Fruit, vitamins, and enzymes aren’t just what scientists throw at each other during food fights; they’re key ingredients in many of the skin treatments rendered at Dave’s Spa & Salon. Those treatments might specifically target acne or aging, whether via microdermabrasion that sloughs off dead skin cells or a vitamin-C facial that uses freeze-dried seaweed—straight from the Little Mermaid’s icebox—to reduce fine lines and mitigate acne. Stylists and technicians present a variety of other beautifying services, as well. Their body-sculpting treatments can noninvasively reduce the appearance of cellulite with Synergie vacuum-massage technology. Or, the team performs haircuts, deep conditionings, and color treatments to solidify new looks and styles.
The sun spills through the front window, warming the studio's sand-colored tile. A member of Posh Hair Salon and Day Spa's team greets guests as they step through the door, then guides them across the gleaming floor to salon or pedicure chairs upholstered in rich, black leather. Amid these sense-stimulating confines, owner and hairstylist Alana Knight?who lays claim to certification in hair extensions and multiple contributions to News Channel 3's Live at 9?oversees an aesthetics crew that serves the tri-state area through in-studio and mobile services. The team dispenses prettifying procedures, ranging from hairstyling and eyelash extensions to waxing and airbrush tanning, and coordinates services for special events such as weddings, Lil' Diva parties, or get-togethers celebrating voter registration.

Hair care services should be relaxing, something the experienced staff of Belle Ross Salon and Spa makes sure of when they treat each client to their signature shampoo and scalp massage steeped in tea tree oil, peppermint, and lavender. The soothing pre-cut and color service sets clients at ease before they surrender their strands to mane masters who wield handpicked Paul Mitchell products within a space accented with hardwood floors, invigorating lighting, and scissors whispering style pointers to new coiffures. Hair-smoothing services such as the KeraTriplex formula hydrates and fortifies fragile strands while the well-stocked Paul Mitchell color bar provisions new hues for guests looking to complement their skin tone or match a favorite hexadecimal code.
The stylists at Glam Hair Studio prove equally adept at making small alterations or performing exhaustive makeovers as they beautify clients. They trim and fashion tresses with the help of a certified colorist, drawing bold highlights, layering strands into pageant-ready updos, or combing in KeraSmooth treatments to level out frizz. For those who desire longer locks that look more natural than snipped jump-rope ends, stylists can adhere hair and eyelash extensions. Meanwhile, makeup artists accentuate features with complementary colors, just as spray-tanning technicians coat physiques in a flattering bronze sheen. The salon also features nail services such as mani-pedis, Shellac applications, and acrylic and gel nails.
About two decades ago, Vontyna Winfrey opened a single-room beauty shop with two technicians. Thirsty for industry knowledge, she went on to become a licensed massage therapist and aesthetician, and she continues to seek out the latest products and techniques at Nails Plus Day Spa. Winfrey deepens the relaxing effects of back massages with warm paraffin wax and a blend of essential oils, and she aims to rejuvenate the body via reflexology pressure points in the feet. During facials, Winfrey employs Twelve Palms formulas, which contain ingredients such as green tea, avocado, and sweet almond extracts, as well as products from Dermalogica and the BeVour line—the latter designed specifically for men. The day spa also offers manicures or pedicures for clients headed to nearby Graceland in blue suede sandals.
