Spa Sweet Water’s Venetian-inspired décor and the Southern hospitality of its skilled staff combine in an explosion of opulent charm that jettisons off spa walls and sticks in the hearts and glowing visages of its beautified clients. Trained aesthetic architects assess facial façades before the 60-minute house facial to evaluate skin types and select the proper pore potions. The experts will choose from an array of purifying, hydrating, revitalizing, clarifying, and soothing masks to give each individual countenance a custom de-gunking and smoothing. This relaxing deep clean invigorates facial skin, leaving it rejuvenated, healthy, and less likely to slide off.
HotHeadz Salon's staff combines 60 years of collective experience to beautify clients with indulgent manicures and pedicures as well as hair services—from extensions and color to special-occasion updos and blowouts—for men and women. When seated in the cushy leather treatment chairs, guests may recognize a familiar face treating their hair. Former WWE wrestler and MMA artist Sean Haire has recently joined the HotHeadz team, passing on the same sharp style he exhibited on the cover of South Magazine. The salon's other staff members tout equally impressive credentials. Three of the stylists have been certified as Blonde Me colorists by blonding master Kim Vo. Together, the HotHeadz family tirelessly caters to each individual's taste. All of their work is guaranteed, allowing unsatisfied clients to ask for a complimentary re-do or an "I'm Sorry" card written in shampoo.
