Using all-natural, organic products, Sinless Skin's aestheticians customize wellness treatments and skincare services in an inviting eco-friendly spa.

From the lobby's wicker couches to the private rooms' soft lighting and olive walls, the relaxing atmosphere influences every treatment, such as massages steeped in the aromas of essential oils and electrolysis hair removal focused on pampering the skin.
Faye Bailey was beginning an uphill battle when she told her mother she wanted to open her own salon. Faye had been braiding and pressing hair since she was 14, but her mother worked as a teacher––and all 11 of her other children attended traditional colleges. After a brief stint at the university, though, Faye could no longer ignore the pull of hairstyling.
Thus, Faye moved from Macon, Georgia to Florida and started studying at a beauty school. Before long, her dream became a reality: she opened All Dolled Up Salons and Stores. Now a chain of five salons, including a braidery house, her stylists specialize in natural hairdos such as loc styling, cutting, and short hair wraps. But they also color, perform smoothing treatments, and affix weaves to natural hair.
The experts at Healing Laser Centers can ease pain without a single touch. That's because they harness the healing power of the cold laser, a device that sends low levels of energy deep into strained and injured muscles to jump-start the healing process. In each 5- to 20-minute treatment, staffers suffuse the body with this powerful light energy to relieve pain caused by work stresses, athletic endeavors, or attempts to give itself a back massage. Many patients feel nothing during the treatment and often feel progressively better for days afterward. To enhance the technology's muscle-mending capabilities, the center also keeps massage therapists on staff for hands-on tension relief.
Wielding a spread of hair-thin needles, licensed acupuncture physician Marilyn Aracena utilizes traditional Chinese medicine techniques to improve her clients' health and relieve chronic pains. Her acupuncture treatments help unblock the body's natural energy flow, or qi, in order to relieve mental stress and physical aches caused by blockages. Nature Wellness also offers tuina massage, cupping treatments, and other forms of therapy for clients who prefer a more hands-on approach to relief or who still harbor grief over a balloon that they popped as a child.

All salon service providers are not created equal. That's why Drew James Aveda Salon Spa enlists only Aveda Institute graduates, putting them through an advanced training program before making them work their way up a three-tier ranking system. This emphasis on high-quality staff—coupled with an exclusive selection of plant-based Aveda products—lures clients in for services ranging from basic haircuts to thermal straightening to rosemary-mint body wraps. The salon and spa also adds special touches to many of its treatments, including a complimentary stress-relieving scalp treatment and makeup touchup with each hair service. Both locations feature a wall of mirrors and trendy styling chairs, as well as Aveda tea for clients to sip on while thumbing through style portfolios or folding magazines into swans somehow.
