At Shelly?s Salon & Spa, professional stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists swaddle men, women, and young adults in fully custom salon and spa treatments. Before dousing hair wearers with Redken 5th Avenue products and up-to-date techniques born of continuing education, the skilled mane mavens consult with clients to decide on optimally chic looks based on face shape, hair type, and favorite style of powdered wig. Similarly, aestheticians examine skin prior to body wraps and custom facials and diagnose a regimen of cleansers and procedures specifically for each individual. Massage therapists take care to deliver tailored strokes as they seek out hidden tension pockets and tightly knotted tendons across corporeal landscapes.
