AQUA Salon Spa, Raleigh's first pure water concept salon spa, is located in Brennan Station, at 8111-145 Creedmoor Road. In the fall of 2011, Aqua Salon Spa staff was dubbed The Mane Mavens by Day Spa Magazine, a national industry publication. Aqua was recognized for their commitment to community through their Beauty From The Heart initiative. The mission of Beauty From The Heart, is to identify and assist women and children suffering from Alopecia, with acquiring a hair prosthesis. The first referral from Duke University Hospital was Adrianna Shingleton, a brave, strong teenager suffering from hair loss due to a severe medical condition. Adrianna's mother contacted Roszetta, our certified Medical Hair Specialist at Aqua Salon Spa.
The most significant side effect of hair loss is low self-esteem.
Now, once again, the initiative is fortunate to receive another referral from Duke University Hospital. Amy Castro was diagnosed with a rare, malignant brain tumor, in 2005, at the age of eighteen. She was so devastated emotionally, it was necessary for her to seek professional help to cope. The Staff at Duke suggested that Amy contact Roszetta. According to Amy, even her psychiatrist believed the experience would positively benefit her emotional well-being. “When I first heard about Aqua Salon Spa’s, Beauty From The Heart Program, and Ms. Roszetta, I did not believe it would really work for me. My psychiatrist even thought it would help me. The staff at Duke showed me a resource video of the young girl who was the last recipient. Her hair looked really amazing. When the call came from Aqua to set my appointment, I cried. The unforgettable day was April 17,2012, the happiest time in a long time. It was the day I would get my new hair just in time for Mother’s Day. This Mother’s Day I am grateful for my lovely daughter, who is adoring her beautiful mom. I no longer feel depressed. I feel complete, happy and beautiful”. – Amy Castro
