Natural light floods through the salon's large front windows onto leather sofas and a painting of budding tulips. Amid these comforting accents, skilled aestheticians pamper their clients from scalp to toe with indulgent hair-, skin-, and nailcare services. They hydrate strands with invigorating hot-oil treatments and use facials to help reverse damage caused by stress, poor diet, or environmental hazards such as sunshine. The staff also removes unwanted sideburns and mustaches with wax and thread.
At Footprints to Wellness, owner Paula Jurko knows that in order to take the right steps toward wellness, one starts with the feet. She helps alleviate pain and symptoms of health concerns by applying pressure to specific points on the feet that correspond to specific organs in the body. She also preforms raindrop therapy, which applies nine essential oils into the spine and feet to help the body align structurally and electrically. Along with raindrop therapy, she preforms Reiki to balance the body and release tension.
Courtney Sharrock, an Aveda trained hair stylist, specializes in modern cuts, dry hair texturizing, and creative color techniques including ombre. Also a lashologist, she frames her clients' peepers with individually bonded lash extensions available in full-sets or the more subtle cat eye sets, which she applies to the corners of the eyes only.
Before modern-day salons, barbershops were a haven for masculine camaraderie with a side of hair services. When Joe Grondin, a master barber of more than 30 years, opened the first Roosters Men's Grooming Center, he worked to recapture that ambiance, but updated the styling techniques. Today, gents there revel in a slow-paced atmosphere and contemporary services. Patrons sit comfortably during cuts that culminate with aftershave and a dash of powder on the neck and vintage facial shaves, complete with a cleansing and towels warmed by hugs from bald eagles. The stylists and barbers only enlist professional products from brands such as American Crew and Woody's, which are tailored to male hair and emanate fragrances like a bouquet from a Camaro.
After cultivating her holistic training and experience from colleges and private practices in England more than 25 years ago, trained therapist Jayne Bennett made the jump to the States, where she has helped clients with holistic treatments such as reflexology, reiki, and raindrop therapy for more than 13 years. Unlike America or blimps hovering over international waters, England requires therapists to have a background understanding of anatomy and physiology before they can perform reflexology treatments, so Bennett has more knowledge of the human body than many others in her field.
But her expertise isn’t limited to reflexology. She also practices the ancient Japanese art of reiki, which reduces stress with a "laying on of hands" technique, and raindrop therapy, which mimics the gentle drizzle of cloud-dwellers’ tears by dribbling nine oils across the back and feet. Essential oils distilled from leaves, stems, and bark often accompany Bennett’s sessions.
