Inside Envision Salon & Spa, clients sit by a cozy stone fireplace while owner Danni Glenn channels 25 years of advanced cutting and coloring experience to craft their new look. The cosmetologist mastered European coloring techniques under the guidance of Keune's top educators. She went on to spend the next five years as an educator for the company, traveling throughout northeast Florida to share her skills with other salon professionals and flamingos born as natural brunettes.
Sharing the relaxing, sage-green space with Danni is nationally certified massage therapist Marla Taylor, who soothes achy muscles and clogged energy flows with reiki healing sessions or soothing LA stone-therapy massages. Guests can move from the serenity of her candlelit treatment room to enjoy a soothing facial or Shellac manicure, or just relax in the reception room's cushy, asymmetrical chair.
Between the facials she gives at the Pain Relief Centre, aesthetician Abrina Fechter busily researches new skincare tips. One of her latest finds is a list of 10 foods that nourish complexions with vitamins and anti-aging agents. This she already knows well, given that her multistep treatments incorporate organic dark-chocolate masks rich with antioxidants or pineapple tonics that exfoliate while stimulating cellular renewal. She is locating these resources primarily for her clients, hoping her tips for holistic skincare—exercise, reduce stress, keep your face in an air-locked tupperware container when not in use—will catch on. To set clients on the path toward a glowing visage, she bathes dry pores in seaweed-enriched Repêchage tonics and layers on enzyme treatments from Rhonda Allison that obscure signs of aging.
With the vision of a healing center combined with aesthetic beauty, stylist Kerri Humphries and health practitioner Sarah Ulmer formed a venture in 2005 that is now Vava'u Salon & Health Centre, formerly known as Confessions Day Spa. Housed in a new 4,800 square-foot building, the owners use client satisfaction as a measuring stick of success, often stating that it's important to accompany their clients on their journeys. The salon features a diverse menu of services performed by multitalented staff members. Signature non-surgical services such as bodysculpts and PRP face help to reinvigorate each patron's appearance and restore confidence. A color and aroma bar that helps style coiffures to clients' content. Facials help remedy myriad skin concerns, such as acne or aging, and massage ousts tension with Swedish or deep-tissue techniques.
The staff at Slim Body & Spa understand that weight loss isn’t just about appearances, it’s about general health, too. So, they combine their knowledge of diet, exercise, and preventative health care with effective technology such as the noninvasive Lipo Light, which causes fat cells to release water, glycerol, and fatty acids, resulting in body contouring and weight loss. They also offer nutritional counseling, body wraps, and whole-body vibration, and can customize combinations of programs to meet optimal and safe weight-loss results.
Thirty years ago, a mother, a son, and his wife joined forces to create their own barbecue restaurant, starting with family-inspired, made-from-scratch recipes. The formula proved to be a success, and although Woody’s Bar-B-Q is now under new ownership and management, they still dish up the same quality eats from locations in six states. The newly remodeled restaurant’s defining secret sauce decorates baby back ribs, pulled pork sandwiches, and roasted half-chickens.
