Under the dual direction of style veterans Michelle LeHeureux and Kim Southerland-Keene, Old Towne Hair Design & Colour Studio beautifies and styles coifs with artistic techniques and gentle products. During the 90-minute Brazilian blowout, strands soak in Brazilian Blowout Zero products that mollify frizz and straighten locks without the use of harmful formaldehyde. The serum seals essential amino acids into the cuticle of each strand using a proprietary plant-derived bonding system, leaving even thin coifs with more root volume, much like fertilizing a flower patch with Wheaties. After the treatment, curls and kinks unwind into gentle waves, and head gardens remain guarded against humidity for up to 12 weeks.
With a duo of stress-relieving services, clients remove toxins and body waste simply by soaking feet in a warm foot bath for 30 to 40 minutes. During the ion-harnessing cleansing process, the body’s natural self-sweepers are activated, encouraging the release of harmful materials through the soles and into the awaiting basin. Pampered patrons may notice the water changing color over the course of the treatment, though this varies based on the individual’s health and accumulated impurities. Postsoak, bask in benefits that can include an improved sense of well-being, relieved tension, and spontaneous bouts of self-hugging.
Rows upon rows of carefully cultivated vineyards cover Loudoun County, the area of northern Virginia where Leesburg is located. The resort calls itself "the front porch of DC's wine country” for a reason: more than 25 wineries are scattered throughout the area, and nearly all of them lie within a half-hour drive. Leesburg itself looks like something out of a Norman Rockwell print. Its charming streets are lined with quaint 19th-century buildings, antique stores, and brick-front homes. It's less than an hour's drive from the fine dining, historical monuments, and marathon filibusters of the nation's capital.

Seasoned vascular surgeons Dr. Garth Rosenberg and Dr. Paul McNeill lead a knowledgeable staff in de-cluttering capillary-laced calves with contemporary sclerotherapy treatments at Capitol Vein and Laser Center. Experts destroy spider veins' superficial matrices of red, blue, and purple across legs by injecting slender microneedles under the skin to rapidly dispense a potent medication. The minimally painful sessions last 10–30 minutes depending on the number of areas treated and length of time needed for legs to achieve closure with their departing blemishes. Patients require zero downtime after the treatment and can promptly ditch the earplugs they used to keep legs' choruses of “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” from keeping them up at night. In out-of-office hours, Dr. Rosenberg and Dr. McNeill indulge an altruistic streak with a community scholarship fund and overseas pro bono medical care.
