The staff at The Reflections Salon & More tend to clients with services slated to enhance exteriors from fingertips to tresses. From simple trims to advanced, artful styling sessions, the shears-wielding professionals exercise diligence and tailor each snip to suit the client’s personality. The resident licensed waxing technician also assists clients by smoothing out bikini areas in preparation for wintertime trips to indoor water parks.
Stacey, the proprietor of Stacey's Permanent Solutions, first opened the doors to her own salon 25 years ago. From humble beginnings, the business has expanded to a 1,000-square-foot salon with four additional stylists. Stacey's philosophy of “beauty from the inside out” and her own allergies undergird the salon’s use of natural, organic JKS, Holistix, and Retrohair salon products instead of harsh styling methods employing heavy-duty chemicals or belt sanders.
Stacey believes that her job isn't just about cutting, coloring, and conditioning hair. “It’s psychology, too,” she says, describing her way of setting clients at ease with conversation and soothing essential oils as she transforms their appearance. Her conviction that everyone should have the chance to both look and feel good has even inspired Stacey to offer at-home services for clients with special needs.

That's why they wage war against dust and filth without requiring customers to sign a service contract, opting instead to sweep through on a one-time basis or as often as the customer likes. Basic or deep-down cleanings reclaim kitchens, bathrooms, common areas, and walkways, whittling down customer to-do lists and according them more free time to mess up the homes of their friends and neighbors.
Superior Carpet Cleaning doesn’t just eradicate dirt; it also eliminates the impersonal nature and harsh cleaning practices of bigger carpet-cleaning businesses. Because the company is small, the owner is able to oversee most of the jobs the technicians perform, ensuring each carpet, furniture, and rug fiber they work on is left spotless. And the formulas and equipment they bring along are all environmentally friendly, so newly cleansed floors are left safe for kids, pets, and impromptu handstands to impress the neighbors.
When Bill La Fleur decided it was time to open up a second restaurant, he enlisted the aid of his favorite chef in the world—his wife, Karen. Karen donned the chef’s hat and took charge of the restaurant’s kitchen, designing a menu of Italian and American dishes that have since been lauded by reporters from the Post-Standard. The skilled chef showers pasta in housemade sauces and hand rubs premium steaks in piquant, robust seasonings. To craft her old-fashioned fish-fry special, Karen breads fresh haddock before plating the crispy fillets alongside nests of fries and coleslaw.
Customers await meals out in the lively dining room, sipping glasses of fine wine and nibbling on freshly baked italian bread. Soft hanging lamps and the glow of televisions bathe the room in warmth. Throughout the month, the restaurant plays host to live-music performances and energetic parties celebrating everything from Christmas to moon landings.
