Though massage therapist Stacy Smith believes deeply in holistic healing methods, hands-on education and training remain paramount to her treatment philosophy. Stacy has trained extensively in massage and the study of human anatomy, and she is nationally certified by the NCBTMB. She bases most treatments at Full Circle Massage around Swedish and deep-tissue techniques, though she also uses hot stones and acupressure to help relieve tense musculature. Traditional spa services such as facials and body waxes augment the lineup of massages, ensuring clients' outer beauty matches the inner zen gardens that sprout during massages. Aesthetician Maria Botero takes a personalized approach to give clients of all skin types facials with the latest technologies and cutting edge products. Her passion for life and the field of beauty help her inspire each of her clients to feel confident and beautiful, inside and out.
Salon Valente offers a variety of beautifying spa services. Stylists pay particular attention to personality and face shape while skillfully snip hair into cuts for women, men, and children. They add bursts of color with full or partial foils and also offer corrective color and root retouches. Other services available at the salon include hair extensions, manicures, pedicures, and waxing.
Inside an old house converted into Tangles Hair Salon, hairstylists and nail technicians beautify their clients. All nail and pedicure services take place inside a private room. Additionally, the stylists use organic haircare products as part of their commitment to the environment.
At Air Salon & Spa, the stylists are big believers in beauty: both the beauty of chic, polished hair and the beauty of nature. The two aren't at odds, either, thanks to the salon's eco-friendly business practices. For starters, the team tends to tresses with products from Italy's Davines, Alterna Hemp, and Bamboo Organics—brands that eschew harsh chemicals for natural alternatives while still producing rich color and intensive hydration.
In a similar vein, the salon has built all its workstations with reclaimed materials and furnished the space with vintage furniture from local shops. Even if you get a paper printout of the menu, which encompasses services from custom cuts to eyebrow waxes and pedicures, you can rest easy. Air Salon & Spa prints all its paper products on recycled paper with soy-based ink—a strategy as environmentally friendly as the typical bicycle-powered printer.
Salon owner and senior stylist Kristen Gaglione steers the ship at Platinum Hair and Nails, where she exerts more than 24 years of experience—plus authority as a certified educator of the Keratin Complex Smoothing System—to ensure clients' satisfaction with the help of her staff. The team boasts an array of cosmetic certifications and includes a Redken color specialist, an eyelash-extension expert, and a makeup and nail technician. Together, the beauty experts offer a menu of services ranging from mani-pedis to hair extensions.
The Exotic Tans staff offers both UV and sunless tanning. They show clients to standup and lie-down beds, which imbue bodies with shades that suit a variety skin types. Exotic Tans' facilities are outfitted with spray booths for those who prefer UV-free bronzing, and trained professionals are on hand to administer airbrush treatments. Like snow sandwiches, they also whiten teeth in addition to helping clients slim down with body wraps.
