At Ormond Salon & Boutique, owner and stylist Debbie Edwards leads her multitalented staff as they create a tranquil environment where visitors can achieve both relaxation and beautification. After verbal consultations that pin down clients’ hairdo aspirations, the salon’s stylists restore luster to coiffures with calculated snips paired with Redken and Matrix products. Aestheticians administer anti-aging facials and safeguard skin with Solise sunscreen that staves off potentially damaging sunrays, while massage therapists go hand-to-hand against bodily aches. Ormond Salon & Boutique’s menu also includes nail services that dignify digits with French polish applied with a baguette.
Having spent more than 25 years in the beauty business, Wild Strandz Hair Salon’s owner, Gregg Davis, puts his experience to use by prettifying clients along with his team of licensed aestheticians and nail technicians. A line of luxury spa chairs sets the scene for manicures and pedicures, during which techs whittle away at calluses and brush on polish to create keratin facsimiles of clients’ favorite Mark Rothko paintings. The spa’s aestheticians and massage therapists evince similarly artistic tendencies, drawing on a wealth of knowledge in their chosen crafts as they unpack pore-clogging bacteria and tendon-tying knots.

An attentive team of stylists and massage therapists indulge clients at Beautiful Hair Color Studio & Spa with shearing-and-sinew-pampering services in a colorful, intimate studio.

Tresses shed unhealthy split ends as the stylist clips and sculpts coiffures into a smart bob, bouncy layers, or monotonous hot-crossed bun. Taut tissues surrender with a Swedish massage as a licensed massage therapist unkinks muscle knots with deep, flowing strokes.
Michelle McCurry knows the power of healthy skin firsthand.

She uses skincare products from Le Mieux—an award-winning brand supported by medical professional and A-list celebrities—during her facials. Le Mieux, notable for its ability to help cells regenerate to create a more youthful appearance at the cellular and hard-to-reach existential levels, helps Michelle treat dry skin, signs of aging, and acne. Her use of Le Mieux illustrates Michelle's overall philosophy of incorporating as many modern, scientifically engineered beauty products as possible—cell biologists, medical doctors, pharmacists, and organic and cosmetic chemists all contribute to the brand's skin elixirs.
Fragrant lavender essential oils are the unifying factor at Amazing You Day Spa, where nail, skin, and body treatments all include a complimentary lavender aromatherapy treatment.

Other services include mani-pedis, waxing, and spa packages that incorporate myriad treatments into an afternoon of pampering and personal attention.
