For more than two decades, cars have been emerging from Perretti's Auto Detailing gleaming with a like-showroom shine. The staff applies carnauba wax by hand, bestowing vehicles with a sheen that can last up to eight months and is impenetrable by squirt-gun attacks or razzberries from jealous neighbors. Rubout compound or correction cream can reduce the appearance of small marks and scratches, and the crew is careful to use only foam pads in order to prevent swirl marks. To match the like-new exterior, technicians can then move inside to clean and seal most surfaces, including cracks in leather upholstery.
Between each plush pedicure chair at Fresh Nails & Spa stands a translucent screen, giving clients just enough privacy to relax during a pampering nail treatment. The staff’s goal is to create an atmosphere that’s just as peaceful for everyone who visits the spa, whether they seek manicures, acrylic sets, or shellac polish, which resists chips for up to two weeks or 14 scratch-fights with a honey badger. They also specialize in threading, which they use to shape eyebrows and remove unwanted facial hair.
Overseen by a board-certified physician, the cosmetologists and aestheticians at Devine Skin Care perform a handful of services, all aimed at keeping clients beautiful. Performing only noninvasive treatments, they restore and renew skin with microdermabrasion and chemical peels, and banish unsightly cellulite and body hair with cellulite therapy and hair removal.
Experienced stylist Joi Robertson beautifies hair with everything from relaxers to spiral curls. Along with color and texturizing services, she cuts hair for the whole family as part of the styling team at Collegiate Hair Studio.
The team at Lumina Sanare Healing Center relieves stress and spurs the body's healing processes with holistic therapies inside a spacious, wood-floored center. The menu of services speaks to a penchant for both physical and mental healing. TMJ treatments relieve tender jaws, and respiratory steams coax congestion and unwholesome daydreams from sinus cavities. Lumina Sanare's wealth of therapies extends to acupuncture, facials, and a mastery of reiki, a technique that plies the body's electrical fields to alleviate pain and stress.
As an Aveda salon, Renew Salon and Spa keeps a fresh supply of Aveda products in stock to aid stylists as they wash, color, perm, and cut their clients? hair. The full-service menu also includes facials and mani-pedis finished up with coats of OPI polish. Makeup artists even use Bare Escentuals foundation to prep faces for special nights out or highly anticipated police lineups.
