For spa owner and Aveda-trained cosmetologist Jenica Zimmer, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. That’s why she only stocks organic and environmentally friendly products such as Davines, a haircare line that adopted a carbon-neutral policy for its serums. The care that goes into selecting these products is echoed by the treatments themselves, with stylists trimming hair or selecting colors to flatter clients’ features.
Back in the spa area, aestheticians can be found brightening and smoothing complexions with botanical-based treatments, including a papaya-and-pineapple mask. The skincare specialists also customize facials to address each client’s skin type and apply makeup for special events or dance performances. In addition to removing hair from the usual places—such as eyebrows and bikini lines—they concentrate on oft-ignored areas including ears, noses, and second noses.
