Solace Day Spa & Salon, a 3,100-square-foot AVEDA Lifestyle Salonspa located in Pier Park, embraces a holistic philosophy to their services, including a natural approach to health, beauty and skin care, by using AVEDA certified organically grown products. Solace will provide numerous value added services, as well as interesting touches and amenities that will be unique to the area.

Solace Salon’s services include hair design, color and unique treatments for men, women and children.  With a tiered price structure, based on the stylist’s education and experience, Solace makes it affordable for everyone to have an exceptional hair service in a beautiful environment.  Women’s cuts start at $25, and complimentary “trims” are offered between services!  “Our goal is that you always look your best, with hair design and color to compliment your features and lifestyle,” comments owner, Jennifer Staerker.

The salon is state-of-the-art with 10 styling chairs, European shampoo bowls and ergonomic hair dryers that are suspended from the ceiling to minimize shoulder fatigue on the stylists.  Solace stylists exclusively use Aveda hair color, which is up to 99 percent naturally derived and helps improve the condition of damaged hair with protective plant oils. Solace stylists are also required to maintain a high level of ongoing training and education, keeping up with all the latest trends, products and treatments.

The nail lounge is a quiet retreat unto itself, where guests can enjoy natural nail care in combination manicure/pedicure units that were handmade and customized for Solace by a company in Arizona. These plush units have pipe-less, stainless steel tubs to guarantee the utmost in sanitation comfort by allowing the guests to remain the same chair for both manicure and pedicure.

The spa offers guests, spa enthusiast and corporate clients an escape from the rigors of everyday life by focusing on their inner and outer wellness.  Highly trained, licensed massage therapists and estheticians will customize each spa experience to the guest’s needs.

The Solace Spa includes a full menu of services including massages (Swedish, Sports, Reflexology, Trigger Point, Lypossage & Pregnancy Massage), Aveda Signature and anti-aging facials, body treatments and waxing services. Foot soaks and customized aromas are a few of the added experiences Solace guests can expect in the spa.   The spa has a private entrance, which leads to the relaxing treatment rooms and a wet-room with a six-spray body shower.

An Aveda Advisor can take you on a sensory journey and explain the history and benefits of Aveda hair, skin, and body products, as well as makeup and candles sold in the retail boutique.   Guests can also create their own aromas to customize bath and body products, including color enhancing shampoos and conditioners at the Personal Blending Bar.

Locally owned and operated, Solace Day Spa & Salon was the vision of Jennifer Staerker.   In 2003 and after 10 years in the Navy as a Hospital Corpsman, Jennifer left the Naval Diving and Salvage Training Center in Panama City Beach and opened Solace Day Spa in Rosemary Beach, Fla.  Her goal was to build not just a salon and spa, but an experience…an escape where beauty and well-being converged.  She wanted to create a destination spa experience that would be part of everyday life; a spa and salon devoted to bringing visitors and locals back into balance with quality products and “high-touch” services.  Solace at Pier Park was born of a desire to better service the Panama City Beach guests and growing needs of the area.

Solace has aligned with Aveda, a globally recognized beauty industry leader.  Aveda is a pioneer in environmental conservation and awareness and ensures our products will not only benefit our customers through exceptional performance, but will positively impact the people and economies from which the product’s ingredients are sourced.  An important point of difference is that Aveda uses ingredients that are grown on sustainable farms and incorporates organically-grown or wild harvested, petroleum-free ingredients.  Aveda is also the first beauty company manufacturing with 100% wind power, which helps to lower our carbon footprint.

Aveda, who partners with salon and spa professionals around the world, sees beauty as a craft, not as a product result. Aveda beauty professionals are unique in the industry for their pursuit of a higher art: helping make their clients not only look beautiful, but feel beautiful.  This selfless quest to bring out the beauty in their client through genuine care differs from beauty industry norms.

Make Solace your escape from the ordinary…where beauty and well-being converge. Come find Solace!
