    A local woman is opening up a new salon that not only beautifies clients, but also showcases and supports other locally-based woman-owned businesses. Read on for all the details.

    Melanie Scheel wanted to create a space that stylists can call home, a space that isn’t what you’d expect a salon to look like. At Gloss, you’ll find a high-end hair salon with a laid back vibe. 

    “You can come here to get swoon worthy locks while hanging out with a group of stylists who love and support each other and love nothing more than to make you feel like part of the family,” says Scheel.

    The aesthetic of Gloss is different from what you’ll find at many salons, and there’s a big emphasis on teamwork. 

    “We root for each other, we teach each other, and if you leave to pursue a different dream, it’s still your home base if you need or want it,” she adds. 

    Scheel, also known on Instagram as @the_balayage_mermaid, says her salon will open its doors on August 11. 

    Once the salon opens its doors, Scheel will offer the latest color and extension techniques, in a casual and fun environment.

    “Want your favorite celeb’s hair? Come see us at Gloss, no trip to California necessary,” she adds. 

    Additionally, Scheel wants to support local small businesses at her salon. She plans to carry locally-owned products for clients to shop while they’re there. She says she’s starting with Green Bee, a local, woman-owned beauty company.

    Gloss is located at 7251 Beechmont Avenue in Anderson Township. You can keep up with the salon on Instagram and Facebook.

    A local healthcare network launched a new medical spa to offer a beautiful blend of aesthetic services and medical expertise.

    The Christ Hospital’s Dr. Maccarone and Lauren Daughtery, RN, have teamed up to bring a new experience to patients at the health network. 

    “The Medical Spa at The Christ Hospital offers a range of services and products to enhance your natural beauty and reduce the signs of aging,” explains Dr. Maccarone. “With so many options now available, our goal is to bring you treatments and products that truly provide results, provided by highly-trained experts.”

    Dr. Maccarone is the medical director of The Medical Spa at The Christ Hospital and Daughtery is an aesthetician.

    Dr. Maccarone of The Medical Spa at The Christ Hospital

    The idea of opening a medical spa within the health network came from Dr. Maccarone’s passion for offering patients a place to go where health and beauty are considered in parallel. As a fellow fashionista, Dr. Maccarone also finds interest in aesthetics, mindfulness, and the science behind each of these from a medical perspective, allowing her to bring in the experience and passion to help patients achieve their health and beauty goals using her surgical skills, artistic background, and medical knowledge.

    A variety of services are offered at The Medical Spa at The Christ Hospital including laser treatments, injectables, and dermaplaning. 

    The laser treatments offered provide fast results with little to no downtime and include Laser Genesis by Cutera, a non-invasive treatment used to stimulate the skin’s natural processes to reverse many signs of aging skin including fine lines, enlarged pores, rough skin texture, and facial redness. Also offered is Excel V by Cutera, which effectively reduces the appearance of rosacea, facial and leg veins, age/brown spots, and acne scars.

    Injectables available at The Medical Spa and The Christ Hospital include Botox, Juvederm, and Kybella. Botox are small injections that help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles for a natural, more youthful appearance. “Over time, the muscles around your eyes and above and between the eyebrows repeatedly contract and tighten, causing wrinkles,” explains Dr. Maccarone. “But with just a few Botox injections, you can eliminate the appearance of wrinkles for a natural, more youthful appearance.” 

    Juvederm is a gel filler that adds volume to cheeks, lips, and smooths facial lines with lasting results while Kybella is a nonsurgical injection used to reduce excess fat beneath the chin.

    Lauren Daughtery, RN, of The Medical Spa at The Christ Hospital

    Dermaplane is a painless procedure offered at The Medical Spa at The Christ Hospital that gives your face a fresher, cleaner, and brighter glow while also allowing makeup to appear more smooth and flawless. This treatment exfoliates and rids the face of fine hair.

    The products offered by The Medical Spa at The Christ Hospital include ZO® Skin Health and Jane Iredale Skincare Makeup.

    The two locations for The Medical Spa at The Christ Hospital are now open at the Auburn and Liberty locations, and they have taken extra measures to ensure the safety of patients in the wake of COVID-19. 

    “Because we are a division of The Christ Hospital, our precautions are those required of any medical office regarding COVID-19,” explains Dr. Maccarone. “Face masks are mandatory for staff and also patients at all times, unless receiving a treatment. Staff are also required to wear face shields for their own protection. Our common areas and treatment rooms are disinfected and cleaned between patients and also scheduled hourly.”

    To learn more about The Medical Spa at The Christ Hospital, click here or call 513-564-1393. Your initial visit begins with a consultation to discuss your concerns and determine an individual treatment plan to achieve your desired results.

    Wish you could hit a reset button on 2020? Learn about an upcoming virtual conference that offers the reset, motivation inspiration you need to get back to fulfilling your dreams.

