Aesthetics Etc. owner Ann Marie Ray strives to transform standard beauty services into relaxing sensory experiences. Her staff incorporates the flame-softened wax of collagen-infused candles into select massages, relies on brand-name gloProfessional products, and encourages clients to slip into cozy slippers and robes. Ann Marie's signature service is permanent-makeup application though, which is useful both for helping chemotherapy patients to aesthetically recover from the loss of their eyebrows or simply shortening a client?s daily face-prepping routine.
Before pursuing a career in makeup and skincare, Ann Marie spent seven years working a standard 9-to-5 job in finance. After years of persuasion and encouragement from her mother, a professional aesthetician, she left the corporate world and became a certified permanent-cosmetics specialist in 2002. Today, mother and daughter operate separate but noncompeting businesses, referring clients to one another for specific treatments or a second opinion on who left the milk out that one time in 1991.
The stylists and aestheticians at Head Quarters Salon and Spa cosset clients from head to toe with myriad luxurious hair and spa treatments. Like samurai, stylists at Head Quarters are classified in levels according to experience, education, and facility with a bo staff. Clients will spend up to two hours with either a Next Generation- or Designer-level stylist, who will rein in locks and clip away excess curls to achieve an elegant new ‘do. Upon completion of the fibrous hair art, naturally derived hair color and distilled sunlight assist the stylist in highlighting swaths of hair for maximum eye-catching appeal. Call ahead for an appointment.

Rometrics Salon & Spa's beauty experts strike a balance between modern and time-tested skin and hair remedies. The aestheticians employ high-tech LED light therapy to combat signs of aging. They train two frequencies of the light emitting diodes on faces in order to promote collagen production, repair damaged cells, and kill acne bacteria, all without any downtime. Other cutting-edge services include microdermabrasion and body-contouring treatments.
But the aestheticians also nourish skin with all-natural, plant-based Aveda products, and the stylists use the botanical line to strengthen and hydrate hair during styling services. To complete makeovers, the staffers shade skin with spray tans, wax off unwanted hair, apply no-chip Gelish polish, and use perms to create the kind of springy curls that clients can clip off to use as a slinky whenever a toddler threatens them.
Destiny Derma Spa & Salon's aestheticians dote on patron appearances with a line of top-shelf skincare products that nourish and moisturize. Certified organic or paraben-free serums by Eminence, Ilike, Image, Hydropeptide, Being True Cosmetics, Pure Illumination and Puramed are slathered gingerly across skinscapes to imbue skin with youthful radiance like the frosting on Peter Pan's birthday cake. Specialists bolster serum results by wielding an array of skin-smoothing devices, such as their diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wand or the Jet Peel device, which flushes away dull dead cells with supersonic jets of water and air.
