Early on as a child in Munich, Germany, it was clear that Ulie Stewart had an eye for hairdressing. After practicing on Barbie dolls, she graduated to humans when she began to style her own hair. A youthful interest soon became a lifelong passion and eventually a career.
Today, Ulie tends to clients’ looks inside the salon she opened with her husband, Michael Stewart. She and a talented team of stylists provide services that leave tresses highlighted or fully colored, straightened, or accented with weaves. Other treatments embellish nails with acrylic tips or accentuate faces with makeup suitable for everyday wear or especially glamorous trips to the library.
Antistress body wraps. Strip-free waxing. Bridal makeup. Acne-fighting facials. Microdermabrasion. The staff at The Spa Lady maintains an extensive roster of services so that no potential client’s needs go unaddressed. All spa services take place amid The Spa Lady’s soothing environment, further easing guests into relaxation.
Licensed master cosmetologist Ginette Gilbert runs the show at Djea Natural Hair Spa, where she oversees a team that specializes in natural hair services. Professional African braiders twist hair into intricate patterns, while stylists cut and color hair, sew in weaves, and style strands into cascading waves. To do so, the team uses products from Pravana and Uncle Funky's Daughter haircare lines, the latter of which conditions and defines hair using plant-based ingredients such as aloe and coconut. Elsewhere in the salon, aestheticians treat skin to clarifying face and body treatments or enhance glances with faux eyelashes.