    Cincy Chic: What is the Reset Conference?
    Kendra Ramirez, Founder of Reset Conference: At the Reset Conference, we are helping each other move from fear and anxiety to joy and gratitude through conversation and resources and tools provided by our certified coaches. Your mind stops you from fulfilling your dreams. When we are in a good headspace, all things start to fall into place.

    Cincy Chic: What’s the inspiration behind it?
    Ramirez: The inspiration for the Reset community comes from my own life journey and work. I feel like I have found a secret sauce to living a full life and I want to share it with others. Thirteen years ago I was coming out of divorce and depression. Also, in the beginning stages of my first business in the midst of all of it. Good timing. It was a long road. I now live everyday with gratitude and joy. I have spent a lot of money and time navigating this journey and want to share it with others and hopefully they can figure it out quicker than I did.

    Cincy Chic: When is the next Reset Conference?
    Ramirez: The next Reset Virtual Conference is on October 1 from 9-12. Yes, this is through zoom but it won’t be talking heads. Myself and the speakers will be coming to you live from a production studio. We are creating a top notch interactive virtual experience. As always our events are never just “sit and get.” It is interactive and a wonderful opportunity to connect with others. We can all use a little more connection in a disconnected world right now.

    Cincy Chic: What can attendees expect at the event?
    Ramirez: Our attendees can expect the same high energy, inspiring stories and mindset exercises to implement after the event. Attendees have shared that they leave Reset feeling motivated to take next step, renewed sense of purpose, learn mindset exercises to unlock limiting beliefs, feel connected to others, found new friendships, feel that they are not alone, overcome negative self-talk, inspired to dream again, and encouraged to take time for themselves. We love hearing months after the events that people are still using tools that were given to them at Reset. 

    Cincy Chic: Who should attend the Reset Conference?
    Ramirez: The dreamers; Want to be Entrepreneurs and Side Hustlers; Entrepreneurs and Business Owners; Stuck in your career due to staying in your comfort zone; Getting passed over for promotions; Not sure you trust your own voice anymore; Gain back your confidence; Want to make a shift in your life but not sure where to start. All are welcome. This is a co-ed event.

    Cincy Chic: Why are you going virtual for this event?
    Ramirez: This was a hard decision to make for us as we love seeing and hugging our friends. We have decided to make this event virtual so we can honor health regulations and help others beyond our amazing Cincinnati community. 

    Cincy Chic: Who are the speakers participating? 
    Ramirez: We have three incredible speakers lined up for you. 

    Danyetta Najoli grew up in Harlem, New York City. She and her two older sisters were raised by her grandfather and uncle, after her parents tragically passed away, a year apart when she was just five years old. Although her childhood had the absence of her mother and father, Danyetta was loved and cared for by her close-knit family and special family friends.

    She self studied coaching at the Graduate School of Coaching – Coachville and Harvard Business School. Along the way, Danyetta became the dean of an international coach training school where she worked with coach trainers from around the world to pair them with coaching students in their countries.

    Danyetta has written Unstoppable Confidence: Sustaining a Posture of Success and was the editor and a collaborative author of, It Takes Money Honey, a book with proven strategies on Wealth Creation, Financial Freedom, and Developing Faith. She created a gift card set called 40 Keys to Excellence-Based Living which compliments one of her signature coaching experiences. Currently, she launched Maisha Bora, a publishing company for local authors who write or want to write on personal growth and empowerment topics.

    Topic: Reset. Allow. Attract. Act.

    Mary Miller is an International Motivational Speaker and CEO of JANCOA, Cincinnati’s largest family-owned & operated commercial cleaning company. Mary has a passion to encourage people to move in the direction of their dreams. Author of Changing Direction: Ten Choices that Impact Your Dreams, Mary outlines steps anyone can take to achieve their wildest dreams.

    In addition to running a business with almost 500 full-time employees, Mary has been an Associate Coach at Strategic Coach (the premier coaching program for entrepreneurs) in Chicago for 19 years. She is a popular keynote speaker for audiences around that world that want to focus on a vision of a bigger future.

    Mary’s forward-thinking and caring entrepreneurial spirit is evident in all aspects of her life. An energetic and enthusiastic business leader, she is notorious for her positivity and desire to help others realize their uniqueness and personal power.

    Mary’s life-changing work has earned her numerous accolades including the local 2017 EY Entrepreneur of the Year Lifetime Achievement Award & a Doctorate of Humane Letters from College of Mount Saint Joseph. Yes, Mary is indeed the Doctor of Dreams!

    Topic: Changing Direction-Transform the pains of the past into fuel for the future

    LaMarque Ward

    LaMarque Ward spent 9 years teaching and leading in Job Corps, but over time, he realized that the young people he served needed more than just academic instruction. They needed life coaching, someone to help them identify their personal goals and dreams, so they could build plans for their success. That’s when the idea for Dream Builders was born!

