At Pinnacle Institute of Cosmetology, budding beauty experts learn the ins and outs of life at a salon. As part of their training, the students practice their craft on visitors, but always work under the careful supervision of a pro. For a fraction of the prices typically charged by professional stylists or lawyers that moonlight as stylists, the professionals-to-be can enhance hair with custom cuts, color, and conditioning treatments. They also pamper visitors' hands and feet during mani-pedis, freshen skin with facials, and wax away unwanted hair from brows and lips.

Until humans learn how to download consciousness onto a computer, being beautiful will be important. Thank goodness for Natalie Morgan's Face Boutique. The salon's skilled aestheticians can swiftly wax away unwanted hair from brow outskirts, or reverse the signs of aging with an invigorating facial treatment. Guests may also request a specialty makeup session to transform a boring pumpkin into a sexy dinner date.
The stylists at Sanctuary Salon & Spa are committed to creating stylish, fashion-forward haircuts. But they're equally committed to making their clients happy. So before they ever pick up a pair of shears, they consult with each client to learn their hairstyling needs and goals. Then they assess the client's unique facial structure and features. The result? A haircut that's been wholly customized to flatter and please each customer. The stylists can also complement the new cuts with color services and keratin treatments.
Over on the spa side, on-staff aestheticians and massage therapists keep the pampering experience going. Aestheticians offer facials for all skin types?think clarifying, brightening, and anti-aging treatments. And massage therapists customize their therapeutic kneadings to each client, helping them relax while focusing on the most attention-starved muscles.
With 25 people on staff, including doctors, laser technicians, licensed aestheticians, a registered nurse, and a licensed massage therapist, Massage Contour offers an impressive number of services. True to their name, the spa's massage therapists practice a variety of techniques, including lymphatic-drainage, Hawaiian lomi lomi, and Thai massage. When it comes to contouring, they specialize in body-shaping and cellulite-reduction treatments that use radio frequencies, ultrasonic cavitation, lasers, and contouring massage. The spa's aesthetician provides even more indulgence in services ranging from chocolate-mocha body wraps to collagen-crystal facials. For added luxury, couples can book the spa's private suite, which features two massage beds, a soaking tub, and a relaxing lounge area with ample room for tango dancing.
Gr?fin Blau Spa wants to do more than simply relax their clients. At their new, large spa location on 4th St. in Hickory, with a private, soundproof room and fireplaces, the treatments and services are very results-oriented. Hair, nails, and skin get visible changes and spa-goers leave feeling rejuvenated. Clients can follow up a hot-stone massage with a body treatment, an anti-aging body wrap, teeth whitening, mani-pedi, hand-applied tanning treatment, tend to their thinking caps with sun-kissed highlights, or a Yon-Ka facial.
