As a therapist, Kelly was never content to settle on one craft. After graduating from the Baltimore School of Massage in 2000, she began practicing as a certified massage therapist. Soon, she also delved into detoxification and weight loss, became a licensed aesthetician and makeup artist, and trained in holistic techniques such as reflexology, chakra balancing, and energy work.
Today, Kelly follows her passion for making others feel beautiful inside the private rooms of her quiet Pikesville spa. To cultivate a serene atmosphere, she surrounds her clients with candlelight, aromatherapy, and soft music. Her range of skin treatments can cleanse pores, repair sun damage and acne scars, and infuse faces with nourishing herbs or vitamin C. She also coaxes out skin's natural glow and strangers' spontaneous compliments with back facials, body polishes, and spray tans.
The attentive staff at LeSalon de Beauté beautifies hair, skin, and nails, striving to anticipate clients' needs in a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. Stylists transform strands with color and texturizing services, including spiral perms modeled after famous DNA double helixes. The team targets stress with Swedish, deep-tissue, or myofascial massages and mani-pedis that can include a hot stone hand or foot treatment. The community-minded salon has also supported local artists by displaying paintings and other works.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. A. Miller Alonso brings more than 25 years of experience to his practice, two decades of which was spent as chief of plastic surgery at St. Agnes Hospital and Harbor Hospital. He specializes in cosmetic treatments such as face lifts, tummy tucks, and thigh lifts, in which he deftly hones curves, tightens sagging skin, and transforms dimpled surfaces into smooth laminate countertops. When he's not whittling figures at Creative, Dr. Alonso is traversing the globe organizing surgical missions and teaching surgeons how to perform techniques of his own invention.
The proprietor of The White Peacock named her salon after a unique animal that, despite its unadorned feathers, often draws more oohs and aahs than its more ostentatious kin. The animal's subtle, yet striking look embodies the salon's philosophy: "Beauty is bold in its simplest form." Here, a skilled aesthetician reveals her clients' own natural good looks through facials, artful waxing, and herbal body retexurization treatments. Add-on services fight acne and the signs of aging, and brow tweezing sculpts eyebrows into arches, tapered lines, or Morse code messages. To improve features even further, she also delivers makeup applications, lash extensions, and lash tinting.
The physicians and certified medical practitioners at Physicians' Laser Center educate their patients on the gospel of lasers with a broad menu of cosmetic laser services. Under the supervision of physicians, the practitioners calibrate FDA-approved lasers to each patient's hair color and skin type. They bend the beams to zap body hair, smooth wrinkles, heal scars, kill nail fungus, fade tattoos, and blind a passing cyclops. Physicians' Laser Center distributes its ace doctors and versatile lasers among five locations in the DC area.
La Clinica is a full-service salon and spa that has been serving up bevies of beauty to Baltimore for more than 30 years. The salon's experienced stylists will start you off with a luxurious lather, before follicles get doused in a powerful Japanese conditioning potion. The Japanese serum will be massaged into the scalp to tackle tangles at the source, and then covered by a cap to give modest strands some time to saturate in solitude. After being blasted by the gentle, warm breath of a salon dryer, head noodles will emerge silky smooth, moisturized, and strong enough to be used to hang decorative hammers on walls. To complete your cranial overhaul, a skilled scissor shaman will work with you to design a 'do that fits your lifestyle and personality.
