Virtually no aesthetic concerns go unaddressed at Essentials Spa and Salon, which employs a diverse team of stylists and aestheticians as well as med-spa technicians armed with contemporary cosmetic technology. The salon staff keeps its clients looking sharp by pampering tresses with haircare products by Moroccanoil, KMS, and L'Oréal Professional, and the nail technicians augment their mani-pedis with everything from paraffin dips to agave-nectar rubs.
The massage therapists treat concerns beneath the surface by kneading overstressed muscles with a variety of soothing modalities, but the med-spa team also strives to effect deeper changes. Overseen by Dr. Michael Lesser, the technicians can employ cutting-edge equipment and products, including microdermabrasion wands, a cosmetic laser system, and clinical-strength skincare balms. These treatments collectively rejuvenate the skin while minimizing the appearance of blemishes that typically accompany aging, sun exposure, or frequent naps in a bathtub full of wet newspapers.
Try as they might, home brewers cannot transform barley and hops into bubbly craft brews with the flick of a switch or a hearty whistle. For tools, equipment, and advice, brewers congregate at the Savannah Home Brew Shop, where they can sniff and sample specialty grains, yeast, and malts from Crosby & Baker. Students stock up on shiny new brewing equipment from Foxx while scouring available brewing books and magazines for the up-to-date trends and tips. The staff at Savannah Home Brew Shop can guide novices through their first fermented steps with home-brewing kits, as well as starter kits and supplies for wine makers. Seasoned brewers load up on brand-name liquid or dry yeasts, and hoist bulk bags of dry grain on their shoulders as they try to outrun the sprightly Saint Paulie girl that just stole their stein.
The Savannah Walks leads newcomers and locals alike through the shadowy, moss-laden squares of Savannah’s historic colonial district during informative guided tours. Each outing provides a unique twist on the city and its unmistakable charm, covering topics such as Savannah during the Civil War, historic fine homes, majestic gates and gardens, and local pubs. Tour guides all boast scholastic bona fides, including among them three published authors and three college professors. The Savannah Walks easily accommodates school groups, civic organizations, corporations, celebrities, and animals standing on each other's shoulders under an overcoat.
