Led by Angelique Lewis, whose work has been featured in Style and Self magazines, a team of experienced stylists at Studio A Salon upholds Aveda's vision of connecting beauty, environment, and well-being. In their Aveda concept salon, the team strives to restore both inner and outer beauty, relieving stress and reenergizing the body through haircuts, conditioning, and color services. They also smooth textured or frizzy hair with keratin and hair-relaxing treatments. They finish each new 'do with Aveda's 97% plant-derived, globally sourced, and sustainably harvested haircare products—made from mineral-rich dead sea salts, organic honey, and proteins from the Peruvian rainforest—that leave hair healthy and slightly sheepish about not recycling its shampoo bottles. The salon also offers mani-pedis and a boutique selling Aveda products and glittery costume jewelry.
Laurie Smith has experienced a lot of things. She studied sociology and Asian cultures in college with an emphasis in the Chinese language. She worked as a security guard at high-risk locations. But she didn't discover her passion until she went into the beauty industry. She approached hair styling with the same energy and dedication as she had the rest of her studies, and graduated with honors from the Aveda Institute of Royal Oak.
Today, she straightens, extends, colors, and cuts hair of all textures. She uses products from her alma mater, Aveda, as well as industry professionals she finds inspirational, such as Paul Mitchell. More than the products or training, though, she believes her passion sets her apart, and helps her clients have a truly great experience in her chair.
The technicians at Naturally Yours Nail Spa draw from 19 years of experience to help bring damaged or faded nails back to brilliance. During treatment, you’re free to watch TV and talk out confusing soap opera plotlines as the nail techs pamper each of your fingers and toes. In services such as hydrating moisture manicures and spa rejuvenating pedicures, the specialist will then examine the client’s skin, apply a cooling masque, and massage the hands and feet before rekindling digits with polishes. The spa also carries sculpture acrylic nails and offers nail rebalancing services.
An expert in cosmetic dermatology, Dr. Steven Grekin has made it his mission to help people put their best faces forward. With the help of the staff at Skin Perfection, he provides clients with medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology services that range from all-natural acne treatments to Botox and mole or cyst removal. The Grekin product line enables clients to continue to care for their skin at home after treatments without having to keep it moist by sleeping in a pile of juicy plums.
The skilled beauticians at Amy’s Nails Plus help visitors maintain their digits’ dignity with relaxing nail services administered amid copper-framed mirrors, pendulant drapery, and wooden bookshelves. During the spa pedicure, beneficiaries recline in cushioned wicker chairs while yielding their feet to a soothing massage that incorporates sea salts, lotion, and serenades from onlooking clouds. After peds are properly softened up, an artist reshapes sawtooth nails and bedecks toe tips with vibrant polish. Guests can also opt for a full set of gel nails, which adds eye-catching length to fingertips so they can fill out roomy falconry gloves. An application of gel nails provides a natural-looking alternative to acrylics and results in little dehydration to the natural nail when removed.
