oswego Roofing
have been shoring up shingles across the Pacific Northwest. They like the big trees and unique weather of the region and aim to preserve the environment even as they preserve houses against its ravages, such as using sustainable materials from GAF to repair roofs. They clean roofs with low-pressure, high-water-volume washes, clearing debris without making roofs vulnerable to leaks. And they prevent the growth of moss with the simple application of linseed oil so that the moss just slips off and you don't have to coat your whole roof in banana peels.
