Be Unique Full Service Hair Salon helps enhance its clients beauty with a broad slate of salon services. Stylists sculpt unique hairstyles, smooth hair with keratin treatments, and add vibrancy with highlights and color. Aestheticians pamper nails with long-lasting shellac polish, and massage therapists alleviate injuries caused by annual wedding-reception dance sessions that have gone untreated all these years.
Doctors Weight Loss & Spa’s roster of physicians, captained by Dr. Ban Mechael, restores faces to youthful vigor with 30-minute, minimally invasive procedures. Twenty units of Botox render wrinkle-causing muscles inactive with miniscule shots, shooing away crow’s-feet and unfurrowing areas of the face that prevent skin from being as smooth as a stone bust of Barry Manilow. The beauty-boosting injection reaches its aesthetic potential within days and results generally last up to four months. Alternatively, Juvederm injections remedy wrinkles caused by loose skin with a specially formulated gel designed to smooth out epidermal expanses. Clients often experience mild swelling and tenderness following the treatment, but seven days of rest usually restores faces to fine fettle. Juvederm’s effects are noticeable immediately and usually last for up to a year, keeping faces absent of wrinkles like a shar pei's bizzaro-world twin.
Under the shear-wielding guidance of owner Tracy, stylists at Barbee's Beauty Boutique redesign coifs at teal stations stenciled with delicate white flowers. In addition to face-flattering cuts, they also revamp manes with rich single-process hues, frame features with highlights and lowlights, and add volume with hair extensions and industrial-strength bicycle pumps. Smoothing keratin treatments combat frizz semipermanently, leaving hair silky and manageable. Extending the pampering to other keratin-based areas, nail technicians gussy up appendages with manicures and pedicures.
Jeff Glebe studied massage at the Ann Arbor Institute of Massage Therapy. After graduating in 2001, he opened Michigan Therapeutic Massage to help people get through their body aches and discomforts and lead fuller lives. His first order of business was to assemble a staff of nationally certified therapists who also honed their skills at accredited institutions and in the real world. All male and female therapists are graduates from the Ann Arbor Institute of Massage Therapy and are nationally certified through the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. All that education shows during massage sessions that aim to decrease muscle pain, soothe tension, and make clients' elbows jealous of their backs. In addition to their talents at the massage table, the group also spends time continuing their studies to stay on top of evolving techniques.
Certified holistic practitioner Denise Strauss opened Vivo Wellness Center to improve clients’ quality of life through holistic services administered by experts certified in their respective fields. When not busy flushing away waste with colon hydrotherapy or restoring range of motion with therapeutic massage, practitioners also oversee BioMat therapy and far infrared sauna sessions, which help to alleviate joint pain and purge toxins from the body with the power of light. Denise and her staff also better bodies with nutritional assessments, ensuring clients receive enough nutrients and don't lack any substances such as essential vitamins or trace elements only found in chocolate-chip cookies.
Holistic Harmony Michelle Marie Phaup calls upon 17 years of training as a holistic therapist to bolster the health and relaxation of her clients with treatments that promote physical and mental well-being. She draws toxins from physical and energetic channels throughout the body during services that range from detoxifying Aqua Chi ionic footbaths to chakra balancing. Michelle understands healthy lifestyles require a full-time commitment; in personal consultations, she recommends raw-food diets and other at-home detoxification methods to act as fuzzy slippers on the pathway to holistic enlightenment.
