After struggling with her own problematic skin, Lynette Sciulli decided to fight back. She enrolled in aesthetics school to became a licensed cosmetologist and aesthetician and has spent the past decade helping clients achieve their beauty goals. Sciulli is now the proud owner of an eponymous establishment that was named a top finalist in the Best Day Spa category of Fox 8's 2011 Hot List. Sciulli and her team employ the glo therapeutics line to perform relaxing facials that combat issues such as acne, dryness, or sensitivity with highly concentrated active ingredients.
The talented crew specializes in men's haircuts, which include an eyebrow and nose grooming, hot-towel facial, a shoulder and neck massage, and instructions on tying a silk cravat into the shape of a favorite sports mascot.

The massage therapists at Nice To Be Kneaded Massotherapy customize massage sessions to fit the needs of each individual.

The trained stylists at Rometrics Salon-Spa stay loyal to Aveda products as they shear tresses in the classic styles the salon has perfected throughout its two-decade life. They also add depth with highlights or administer perms for curls that clients can clip off to use as a slinky whenever a toddler threatens them. Rometrics’s aestheticians also cleave to Aveda products as they renew visages with facials, or employ LED light therapy to combat signs of aging. The nail technicians’ weapon of choice is Gelish or OPI polish, the bright colors of which enliven fingertips after paraffin treatments nourish skin. Clients hoping to complete their makeovers can also shade their skin with a spray tan, get their brows tinted, and evict leg hair with waxing. Newly offered by Rometrics, non-invasive body-contouring treatments target fat and smooth skin.
Those more interested in relaxation and inner harmony can stretch out amid the beige hues and wall sconces of a private massage room while a massage therapist kneads aching muscles and soothes their senses with aromatherapy. Those creamy hues also outfit the skincare room, and the styling area’s sage green and bright, cheery blue create a more energetic atmosphere for follicular transformations.
