Through teamwork, skin, hair, and nails all get a chance at a new look at J. Michaels Salon and Day Spa. Stylists play offense to render haircuts, dye tresses, and condition locks to achieve the best-looking 'dos possible. Aestheticians show why they are the stalwart defenses of cosmetology; they wax fuzz, administer spray tans, and treat complexions to thorough, relaxing facials. Nail technicians do their part by gussying up all 20 digits, and massage therapists take care of any residual stress by kneading muscles or pretending they are Ringo Starr and your back is a brand-new snare drum—Ringo is a gentle drummer.
The guiding philosophy at Love Yoga Massage can be summed up in two words: "No Om." Here, fitness, stretching, and massage carry more weight than getting zen. The studio's huge list of classes is categorized in groups such as Hot Yoga, Flow Yoga, and Zumba. In addition to yoga classes, Love Yoga offers Thai yoga therapy, which combines traditional Thai massage with Western medicine and massage practices.
Seven days a week, the therapists at May's Foot Reflexology massage specific points on clients' feet, stimulating their nervous systems to boost overall health. The treatment can help the body recover from strain and stress, improve sleep quality, and even prevent issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and a resurfacing childhood fear of "This Little Piggy." For female clients, the therapists include a free upgrade to massage lotion infused with shea butter, jojoba oil, and other skin-softening ingredients.
Tress tamers at Unlimited Styles Spa & Salon slather strands with Brazilian Blowout Zero's protein-packed solution to help smooth and manage frizzy manes. During the approximately two-hour treatment, depending on the length of the client’s hair, the formula’s keratin proteins work to smooth and nourish strands without exposing them to harmful chemicals or peer pressure from delinquent straightening irons. Lustrous locks can parade their new look for up to 12 weeks after the treatment, and if left to air dry, curls will keep their curves, forming soft waves like a rippling waterfall made of football fans.
Shauna Gray has worked hard to earn the title of Master Stylist. During her more than 13 years of experience, she has coowned a salon in Mesa, Arizona and refined her skill set of designer haircutting and coloring techniques. She has researched hair products to find out which best nourish hair, and recommends these products to clients based on their hair needs. Perhaps her most important skill, however, is her listening. Before performing any of her signature treatments, Shauna consults with clients to learn about their lifestyles and wildest hair dreams.
Behind a sleek mahogany desk, a smiling receptionist greets visitors to Trendsetter Salon before they sink into leather chairs to await hair or nail appointments. In the hands of stylist, shears and scissors move in a metallic flurry and blow dryers purr during smoothing treatments. Beyond geometric art mounted on the clean white walls, nail techs perform mani-pedis at cozy stations and cosmeticians deftly apply make-up to accentuate features or make your clown face seem appropriate for discussing fire safety.
