After receiving two calls from an alarm system company about the Howard County day spa she owns, Lynn Shannon made the five-minute trip in her pajamas in the middle of the night to see whether anything was wrong. When she arrived, she found Lynn's Day Spa on fire. "I saw the flames shooting out of the roof," said Shannon, who has owned the Columbia spa for more than a decade. The blaze occurred about 1 a.m. yesterday at 10720 Little Patuxent Parkway. No one was injured, but the fire caused about $1 million in damage, according to county fire officials.

This fall, 11-year-old Shayna Slatkin will start middle school. Before her first class, she and her mother will cover all the usual bases: shopping for new notebooks, pencils and erasers - and visiting a spa for a new look. Shayna, who lives in Baltimore, is a client at Salon & Spa Kids, a Pikesville hair salon and day spa that caters to the youthful set. With bright colors and scaled-down furniture, the salon provides a welcoming environment for preschool to high school-age kids, who can relax with a DVD as they get a haircut or lounge in a butterfly pedicure chair during spa treatments.

JoAnne E. Young, the popular receptionist at About Faces Day Spa in Towson, died Tuesday of bone cancer at Stella Maris Hospice. She was 51 and lived in Conowingo, Cecil County. Mrs. Young kept watch from her desk just inside the door of the spa, on the upper level of the Shops at Kenilworth, where she worked for more than a decade. The spa was founded in 1978 by Helga M. Surratt. With diplomatic aplomb, Mrs. Young raised the level of customer service to a high degree as she made and changed appointments, soothed the anxious, accommodated the desperate and functioned as cashier.

A popular Columbia day spa closed last week, leaving hundreds of would-be patrons holding holiday-time gift certificates that could be worthless. Holistic Skin & Body Care Center closed Dec. 10, declaring bankruptcy after several months of poor revenue failed to meet high overhead costs, according to owner Laura Solash Gensler. After nine years in business, the day spa had been on shaky financial ground for the past several months, Gensler said. A poor economy compounded by the terrorist attacks in New York and at the Pentagon pushed the company over the edge.

Nestled in the shadows of towering apartment and office buildings along a busy stretch of Joppa Road, the salon would be easy to miss if it didn't look like a house that has sprouted from nowhere with its creamy beige vinyl siding and covered porch. Most of the customers who find their way to Usha's Salon and Day Spa in Towson are like 16-year-old Jasmine Osima and her mother, Joan, of Owings Mills. Mother and daughter began making biweekly visits about a year ago after a family friend raved about owner Usha Gupta's increasingly popular use of threading, an ancient facial hair-removal process.

The name Farashe - "butterfly" in Moroccan - hints at the transformation that the owners of Columbia's newest day spa are so keyed into. Ranjana Bhasin and Nanousa Sidhu have taken a dream and turned it into a business, and created a haven for meditation and manicures in a shell of office space in Town Center. Now they are hoping to sustain a successful day spa in the location where one closed about a year ago by offering rich aromas, decadent surroundings and a dose of Eastern traditions.

They might not be discussing it with their buddies in the locker room, but more men are getting their nails buffed and faces exfoliated in spas they once considered reserved for their wives and girlfriends. Blame it on Gentleman's Quarterly magazine or the five gay men on the popular television show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, who turn slovenly men into fashion-conscious hunks. Or maybe it's the metrosexual fad - a phrase the British media popularized to describe soccer star David Beckham and his painted fingernails.

The economy hasn't been kind to Christal Perry's pocketbook, but she's not letting that show in her hair. The private-school teacher's side job as a settlement agent has suffered because fewer people are buying homes, but the Randallstown woman keeps one regular meeting on her schedule - with her stylist, every other week. "It's a luxury I tell myself I deserve," said Perry, 35. But for many customers, the recession is evidenced by roots of a different hue and do-it-yourself treatments.

When Evangelin Pesci started at Renaissance Hair Studio & Day Spa in Cockeysville 10 years ago, she told salon owner Sharon Rose that one day she would do hair on television and show the world what it's really like to be a hairstylist. If creating a praise-winning style using a scary pair of hedge clippers is what a hairstylist's life is like, then it's safe to say she's achieved her goal. ON TV Bravo's Shear Genius airs at 10 tonight.

There are two pretty significant dates on Maryland women's basketball coach Brenda Frese's calendar. One of them is April 3, the night of the NCAA women's championship game in Cleveland. The other big date is May 4, the day Spider-Man 3 opens for wide release. "I'm a huge Spider-Man fan. I will be there at midnight," says Frese, whose love of films was probably bolstered by her 2005 marriage to videographer Mark Thomas, a University of Maryland alum. The couple live just outside Columbia.
