Details Day Spa doesn't just prettify faces; it also fosters community. The spa regularly holds 30-minute public forums during which local medical and dental professionals give brief lectures about a relevant topic in their fields and then answer questions from attendees.
Of course, the forums aren't the only events that Details' staff hosts. At Girls' Nights In, women bring in their makeup and a licensed makeup artist assesses whether the hues work for their skin tone. Then, the makeup whiz teaches them how to apply it and when to chuck it. Outside of special events, everyday à la carte services include facials, body contouring and massage, faux- or real-mink eyelash extensions, and spray tanning.
Staffed by a team of practiced pooch paladins and offering an array of durable pet products, Wipe Your Paws Inc. bathes, briefs, and bedecks canines in an immaculate, friendly atmosphere. The grooming salon's coat-coddling services range from a simple sudsing to a comprehensive glamorizing session, leaving pups with glossy coats and pristine paws. Wipe Your Paws’ affable staff will keep pets satisfied and patient as they clip nails, clean ears, condition fur, and finish with a beautifying blow dry. An array of specialty treatments is available, including nail-polish application, blueberry facials, teeth brushing, and custom shampoo choices.

Nestled among 151 private acres, Larkspur Farm’s 36-horse facility sets the spacious stage for education in the equine pursuits of hunting, jumping, and dressage under the tutelage of specialized trainers. All lessons take place year-round on the farm’s all-weather outdoor lesson ring or inside the 80’x120’ arena. Beginners establish riding skills by starting with one-on-one lessons that instill such fundamentals as mounting the horse, trotting, and applying enough gel to give your steed a mane mohawk. As riders advance, they matriculate to small group lessons of up to four riders that last one hour and cover more advanced techniques.
Larkspur Farm offers boarding facilities for privately owned horses, summer camp for boys and girls aged 7–14, and a sales and leasing program for horses and ponies.
