Prior to starting her very own studio in 2013, Michelle Kelly climbed the spa ranks from apprentice to master aesthetician and became well versed in skin's the many conditions and changes. She also deepened her understanding of the muscular system and relaxation by becoming certified as a massage therapist. Now she incorporates soothing kneads into many of her services, lending an extra therapeutic element to her facials and back treatments. She also
uses professional Dermalogica and Image Skincare products, as well as holistic aromatherapy oils and pharmaceutical-grade peels.
Physique Exercise Salon helps visitors sculpt their muscles and condition their cores with a range of Pilates classes throughout the week, some held as early as 7 a.m. In addition to classic and cardio Reformer sessions, the studio holds barre fitness classes, which teach participants to use their body weight as resistance through elegant dance as well as Pilates.
Some might call Shanna Bustichi Peuse a perfectionist, but she’s not complaining. Results matter to this licensed aesthetician and makeup artist, who has a passion for creating complexions that look, feel, and sound as smooth and youthful as a newborn saxophone. Working independently in the Look Salon Boutique & Spa, Shanna begins most appointments with a brief consultation, in which she carefully analyzes the skin and teaches clients how to unlock their inner beauty at home. Her facials nourish pores with ingredients such as collagen and vitamin C, and corrective treatments fight wrinkles and blemishes with retinol, lactic acid, and LED lights. A makeup kit stocked with quality creams and powders from Jane Iredale, Stila, Mac, and Tarte also serves her talented hands as she designs stunning day-to-evening faces and special-occasion looks that have graced brides, fashion shows, photo shoots, and the occasional baseball card.
