Helaine Marie has refined her hair-coloring technique over the last two decades and now creates rich tapestries of color with her certifications in Wella and Framesi. She opened her eponymous salon in 2004, inviting expert aestheticians to grace the rooms of an intimate, fairy-lit space draped in lilac curtains. A certified Master Colorist, Marie specializes in complex corrective programs and foils, including her signature highlight treatment. The Foliage Foil evokes the glow of the woods in autumn with blends of copper, crimson, and the deep gold of slowing photosynthesis caused by winter's Midas touch, each mixed individually to warm clients’ natural hues. To remain a well-rounded stylist, she earned two certifications in re-texturing and trained her shears with KMS California, mastering their cutting techniques to become a style council trainer. Helaine Marie is also certified in the Ouidad cutting technique and the Pureology system and carries both product lines in their entirety, in addition to offering the ammonia-free, oil-based Chromatics Color Line.
Offering a bevy of quality salon services, Kenzo Salon is staffed by a skilled team of stylists that expertly maintain coiffures and imbue follicles with trendsetting flair. Drop in and kick back amid the sleek décor, which boasts plush, modern furnishings, lofty ceilings, and softly backlit mirrors.

After their appointment, clients will be ready to strut their stuff with newfound confidence while simultaneously flexing thousands of stylish follicular muscle fibers.
The aestheticians at Forever Young Day Spa & Laser Center seamlessly integrate medical technology into treatments that balance both skin and body. To ensure that the journey toward hair-free limbs and winkle-free brows is safe and efficient, the team relies on FDA-cleared lasers and cosmetic injections. Meanwhile, nimble hands wield hair-fine acupuncture needles, deliver flowing effleurage strokes, and place hot stones with precision to reap both physical and mental benefits. Traditional facials deploy serums rich in botanically derived antioxidants and vitamins from skincare lines such as Credentials to empty pores and rejuvenate complexions. More advanced counterparts use low-level electrical and sonic frequencies to boost skin elasticity and rid the dermal surface of bacteria and pigmentation.
