Depending on their beauty goals, the clients of About Faces Salon & Spa report to one of several aesthetic divisions. Owner Denise Walden Cooper, for example, acts as the resident skincare expert. With her aesthetics team behind her, she leads the fight against blemishes and signs of aging with products from Dermalogica and Jane Iredale. She also takes advantage of newer technologies, such as a facial add-on that uses stem cells from plants, striving to increase collagen production and allow flowers placed behind your ear to root there permanently.
Across the space, whose beige walls are accented by oversize mirrors, wooden salon stations, and shelving stocked with colorful products for sale, hairstylists craft both edgy and simple 'dos. Their Redken, Goldwell, and Pureology formulas nourish and color locks, and their complex updos prep clients for big events. Mani-pedis, waxing services, body treatments, and massages round out the salon's menu, which readily accommodates large groups and wedding parties.
Qui Si Bella Spa's devotion to holistic and eco-friendly products doesn't stop with its organic herbs or eucalyptus-scented steam—even the spa's Kangen ionized water is specially purified to retain maximum mineral content. Rainforest herbs and organic ingredients comprise facials inspired by different world cultures, and scrubs and wraps refresh skin with coconut-milk soaks and botanical-infused scrubbing salts. Qui Si Bella’s staff also massages sore muscles, treats digits to manicures and pedicures, and applies permanent makeup to eyes, eyebrows, and lips. Additional services such as chiropractic, weight management, nutritional programs, and hydrocolon therapy led by Sandra Sphar help round out the spa's menu.
Patty Sue loves holding hands. At Shear West Salon, she holds them while tending to cuticles and shaping nails during one of her manicures. She also holds onto feet as she softens calluses and coats nails with colorful polish. She works alongside a staff who cut away split ends, sweep strands into stunning updos, and color hair with Goldwell products.
At Treat, aestheticians employ the skincare boutique's large assortment of all-natural and difficult-to-find products to rejuvenate clients' bodies and minds. To combat signs of aging, aestheticians nourish skin during all-natural facials using formulas from a choice of five different lines, including Darphin, Éminence Organic Skin Care, and Arcona. When patrons enter the store for waxing, tinting services, or a relaxing Swedish massage, they are greeted with scents such as the lily and jasmine home fragrances by kai, each reminiscent of a morning walk through the garden or a leisurely childhood as a Cabbage Patch Kid. Visitors the the spa can also browse a boutique of recommended products.