    LaMarqué founded Dream Builders University in 2009. His vision was straightforward: to educate people with relevant life-changing information, to challenge old ideas, and to inspire people in organizations and schools to deliver their highest potential to humanity.

    Topic: Dream Builders

    Cincy Chic: What makes you most excited about the upcoming event? 
    Ramirez: Over the last six months, I have talked with over 400 people who are struggling with uncertainty, trusting themselves and putting their dreams on hold. The timing of Reset couldn’t be more appropriate. We booked this date in January not knowing what would unfold. We are grateful to bring this enriching experience and highly sought after speakers to Reset. Each speaker will help you get unstuck no matter where we are in your journey. We also started a Reset shop where you can buy “Keep your fork” gear.  Why Keep Your Fork? Keep York Fork and Expect Good Things. This is a mindset for life. Our grandparents always told us to keep our fork for dessert. We keep our fork after dinner because we know something good is coming.

    Cincy Chic: Where can readers go to learn more, purchase tickets, etc.?
    Ramirez: You can learn more or purchase tickets at or on Eventbrite. Can’t make the event but would like more information on mindset coaching, let us know. We would love to help. This event wouldn’t be possible without US Bank’s unwavering and continued support.

      A local woman launched an organization dedicated to helping children battle life threatening illnesses, and leaving a legacy by making them the superheroes of their own stories. Click here for all the page-turning details.

      Photo: Angie Lipscomb Photography

      Sarah Curry Rathel has been working with children battling life-threatening illnesses since 2004. 

      “I’ve met hundreds of sick children from around the world,” she explains. “None of them asked for these terrible and scary battles, yet they have no choice but to face them. Some are born fighting for their lives and never know anything other than being sick. Others experience a trauma or the onset of an illness and the life they knew changes instantly. Either way, these kids go through so much that other children, and even adults, don’t understand. Yet, they still want to laugh and be ‘kids’ just like everyone else. Their hearts are pure but they are put into a life that isn’t conducive to just being a child. They deal with the effects of steroids or chemo, they have tubs running in and out of them, they need oxygen to breathe, feeding tubes to eat, and wheelchairs to move. Even though this forces them to become ‘old souls’ in a way, inside, they are still innocent children.”

      The desire to help these sick children be children is the inspiration for Curry Rathel’s nonprofit organization the Smile Books Project.

      The Smile Books Project is dedicated to bringing smiles to children suffering from life-threatening medical conditions. 

      Curry Rathel, alongside her illustrator and co-founder Robert Kelly, create personalized books to make each child the main character of their own heroic story, with the sales of each book being donated back to the child. 

      “Smile Books Project doesn’t keep any money raised,” says Curry Rathel. “By doing this, not only can we share the stories of these heroes, lift their spirits and even their legacies, we can also help raise money to support them.”

      Together, Curry Rathel and Kelly work with the families of the children they write about, which she believes is what makes the Smile Books Project so impactful. 

      “These books become such a huge success when the community rallies behind the kids and puts that extra support in place,” says Curry Rathel. “Working with children all over the world has allowed us to see the power behind strong communities and that is something I wish everyone could see. The love and support these kids feel through their own book is priceless.”

      Curry Rathel wants to do her part in making a difference in the lives of children with life-threatening illnesses by bringing a little joy to their lives with these books. 

      “Not only do we bring smiles and give these children an outlet, but we share their messages and leave their legacies,” she says.. “One of the most heartbreaking things I have been told by children is that they are afraid people will forget them. This book helps ease that fear if that is their situation. For the parents we have written books for, we give them the chance to share things with their children who will grow up without them. These parents share with us only things they would know or be able to tell their children, including words of advice and wishes for the future. For both children and parents, I’ve seen the relief that this brings. As truly devastating and heartbreaking as it is, this is one gift we can offer them in a creative way nobody else can.”

      Also, the Smile Books Project writes books about courageous adults with terminal illnesses to share their leagues with their children as well as for organizations to spread the word about their work, when possible. “With any book we do, proceeds are donated back,” adds Curry Rathel. 

      Curry Rathel says that the Smile Books Project is always taking referrals. Currently, she’s in the process of starting a book for a little girl born with a rare disease and a little boy with a rare form of cancer. “Both of these children are under the age of 5 and have already gone through more than most people will their entire lives,” she says. “We can’t wait to share their stories with the world.”

      New books for sale are featured on the Smile Books Project website. There, you can view the project page to meet the inspiring children, adults, and organizations we have written books for and purchase a copy there.

      You can find the Smile Books Project on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. There are also blogs and stories about the books they write on their website, “After a long day and in the world today, there is something inspiring and hopeful about those we write about and we hope that anyone following the Smile Books Project feels hope just by reading along,” adds Curry Rathel.
