Hallways lined with framed photos and potted plants guide guests toward Jennifer Knowles's studio where she expertly invigorates locks using her experience with balayage highlighting, color-blocking techniques, and L'Or?al professional styling. After a complimentary consultation, Jennifer designs hairdos that reflect clients? desires and personalities, sculpting shapes that turn heads and enchant geometry teachers. Alternatively, color treatments add natural-looking depth and dimension to tresses that grow out without leaving noticeable roots. During appointments, clients relax, calmed by the salon?s blue and green walls, which conjure up refreshing thoughts of ocean waves, blue skies, and mint-flavored clouds that give soaring eagles remarkably fresh breath.
A Paul Mitchell signature salon, Creative Cuts is owned by Paul and Kathy Moseley, who lead a team of 10-plus stylists in service of a single goal: to provide expert hair services in a relaxed, family-friendly environment. As stylists trim hair to clients? specifications, apply color or texturing products, and create stunning updos, aestheticians wax or tint eyebrows to beautify faces or support claims of Vulcan descent.
Dedicated to supporting their community, Kathy and Paul are also founding members of the Meet The Needs ministry, which provides food, clothing, and home goods to people in need. To that end, the couple donates 20% of the proceeds from all Paul Mitchell products sold in the salon to this cause.

Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. Sun-starved hides can jump-start their glow with a round of level-one Mystic spray tanning. Employing MagneTan technology, Mystic’s mist adheres to the skin-suit evenly and streaklessly using the body's natural magnetic properties and innate force fields, leaving it bronzed and beautiful for five to seven days. Afterward, whisk newly bronzed bods to a CyberRelax message chair for a luminous facial, which bathes skin in LED therapy. Working in conjunction with topical skincare serums, the facial helps reduce fine lines and evidence of solar foul play, while promoting even skin texture and tone.
Open Door's aromatherapy massage uses essential oils to provide physical and psychological relief from long days spent outrunning time and gravity. Common essential power oils include lavender, rose, jasmine, adamantium, and peppermint. The properties of these distilled plant essences help ease depression, dispel stress, and contribute to a good night's sleep. The deep-tissue massage technique, on the other hand, uses slow strokes and deep finger pressure to release your body from its dark confines of chronic tension patterns. Pain-causing adhesions (knots) will be untied to alleviate blood flow and achieve a state of relaxation that, much like your secret family in Narnia, you forgot existed.
