Stylist Niccole Quello, a graduate of the Butte Academy of Beauty Culture, crafts classic and trendy 'dos in the luxurious confines of Sophisticate Salon. After a warm welcome from Niccole, clients describe their desired look. Before the cut, skilled hands massage scalps with shampoo to remove any traces from first-grade peanut-butter fights. The stylist then snips locks to perfection and tames, teases, or tricks tresses into the clients' style of choice. During the partial foil highlights, Niccole paints select strands before tucking them into foils to emerge as glittering thread. Inside the studio, ornate mirrors reflect flower arrangements and pink walls while hair products peek from dark wood displays and then recede, frightened by their shadows.
As soon as clients enter the deep-purple treatment room at Armonia Body Therapy, they begin to relax with aromatherapy and steamy towels, which are included with all services. In this calming environment, owner and licensed massage therapist Darlena Raspino then soothes sore muscles with various techniques, including Swedish massage and heat therapy. She can focus on specific areas, such as the upper body or face, or provide full-body relief with a custom massage that integrates stretching and deep-tissue techniques.

These treatments set a relaxing tone for medical treatments, including dermal injections and chiropractic adjustments.

Kalon Mind & Body Day Spa takes its name from a Greek word that means beautiful. The practitioners here strive to promote the philosophy that beauty is more than skin deep, and they help that inner beauty glow with treatments that cover the body from head to toe. Regular and Shellac mani-pedis leave hands and feet softer than a pillow's whisper. Enriching Aveda products enfold faces during facials, designed to exfoliate the skin with steam cleaning and extractions and to help clear away acne. And mud wraps, back-exfoliation treatments, and cellulite-reduction treatments ensure that the rest of the body feels equally lovely. The staff is also trained and experienced in assisting the elderly and disabled, and will travel to elderly or disabled clients' homes at no extra cost.
Owner LeeAnna Gibbs is a licensed massage therapist, but she likes to think of herself as a massage mixologist. This is a term she coined as a head nod to her own mixology massage service—a two-hour muscle-melter incorporating deep-tissue, Swedish, and hot-stone techniques to sideline chronic tension. Though this intensive treatment is her specialty, guests may also solicit these techniques individually during therapeutic 60- and 90-minute installments.
While images of whirring laser beams still conjure thoughts of technophilic futures, the technology is already hard at work at Fayetteville Laser. There, technicians wield noninvasive medical lasers that renovate bods with treatments ranging from body contouring to cellulite reduction. Their Contoura super-pulsed laser works to blast inches off of abdomens, thighs, and buttocks, and their Irradia laser reduces pain and inflammation associated with chronic illness or thinking too hard about how gravity works.
