If ever there were a group of hair color magicians, the team at Blue Water Salon would be it. Led by owner, master stylist and makeup artist Saretta Bowerman, Blue Water Salon offers a full menu of expert cut, color and styling services—including balayage, hair extensions and color correction—as well as eyelash extensions, waxing, makeup application and wedding styling. (Psst… Saretta is something of a celeb in the salon world—recently, she earned grand prize honors in the Braids & Brides contest by Modern Salon, which also named her part of its 2017 Artist Collective and the 2017 Modern Salon 100, a curated list of top social media beauty influencers.)



Finally: Self-storage that’s easy and affordable. Starting at just $7 a month, the super-friendly team at Box It To Me Valet Storage will pick up your items at your door, store them and deliver them back to you when you need them. Plus, you get free unlimited use of their large, sturdy storage boxes, which are all kept in their highly secure, video-monitored, climate-controlled warehouse right here in Southwest Florida. Have something that doesn’t fit in a box? Not a problem—they’ll also pick up and store your furniture, golf clubs, paddleboards and other unwieldy items.



We get rather giddy when we see beautifully organized spaces—pantries, closets, garages, you name it—which is why we looove Joyce Beers and NEAT Method. Joyce is a licensed home organizer who turns chaos into tidy, clutter-free perfection all around Naples, Bonita Springs, Estero, Fort Myers, Marco Island and everywhere in between. But her expertise goes beyond just home organizing—she’ll also help with unpacking and setup in a new home, space planning and arrangement, and even holiday prep.



Prepare to be pampered at Salon Bamboo Aveda, where your entire experience is all about rejuvenating and refreshing your mind, body and spirit through the power of organic and natural pure flower and plant ingredients. In the salon, choose from a range of personalized color, cut and styling treatments. In the spa, indulge in a number of facial treatments, massages, manicures and pedicures, waxing services, or makeup application. Wedding services and treatments are also available at the salon or on location.
