Licensed aesthetician Kerry Kourie of Skinchanted offers a variety of services such as traditional facials, waxing services, and body treatments, all of which take place within a homey studio. When waxing clients, Kerry, uses an antibacterial and soybean-based formula wax to gently uproot unwanted hair to reduce any discomfort during waxing. Along with waxing services, she specializes in oncology aesthetics, a branch of the aesthetics field that focuses on skincare services specially designed for those undergoing treatment for cancer. Because chemotherapy, radiation, and strong medications often result in dramatic changes to the skin, it is Kerry’s mission to treat oncology clients according to their new skincare needs. She uses all-natural, organic Hylunia products to nourish the skin while minimizing irritation, inflammation, and free-radical damage.
Licensed massage therapist and skincare expert Irina Ionina had always dreamed of running her own spa where she can heal others while fostering relaxation and well-being. Having opened Ganesha Spa, she’s achieved that goal, and now spends her days practicing eight modalities of massage, such as shiatsu and hot stone, to relieve muscle tension and alleviate stress. She also rejuvenates skin with anti-aging treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, micro-needling, and nonsurgical face-lifts, and hosts kundalini mediation classes each Monday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
At stylist Michele Lisa’s eponymous salon, she and her team of five stylists don’t dye hair. Instead, they color locks with hand-painted balayage highlights, multitonal color, and shine-infused color glazes. Their suite of Redken products just as effectively fuels custom blowouts, which they finish with a skilled flatironing or curling. For looks more luxurious than a face-flattering cut, the team can also augment locks with feather extensions or craft intricate updos for brides, bridal parties, and small-claims-court defendants.
Seated in a comfy chair before an ornate full-length mirror, guests to Hair Inspiration can relax as their coifs are transformed by an expert stylist. The friendly styling team offers smoothing treatments, color, highlights, up-dos and perms, in addition to standard cuts and styles.
At Shear Designs our clients' needs are listened to and together, our stylists and clients create a style and color that feels authentic and also reveals a side of them that they have never seen. For the first time in many of their lives, clients love their hair.
At Michael Robert Salon & Spa, a team of 10 continually educated stylists and aestheticians boosts beauty with modern hairdos, gentle waxing, rejuvenating facials, and ear piercing. Guests plunk down in cushy chairs for deep-conditioning treatments and hair-coloring services by Redken, Wella, and Clairol, while facials turn to Principessa salves to treat skin woes such as blemishes, fine lines, and acne. Heated blankets and essential oils cosset weary bodies during cellulite wraps that help smooth skin dimples and melt away inches faster than lighting a ruler on fire.
