Style director and salon owner Shelley Hutchinson cultivates her crew with updated cosmetic education until they blossom from apprentices into senior stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists. During the mani-pedi, an experienced nailcare technician files nails and buff cuticles on both the fingers and toes, and coats each pincer in a layer of lustrous polish for reflecting light in case disco balls break down. Timid blood flow circulates through capillary parties as a massage therapist kneads the shoulders, neck, face, and all four limbs during a one-hour massage. Facial aestheticians performing mini facials and enzyme peels start by alchemizing Circadia anti-aging skincare products into a cleansing meringue tailored to each client’s skin type to rejuvenate faces with the sleeve-polished shine of youth.
Bamboo window shades, trunk-braided potted trees, and floral arrangements stipple the massage and facial treatment rooms, both of which are secluded from the bustling hairstyling area and the high-pitched screams of its cut follicles. Windows naturally light the earth-toned interior walls, and soft-lit ceiling spotlights accent the hardwood and granite-tile floors.
Shelley Salon and Day Spa
Like any good teacher, style director and salon owner Shelley Hutchinson believes you are never done learning. Her 14 years as a cosmetologist have led her to oversee a staff of hairstylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists, all of whom continue to hone their skills through educational seminars. As they absorb new techniques, they graduate on a track from apprentice to senior stylist, having chosen a major in either scissor biology or beehive keeping. Shelley herself attends international trade shows to keep up with the world's aesthetic tastes, adapting her knowledge of cuts and colors to make the most of the salon's partnership with Goldwell.
Inside Shelley's beautification venue, sunlight illuminates fixtures inspired by the natural world. Potted trees, floral arrangements, and bamboo window shades complement the earth-toned walls of private spa and public styling areas. The services also draw from nature: guests can warm their feet during the Tranquil Earth pedicure featuring hot rocks, or they can nourish their features with an enzyme peel's pineapple and papaya extracts.
