Owner and stylist Courtney Hunt enjoys the sound of her clients’ voices. That’s because she likes to involve her clients in their transformations by offering a consultation with each visit and welcoming feedback during services. Visitors can opt for a wet or dry haircut and repair damaged strands with an Awapuhi Wild Ginger Keratin Treatment. Courtney can treat frizzy hair with keratin-smoothing treatments or whisk away unwanted strands with facial waxing, which leaves skin as smooth as Tom Cruise’s glass eye. For home haircare, she provides information and sometimes discounts on products, such as Paul Mitchell's Awapuhi Wild Ginger Luxury.
Jamie Fleetwood liked working as an esthetician at Art Salon & Spa so much that she bought the beautifying business in 2010. Along with her staff of fellow estheticians, stylists, makeup artists, and massage therapists, Fleetwood pampers her clients inside the newly renovated, sun-drenched space. Her aesthetic touch might only be matched by that space’s decor: it’s accented with sleek hardwood floors, verdant plants, and earth tones as warm as a made-for-TV movie about dogs that adopt other dogs. Among these scenic fixtures, the team renders a slate of services in the form of facials, Shellac manicures, therapeutic massages, and highlights.
A licensed aesthetician, licensed massage therapist, energy therapist, and holistic health coach aim to balance their clients’ inner and outer energies at Synergy Wellness Spa and Salon. Massages knead away stress and facials scrub free dull skin, excess oil, and grime. Coaching services help clients move toward healthier living through guided grocery shopping tours, impromptu food fights in the produce section, and personal chef services.
The state-of-the-art, hospital-grade infrared saunas at Detox Haven help the clients who recline in their private confines to liquify fat and cellulite while eliminating toxins and heavy metals. The saunas send far-infrared energy washing over bodies to increase their core temperatures in an effort to purge the body of impurities without resorting to the stifling humidity of steam or lava rooms. Each session may burn 600-900 calories. Clients can work or read as soothing heat eases muscle aches and chromotherapy lights flash across bodies for extra pain relief. Each sauna also contains an iPod dock or CD player to keep ears occupied. After multiple sessions, clients may notice slimmer waistlines, greater senses of well-being, and the ability to melt snow before it reaches the ground.
