Licensed cosmetologist and make-up and nail artist Doreen Matheny has a passion for making her clients look and feel their best, earning a coveted Brides' Choice award from WeddingWire in 2013. Her skill set spans a wide range of cosmetic treatments, from soothing spa mani-pedis and natural hair removal, to wedding day makeup packages and natural-looking sunless tanning.
Speaking of tanning, each of Doreen's UV-free spray tans is a work of art applied by a real-life skilled technician, not an orangey glow obtained by an automated booth or an accidental fall into a vat of molten butterscotch. As a result, customers can expect a natural, glowing bronze customized to their specific skin type and tone.
At Firm Fitness & Spray Tan, visitors are transformed through a combination of hard work and aesthetic treatments. Personal trainer, co-owner, and competitive bodybuilder Phil Placko works one-on-one with clients to devise custom workouts. His studio is stocked only with essentials, its weight and cardio machines occupying a sparely-adorned room that's free of distractions such as blaring TVs and mimes. Outside the exercise rooms, infrared body wraps and massages help bodies flush out toxins and recover from intense workouts, while spray tan technicians administer golden glows to highlight every newly toned muscle.
At the helm of her self-named salon, stylist Lori Anderson and her staff regularly attend training seminars throughout the year to learn trendy styles and techniques. They bring their skills back to Lori L's Salon, where a modern, yet cozy and friendly environment welcomes patrons seeking haircuts, highlights, nail care, and waxing. They work to personalize each service to best fit the client?s needs and envisioned results.

What?s your favorite part about your job?
My favorite part about my job is seeing clients happy with a tan because it makes them happy about themselves.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I used to get airbrush tans, and I was always happy with the way it looked. It is also healthy for the skin, unlike tanning beds, which can cause cancer.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We have certified male and female technicians to ensure everyone's comfort.
To Constantina Hahn, hospitality is as important as the luxurious treatments and pristine facilities that won her studio a day spa Gold award from the Beaver County Times. Inside the homey spa, clients are greeted with complimentary coffee or tea and then led past rows of antique framed mirrors that reflect hairstylists and customers chatting like old friends. To make heads feel well-cared for, organic hair-coloring products??certified cruelty-free and vegan by PETA-customize hues, and Brazilian blowouts form a smoothing sheath around strands fried by chemical treatments or jealous short order cooks. Dermalogica skincare products also cater to individual needs and concerns as they are blended into tailored, age-defying treatments, and nail, waxing, massage, and tanning services ensure no limb, hair, tendon, or talon is left untended.
