Licensed massage therapist Trisha Clark opened Life Happenings Massage Therapy because she was unsatisfied with the revolving door feeling of larger massage practices. Her nearly two decades of experience has taught her that massages should be one-on-one, with the therapist devoting his or her full attention to each client and taking time to customize Swedish, deep tissue, and other modalities to suit their unique needs. Her one-room studio exemplifies this philosophy with a single massage table and a streamlined set-up designed expressly to focus on a single client. As a result, Trisha never gets distracted by long lines of clients or stressed dads who need help unknotting holiday lights.
Jamie works out of her individual salon studio shaping the hair of men, women, and children. Women's cut-and-colorings start at $70, with $10 for each additional color added to the mix. Head-turning haircuts and styles are $30, and a shampoo and styling of perfectly chopped coifs runs at $20. Jamie also offers wedding or prom updos ($40), or a special 'do for proms that turn into weddings. With her extensive experience coaxing color into dull strands and style from frayed ends, luscious locks will be forthcoming from all manner of scalps. Makeup applications ($20) and faux lashes ($5) erase boring facial facades, and mini facials ($15) and mini manicures ($20) leave no excuses for unmoistened skin or unpolished nails. Jamie also offers perms (starting at $60) and ear piercings for unbearably hole-free ears ($20).
Working out of Bella Rouge salon, licensed nail technician Jackie Nording renovates nails with lustrous polishes and soothing manicures and pedicures. Shellac nail polish enlivens fingertips with a durable, glossy sheen that lasts up to 14 days. Artificial gel nails glimmer with white or glittery tips that appear more natural than acrylic nails and feel lighter than cast-iron nails. During mani-pedis, Jackie massages hands and feet, treating toes to a relaxing soak before glitzing up nails. She can also add eye-catching nail art to polished fingers and toes, adorning already glam surfaces with ornate designs.
Founded in 2008 by two board-certified physicians, the team of medical professionals at Milan Laser Aesthetics beautifies bodies with the help of the same advanced cosmetic laser technology featured on The Doctors, Dr. Oz, Dr. Phil, and Nightline. In addition to hair-removal services powered by Candela lasers, the team also tackles other beautification projects. Their ReFirme laser skin tightening is a non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment using elos technology to erase signs of aging, such as crows’ feet, under eye sagging, and smile lines. They also contour curves with the help of their Zerona device's cold laser system, which releases fat from fat cells without injuring surrounding tissue. The spa also offers Botox, Juvederm, and laser vein removal treatments.
The trained staff at Ashley Lynn's Tanning welcomes first-time and returning clients to quality bronzing beds and UV-free VersaSpa tanning booths. The full-body and facial bulbs in tanning beds of various levels speed skin to all-over darkened shades in minutes without the hassle of canning sunbeams for the winter. Staff members swap out each lamp halfway through its lifetime, ensuring tanners won’t endure weakened wattage during their session. Alternatively, the studio's VersaSpa spray-tan booth comforts tanners with an open design and an air-filtration system as they customize their 10-minute sessions by selecting either clear spray-tanning or bronzer-tanning treatment. Each treatment achieves maximum color after 8 hours, and the booth also helps to moisturize skin.
