Licensed aestheticians Lynda Young and Monique Mannino split their time between administering spa treatments at Rock Creek Medi Spa and educating students at its adjoining Esthetics Institute. The aestheticians helm a staff of technicians and valedictorian lasers who restore balance and radiance to skin. In addition to addressing epidermal concerns, staff members use non-invasive treatments to contour curves, reduce fine lines, and zap away unwanted hair. They also offer full-body fitness with vibration platform machines that help build muscle as you burn calories.
Combining keen aesthetic intuition with professional-grade products and equipment, the stylists at Front Street Hair Studio use an arsenal of techniques to create changing, energetic new looks for their clients. They begin each appointment with a thorough consultation, determining how anything from a quick trim to a full head of highlights will accentuate a client's best features, even if their best features are solving integral and differential equations. From there, the stylists tend to tresses using Aquage shampoos and styling products?made using nutrient-rich blends of organic seaweeds and algae?as well as vibrant coloring formulas by Wella.

Leather chairs, marble floors, and exposed ceilings blanket visitors as they enter All About You, an Elite L'Oréal Professionnel exclusive salon. Lauren Johnson and Amy Antoine, the duo of stylists that oversees these confines, carry experience as long as their most infrequent clients' hair. Lauren studied at The Salon Professional Academy, endorsed by Redken, whereas Amy has worked within the beauty industry for more than 20 years. Drawing from these backgrounds, they snip cuts, apply color, and add feather extensions. Other services include specialized L'Oréal treatments, such as a Fiberceutic deep-conditioning product that strengthens hair.
For 75 minutes, the stresses of daily life melt away as spa professionals first massage the back. Once they shift focus to the face, they'll use products from the likes of Repechage during facials designed to eliminate wrinkles and soothe sensitive skin. A foot massage caps off the treatment.
This retreat into relaxation, known as The Gift II spa package, occurs within the confines of White Lotus Beauty Bar & Wellness Studio.

The team also hosts special events that allow patrons to come and try the latest beauty products.
After a long and stressful day, some find a trip to the bar a nice way to relax and blow off steam. Broomfield's The Skin Bar serves a similar purpose to drinking establishments but without the libations and off-key karaoke singers. Its menu features a curated selection of skincare treatments that are designed to reduce the appearance of lines, improve complexions, and help the entire body and mind relax. Beyond the face, The Skin Bar's specialists dole out custom airbrush spray tans and attach long-lasting eyelash extensions.
