Brandye Jagneaux draws on two decades of experience in the beauty industry to helm Salon Capelli Couture’s staff of hairstylists. She doesn’t need to watch them too closely, as each comes equipped with her own wealth of styling experience. Megan Louque counts herself among this team of experts. When she isn’t cutting hair into flattering shapes or brightening strands with partial or full highlights, she relaxes unmanageable kinks with keratin treatments, making sure not to splash the straightening formula on the curly fleur de lis designs that adorn the salon’s walls in tribute to Louisiana’s heritage. Sometimes, Megan’s love for local culture can be quite pronounced—she and her fellow stylists have been known to dye hair purple and gold for upcoming LSU football games.
The aestheticians and massage therapists at The Cabana Retreat pamper clients with a full array of facials, mani-pedis, and massages. Beauticians adroitly apply makeup and make nails gleam for special events, such as homecoming dances or live reenactments of E.T.. Equipped with haircare products from Paul Mitchell and Lanza, stylists help rejuvenate hair and restore its sheen.
Nature's Wellness provides health-minded clients with holistic opportunities to cleanse, relax, and improve their overall well-being. While traditional steam-powered saunas warm the skin, High Tech Health's infrared sauna treatment penetrates the body to a depth of 1.5 to 2 inches, inciting the body's cellular detoxification process to a riot of cootie purging. Heavy metal toxins, chemical residues, and foodborne pesticides get the boot, resulting in a clearer mind and blissfully relaxed muscles. The hot-handed sessions are thought to improve cardiovascular health, ease chronic pain, help control weight, and boost immune resistance to colds, infection, and dangerous DNA poachers.
In 20 years, someone could serve five terms as governor of Louisiana. With her experience, Rebecca Butler at Charlotte's Salon and Spa could have been the governor of Hair five times by now. She specializes in new styles of cutting and coloring. Extensions are another pillar of her hairdressing regime, and she might render them with partial highlights or deep-conditioning treatments.
Studying with Mayans from the Yucatán Peninsula and moving from health care to aesthetics: it’s all part of the job for Rebecca J. Brunfield and Kara Pylant, the specialists behind Vida Pura Spa. That dedication to knowledge is seen in all of their soothing therapies, which often include natural ingredients and ancient techniques. Body wraps reverse damage with Dead Sea mud, and scrubs reveal a youthful glow with blends of raw sugar, oatmeal, and green tea. A selection of facials specially tailored to address men’s skin, acne blemishes, and signs of aging ensures complexions dazzle like prisms with doctorates. Vida Pura Spa’s commitment to promoting positivity extends beyond its walls—the haven has partnered with several organizations to benefit the community.
